Winnipeg Food Truck Guide

Food truck season is back, and so is our largest annual guide. 

This guide has it all (or at least every truck we could find), including past favourites (several dating all the way back to our inaugural 2013 guide), plenty of past ManyFest Food Truck Wars champions and couple very interesting newbies –– including the city’s greenest truck –– who are ready to sling curb-side culinary creations.   

Meet the the city’s 60+ food trucks.  


A Little Pizza Heaven  
That garlic-buttered crust is a godsend, bringing standard pies like double pepperoni, buffalo chicken and Heavenly Veggie to a higher plane. Its mobile unit isn’t always in use (so find it on Insta below), but you can always catch individual slices and full pies at its storefront locations in Osborne Village (for your post-bar snack) and on Ness, Regent, St. Anne and Pembina (Fort Richmond). Check out Little Pizza's Instagram and Facebook for updates.    

Baekho–Taste of Korea 
Winnipeg's sole Korean food truck, Baekho slings bowls featuring bulgogi, je-yuk (spicy pork) or sam-gyeop-sal (pork belly) that come with rice and several types of banchan (those fabulous, fermented, crunchy Korean condiments). The pickled radish with Korean sweet chilli sauce and the glass noodles with shiitake mushrooms are delicious.  No social media — making this truck as elusive as its namesake — but we have seen it on Broadway during happier times by the Legislative Building.   

Bao House   
Its first summer season in 2018 was so successful that it led to the opening of Bao House restaurant on Corydon Avenue. The restaurant has been serving steamed buns, Japadog-inspired hot dogs, sliders and sushi towers since March 2019. From now through October, the bun mobile is in action, tossing baos done in the style that David Chang made famous in North America. Check its Instagram for locations.      

BBK’s operation has been on the festival and special event circuit since 2005, which is where you’ll find them once again this summer. This place is all about barbecue, with applewood-smoked brisket and pork shoulder, signature apple-butter barbecue sauce and all the classic sides. Be sure to grab napkins. Check out its Facebook.

Best Meal  
This truck first appeared in 2017 on Broadway, specializing in Middle Eastern dishes like kibbe, lamb and beef kabobs, shawarma and falafel. The extensive menu also includes fries and burgers. No social media for locations.   

Big Daddy's Perogies  and More
Since the closure of the could-have-been-legendary Better than Baba's, Winnipeg's streets have been missing quality food truck pierogis. Enter Big Daddy, an extension of Minnie's Handmade Ethnic Treats in Lundar, Manitoba, that went to wheels in late 2020. It specializes in steamed pierogis, with two staples – classic cheddar potato and pulled pork – also available deep-fried. Find it on Facebook.    

Bigg Smoak BBQ  
Steinbach’s serious barbecue joint, Bigg Smoak BBQ, Smokehouse and Grill, has had a mobile unit since 2021. On it, you’ll find the same award-winning brisket, along with plenty of smoked meats and sides. Follow them on Instagram and Facebook for upcoming dates and locations.   

Blank Slush 
This truck is a big deal in teal when it comes to bubble tea. This season's menu features fresh-squeezed lemonade infused with dragon fruit, strawberries, or blue raspberry; seven types of slushes (including taro, Oreo cocoa, and mango); and various milk teas with boba. New for 2024 are milk pudding and soy pudding desserts, available in original, mango, and red bean flavours. You can find them using Instagram.

Blue Haze BBQ
Blue Haze BBQ’s "rib mobile" is a catering extension of its barbecue shop in Beausejour, MB. Its award-winning meats (including a slew of first, second and third-place finishes for its chicken, ribs and brisket, respectively, at the now defunct Winnipeg BBQ & Blues Festival) are rubbed with a blend of spices and seasonings then smoked over select hardwoods for around 16 hours. To close out 2023, Blue Haze was named the champions of Brandon, MB's Food Truck Warz. Follow its  Instagram to keep up with locations and dates.   

