Happy Food Truck Tuesday! Vancouver’s food cart and truck scene has grown by leaps and bounds in recent years. Every Tuesday, we’ll take you on a virtual tour to one of Vancouver’s most popular mobile eateries. Get to know the heroes behind the food that battle the weather, lunch line ups. and your hunger.
Street Meet Truck
Delicious Mediterranean Food
In their own words: We are really approachable and friendly when we are out on the streets and we love chatting with everyone. We both are fine dining trained Chefs and try to bring a little of those techniques to our menu while still keeping it easy to understand. We also try to use local products and be as sustainable as possible.
Below are 5 quick questions that we asked Alessandro & Mike
What “hole” do you fill in Vancouver’s food scene?
We felt that there was a lack of European style food in the street food scene of Vancouver. As well as we feel that we bring a restaurant style experience and food to the streets, while being accessible and easy to eat.
What’s the most popular combination that people order at your food cart?
We like to offer the whole meal at one price and make it easier for our guests. A lot of people combine the Crispy Risotto Balls and the Pork Belly Bites.
If you could change 1 by-law to help your business, what would you change?
We would like to be able to sell beer and wine, because we think it would compliment our food really well.
Where do you like to unwind after a long day (in Vancouver)?
We both like to relax and have a beer at the Local patio, or go for a swim (weather permitting), or go to sleep, because there definitely is not to much of that as a business owner.
What would be your last meal before a zombie apocalypse?
The Street Meet Lamb Burger…obviously. Or a fresh loaf of bread with some really stinky cheese, olive oil and good salt.
