Just a few steps away from Ai Weiwei’s piece was another crowd-pleaser, but this one had only four wheels – The Per Se Mobile food truck! Parked behind old city hall on Albert St., Per Se Mobile was on hand at Nuit Blanche to ensure Toronto’s art lovers had the food to fuel their late-night fun.
Chef Camilo Olarte and his staff were the artists of their own flavourful and hunger-satisfying exhibition, this one consisting of short rib sandwiches, pork sausages, jerk chicken, shrimp tacos, poutine, and raw sugarcane lemonade. The crowds began amassing in front of the Per Se food truck around 8 p.m., and the lineups lasted well into the night. Most of the folks who stopped by found a place nearby to sit and enjoy their meal, while a few others who were in a rush to see all that Nuit Blanche had to offer grabbed a sandwich and ate on the move.
Per Se Catering & Events was proud to be a part of one of Toronto’s landmark cultural events, and we were happy to see so many people take a break from the weird and wonderful artwork to drop by our truck. We’d like to think our culinary artistry didn’t need quite as much interpretation as some of the installations around the city!
