With summer in full swing, many Vancouverites are enjoying street food. If you’re on the search for a great food cart, we have four suggestions to share.
Four Vancouver Food Cart Favourites
Johnny’s Pops, a cherry-red bike-powered cooler cart, sells a selection of popsicles … ranging in flavours from a virgin blackberry mojito to avocado lime. My son polished off his own blackberry mojito popsicle, ate most of my strawberry balsamic basil one and wailed a bit when he found out my husband’s creamy strawberry lemonade was all finished.”
Mom’s Grilled Cheese
Sometimes you just need some comfort food, and this food cart is ready to provide. Mom’s Grilled Cheese has a devoted following, often appearing on lists of the best Vancouver street food. You can find them at the corner of Howe Street and Robson Street from 11:30am to 3:00pm, Monday to Friday. They’ve also recently added Friday and Saturday nights at the same location.

Pig on the Street
If you’re achin’ for bacon, Pig on the Street is the answer. Here’s what our contributor Lisa Corriveau had to say about them: “Krissy and Mark make all their sauces and bread from scratch using local ingredients. They source their hormone and additive-free meat from a local producer who treats their pigs humanely.” It’s a food cart you can feel good about visiting.

The Tacofino Commissary is one of our favourite places to eat in East Vancouver. Get back to Tacofino’s street food roots, though, by visiting the White Lightning truck at Dunsmuir and Burrard, open between 11:30am and 3:00pm Monday through Friday. There are burritos, gringas and banana churros, but we really have a soft spot for the fish tacos.
