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…)

For weeks I have been wanting to eat at this truck. I want to go on a Monday to try its Monday’s special. I’ve even got it on my food truck list with KB and AM, but for some reason it just never worked out. Finally one Monday I decided I’ve waited long enough and just went on my own.

Oh where, you ask? It’s the popular Mom’s Grilled Cheese Truck.

If you look away from the daily specials, Mom’s Grilled Cheese is all about making your own grilled cheese sandwich. You pick your own bread, your own cheese, even some deluxe add-ons. What caught my eye was Monday’s special — Mom’s Meatloaf. The thought of a slice of meatloaf sandwiched in a grilled cheese is just so fattening yet delicious!

I waited for about 15-20 minutes for my sandwich and it was nice and hot when it got to my hands. It’s a fairly big sandwich with Hardbite chips at the bottom and a few pieces of pickle on the side. Immediately I saw the hearty slice of meatloaf in the middle along with melted mozzarella cheese oozing out.
