Get ready for a mouth-watering ride as “Eat St.” season three serves up delicious delights from 60 new street food vendors in 20 different cities including, for the first time on the series, vendors from Toronto and Calgary.
This season features crazy new items like the Boss Hog, a habanero jelly and pork shoulder doughnut in Austin, Texas, deep fried cupcakes and cake-filled milkshakes in Miami, Florida, and a whopping three patty Whole Truck burger with optional cheese curds in Calgary.
This season “Eat St.” also gets the dish on street cuisine in London with a one-hour UK special. Plus, the improved Eat St. App – available on iTunes – continues to please food lovers with more than 300,000 downloads to date.
Produced by Vancouver-based Paperny Entertainment and directed by Peter Waal, “Eat St.” season three premieres Wed., May 9 with a double helping of episodes at 10pm ET/PT and 10:30pm ET/PT on Food Network Canada.
Each episode of “Eat St.” takes viewers behind the counter and into the heart of street food by showcasing four different street food vendors. This season explores every type of street cuisine imaginable – from Portland’s meat-tastic Pork Hammer sandwich stuffed with ham, bacon and sausage, to the Pnut Butter Bar in Los Angeles, which dishes up an Elvis-inspired concoction of bacon, bananas and peanut butter, to deep fried Cajun spice battered chicken and honey-butter doughnuts in Austin, Texas. Cities featured this year include Vancouver, Miami, Cleveland, Nashville, Seattle, and Washington DC, to name a few. Canadian comedian James Cunningham returns to host “Eat St.” season three.
Hungry viewers can take the street food experience in their pocket with the updated Eat St. App, which uses GPS to locate nearby food trucks. The redesigned App allows users to build a personal profile, link with their Facebook and Twitter accounts, gain points by taking photos, add tips and rate dishes, as well as search for and review vendors. The new version of the App is more community-driven, as users input new cart details and correct existing information, increasing the App’s accuracy. Vendors can also create a profile for their food cart, post recipes and menus, offer special deals and discounts, and update their location regularly. The iPhone App has been downloaded over 300,000 times and is available on iTunes. It can also be accessed at www.EatStApp.com. The Eat St. App is a collaboration between Paperny Entertainment and Invoke Media. ·
Episode 1: Deli-icious Delights – Wed., May 9 at 10pm ET/PT
Season three’s first stop is Caplansky’s, a Jewish deli truck out of Toronto, Ontario, serving up classics with a twist such as the WZE Sandwich, featuring grilled kosher-style salami, schmaltz-laced chopped liver, red onions and Russian honey mustard all in a mini challah bun. Next, things cool down at the Lake Street Creamery in Los Angeles, California, where they dish out deliciously unique ice cream flavours including Homemade Donut and Earl Grey Tea. Next “Eat St.” rocks up in Nashville, Tennessee, for some original Mexican gourmet at the Yayo’s OMG truck. Topping off this episode is Gourdough’s truck in Austin, Texas, where they take doughnuts to a whole new level with offerings such as the Porkey’s, a doughnut injected with Jalapeño jelly and topped with cream cheese and Canadian bacon.
Episode 2: Global Gastronomy – Wed., May 9 at 10:30pm ET/PT
First up is Cleveland, Ohio to meet the Dim and Den Sum truck for some tasty Asian-American comfort food. Next is Alley Burger in Calgary, Alberta, where “Top Chef Canada” competitor Connie DeSousa’s truck serves up some not-so-secret alley delights that include the three patty wonder known as the Whole Truck Burger. After that, “Eat St.” treks across the Atlantic to visit London, England, for a spicy Indian mouthful at a cart called Everybody LoveLove Jhal Muri Express. And finally, it is over to Tampa Bay, Florida, to the Wicked ‘Wiches truck for the greatest – and most heart-stopping – things on sliced bread.
