MOBILE DELI STOPS MOVING TO SET UP SHOP ON QUEEN EAST

Six months later than planned, Zane Caplansky’s food truck has finally found a permanent home in the parking lot across the street from the old CityTV building at 99 Queen East and Dalhousie.

The truck – nicknamed Thundering Thelma – set up shop for the first time Monday and is open weekdays from 11 am to 3 pm. Cash only and, no, they don’t give receipts.

The limited card includes tangy shredded brisket sliders (two for $7), smoked meat poutine ($6) and grilled cheese sandwiches ($4). Don’t miss the kosher fried-to-order mini maple beef-bacon donuts ($5 for six/$12 dozen).

His signature smoked meat sandwiches ($7) seem more thickly sliced than at his College Street deli (caplansky.com) and randomly fatty, something that might frighten first-timers.

Packets of Wing’s food-court mustard add little complement. (C’mon, Zane, break out the good stuff!)

Note that she’s got a catering gig Thursday but will be back on Friday and all next week.
