Yes, Vancouver is Hollywood-gorgeous - a postcard-perfect setting of snow-capped mountains and emerald forests overlaid with a scrim of misty ocean blue - but it's also delicious, thanks in no small part to the city's renascent foodie truck craze.
For decades, city restrictions prohibited the sale of anything other than hot dogs and roasted chestnuts sold as sustenance on Vancouver's streets.
Then, in 2010, after years of lunching on popcorn and ice cream bars, the city council expanded the options for food permits with a focus on nutritious food that represents the cultural diversity of Vancouver while also providing affordable food options for low-income communities.
Three years later, Vancouver has more 130 diverse food trucks and carts and a burgeoning reputation as one of North America's best street food cities. One of the tastiest ways to chew your way through the city's best curbside cuisine is with Vancouver Foodie Tours. Founder Michelle Ng says, "Food rules my world" and Ng is determined to show visitors some of Vancouver's best lunchtime munchies.
