Vancouver is one of the prettiest cities in the world with a ton of great stuff to offer and now they have one more: Food Trucks!! Vancouver has joined the elite foodie cities in the world with great, gourmet food available at reasonable prices on the street. (I love street food and make it a regular practice in my travels to try street food wherever I go) Normally my cooking blog is reserved for my own kitchen experimentation but I just couldn't let the opportunity pass to plug what I think is the greatest food truck in the city (perhaps I am biased because they originated on the Sunshine Coast where I am from... I ate there, in Davis Bay, last summer and remember telling them to get on one of those foodie shows... and they did!!! Eat Street from Food Network was there after I left!!). Anyway, it's a great big purple truck called Feastro and they do prepare a feast for every palate. They have fresh locally caught seafood, locally grown greens (coming from Henry Rd. Farm in Gibsons), delicious daily specials, incredible flavours and it doesn't hurt that the dude taking orders is adorable and good with the customers.
Anyway, if you ever find yourself in Vancouver with a hungry belly... head down to West Cordova and Thurlow (right across from the Olympic torch and the convention centre) and give Feastro a try... you won't be sorry!!!
