Emelle’s Westside Wheels was at EPIC, the sustainable living festival last weekend. Looking at the 12 or so food carts, I gravitated towards this food truck. I’ve heard much of Emelle’s amazing catering services, but was curious how they would fare as a food truck.
There was a long line up and the speed of service was quite slow during the noon hour. There were about 8 people in front of me, so imagine the wait.
Looking at their menu, they mostly have sandwiches. I thought they would have something more intricate beside sandwiches, tacos and soup. It was really hard deciding what to order.
On the left we have Mike’s Breakfast and in the back there is a bacon bomb.
Bacon Bombs ($4) is a slider with a slice of herb ground turkey wrapped in bacon and some vegetables. The turkey was nice and lean and had great flavour with the bacon wrapped around it. On the other hand, it was a bit expensive for a slider, which you’d finish in a few bites.
Mike’s Breakfast ($5) has a large egg, 2 slices of thick cut bacon, melted Canadian cheddar cheese, slices of tomato, and mayo on a toasted ciabatta bun. The bun was soft, but a bit thick. It tasted alright.
Overall, the food cart was ok. Simple sandwiches.
