Food Cart Fest in Vancouver

Starting June 28th 2015, Food Cart Fest will take place every Sunday from 12 PM-5 PM at 215 West 1st Avenue (between the Cambie Street Bridge and the Olympic Village). The site is next to the Seawall. You will need to check this festival out, so keep the date open. One of the participating food trucks is from one of the amazing restaurants I reviewed…YOLKS.

So if you live in the Downtown Vancouver area and you don’t want to drive far to eat there, then this is the place for you.

Here are the some of the participating food trucks:

Free, Real T.V Pizza.

About a week ago, Optik/Telus TV gave a free pizza to all their customers to celebrate the 5th season of Game of Thrones. You order it online. The next day, it gets delivered right to your house by the Telus van. The pizza tastes amazing. The names of the pizza (see them types of pizza below) are all Game of Thrones related. They are very creative names, looks and tastes awesome so I give it…

The Best Eggs Benny Ever!

Yolks


Address: 1298 East Hastings Street, Vancouver, British Columbia                        Ratings               Out of 10     Service: 9 ½        Decor: 8 ½            Out of 30         Food: 30      Creativity: 10     Taste: 10 Presentation: 10


You’ve got to check out Yolks. The whole restaurant its self is amazing. The food is great and the service is wonderful. They have really nice servers at Yolks and so is the owner. Inside the restaurant is a machine that literally squeezes oranges to make orange juice. It tastes great. Above is some pics of the food. The first 1 is their Egg Benedict, the second dish is the hash browns, and the last picture is their pancakes. The presentation and creativity is super. The only bad thing I can say about Yolks is that it is quite busy between 9 AM-1 PM. Otherwise I would say that their food is top notch. You’ve got to eat here.
