Some trucks around Southern Ontario, like El Gastro, often feature a fish option but Buster’s Sea Cove is the first with an all-seafood menu. That’s an obvious and appropriate distinction for a truck owned and operated by the same people who run the Buster’s Sea Cove booth at St. Lawrence Market.
- Buster’s Sea Cove
- Hometown: Toronto
Most-Talked-About, Signature Dish: No question that it’s their lobster roll.
TwelveThirteen dollars (they bumped the price up a dollar in their first month of operation) seems a lot for lunch off of a food truck but this sandwich features a truly impressive serving of large chunks of Nova Scotia lobster that are only lightly-dressed in a Maine-style dressing and then wedged into a top-slice bun. The order also includes a side of potato chips and a remarkably good pickle so go hungry or find someone to split it with.
Try If You Get the Chance: The two tacos–white-flesh basa fish and shrimp–offer fresh vegetable crunch and a very crisp batter on the seafood.
- Lunch Location and Hours: Queen and Jarvis from 11 AM to 3 PM.
- Time to Place Order: 3 minutes
- Time to Get Food After Placing Order: 4 minutes
- Established: April 2012
- The Added Touches: It seems like a small thing but that shelf out front is a convenient spot for condiments (not to mention platform for shooting photos) and I’d love to see more Toronto trucks add them to their designs. A large plurality of the trucks we ate from in San Francisco had them.
- Social Media:@bustersseacove (note the two “s”s if you’re typing it out) and Facebook.
