Just Sayin’ Caledon extends our thanks to local writer and foodie-extraordinaire Christine Cooper for her review of The Fry’s The Limit:
“What I say is that, if a fellow really likes potatoes, he must be a pretty decent sort of fellow.” – A.A. Milne
Who am I to argue with the fellow that created our beloved Winnie the Pooh? I’ll be the first to admit I am a complete and utter spud nut especially when it comes to hot, fresh French fries. Yes please, I’ll have me some of that deliciousness. So when I noticed the shiny cherry red truck located on the north side of Winner’s on Allan Drive called “The Fry’s The Limit” I went right for it.
The food truck has rocketed in to popularity and chip trucks are no exception. While you can get your maw filled with traditional chips at “The Fry’s The Limit” their ultimate speciality is Poutine. Before I go any further, let’s just make it clear, Poutine is not pronounced “Poo-teen”, it’s pronounced “Poo-tin”. I couldn’t help but notice how owner/operator and lifer Bolton gal, Brenda Coletta, put the accent in the enunciation.
While up in Montreal on a business trip Brenda noted the popularity of these single-manned food trucks churning out mounds of Poutine goodness. A long time successful corporate sales person, she found herself yearning to step outside the safety of her corporate cubicle to chase her dream of having a Poutine truck. With her family completely behind her, Brenda took a quantum leap of faith and opened up Bolton’s first official stand-alone food truck/trailer.
Truly great Poutine is all about the squeak. I’m talking about the curds. You can buy Poutine in all sorts of fast food spots about town but if you want it authentic and you want it real, you have to go to the shiny red trailer. Curds are the deal-breaker here and you’ll get it in spades at The Fry’s The Limit, where they are heaped atop fresh steaming hot fries. In chatting with Brenda I learned that all the potatoes they use are locally sourced, which only seals the loving-local deal even more.
Toppings for those golden spuds can vary, depending upon your preference. You can go with naked fries or have them topped with gravy, pulled pork, bacon or chili. That goes for the Poutine as well. How far over the topping topper you want to go is strictly up to you. Nothing says loving like building your own box of Poutine. Most recently The Fry’s The Limit has added Nate’s quarter pound, all beef, gluten free hot dog to their menu.
On a personal note, I’d just like to mention one of the things that I’ve really come to appreciate about The Fry’s The Limit and more specifically Brenda Coletta, is her commitment to community support. The shiny red trailer has been supporting Caledon Meals On Wheels and Children’s Mental Health Month. How can you not love a gal who can dish up a mean box of Poutine and show her community support at the same time?
