The Crane Express
A fusion of Southeastern Asian flavours with a mixture of Western tastes - The Crane Express creates the perfect blend of unique dishes and desserts that anyone can enjoy.
Founded in 2017, The Crane Express started with a food truck and specialized in making drinks and desserts, travelling from event to event around the Greater Toronto Area (GTA).
However, it wasn't until the beginning of the 2020 pandemic when the brand began to skyrocket. With festivities and events being cancelled, the pandemic lockdown was the perfect opportunity to evaluate their menu items and get back to the basics.
With a little bit of creativity and feedback from customers and local foodies, The Crane Express was able to take their signature dishes to a whole new level, and create new menu items that would later become fan favourites. These signature dishes are in addition to their already notorious dessert menu that includes the famous Halo-Halo.
Recognized for their unique Halo-Halo flavours, their feature on BlogTO in April 2020 was a tremendous boost to their brand. Along with their pop-up events at Square One and downtown Toronto, these events combined helped to launch stores in Vaughan and Mississauga, in addition to their Scarborough and North York locations.
Over the years, the brand and its menu grew, and now has three locations across the GTA. Through their continuously expanding menu, and their newly opened locations, The Crane Express hopes to keep the momentum going in 2021 and continue to strengthen their brand.

Signature Dishes & Drinks
The Crane Express offers four main dishes that make up their core menu items. These dishes include the juicy and flavourful Popcorn Chicken, the crispy Battered Chicken, the mouth-watering Loaded Sisig Fries, and the delicious Grilled Chicken.
Let's not forget their signature pork or vegetable spring rolls - a customer favourite that sells like nobody's business!
The Crane Express is also notorious for their signature Halo-Halo. The Halo-Halo comes in multiple flavours - with ube, coconut, mango, and Vietnamese condensed milk coffee as the popular choices. If you can't decide which flavour to get, why not get two flavours with their Halo-Halo Split?
In addition to their signature menu items, The Crane Express also offers a wide variety of other dishes and desserts. Particularly during the cold winter months, the ramen is a delicious dish that has quickly become a customer favourite. It's available with beef, pork, chicken, vegetables, or fish, and can be spicy or non-spicy.
Available in three different flavours - ube, matcha, and red velvet - The Crane Express also bakes dangerously addicting cookies that have won the hearts of many customers.
True to its Southeastern Asian roots, The Crane Express offers kamayan experiences for dine-in and take out. Take-out platters are stuffed and packaged in trays and include banana leafs for the full kamayan experience. See www.thecraneexpress.com/kamayan for more information.
