Food Truck: Eat Chicken Wraps

You see something enough times and your mind starts getting its own ideas. You don’t want your mind to take over. You want your brain to stay firmly planted in the present, in reality; you hate it when it wanders off into a mind of its own and becomes that mind. You want it to plainly process the information your eyes pass on and for … Continue reading Food Truck: Eat Chicken Wraps

Food Trucks: Mogu Japanese Street Eats

I was at the Pacific Centre during lunchtime today and instead of having my usual spicy beef basil fried rice from the Thai food court stall, I decided to venture outside the confines of the mall and sample the offerings of the Mogu food truck. Like most space-limited food trucks, Mogu has a rather tight and focused menu. It offers a total of three sandwiches … Continue reading Food Trucks: Mogu Japanese Street Eats

Food Trucks: Vij’s Railway Express

I haven’t been keeping up with my plan of getting more intimate with local food trucks – which is rather regrettable considering that they are fast becoming a major part of the local food scene.

Food Trucks: Guanaco (my first Salvadorian experience)

The thought of trying Salvadorian food wouldn’t even have crossed my mind if I had not been offered a sample of an entire pupusa while walking by the Guanaco food truck the other day. I was really grateful for full-sized sample, but I was really too full to purchase another … Continue reading Food Trucks: Guanaco (my first Salvadorian experience)

Food Trucks: Tacofino (the right kind of fusion)

Tacofino – With such a thriving local food truck (cart) scene, I kinda feel bad for not trying more of them out. I think I’ve only ever tried food from one local food truck (not taking into account the ubiquitous Japadog) -Ursu – and I don’t even think it is in operation anymore. In an effort to delve deeper into the local food scene, I’m going … Continue reading Food Trucks: Tacofino (the right kind of fusion)
