T.O’s streetmeat just got more edible, maybe kinda

a new "smartcart" by the Rogers Centre

No longer do Toronto’s meats from the streets consist solely of hot dogs, sausages and other surprises wrapped in mysteries. Talk of this has been going on for a long time, and they’ve finally arrived, deemed with the name “Smart Carts”, aw. They’re all over the popular spots of Toronto, like Nathan Philips Square, the Rogers Centre, The Annex, and Yonge and St. Clair. There’s chicken slouvaki, Greek salad, saffron rice with chicken and/or veggies and yogurt sauce, flat bread filled with more vegetables, yaiza. This is all well and good, but street salad? Just a little bit sketch although Toronto Public Heath has said A.O.K.

I am definitely going to give this a try at some point, despite that all the food critics from the Toronto Star HATED IT. Maybe they need to try it intoxicated at 3 a.m because I know that’s when the old fashioned streetmeat tasted it’s very best. Even if it is gross, I still give the city an A for effort on this one, variety is always good and it’s most likely at least a little healthier than mystery sausage.
