Vancouver has an awesome street food scene. I’m lucky to work downtown in its epicentre and often grab lunch from the nearby carts. I also live next door to the newly located Food Cart Festival, which will be held every Sunday during the summer between the Olympic Village and the Cambie Bridge.
I went today to check out their new location and the food. I’m happy to report that almost every truck had vegetarian options and five had vegan options. The carts will likely change on a weekly basis, but here were the vegan options today.
There’s still a few logistical problems they need to work out. I expected lineups for the food carts, not to get in. After the first 100 people trickled in, I think they figured out how to get people in a quicker. They also need a few bike racks. Their location is great for picking up seawall traffic, but half of that traffic is on wheels.
Food trucks have been banned in Montreal for 66 years and have made debut. Wonderful way to get people out of the dark, dank food courts and out into the parks.
Great news. I’m sure Montreal will develop a thriving street food scene in the next few years.
