Street Food City Returns to Vancouver With More Flavour Than Ever Before

It’s that time of year again when Dine Out Vancouver takes over the city’s restaurants and Street Food City returns to the Vancouver Art Gallery. Now in its fourth year, Street Food City has expanded to become a week-long event with more than 25 participating food trucks, 15 of which are on site every day from 11:00 a.m. -3:00 p.m. on Monday to Thursday, and 11:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. on Friday and the Weekend.

Food Trucks and Film Fests- Where to Get Street Food During TIFF 2014

The Toronto International Film Festival is finally here, and that means waiting outside Yorkville hotels for prospective celebrity sightings, lining up for sold out tickets, and calling in sick for late-night work-week movie premiers. Meanwhile, behind the scenes, Toronto’s food industry has been working overtime to ensure everything is in tip-top shape for the celebrity-studded rush, and no longer is it just about the scene-y Yorkville addresses. Actually, my hope this year is that it’s not necessarily about addresses at all, as Toronto’s food truck scene has undergone a huge boom this year, and it’s time international starlets get a taste!

The PNE Is Making Fair Food Fabulous

It’s that time of year again when we all flock to the Pacific National Exhibition. This year the PNE has packed in some amazing exhibits like the Game Of Thrones display, as well as some cool rides. But let’s face it, it’s really all about the food. The Fair has 71 food vendors this year with 20% new food options for us to enjoy, and those options are just as diverse as the food scene here in Vancouver. I was given a private tasting tour of some of this year’s hottest treats at the Fair. It’s a hard job, but I’m more than willing to donate my extra belt notches to share these yummy eats with you all.

A Toronto Foodie’s Highlights of Houston Food Park

To kick off the transition to Summer, I made a trip from Toronto to Houston for a weekend eating adventure and a hunt for great street food. Throughout the weekend, I saw a number of lone trucks parked in public parking lots, on streets and at the market, most of which sold authentic Mexican cuisine, but I was eager to check out one of Houston’s food truck parks near by my hotel.

Jon Favreau Gets It Right With Chef

First of all I should let you know that I am a bit biased here.

Not only do I love the subject of Jon Favreau’s latest movie Chef but I also adore the cast and every location that it is set in. Having spent the past four years as the host of Eat St. on Food Network Canada I have had the incredible pleasure of travelling to LA, Miami, Austin and New Orleans (to name a few) and meeting some of the top food truck chefs in North America. I have been at the front lines chronicling the food truck revolution and have witnessed it going from an urban trend to a red hot movement that has taken over the streets of virtually every city in North America. Food trucks are everywhere and Favreau totally captures every relevant aspect of why.
