We Got Balls is Toronto’s newest food truck, now operating from a semi-permanent location at the north east corner of Dupont and Dufferin. It’s a ballsy move to open in the middle of December when even more-seasoned trucks have gone on hiatus.
First time food truck operator, Victor Valente took seven months to custom build his truck while concurrently taking business and culinary classes. He’s got a background in mechanics and construction and is obviously undeterred by the cold. At least the menu showcases the kind of craveable comfort food well-suited to winter weather.
As the name suggests, the menu is devoted to meatballs. The selection is set to change frequently but will typically feature a 4-5 baked (not fried) varieties like beef-ricotta-raisin balls, gluten-free turkey balls, Cajun-spiced chicken balls, vegetarian broccoli-almond balls and even stuffed risotto balls.
The opening menu offers four formats: 4-ball combos ($8.50), sliders ($3.50 each, $8.50/2 or $11/3), sandwiches ($8.50) and meatball-topped poutines ($9.50/small or $13.50/large). Orders can be customized with mix and match meatballs, and, a choice of truck-made tomato sauce, gravy, or, zesty, island or special WGB sauce.