Bright Side Kitchen 
Bright Side Kitchen is Manitoba’s only vegan food truck, offering up a variety of comfort food. They opened in 2022 and made a name for themselves with their “Plant Boy” – a take on Winnipeg’s iconic Fat Boy. They offer a variety of comfort food such as burgers, dogs, tacos and nachos. You can find them throughout the city and at many of the iconic musical festivals hosted in the province. Go to Instagram for current locations. 

Casama Food Truck  
The newest concept from Charlee’s Restaurant & Lounge, this Filipino-Mexican food truck started rolling in August 2021. The menu features items like sinigang tacos, kilawin, campechana and loaded elote (corn with calamansi butter rolled in chicharon and flaming hot Cheetos — now say that three times fast!). Catch this blue truck with LED lights and a sleek feathered design at the Tyndall Community Market every Saturday and Sunday with free admission and free parking. Check out its Instagram for updates.

This sleek Filipino food truck served its first customers on May 18, 2019. Champs is by the same owners as Charlee's Restaurant and Lounge, and its street eats include BBQ pork skewers, chicken wings, kare kare poutine, sisig poutine (sunny side up egg and all!), rice bowls, pork lumpia and sandwiches, along with cool treats like calamansi slushies and numerous types of halo-halo. During its first ManyFest Food Truck Wars, Champs took the “Most Original” title. Follow on Instagram for updates on locations.   

Cinder Hill Barbecue  
If you're a fan of delicious BBQ and smoked meats, check out the massive Cinder Hill BBQ food truck. Its menu features a variety of BBQ classics, including brisket, pulled pork, ribs and ribbon fry poutines. The star of the show is their signature Pig Wings – tender, juicy pork shanks smoked to perfection and served with your choice of sauce. Find them at Kroeker Farms (the Potato Store) and use Instagram for more locations.  

The Churro Stop  
The Churro Stop is an award-winning food truck and catering business by Jacko and Tara Garcia that has been running steady since 2015. On top of a pretty tidy selection of delectable churros –– including stuffed versions filled with chocolate, Bavarian cream, and berry coulis –– the menu also features authentic Argentinian street food (particularly empanadas in a variety of flavours) using Jacko's family recipes from the province of Cordoba, Argentina. Find them at FreshCo on Pembina (1319 Pembina Highway), along with various locations that are updated using Instagram

Donna’s Food Truck 
This truck offers burgers, sandwiches, tacos and fries that are all of a very high standard, all using local suppliers. The fries come with a secret spice blend and can be made into poutine using bison or roasted bone marrow gravy; the regular smash burger slays, as does the vegan shiitake mushroom and barely version; while people rave about the pulled pork sandwich with lime crema and the 12-hour braised brisket used for the hot beef sandwich. The buns and breads too are locally made using organic wheat, and the tacos use braised pork shoulder and are topped with slaw and pickled onion. You can also cool off with drinks like the sparkling honey hibiscus lemonade and cold brew coffee from Thom Bargen. Check out their Instagram for locations and updates, which regularly includes breweries like Sookram's and Barn Hammer.      

Donut Forget Your Coffee  
Coffee, doughnuts and lemonade? Talk about a triple threat. This truck is back for summer 2024, serving all of the above, replete with the best rooftop mascot you’ll see in the city with its angry doughnut chasing a jaunty cup of coffee. Follow their Instagram to keep up with various locations in the city.   

Driven Kitchen    
This green truck team started wheeling gourmet burgers using certified Angus ground chuck or a Beyond Meat patty, chicken wings, chicken fingers and fries. We’ve seen it at FreshCo on Jefferson, while they also update locations on Instagram.

Engocha Ethiopian Eatery
The city's first-ever Ethiopian food truck serves authentic Ethiopian cuisine that will transport your taste buds to the bustling streets of Addis Ababa. The menu features a variety of traditional dishes including injera (a spongy sourdough flatbread) served with savoury stews like their signature dish, doro wot – a spicy chicken stew made with berbere spice, onions, garlic and ginger. Vegan options also a-plenty! The super friendly owners love sharing their culture with others and are always happy to chat about food or Ethiopia. The use Facebook for locations and updates.  

