Captured: New Hogtown Smoke food truck draws huge lunchtime lineups

By some magical twist of fate, the two parking lots directly to the east and the north of the Toronto Life offices have become ground-zero for the city’s still-nascent food truck scene. Today, there were a record four trucks in the lot at Queen and Jarvis: Blue Donkey Streatery, Gourmet Bitches, Buster’s Sea Cove and the new barbecue truck Hogtown Smoke, which, as you can see, siphoned off the lines from the rest, thanks in no small part to the intoxicating smell of smoke emanating down the block.
