Who needs a food truck festival when music festivals have just as many? WayHome festival last weekend was no exception. I ate my fill of street food. In addition, Drake Hotel also had an area set up with different vendors in the VIP section with all sorts of different items. I ate my fill of things just from this section alone.
First were these fried fish and shrimp with tartar sauce. They were generously seasoned.
I refreshed myself with a raspberry icecream sandwich. It was like a smoothie in between two cookies.
This shrimp salad was a refreshing snack. I also had a watermelon feta salad that was lovely (but I wolfed it down before I took a photo of it).
Lastly they had fresh raw oyster with various dipping sauces. On the final day they had 3 for the price of the previous days so I sort of went crazy and had 12. I had never tried raw oysters before but they went down so well with their sauces (named after headlining bands of the day). Sam Smith was a sweet pomegranate sauce.
The Vitamin Water sponsored section had “clouds” that you could taste in many different flavours.
Afterwards, you were rewarded with some Vitamin Water icecream which was a bit odd.
I love Buster’s Sea Cove’s truck and I always get something every time I see it. I opted for their lobster roll which had generous chunks of lobster.
I also couldn’t resist their keylime pie in an adorable jar!
Hank Daddy’s BBQ served up this beautiful pulled pork parfait. Don’t worry there wasn’t any ice cream in it, just mashed potatoes, BBQ sauce, pulled pork and beans!
Umami Bites filled my belly with these Pork Belly Wonton Tacos.
Lastly, I had these delicious ribs from a place I can’t seem to remember the name to, which is sad because I’d love to eat these ribs again in their brick and mortar restaurant which they mentioned was on the Danforth! If you happen to know, you’d make me the happiest person.
Update: I found out through the app that it was Uncle Smoke BBQ who bring St. Louis style BBQ to their delicious meat.
I realized that I forgot to post the food of Field Trip and Bestival this year so those will be coming soon in a round-up post. Eat with you again soon!