Euro Donair   
A regular participant at ManyFest Food Truck Wars, you can normally typically find this food truck parked at the Home Depot by CF Polo Park. It doesn’t appear to have any social media accounts, so go with the intention of eating meat wrapped in pita served with a yogurt-based sauce.   

Extreme Fries     
Homecook Bobbie Mack had been selling her sweet pickle relish for over a decade at Pine Ridge Hollow before getting into the food truck game with this bright pink truck. Extreme fries and a large selection of poutine like chicken bacon ranch and maple bacon. This graffiti-ed truck will be all over the city, so best to follow Instagram for live updates. You may also have even seen it in a music video with Al Simmons and Rusty Matyas.   

Feastro Global Bistro   
This multi-cuisine truck is back serving up eastern and southern Mediterranean items like a chickpea curry feast box, butter chicken naan tacos, falafel, chicken shawarma and beef kebab (available as a wrap or plate with salad, rice, hummus and pita). Don’t get us started on the hot garlic crispy potatoes. Often found at the St. Norbert Farmers’ Market, while you can follow it on Instagram for updates.     

Firebird Grilled Chicken and Smokies 
This truck has a blazing orange facade and one amazing logo featuring a chicken skewering a smokie over a flaming grill. The menu is all about flame-kissed meats, namely chicken breasts prepared in a number of styles all served on their award-winning potato bun. Along with loaded smokies (using Old Country Sausage) and a double patty smash burger, you can also get a grilled chicken salad for a gluten-free option. Find them using Instagram. 


Fired Up-Mobile Wood Fired Pizza   
Fired Up is one of Winnipeg’s OG new-school trucks that stands out with the chewy charred crust and simple ingredients. If you see the pear, cambozola and balsamic crema pizza on the menu that day, you must order it! The chefs also occasionally do a beet and kubasa pizza with a white garlic sauce that is out of control. Check   for location updates on Instagram.

G.G. Gelati   
This beachy, colourful orange trailer is an extension of the iconic Italian gelato shop at 705 Corydon Avenue that opened in 1995. This summer, they’ll once again use this mobile version to showcase the dozens of flavours you can find at the shop – from the fruity to the decadent. We usually go for lemon and raspberry or hazelnut and vanilla, while the shop also offers milkshakes and a selection of boba. Check out its Instagram to see where the truck is.    

Goldie’s Fries   
For 29 years now, Goldies’s has been serving everything from burgers to poutine, fries, hotdogs, chicken burgers and perogies. You can spot owner Darryl Leiman (#legend) and The Goldies truck at Old Market Square every day from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., bringing all those positive vibes to The Exchange. Check  Facebook for updates.   

The Gravy Train  
Manitoba’s coolest new food truck will be ‘riding the rails’ in 2024! The Gravy Train serves up plenty of poutine, using fresh cut golden fries, homemade gravy and gourmet toppings. Also serving fresh squeezed lemonade! No social media yet. 

Ice Cream 4 Tacos  
Food trucks with pun names will always be winners, particularly when they combine two of our favourite things. On the sweet side, this yellow truck serves waffle cone tacos (yes, they make the waffles) stuffed with things like Oreo ice cream. On the savoury, there's a taco in a bag and flour tortilla burritos. It started in June 2021 and you can find it on Instagram.        

The Indigenous Kitchen  
Owner and chef Tara Hall is from the Pinaymootang First Nation and is a Red Seal graduate of Red River College Polytechnic Culinary Arts. Her truck was originally called Aboriginal Fusion, with its unique take on bannock tacos, bison burgers, taco fries and fish and chips using local walleye (pickerel). In 2023, Hall rebranded it as The Indigenous Kitchen, with a whole new menu featuring a wide selection of bannock burgers, a bannock taco, and a large selection of burgers. For hours and locations, go to the Facebook page.   

