Embarrassingly, this is my first time at the Just For Laugh festival. Shame on me for not knowing how great this event is. It was so fun that I went for a second time.
It became inevitable that my hunger needed to be alleviated. That was when my path ended up to 2 food trucks.
Pas D’Cochon Dans Mon Salon
For the first vist, I had the pulled pork sandwich at Pas D’Cochon Dans Mon Salon. The portion was incredibly generous, to the point where I wished there were less pulled pork and more lettuces. The existence of the lettuce was only known as the end of my consumption, where I saw 2 leaves of lettuce shyly peeking out from the end of the bun. The beginning bites were very satisfying until half-way through, the sandwich became too heavy. I’m good without pulled pork for a few months. So far, I think this is the only food truck where the price is justified by the food.
P.A. & Gargantua
In the search of Le Cheese Truck for their grilled cheese I’m much curious about. Without any sight of Le Cheese, I saw a menu filled with grilled cheese offered by P.A. & Gargantua. Why not? At the spur of the moment, a 14$ grilled cheese was simply justified. (I need to clarify, the grilled cheese itself was 8$ but I chose the lunch box option which included a drink and a salad).
The drink was a home made blueberry soda. I am not going to lie. I felt cheated. The blueberry taste was so weak that if they didn’t tell me it was a blueberry soda, I wouldn’t have known. What it tasted like? Perrier blended with like 3 ( or 10 if I’m being very generous) tiny blueberries.
The salad was fine. Nothing more. I felt I was having lettuce salad with some Kraft dressing.
And thankfully the Chilli grilled cheese was delightful, or I would have mourned for my 14$. If I have to describe the specifics of the grilled cheese, I don’t think I can because I don’t remember much other than tasting good.
For someone that has a bigger appetite, they might need to order at least one more grilled cheese.
My heart for Montreal food trucks is still very confused.
