I am actually not just talking about food trucks! Yes, its still a really trendy thing to track down a food truck all over Toronto so that you get to enjoy some Korean BBQ ribs. There is more to mobility than that! I have a mix of mobile food experiences that I think will be a great compliment to your next event:
6 Mobile Dessert Stations
Marble Slab Sundae Bar: Technically, you can easily do this one on your own and save the extra dollars but, if you like the convenience of a Full Service Sundae Bar, it is fully available to you. You get to choose 3 flavours, some tasty toppings and all the regular sundae accouterments like fudge and caramel syrup, whip cream and cherries. The beauty of this is that depending on the amount of guests you have, you will have 1 or 2 staff there to help you set up, serve and clean up. Cost is roughly $8/person.
Paris Crêpes Café: They do crêpes! And they do them well. For 2 hours, you can have one of their chefs’ come to your event and they will whip out some sweet or savoury crêpes. The sweet crêpes are pretty standard with a variety of topings that range from fruit, nutella or different jams. The savoury crêpes all have cheese in them and you can add some salmon, spinach herbs or bacon. Did I mention that this is ALL YOU CAN EAT? That’s right, for $7.50 per person, your guests can eat as many sweet crêpes they can ingest and for $17.50 per person you can do both sweet and savoury crêpes.
Manual Labour Coffee: When I first saw ‘Frankie,’ a yellow 1969 Bailey Travel Trailer, a few times around Toronto, I was wondering what that was all about. People were queuing up to get what? Coffee? What’s awesome is that you can actually have ‘Frankie’ come to your next party. Even if you don’t have space for Frankie outside, Manual Labour Coffee also have a retro 1950s ‘pop up’ kitchen that can easily be set up indoors. You’ll get premium roasted coffee used to make espresso-based drinks such as lattes, hot chocolate, apple cider and some yummy baked cookies from Lindsay Bakes. For 3 hours, catering starts at $275 but you also have to factor a per guest rate.
Pop Stand: One of the things that I miss the most about summer is the Davisville Farmer’s Market that would take place every Tuesday at the June Rowlands Park. It was there that I first got a taste of Kari Marshall’s Pop Stand. She makes some killer popsicles! Her skills are pretty impressive since she always comes up with some original and refreshing flavours like grapefruit, maple, mint and vanilla all in one frozen pop or a strawberry lavender lemonade pop. My favourite of the summer was the Peach Bourbon Iced Tea frozen pop that I have renamed Aunty Mae’s Atlanta Sweet Tea Popsicle.