Jojo’s Wood Fire Italian Kitchen
On top of wood fired pizzas that are cooked right in the truck, this newer concept also does a selection of paninis and a wide variety of fruit smoothies. If you’re looking to snack, there’s arancini and several croquette variations – including mac and cheese bites and tuna with potato and jalapeño. No social media for locations, but the website lists all the forthcoming festivals it will be at.     

Just a Little Squeeze   
Made with real fruit and no syrups, this lime-green coloured lemonade serving truck is the go-to on hot summer days. You can spot this truck at a variety of locations across the city, including the St. Norbert Farmers’ Market, St. Adolphe Market, Winkler Harvest, Summer in the City (Steinbach), Gimli’s Icelandic Festival and Fun with Family Day just outside of Portage La Prairie. Check out  Instagram.  

Just Loaded    
While Just Loaded's name refers to how much they stack between two slices of bread, it would also be fitting for that other version as this menu is drunk food at its finest. Its specialty is The Zinger, a house-made Montreal-style smoked brisket sandwich on rye. This year, the ever-changing menu features heavily loaded things like Philly cheese steaks, bourbon bacon jam burgers, and triple stacker burgers, while you can also choose from a variety of sides and drinks. You can spot this truck at most festivals, and they’re even travelling to Regina this year for their expedition fair! Check out  Instagram for updates on locations. 

Kalesa Korner Food Truck - New for 2024
The city’s newest food truck is the mobile extension of Kalesa Korner, a new Filipino restaurant in The Maples (675 Jefferson Avenue; the former home of Pares Bistro). Named after the original two-wheeled horse-drawn carriages of the Philippines, Kalesa brings all the classics to the streets, including crispy pork kare-kare, sisig with rice and sunny side up egg, grilled liempo (pork belly), and a number of refreshing drinks like mango cucumber juice and smoothies. Unexpectedly, they also make beef shawarma bowls and sui mai too. Use Instagram to find its location.

Knapsack Coffee  
This mobile coffee sensation’s owner-operator Quinton Anderson operates out of a retro 1978 Boler camper and often sets up along Winnipeg's bike routes. Knapsack Coffee offers a delightful and energetic coffee experience, whether at community events or private gatherings, this full-service coffee shop on wheels serves drip coffee, espresso, friendly vibes and often doughnuts from Oh Doughnuts too. When winter arrives, its indoor mobile espresso bar continues to deliver exceptional brews. Mobile operations open from May 4 – October 31. Find it on Instagram.   

KYU Grill 
KYU Grill is the city’s most decorated food truck, having been the perennial People’s Choice ManyFest Food Truck Wars Champion and the Food Truck Warz Brandon Champion. It is back for another season with those signature robatayaki-inspired skewered heroshima sandwiches, along with a range of Japanese-Hawaiian fusion dishes and birria tacos. If you can’t make it to the trucks, KYU now has physical locations around Winnipeg. Check Instagram for locations. 

Little Bones Wingery   
Alex Goertzen, Transcona's "King of Wings," is certainly no chicken when making big flavours fly. His Little Bones company started as a food truck in 2012. Now they do more things to wings than you can imagine. The truck features 40-plus flavours of wings, which you can find by Little Brown Jug on Friday and Saturday nights. Look to Facebook for up-to-date locations of the truck, including a list of festivals it will be at.    

The Little Eggplant    
This Italian food truck is back for summer 2023, having first started in 2018 with a unique concept that focuses on ultra-fresh paninis. How fresh, you say? Well, they press the raw dough right on the truck, creating the most pillowy base that is then loaded with house-made pesto, cheeses and cured meats. It also serves Italian desserts like gelato tarts and cannoli. The truck offers services for private parties as well. Find it on Instagram or visit The Little Eggplant deli at 1853 Main Street.  

This old-school truck has stood the test of time as one of the city's original food trucks dishing out burgers (with fried onions), fries and various other comfort food bites. Look for the white truck with red trim and fun food pics at 333 Broadway.  When you are this legendary, you don't need social media. 

