Joh vs. Food – The CNE Chronicles 2013

It’s that time of year again! The CNE is in full swing. Unofficially symbolizing the end of summer, this event gives me prime time for eating. A two day event for me, the food extravaganza began with food truck frenzy.

  1. Everything looks delicious! I spent so much time in the Food Building at CNE and completely missed out on the food trucks. I really want to try those Nutella Bombs from The Food Guys! 😀

    • The food trucks come out one weekend during the run of the CNE. This is the 2nd year of having them there. I think it’s a great addition to CNE festivities.
      Definitely try the Nutella bombs if you see that truck somewhere. Worth it!
      Thanks for reading! =)
