Seattle Street Food Festival: Nosh the Truck

On a warm sunny weekend, we drove to Seattle to take in the Street Food Festival along North 9th Avenue. After wandering the length of the food festival, we settled on Nosh the Truck. The drawing point for us was the fish & chips that we saw others carrying around the festival. There was a…

Street food review: Seattle Street Food Fest

For Food-Day Trip to Seattle, we decided to check out the Street Food Festival, consisting of some 40+ food trucks, and another 25+ tents lined up along Ninth Avenue near Denny Park. I spotted Delfino’s Chicago Pizza truck.  I’ve not sampled a “real” deep dish pizza.  I vaguely recall going to a greek restaurant in Vancouver during…

Street Food review: C’est Si Bon food truck

I currently work in industrial/tech park in the middle of nowhere (at least it feels like the middle of nowhere).  Fortunately the food trucks occasionally visit the area. On this day, I checked out C’est si bon Food truck, which features french cuisine such as beouf bourguignon, croissants, and variety of pastries like tarts and mille feuilles….

Street food review: Wakwak Burger

This food cart started as a nameless truck trailer serving really inexpensive burgers in the downtown area. For the first half-year or so, it was only known as 2.85 Burger, because that was basically their menu. Since then, the trailer has earned some graphics and a name. Now known as Wakwak Burger, their prices have…

Street Food review: Community Pizzeria

During the Khatsulano music festival, I spotted the Community Pizzeria truck and decided to give it a try (so hard to resist good pizza).   As expected of a food truck, the menu is narrow. They serve a neapolitan style pizza.  Perhaps worth noting that they don’t claim to be certified “Vera Neapolitana”.   If they…

Street Food review: Reel Mac and Cheese Food Truck

It was a dry and (comparatively) warm November afternoon, and we decided to take advantage of the nice weather and check some food trucks downtown.  We headed for the Hamilton Street cluster around Georgia and Hamilton (between the main Post Office and the Queen Elizabeth Theatre). On this day, there was the Aussie Pie Guy…

Street food review: Waiola Shave Ice

With Hawaii’s year round warm weather, staying cool is part of daily life.  The local specialty is “shave ice”.  This is an evolved version of our community fair “shaved ice”.   “Shaved ice” tends to be course ground ice in a paper cup, drizzled with flavored syrup.  Hawaii “shave ice” is a very fine ice…

Street food review: Hula Dog

Hula Dog is a local  of hot dog chain that serves hot dogs with a distinct Hawaiian flavors. They start by slipping a (unsplit) roll over a searing hot steel tube, toasting the bun from the inside out. Once toasted, they remove the roll, and partially fill the tube with two flavored sauces, then  they insert a…

Street food review: Eat Chicken Wraps

While wandering around downtown on the weekend, I spotted the Eat Chicken Wraps food truck, near Robson Plaza. I wanted something light that I could munch on the go, so I gave it try. I ordered the Hoisin Chicken Roll.  It took about ten minutes to prepare the order, so this is not for the…

Street food review: a bunch of them

This represents about 3 different outings, each time sampling a different food truck. First up was Le Tigre, and this was at the Kitsilano Farmer’s Market.  We ordered the Kickass Rice with Pork Belly. This is a rice cooked in butter, dashi and sake, topped with a poached egg, and braised pork belly, garnished with chilies,…

Streetfood review: Pajo’s at Steveston Wharf

We decided we needed a fried food fix on this day, and opted for Pajo’s at the Steveston Wharf.  Fish & chips on a pier over the water…. it’s just the way it should be. We started with a cup of clam chowder.   This is a think cream based chowder, stocked with (modest amounts…
