Curb Crave sells Canadian comfort classics out of a truck that you’d be more likely to expect to appear in front on you while sitting on a barstool. Epic poutine, hot wings and basic burgers are on the menu here.
They also blend global influences into these iconic items, knowing that the streets of Toronto are demanding of more diverse tastes like tandoori tacos and wings.
Their cutely named and utterly Torontonian Hotline Wings ($10 for a pound) come in a good array of flavours, from cajun dusted to Thai red curry, tandoori and honey garlic.
The only challenge is making this saucy fave that typically requires two hands translate to the street, though ample wet wipes are provided.
You can also simply order these juicy, nicely sized bad boys in mild, medium, or hot, and they come with blue cheese or ranch dip. The medium packs a punch without being overly spicy, and the tandoori has an even hotter kick to it.
I like the lightening flavour that a little fresh cilantro brings.
The Tando Toti Taco ($6 for one, $10 for two) envelops chunks of flavourful tandoori chicken in soft Embassy roti bread with balancing yogurt, cilantro, and grilled onion and peppers. The easiest to carry, this is by far one of their most popular items.
The Curb Burger ($6 for a single, $8 for a double) is a straight-up classic with pickles and cheese.
For $3, you can make all these into combos that include hand-cut fries and a drink.
If you’re going to call it the Great Canadian Poutine ($8), it better have bacon on it. A good sized portion of their hand-cut fries are smothered in cheese and gravy and topped with crispy bacon.
Curb Crave makes it so that you now no longer have to wait for work to end and the bar to open at five o’clock to hit those wings and burgers. Now you can chow down on your favourites right on the sidewalk.
