Street Food Vancouver was thrilled to show off the best of our local food trucks during this year’s Dine Out Vancouver. I went yesterday on the last day and there was definitely something to satisfy everyone’s palate. Actually it was difficult to make a choice.
Nine of the city’s top food carts congregated at the Vancouver Art Gallery this past weekend allowing diners to sample a wide range of freshly prepared, internationally influenced flavors in one convenient location while receiving special discounts and freebies. The best part? After making their selections, diners were able to cozy up despite the rain in an outdoor food court complete with heaters, tents, tables and chairs.
“Vancouver’s street foods were once limited to hot dogs and roasted chestnuts – but for the last few years, our food cart vendors have been dishing out some of the city’s most creative, fresh and delicious cuisine ,” said Lucas Pavan, festival coordinator. “Street Food City showcases not only the diversity of our local food culture, but also the evolution of Dine Out from a restaurant-focused promotion to an all-encompassing dining festival.”
I really enjoyed my “ze pig” french baguette sandwich from “Ze Bite” french cuisine food truck while imagining eating it walking along Ze Seine. I recommend sampling the local truck stops around town.
