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!

The only experience I had with the Reef was when we ordered catering for the office, which means the food had probably sat out for close to an hour before it got to my tummy. You can imagine how (not) fresh the food tasted, and that’s why I never wrote about the restaurant. Until now.

My Jerk Chicken Roti was wrapped in tinfoil, sitting in a paper container. If it were a combo (which I didn’t get), there would be a generous serving of plantain chips on the side. For some reason, I pictured a burrito-shaped wrap, but it was more like a square wrap. I attempted to unwrap the foil to show you the roti, but it was so soft and droopy that I thought it would slip right out of my hands! I decided to keep it intact so I wouldn’t wear most of it.

And yes, it was droopy. As I slowly opened up my wrap, the sauce already leaked out of the wrap and got onto the foil, made it even harder to hold. After struggling with the unwrapping process, I finally dug in for my first bite. (more…)
