Vancouver Needs Real Street Food


By David Grant - Posted on 18 March 2009

Travel to many cities in the world and you will find street food all over the place. Delicious street food. Walk in Vancouver and there is almost no street food. I can only think of 2 hot dog vendors on West 4th or West Broadway west of Granville St. The one near Future Shop just west of Burrard and the one at the corner of Graville and Broadway in front of the Chapters. You can walk a long time downtown before stumbling across any street food, and it's mostly just hot dogs or Crepes. Toronto just announced some new street food offerings downtown. I really hope it is a hit, that the vendors make back their investment and more and I hope that no ones gets sick from the food. Then, this idea just might make it to Vancouver. How awesome would it be to be able to eat some Pad Thai on the street? Or some jerk chicken? or a souvlaki skewer? This is one area of our society where I think we need less regulation.
