Happy Halloween! Can’t wait for the on sale candy tomorrow! I’ve seen Feastro the Rolling Bistro truck around the Coal Harbour area and finally decided to try it. Specifically, their dirty fries caught my eye. Feastro serves tacos, sandwiches and some sides.
My co-worker recommended that I try the wood-fired pizza sandwiches from Via Tevere. I didn’t even know that there was such a thing so I was quite curious! I had never investigated this food truck before since I assumed they sold pizza but turns out it’s all wood-fired sandwiches.
They offer four different types of sandwiches and they only accept cash! These “saltimbocca” sandwiches are cooked in a 900 degree woodfire oven and that gives the bread the same qualities as a pizza crust. Read more
I’ve been going through a huge brunch phase this year and Yolk’s Breakfast is essentially brunch on wheels! I just realized I’ve never blogged about their truck before.
This was the Double Smoked Bacon with two eggs, real Hollandaise, Benedict style. For the filling you have a choice of double smoked bacon, hand carved honey ham or portobello mushroom. Of course I would go with bacon all the way. Read more
Another overdue post from my visit to the Food Cart Fest. I was looking for some carbs so I decided to try Reel Mac and Cheese. I finally figured out why they’re called Reel Mac and Cheese! Because they’re dishes are sort of movie themed!
The Godzilla puts a Japanese spin on mac and cheese with roasted seaweed, Japanese mayo and teriyaki sauce. The mac and cheese was very creamy and I actually didn’t mind the Japanese mayo on top since before ordering it I thought it might be weird but hey it worked out. It was a nice savoury mac and cheese but not really too special to me or it’s not really how I like my mac and cheese.
Disco Cheetah just opened up last year and I finally managed to try them at the Food Cart Fest this month. Their truck is a bright yellow color and easy to spot! I was excited to try Korean-Mexican fusion food.
This was the menu they had on the day I went to the Food Cart Fest. When I visited again a few weeks later (not at the Food Cart Fest), I noticed they had the option of having the burrito as a bowl for $10 and if you want it as a burrito only it was $9 but at the Food Cart Fest the burrito was $10 too. Another menu difference I noticed was that the non-food cart fest menu had a Grilled Cheese Quesadilla option for $10. Read more
For some reason, I am always compelled to order things that restaurants do not specialize in and I know it but I do it anyway. In this case, I decided that instead of grilled cheese, I would order a dessert sandwich. I know that sounds like a terrible idea already but I just wanted to try it!
The plain Hamburger 2.85 truck is now redecorated and has a real name! It’s called WakWak Burger. It’s still in the same spot on Granville and Pender.
