Winter doesn't mean you can't enjoy the delicious eats of Montreal's food trucks. Yes, it's a tad bit more difficult, and no, you won't see any food trucks driving out on the snowy streets, but they can be found.

Some trucks have found homes indoors, others at special events. Two events in particular will feature a few food trucks in one place, First Saturdays and BARBEGAZI, both held at the Olympic stadium.

Stop searching and get eating, because more winter padding never hurt anyone.

Le Cheese

Where: 5843 Sherbrooke W

When: 9pm - 3am every Thursday/Friday/Saturday

Why: Eveyone likes to get cheesey, and no truck does it better than Le Cheese. Classic fares like grilled cheese or chili-cheese dogs are perfect late night eats, as our fancier dishes like the delectable deep fried cheesecake. NDG folk, you have your drunchies spot.

Lucky's Truck

Where: 8855 Parc

When: Mondary-Friday 11am-2:30pm

Why: Get meaty at Lucky's where the food truck has set up shop for the winter. We've covered Lucky's and know its hella good, but why not try it out for yourself? Be sure to vote for Lucky's duck confit poutine, a competitor in La Poutine Week 2014.

Au Pied de Cochons

Where: Olympic Stadium, PDC Restaurant (536 Duluth E)

When: Feb. 15-16th (BARBEGAZI), varies at PDC

Why: Go sweet or salty at Au Pied de Cochon's food truck, where you can have a pork sandwich, giant donut, or the classic foie-gras and duck poutine. You can never go wrong with pork, duck and donuts. You can even find the truck posted up outside the restaurant, serving some warming drinks to anyone walking by or going inside.

Gaufrabec

Where: Olympic Stadium

When: Feb. 15-16th (BARBEGAZI)

Why: Warm up your winter with a waffle from Gaufrebec. Classic sweet varieties are always served, along with some salty creations you would never think up yourself. All served with maple syrup, of course.

La Sandwicherie Zoe's

Where: 8855 ave. du Parc

When: Mon-Fri:11:00 am-2:30 pm

Why: You can never go wrong with a sandwich, and Zoe's make some truly epic and meaty varities. Zoe's specializes in Greek and Mediterranean sandwiches, but also known to switch it up to make unique flavour combinations.

Das Food Truck

Where: Concordia University

When: Mon-Fri @ Noon

Why: The re-invented Bavarian classics served by Das Food Truck will have you snacking on that schnitzel (and more) with a smile. Concordia students get special treatment after this weekend, as DFT will be posting up every weekday to fill empty stomachs. Try out the deep fried oreos, because, well, it's a friggin deep fried oreo.

Boîte à Fromages

Where: Olympic Stadium

When: Feb. 15-16th (BARBEGAZI)

Why: Raclette is what Boîte à Fromages is famous for, and for good reason. The dish of cheese melted on potatoes is given the (even more) gourmet treatment with tons of different additions, ranging from sweet to savoury, to fit your unique flavour. Be sure to get some raclette at the Olympic Stadium when you can.

Felix & Norton

Where: Varies

When: Whenever a cookie is needed in a person's hand

Why: Baked goods are good any time of year, so thank goodness Felix & Norton's mobile bakery never truly stops rolling out in the winter. You may have missed free cookie day, but you can still find F&N at other openings, private events, or at the canoe races along the Lachine on Feb. 22nd. Follow F&N's Twitter for all the updates.

Saigon, je me souviens

Where: Olympic Stadium

When: Feb. 15-16th (BARBEGAZI)

Why: Enjoy some quality Vietnamese eats at Saigon, where they do more than just banh mi (sandwiches). Grilled lemongrass chicken, vermicelli bowls, spring rolls, and more will be ready for you to enjoy at the Olympic Stadium.

ROUX Food Truck

Where: Valentine's Day Pop-Up/ Entrée des Artistes (3692 Saint-Denis)

When: Febuary 14th

Why: ROUX will be serving up its delicious fries and sandwiches to all the singles ready to mingle on V-Day. In collaboration with Elite Speed Dating, a special event will be held where you can meet cool people, dance to DJ, enjoy an open bar, and eat some good food. Find more info here.

March's First Saturday & Nuit Blanche Celebration

Where: Olympic Stadium

When: March 1st

Why: March's first Saturday will be a special event, one all food lovers will wanna check out. During the day will be the usual First Saturday affair, with 3-4 trucks out serving food, but come nightfall, the real magic starts. 10-12 trucks will be open and doling out delcious dishes well into the evening. Au Pied de Cachons, Zoe's, Lucky's, and Gaufrebec have been confirmed, with many more to come. Nuit Blanche can't come quick enough. That sounded gross, but you know what I mean.
