Tummies are going to rumble in the parking lot this year. And in the PNE Forum. Why, even vegans are getting thrown a bone. So, just who is duking it out to be captain of the cooks at this year’s Vancouver Mini Maker Faire?
Porky’s Food Truck
These guys are big bratwursts – for $7. In fact, they are the absolute wurst, German curry wurst that is, for $7 too. And they Bavarian cheese smokies far too much, also $7. Here, pull my pork, $8.
Cup a Corn
Corny jokes can’t do justice to the good taste of this cup of gourmet flavoured corn kernels, $5 a pop. Six flavours.
These guys are wasting away in Pizza Margherita-ville for $10. Some say they’re all mobbed up with the Calabrese Salami Pizza for $11 and they may well be – get there early.
Johnny’s Pops (& Brûlée)
Put strawberry basil on ice and will do it again for a price. Turned blueberry cardamom into a popsicle too. Burned cream badly into a delicious vanilla bean crème brûlée. Same goes for bourbon and pecan.
REEL Mac and Cheese
Hey Mac, quit being so cheesy, for $8. Things get spicy when they go banana’s for peppers for $9.
Cheese that takes a grilling but melts when squeezed for bread. A classic grilled two cheese squeeze. Also, So Gouda, it has got smoked bacon with caramelized apples and gouda cheese. Yeah, there’s more.
Scallop and shrimp like to roll up and party with pickle and green onions. In fact they’re having a ball – seven of them for $6.
Careful, their pakoras can take a beeting, which makes them just super – Super Beet pakoras. Original has chopped onions, carrots, yams, kale, and swiss chard. Things get hot when the serrano peppers show up. Start small for $5.50, or go big for $10.
Chickadee Bakery (inside)
It’s all butter for these bakers! Willing to redecorate your mini-cupcakes for a price. Cookies, brownies, scones, cheese biscuits, all the sin in the world and then s’more. Starts at $2.50 and goes to $5.
Living Lotus (inside)
Gluten, dairy, refined sugar and soy free riders. Vegan macaroons, fudge, chocolate ganache and candied nuts from $2 to $18. Nobody gets hurt in the making of this food but no promises otherwise!
In a foodie fight, the eaters always win. The more contenders you take on for take-away, the more likely you are to find your lunchtime leader of the pack. Take the challenge to try to find your new favourite roving restaurant!
