Food Cart Fest has returned to the Olympic Village! Every Sunday starting June 22, 20+ food trucks gather together to serve you some awesome eats on wheels. On the opening day on June 22, we went to the VIP preview event and got to sample the trucks before the event was open to the public.

There was a lot to sample. Here is a round up of what we tried:

Chickpea Salad at Vij’s Railway Express – Refreshing and like the additional crispy texture from the popped rice

As part of Dine Out Vancouver 2014, Street Food City is returning for its 3rd year. Between January 22 and January 26, 23 food trucks will be gathered around the north side of Vancouver Art Gallery and serve some fantastic food truck goodness at this festival. This is probably the best and worst time to try out any food trucks: It’s the best because there are so many of them together at once; it’s the worst because it’s also attracting the most amount of people which means you will be faced with long line-ups at every truck.

Regardless, this is an event that I look forward to every year. Here are some of our favourites that will be participating this year:

And here is my wishlist for this year:

  • Feastro: Heard good things about its tacos
  • Le Tigre: Always want to try Clement Chan’s food. Another Asian food truck that I think I will like.
  • Yolks: Breakfast food truck? Yes, please!
  • Mogu: Heard great things about its chicken karaage

Hopefully I can make it to the Street Food City this year (my body is in the process of fixing itself). Otherwise, I’m looking to you to let me know how it goes!

If you haven’t heard already, 15 additional food trucks will start appearing on a Vancouver street this month. According to Vancity Buzz, that means there will be a total of 114 food trucks in Vancouver by the time they’re all fully operational. This is exciting news! Mr. and I were blown away by the pods of food trucks we saw in Portland and we’re glad to see it happen in Vancouver.

New and old food trucks will slowly kick off their season, if they haven’t already. I have yet to try some new ones this year, but here is the food truck series that I did last summer. This may help you pick out a few good ones to hold you over while waiting for the new ones to pop up. (more…)

Food Truck Fridays continued with KB and AM. For his second pick, AM discovered Mangal Kiss at the corner of Howe and West Georgia, by the curb of the Vancouver Art Gallery plaza. We went through some diner reviews beforehand and realized that the waiting time could be an issue; nonetheless, we decided to give it a try.

Turns out the wait is a norm. The kebabs are being grilled fresh, and they only cook a few at a time. That would explain the wait line by the truck. We got there just around noon and we were told to wait about 20 minutes for our food.

With our grumbling tummies, we got our first kebab 18 minutes later, with the third one getting to our hands exactly 20 minutes later.  AM ordered the featured kebab, which is the Peace River Lamb Kebab wrapped in thin pita.

Wanting the same thing, but was also intrigued by the phrase “tradition Iranian flat bread” on the regular menu, I kindly asked the staff if I can order my Peace River Lamb Kebab on Taftoon. And thankfully, they said yes! (more…)