Miss Tiny’s Jamaican Food Truck    
There is nothing tiny about the flavours coming out of this large, colourful truck. Established in 2018, Miss Tiny is back for the summer serving an authentic Jamaican menu of patties, jerk chicken served on rice and peas, ackee and plantain, and even a jerk poutine. The truck is most often parked at the Wholesale Club on Ellice (11 p.m. to 4 p.m.). Check out its Instagram for location updates.    

Mighty Micki’s Mini Donuts
Ah, the sweet smell of childhood. Unlike standard mini doughnuts, these puppies are made using a signature dough that gets hit with high quality cinnamon sugar after frying. The apple pie mini doughnuts will rock your tastebuds world, and the cape-sporting super hero doughnut logo gets bonus points. Check out its Instagram for updates and other locations.  

My Heart Melts  
This is not your mama's grilled cheese featuring Kraft singles. This is, to quote from the owners, "a cheese lover's paradise on wheels, where each bite is a journey into gooey goodness and creative combinations." That's a big sell, but when you consider that options include pulled pork grilled cheese on golden-grilled artisan bread, or a carb-a-rama-ding-dong mac n' cheese grilled cheese, it's all gouda. Use Instagram for locations. 

Nacho Mama’s 
Nacho Mama's serves up heaping portions of Mexican food out of its massive trailer. Find everything from chimichangas to tacos to ribbon fries to nachos (of course), loaded up with queso and all the toppings you can handle. Plenty of vegetarian and gluten-free options too. Track them down on Instagram  

Pacific Spring Roll Catering   
You can catch this family-owned food truck serving all things spring rolls (pork and veggie—incredible bang for your buck), as well as burgers, pulled pork sandwiches, chicken strips, fries and poutine. They are usually located at the St. Norbert Farmers Market every Saturday and Wednesday from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. while they use Instagram for updates.   

Pippy’s Schnitzel Express
Pippy's Schnitzel is a family-run truck that's been serving delicious schnitzel to Manitobans for years. Each schnitzel is made to order, using only fresh ingredients and traditional techniques. Whether you prefer classic pork or chicken or want to try something different with their daily special, Pippy's has you covered. They are Steinbach-based, but often come to the city for all the festivals. They have a Facebook account, but it's not updated often.    

Pop Cart    
This storied cart was first started by Angela Farkas and Alana Fiks, two culinary stars who own and run the amazing Black Market Provisions. Popcart was their first venture, which they started as a side project in 2015. In 2018, after opening Black Market, the pops took a backseat, but recently they’ve been resurrected by Ryan Wiebe and Shawn Vidal from Bones and Marrow Broth Company (one of our favourite local makers), who purchased the biz. The pops are made with simple ingredients like natural fruit, cane sugar, coconut milk, vanilla, fresh herbs and spices. Keep up with the cart’s locations on Instagram.  

This circa-2021 truck comes courtesy of WestJet pilot-turned-food-entrepreneur Erin Popoff, who specializes in putting poached eggs on vibrant creations featuring plenty of locally grown ingredients. These plates are about as pretty as you're going to see coming out of a food truck, with daily specials like the "next level fish n' chips" Eunoia, featuring pan-seared walleye spiced with an everything bagel, slow-roasted potatoes and dill pickle carrot slaw on a crispy wonton base (with a perfectly poached egg on top, of course). You can follow Erin's personal Instagram for updates and menu items.      

Potoba is the newest Indian food truck to hit the streets of Winnipeg, having started in spring 2022. Its specialty is katori chatt – a fried shredded potato basket filled with curried vegetables. There’s plenty more too, like butter chicken poutine, peri peri seasoned cheese fries and even a selection of bao. Check out its website for updates.  

