The Lonely Chip Wagon

Are chip wagons & trucks a Canadian phenomenon? I don’t recall seeing them anywhere else in my travels around the globe, although I did see a cupcake and  goats head soup trailer once. I notice in the summer the various chip trucks around Muskoka can be lined up with people salivating for fries or the famous artery clogging Poutine. This particular cuisine trailer is located on Hwy #118 as you leave Port Carling heading towards Bracebridge. Gravy on your fries?

    i have seen this chip truck countless times but never stopped in, I don’t think i have ever seen it open either.

    Makes sense that there would be chip trucks in Ireland. Perhaps that’s how we got them.
    James, I don’t think this chip wagon has ever operated there. Someone messaged me saying the town would not approve them operating at this site.
    The lady that operates it used to be at the back of the Esso station in Port Carling and there would be big lineups.

  4. Don’t think we have them in Sweden. But we do have a lot of places that sell unhealthy food.

    Come on down to Sarnia / Point Edward – there are at least 3 under the Blue Water Bridges @ the mouth of the St. Clair River.
    Started 60 + years ago – before air conditioning – a cool breeze and some fries – nothing like it on a warm summer day / evening.
