Last week, I went to a picnic in the park-wait for it-ing lot. What, parking lot? Yeah, how else could we check out the spiffy new Triple O’s food truck!
Triple O’s just launched its first mobile food truck. In fact, it’s the very first food truck in Canada that is owned by a quick service restaurant chain.
My first thought is that it’s entering the food truck scene in Vancouver. Nope. This food truck will be visiting around town, dropping by community events, and it may even show up at your next corporate party! Better yet, it’s also served a test kitchen where they serve menu items that are not available anywhere else and collect feedback from customers. And that’s exactly what we did at the picnic.
Here is what we had:
A drink to start to quench our thirst…it was warm that day!
This was our appetizer and it’s a big portion for appy. I honestly don’t think I could ever finish it even if I were eating just this.
Our burger entree – it’s similar to the BBQ burger on its regular menu, with the addition of chipotle BBQ sauce. It has chipotle sauce, bacon and cheddar cheese.
We tried two milkshakes as our drinks, and desserts. The Candied Orange Creamsicle was quite creamy, not too sweet. But the Peanut Butter Mocha was rather thick and rich – not sure if I can handle a regular-sized one.
I took a tour inside the food truck and it’s very nicely built. It has a nice ventilation system and its own power generator, so it doesn’t have to worry about finding a plug when it’s parked. The interior is stainless steel and well-equipped for quality service.
At the end of the picnic, we each filled out a questionnaire to provide some feedback on the food. Overall, I think these new items are consistent with the current menu offering and will make a good addition to the Triple O’s menu. Who knows, you may see some or all of them at a Triple O’s fairly soon!
