There are more than 300 food trucks operating in Metro Vancouver and Victoria, making it the most food truck-friendly city in Canada. With the low start-up costs, mobility and dynamic nature of the industry its easy to see why Vancouver's food truck scene is so hot and entrepreneurs are drawn to opening up their mobile business here. We wanted to shine some light on a few new up-and-comers. Below is our list of 5 new hot Vancouver food trucks to check out!
One of Vancouver’s newest trucks on the road is Sticky Khoa. Having just opened in early June this year they’re newbies on the scene but don’t let that dissuade you. They’re serving up delicious traditional Laotian food including cuts of caramelized pork belly, traditional beef noodle soup, and even pork stuffed tapioca dumplings. Check them out!
Chickpea food truck is known for delicious plant-based comfort food with a Mediterranean twist. The owner's goal was to connect with the world through people’s stomachs, and Chickpea delivers on that. Their food is quickly changing up the plant-based scene in Vancouver. We love that!
A lot can be said by just their slogan ’ WE MAKE HEALTHY SH*T ‘ Aloha Bowls is all about healthy breakfast and lunch offerings paired with a pretty laid-back attitude that makes you feel like you’ve just washed up on the North Shore of Oahu. Known for their acai bowls with house-made granola and bee pollen, smoothies that are guaranteed to make you smoother, kombucha and coffee, Aloha Bowls is a truck to scope out.
Super new on the scene, Honey Ballz is here to give you a taste of traditional Greek desserts with their beautiful bundles of battered joy, officially referred to as Loukoumades. You can top these deep-fried balls off with warm honey and a choice of toppings such as sesame seeds, chocolate sauce and even ice cream if you're crazy like that.
Vancouver’s first Indigenous food truck has been getting quite a bit of attention recently. Mr. Bannock serves affordable Indigenous food with a healthy side of pride and joy in the cuisine. They use ingredients from Squamish Nation such as juniper berries, smoked wild salmon and meats, and traditional methods such as clay baking and stone baking. Definitely a truck worth celebrating!
