Calle Mexico on the road in Leduc

Like food trucks? You may like Calle Mexico...a lot

TASTE OF MEXICO - Juan and Angelica’s Calle Mexico food truck is already popular with Leduc residents.

The popular modern-day food truck culture has now grown in the City of Leduc. A new “ethnic” food truck has officially cut the ribbon with the help and gracious attention of chamber officials and representatives of Leduc city council.

Juan, his wife Angelica and Mamma Maria are the principal operators of Calle Mexico, a colorful food truck that is choosing different spots each day in the City of Leduc to sell its authentic, delicious Mexican fare. After having lived in the U.S. for 14 years, Juan shared that “Canadians are so friendly and polite. Moving here was the best decision we ever made.”  Calle Mexico’s popularity is growing with each passing day… bravo, amigos.

At the recent Federation of Canadian Municipalities conference (FCM), Edmonton mayor Don Iveson hosted an outdoor reception in Churchill Square: the iconic Danny Hooper and his country-western band performed to an appreciative audience of several hundred guests. The menu of the evening was posted on the side of eight food trucks offering a variety of ethnic and Canadian dishes. It was fun, it was memorable and Edmonton was a proud host. The food trucks were a hit. Enough said.
