With the Winnipeg summer heat soon drawing to a close and the inevitable onset of fall close at hand I set out to redouble my efforts and visit as many of the new food trucks that now dot the Winnipeg lunchtime streets. Yesterday found me in familiar territory on Broadway Avenue where the majority of lunchtime food trucks are known to set up shop.
As it turned out my choice was an easy one, turning off Main Street the first truck that met my eye was a new to me, the On a Roll Sandwich Truck. Painted an eye-catching bright green announcing “Bringing the flavours of the world to the streets of Winnipeg” was an offer I simply could not refuse.
The menu pasted to the side of the truck spoke of simple family favorites from around the world delivering on the promises of their motto. Shrimp Po’ Boys representing the Louisiana coast of the United States, Jerked Chicken Sandwich giving a taste of Jamaican spicy influences. For a more savory note a patron could try the ever popular, if confusing Chicken and Waffles. Even vegetarians are welcomed with a falafel patty Banh-Mi sandwich representing the best of French and Vietnamese influences.
