By

I’m not keen on “top 10” or “best of” lists, but as the BC blogger and ambassador for BC Pork and Passion for Pork, I had to sum up the year in pork and this only made sense. They are not necessarily “the best”, but they are 10 dishes I would recommend to any pork lover.

Fat Duck Mobile Eatery (Food Truck)

By

The name Fat Duck Mobile Eatery was not inspired by Heston Blumenthal’s Fat Duck in London, but he knew people would make the association (I did). Olsen decided to call his truck Fat Duck because he simply loves duck, and duck cooked in duck fat (we already agreed on 2 things). Thus his favourite item on his menu is the Duck Confit sandwich (now we agree on 3 things).

By

Rather than a food truck, Johnny invested in a fully functional bike cart which is one of the very few in Vancouver. Powered by Johnny’s leg power he pedals around the city selling his handmade artisan popsicles made with all natural ingredients and fresh fruit puree. Try the avocado lime popsicle!

A taco sounds like a simple thing, equivalent to the American sandwich, but there are things to consider when “judging” them.

By

This city is synonymous with food and good restaurants. People visit just to eat and it is truly a treat to be in San Francisco. It is home to some of America’s “Best Restaurants” and my main purpose for this trip was to judge Cathay Pacific’s Noodles of Asia contest, but I couldn’t help but to extend my stay…

JJ’s Trucketeria (Food Truck)

By

The menu might not look as exciting or creative as some of the other food trucks, but give it a chance. It is typical Asian comfort food and their potions are enough for two. All sauces and marinades are made from scratch and it is one of the most budget friendly food trucks offering great value in Vancouver.
