Street Meet Food Truck is located on Pender and Burrard. It’s quite close to Burrard Skytrain. The chefs are very focused in providing great food while being as sustainable as possible in everything they do. They try to use local ingredients in their food and have gluten-free options too.
I came here during a lunch break with my coworker to grab something back to the office. They were raving about the risotto balls and I just had to join in the fun.
Wild Mushroom Soup ($3) has local mushrooms, cream and truffle. It’s smells amazing once you open the lid. They claim it’s ‘the best mushroom soup ever’ and it’s definitely great soup but could have more mushroom chunks. I really wish they had larger portions. I could drink this all day. I am a huge mushroom fan.
Crispy Risotto Balls ($5) is stuffed with homemade Italian sausage, and basil aioli. It comes with 2 pieces and it’s a great size if you don’t want a huge meal. It’s also good to split among 2 people. The exterior is nice and crispy and the inside is oh so delicious.
Tuna Nicoise Salad ($12) has Ocean Wise seared local BC albacore tuna, organic mixed greens, pickled beans, tomatoes, olives, egg, kettle chips, potatoes and dijon vinaigrette. This salad has everything, so many ingredients. It tasted alright but I felt there was too much sauce on the salad. Perhaps I will have the sauce on the side. Other than that, it was good.
Overall, really great food and different from some of the other food trucks in town. They also sell Cannoli’s but they weren’t available on the day we came here. Must make a return visit! Their location varies, so best to follow they on twitter – @StreetMeetTruck.
