Compared to last month’s event where it was unbearably cold unless you were glued next to a heat lamp and most food was sold out before 8pm, this month’s Toronto Underground Market event was better.  Heat lamps were not there this time would have been useful for those unprepared for the cool evening at Evergreen Brick Works.  Regardless, the TUM events consistently sell out quickly for the opportunity to experience unique good eats. We heard the bank machine was out-of-order…

It was a cold, cold Sunday March 3rd for the sold-out foodie event at Evergreen Brick Works.  There were a few heat lamps and long, long lines for virtually every booth.  La Carnita tacos stole the show with the most outrageous line at the event.  Many vendor booths closed up and sold out by 7:30pm or so.  I managed to have an amazing pork and caramelized onion sandwich from Fidel Gastro’s which was delicious and worth the wait. Tromba Tequila…
