Recap: What the Truck?! @ Al Fresco

We’re a little behind on these recaps, but we’ll start with What the Truck?! @ Al Fresco, which took place on 104 Street on June 9, 2012. This was the first WTT where we partnered with an existing event, and we’d like to think it went pretty well, in spite of the overcast conditions!

What the Truck?!

It was our biggest WTT to date, with ten trucks participating. Diners had a plethora of choices, from roasted pork belly to crack ‘n’ cheese and Cajun halibut sandwiches and steamed barbecue pork buns.

We were also thrilled that Battista’s Calzones debuted their brand new Calzonemobile at the event. They were the first to sell out, too!

The Battista’s crew had a blast

In total, the trucks raised $4000 for the Zebra Child Protection Centre, which was chosen as this year’s Al Fresco charity of choice. Enjoying good food for a good cause – what could be better?

Thanks again to everyone who came out!
