Picture it. You walk out the front door of Coastal Inns and the smell hits you; the unmistakable smell of food being cooked outdoors. Is someone barbecuing? Or is that the smell of one of the many amazing local food trucks throughout The Maritimes? Want to be ready to find your favourite when you visit us? Here are our suggestions.
The Serious Smoke Food Truck makes its way to Moncton weekly while it tours Saint John, Fredericton, and the Hub City. Making some amazing poutine, burgers, and their signature FOOD GRENADES (trust us, they’re incredible), you can find their schedule and menu on their Facebook Page and their website.
OK so hear us out; While the idea of a food truck is a truck that goes places, sometimes it’s better to go to them. That’s the case with Antigonish’s Back East Seafood. An easy 10-minute drive from Coastal Inns, located in front of Pin’s Bowling, Back East Seafood serves up Maritime classics like fish ‘n chips but also gives you something different to chew on, like their signature lobster poutine.
Kalen’s Takeout is another entry in the stationary category – but it still delivers a fairly classic food truck experience and absolutely fits the bill. Seafood specials and takeout icons prepared with a home-cooked approach – they’ve been a local staple for a little while now. A recent Facebook post confirmed they will be opening for the season, but the date has yet to be announced.
Do you love donuts? Do you love donuts that are fresh-made, bite-size, and Instagram-worthy? Then have we got you covered. Ol’ School Donuts makes its way around the HRM dispensing mouthwatering donut deliciousness for all! As they say, they’re a “Tricked Out School bus selling Ol’fashion mini donuts just like Granny use to make!”
In the Halifax/Dartmouth area but not ready for dessert yet? Treat your tastebuds to the Jamaican flavours of Jamdouns Jamaican Canadian Cuisine. Jerk chicken, Jamaican patties, and more are all available, you can find their locations and menu on their Facebook page!
If you find yourself near the Tantramar Marsh and are craving some delicious food, check out Avatar Food Truck’s website and Facebook page. Touring the province with their “Re-Incarnation Of The Finest Indian Cuisine”, Avatar offers Indian and Pakistani classics that look as amazing as they taste! They post their schedule weekly and make regular appearances in Sackville.
Get ready for a delicious summer! This list barely scratches the surface of all the options that we can take advantage of (especially in Moncton/Dieppe and the Halifax/Dartmouth areas). We’ll be sure to keep others on our radar to feature another time! Sometimes, it’s just best to let your appetite lead the way.
