Arrival Agency’s popular summer food event YVR Food Fest is back this weekend August 5 to 7th! Formerly known as Food Cart Fest has re-coined itself to include not just food trucks but also local restaurants. This year includes local and international culinary talent collaborating on long table dinners, food talks, private dinners, and cocktail parties.
What We Ate At the YVR Food Fest Vancouver
This new ice cream truck offers non-dairy ice cream, handcrafted with whole food ingredients with bold flavors. Non-dairy base uses a blend of coconut milk, housemade cashew milk, organic agave nectar.
Mini Ice Cream Sammies: Maple waffle cookies, lemon coconut ice cream and orange chocolate sauce.
Sweet Chile Chicken with medium heat and served with organic greens, quinoa and cabbage slaw. This Korean fusion food truck offers Rice Bowls and Burrito and Tacos. Choose from BBQ Pork, Sweet Chile Chicken, Vegan Soy Tofu and Bulgogi Beef Meatballs.
We’ve been enjoying Johnny’s Pops since they first launched in 2013. They’ve upgraded from their Bicycle Cart to a food truck now. Their popsicles are made with locally sourced fruits! Raspberry Basil and Mango, Yogurt and Strawberry layers is my favorite!
Featured here is The Flying Pig’s Happy Hour pork sliders with coleslaw.
Literally one of the best looking trucks on the lot. Kafka’s Citroen HY Van was originally designed to transport horses, now it’s used for serving tasty beverages.
Serving chicken, beef or tofu rice bowls, yakisobas. Grilled on the spot and served with a side of cabbage. Heavy on the salt but tasty with beer.
Mini Longanisa Wonton Cups made with sweet cured pork, salsa, calamasi sweet chili sauce with peashoots. I liked the crispy wonton cups and hope it makes it permanently on the menu. Other things to try Flippin Adobo ‘Fili’ Cheesesteak, Long Silog Rice Bowl and Pulled Pork Pandesal sandwiches.
These frozen fruit bars came with mini taster sizes. Pictured here is Black Cherry Balsamic. Ice pops are made with organic coconut cream supplied by Blue Monkey Coconut and avaialable in various supermarkets like Whole Foods.
Sicilian risotto balls that are crispy and made with rice flour. IT is gooey with melted cheese inside.
Fusion food restaurant located at Gastown and Olympic Villages with blends of steamed buns with fresh vegetables and proteins. Weekend Hawaiian themed brunch options has Fly Hawaiian Poke and mouth watering options.
