The Onion Factory, finger food meant for sharing

Mexicano: garnished with hot beef, chili, and sour cream, topped with diced tomatoes and green onion.

Chef Derek Collins is bringing his Onion Factory Food Trailer to Brandon’s Food Truck Warz this September 13-14-15. The truck specializes in serving Blooming Onions, a dish consisting of one large onion which is cut to resemble a flower, battered, and deep-fried. They are cooked to perfection and the portions are very generous. The individual pieces are like onion rings, crispy outside and tangy and sweet inside. Derek offers a variety of different options including the All Beef Onion which is garnished with sirloin steak chunks and served with a horseradish aioli. A new menu item this year is The Mighty Zeus consisting of a Blooming Onion garnished with diced cucumber, tomatoes, green peppers, onions, black olives and tossed in a signature Greek dressing. The onion is then topped with feta cheese and tzatziki sauce.

The Onion Factory is just one of twenty-six food trucks from around the province who will be serving up some delicious curbside eats at this year’s event. It all gets underway Friday, September 13 at 5pm. The official Facebook event page can be found here.
