There’s something irresistable about food truck food in paradise. Hawaii. Baja. Tofino. The boho shores of Belize or Costa Rica. Fish tacos and juicy burgers served in a basket with fries, a warm breeze sifting through the leaves, the lap of waves sounding in the distance… it’s vacation perfection. Now it’s doable in Muskoka.
“There’s something irresistable about food truck food in paradise… “
As a gourmet food truck, Sully’s Muskoka first opened its van doors in May 2017 and became an instant hit. Now Sully’s has taken its food to an all-season audience. In Winter 2020 Sully’s launched a bricks ‘n mortar restaurant in Muskoka.
On its “fast food” menu, a shifting mix of gourmand items such as Caprese Panini, Watermelon Feta Salad, Fish Tacos, and the famed Sully Burger — a boisterous, house-ground, savour-worthy selection that gets a lot of attention on social media.
On MuskokaStyle’s premier visit we ordered up two gigantic servings of finger-licking food: Fish and Chips, and Fish Tacos. The latter is the perfect combo of tempura haddock topped with fresh chipotle cabbage salad, served on an ultra soft tortilla with rice and refried beans piled high on the side. As we said: perfection.
Warning: This is not your hot-dog-and-sausage-corner-of-Yonge&Bloor kind of food truck food. Sully’s fare is artful and unique, and it comes with a hefty price tag. Mains run about $14; salads about $8. But portions are large (very large—sharable, even) and the service is friendly.
Sully’s Muskoka Gormand is situated in a quiet spot behind Bracebridge’s downtown core. Address: 13C Taylor Road, close to the old railway station. www.SullysMuskoka.com
