As it turned out nature’s bark was worse than its bite as several hundred Edmontonians braved the threatening weather late Friday afternoon for What The Truck.
The recently announced local food event started at 4 p.m. in sunshine but later on the clouds rolled in, and there was very little rain after all. That didn’t stop the crowds from lining up at the seven food vendors at Beaverhills House Park at Jasper Ave and 105 Street.
There was a long line at the Filistix trailer, but it was worth it. I had the Pulled Pork Filicombo, with the coconut rice and Filistix signature slaw. Tasty and filling.
Didn’t have time to try the other trucks but I’m hoping to get to them next time.
