Ready to serve. Owner Tony Vastis and his Blue Donkey Streatery food truck team can often be found serving up Greek favourites in Celebration Square.

Two Mississauga food trucks are enjoying the spotlight at the CNE’s food truck rally this weekend.

Mike’s Doghouse and Blue Donkey Streatery are among 17 trucks parked just inside the Princes’ Gates. The event continues until 10 p.m. tonight.

Mike Sutton will be bringing his Mike’s Doghouse trailer — which serves gourmet hot dogs with toppings like pulled pork, peameal bacon, chili and fries — from its usual base at the University of Toronto’s Mississauga campus.

“I’ve been going to the Ex since I was 4 years old,” said Sutton. “I’m humbled and honoured because they invited us to this event.”

Erin Mills resident Tony Vastis and his Blue Donkey Streatery crew will be serving up greek favorites like souvlaki, gyros, honey and pita sticks. Blue Donkey is a regular sight in to city centre, and was the first gourmet food truck licensed by the City to serve Celebration Square. Vastis comes from a food business family: his father operated a hotdog cart at the Heartland Canadian Tire for 24 years while his brother owns two Greek restaurants in Mississauga.

Other trucks at the CNE event hail from Toronto, Ancaster, Maple, Fort Erie, Uxbridge and Washago.
