The quick (and successful) expansion to a bricks-and-mortar location shows what all the fuss is about: delightful, approachable food at Gold-winning Tacofino. The two trucks-orange for tacos, blue for burritos-feature fresh fish (like tempura-battered ling cod or lightly seared sesame-soy albacore tuna) and other spicy braised proteins brightened with salsa fresca.
Doing two things very well earned Re-Up BBQ a Silver award-judges loved the Boston butt pulled pork and sliced-to-order beef brisket piled high on squishy Portuguese buns.
Bronze to the new Vij’s Railway Express for spicy lamb kebab wrapped in naan and halibut cheeks in coconut masala curry (“an excellent way to experience one of our most celebrated restaurants-without the wait”).
Honourable Mentions to pan-Asian Roaming Dragon (first out of the gates with the now-ubiquitous short rib Korean taco) and Nu Greek Street.