Prairie Solar Cafe  
One of the city’s newest trucks is also its greenest, being literally built for sunny days. Prairie Solar Cafe is the brainchild of Stephen Kang, who has made a solar-powered trailer – and a super cute one at that – that specializes in drinks along with mochi doughnuts from  Umaido and occasionally some bright salads and a selection of paninis. After opening in autumn 2023 and working several events along with regular appearances at the St. Norbert Farmers’ Market, Prairie Solar Cafe can currently be found at 405 Broadway from Monday to Friday. The current menu (you can pre-order online) has all your classic coffee and tea drinks, Wolseley Kombucha on tap, Italian sodas and rotating flavours of doughnuts from Umaido. Find regular updates on Instagram.    

PVG Street Eats    
PVG first hit Winnipeg in 2016 as PVG’s Breakfast Club, with all the members of the Brat Pack emblazoned on the truck to accompany your eggy sandwiches. While breakfast is gone, Molly and the gang remain (including a blazin’ Brian Johnson – he was “the brain”) beckoning you for a selection of burgers that’s as diverse as those kids in weekend detention. While you might not see the truck as much these days, given the PVG team also owns the new kiosk at The Forks called Crafted Crust, it will be making regular stops at events at places like Barn Hammer Brewing. They’ll also still be announcing food truck locations on Instagram.   

The Red Ember   
Like Clifford the Big Red Dog, this big red truck is enormous – once North America's second-largest food truck – and was handcrafted by owner Steffen Zinn from a shipping container. The pizza, featuring local ingredients and a unique spice blend, has always been a hit (I have no problem saying it is some of the best pizza you will ever try), often resulting in long lines. Zinn and business partner Quin Ferguson also operate Red Ember Common and Wienerpeg in The Forks Market, along with Wall Street Slice (with co-owners Edelman Miranda and Michael Sung) – a New York-style pizza joint. Check out Facebook for truck updates, along the with the St. Norbert Farmers' Market where it makes regular appearances.   

Simba Safari Grill 
Representing foods from all over Africa (particularly the Serengeti), Simba specializes in grilled meats and super flavourful curries. This summer, they are regularly at the St. Norbert Farmers’ Market rocking out dishes like mahamri (coconut doughnuts), samosas, and an assortment of curries served with their house made chapati. Don't sleep on the beautiful sukuma wiki, which traditionally uses collard greens but here they use spinach and kale that is simmered with onions, tomatoes and coconut cream. Simba is the 2016 Food Truck Wars winner for "best bang for your buck." Find them regularly updating locations on Instagram.   

Smoked and Sauced Mobile BBQ  
While technically a Brandon-based food truck, we're still putting this meaty machine on the list as it often makes it to Winnipeg to join the festival circuit. Since 2017, this family-run biz from owner Jayson McCallum utilizes a large smoker that gets towed around on an even larger trailer behind the flaming food truck. McCallum has over 20 years of experience in the kitchen and his truck specializes in barbecued ribs, pulled pork poutine, brisket and all those essential sides that bring out the barbecue experience. Use its Facebook account for locations and updates.   

Smoke'n Bob's Hot Dogs  
This family-run business has been at it since 1990, using only top dogs (aka Winnipeg Old Country Sausage products) between Harvest Bakery buns. It's this commitment to local, along with being a "taste sensation" that not even Mo Willems' pigeon would dare share (sorry, Duckling),* that ensures it makes this guide. Plus, there are gluten-free and vegetarian options available too. Bob also now specializes in large corporate and school events, as well as servicing their multiple locations. Check out Instagram account to see where they’re located.    

Street Delights   
Its robust menu ranges from traditional Indo-Chinese cuisine, to panipuri, butter chicken poutine and really zesty numbers when it comes to burgers, including the Kung Fu noodle burger – a deep fried potato patty loaded with vegetable noodles. The spring rolls & Afghani momos are said to be the bomb. This big bus is regularly found at 1295 Pembina Highway, along with regular updates on Instagram.    

Sweet and Salty Concessions   
When it comes to a food truck fleet, you can’t beat salty and sweet. Owner/operator Marcel Petit runs four truck/trailers under the Sweet and Salty umbrella, bringing with him 21 years of food truck experience running this family company. The fleet includes three mini-doughnut trailers, The Meltdown (a deep-fried cheese curds mobile) and a Beavertails truck. Talk about range! See its Instagram for regular updates.  

