Buster's Sea Cove Food Truck @ Nuit Blanche

Is this Art?
Toronto's once a year Nuit Blanche: a free All-Nighter event with Contemporary Art Exhibits scattered all around the city's downtown core.
It was super packed everywhere! On the subways, streetcars, streets, sidewalks, apparently over one million people attended the event.

Food Trucks on King Street West (between Bay and York Street)

I love that the food trucks were still operating (with huge crowds) into the wee hours of the morning:

Buster's Sea Cove was drumming up quite a bit of business

Fish Tacos $10
Dry battered fish, decent salsa, a spritz of lime on a bed of lettuce and soggy tortilla - that's a quick bite at Buster's Sea Cove. I thought the point of food trucks was that they were supposed to be offer cheaper, similar sized restaurant portions and have more mobility than restaurant locations. After this experience, I think the novelty has worn off (or the food trucks were totally overworked). I was starving at 2am and this just didn't cut it because it wasn't satisfying and it was so mediocre and pricey (a $10 snack? yeesh).