La Taqueria Mexican Street Tacos   
This authentic taqueria has been garnering rave reviews since it opened in the summer of 2021. Cristhel Pipper came to Winnipeg from Córdoba, Veracruz, in 2019 after she married her husband (a resident of Sunny St. James) Lyle Jackman. Together, this couple is knocking it out of the park when it comes to meticulously crafted, authentic cuisine from pozole to cochinita pibil and a mushroom al pastor that is going to blow you away (take note, vegans). Between private bookings, you can usually find them at the Unicity Canadian Tire parking lot (3615 Portage Ave) on Tuesday, Friday and Saturday from noon to 7 p.m. and Sundays from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. But, Cristhel says it is best to check on Instagram first as they will regularly update the truck’s location there. If the truck is not out, you can always visit the taqueria at 1863 Ness Ave, Unit B.  

Trendy Treats   
Ice cream, you scream. We all scream for boozy ice cream! Trendy Treats specializes in hard ice cream and Swiss Ice (somewhere between a sorbet and a slushy). Adult (aka booze-infused) ice cream flavours include Bailey’s, Amaretto, port and sweet bourbon, while for Swiss Ices, you’ll find sangria, peach Bellini and Piña Colada. They also offer non-dairy options on their alcohol and regular flavours. All of this sounds terribly exciting, while you can also purchase numerous kid-friendly flavours from the truck in both ice cream and Swiss Ice form. You can find them at the Morris Stampede, Gimli Ice Fest, Winkler Harvest Festival and Brandon Food Truck Warz this season. See its trendy website here for more locations.    

Tot Wheels
Manitoba’s original tater tot food truck and the perennial favourite on Broadway and at ManyFest Food Truck Wars. Tot Wheels started in 2013 and accumulated some impressive honours, including "Best Presentation" and the "Most Original" trophy in 2018. The team hand-rolls the tots and loads them up to create dishes like maple bacon poutine — all using local ingredients too. Along with tots, the truck offers burgers like the Firebirdbird (buttermilk chicken glazed in maple chili, spicy mayo, pickled onions, dill pickles, and a Gunns Bakery potato bun), all served with a side of tots. Follow along on Instagram for locations.   

Tulum Treats
For the past six years, Tulum Treats has been hitting the festival circuit, along with the occasional appearance on Broadway. This green truck, replete with a moustachioed sombrero-sporting man as a logo, specializes in tacos on flour tortillas, plenty of cool treats and some deep-fried fare too, including jalapeño poppers and hand-cut fries topped with Latin-inspired fixin's. Follow it on Instagram.   

The Walleye Wagon  
This truck, which started rolling in 2014, is owned and operated by David Jonasson. He’s a commercial fisherman in Riverton, Manitoba, on Lake Winnipeg, so you better believe he knows his product. The walleye fillets are beer battered and available individually or inside a taco, while the truck also serves fries using Manitoba potatoes. Follow on Instagram

Willy Dogs  
This small but mighty hot dog cart has been family-owned and operating since 2018. Owner Will Gault has over two decades of experience in the biz and he only uses quality local meats from Winnipeg Old Country Sausage Ltd. and buns from City Bread. They make their fresh toppings daily, and veggie dogs are available too. Find it using Instagram.    

Za Pizza Bistro   
This booming Manitoba-based casual pizza chain went mobile in 2022, adding to its roster of 10 storefronts found across the province. Owned by local entrepreneur Blair Mckibbon – who has been in plenty of these Winnipeg Food Truck guides with his retired concepts Healthy Eats and Burgers are Us – Za's truck brings the same 11" pizza format to the streets, allowing customers to choose between the thin(ish) regular crust or gluten-free cauliflower crust, with numerous sauce, cheese, and topping options too. Follow it on Instagram for truck locations and all the various storefronts.     

*Cool parents of young children will appreciate this joke.
