The Brownie Bakers at Thank Granville It's Food trucks (TGIF)

The South Granville Business Improvement Association (SGBIA) organized Thank Granville It's Food Trucks (TGIF). Every Friday and Saturday from 11 in the morning until 8 in the evening from June through Labour Day, there will be a rotating lineup of food trucks located along West 10th Avenue at Fir Street in front of the Vancouver School Board building. Trying to catch a food truck is always a challenge. We went to TGIF today in hopes of enjoying dinner from The Jerk Shack. Unfortunately, when we got there at 6:30 PM, they're already gone. That said, we saw The Brownie Bakers. Thankfully, they have more brownie flavours still available, so I ordered one of each available flavour. Three different brownie flavours from The Brownie Bakers I mentioned in my previous, and I will reiterate that their brownie is fudgier (cake-like?) and quite different from brownies from stores. I should bring some for my youngest sister since she bakes brownies just to see what she thinks. Plai

Food Daddy Persian Cuisine at Thank Granville It's Food trucks (TGIF)

The South Granville Business Improvement Association (SGBIA) organized Thank Granville It's Food Trucks (TGIF). Every Friday and Saturday from 11 in the morning until 8 in the evening from June through Labour Day, there will be a rotating lineup of food trucks located along West 10th Avenue at Fir Street in front of the Vancouver School Board building. Happy Saturday! I am going to let you in on a little secret. I started dieting again, and do you have any idea how hard it is to diet when you love good, delicious food? That's why the number of posts has slowed down this August because preparing meals at home would allow me to control portions and ingredients. That said, it's my goal to try as many food trucks as I could that's part of TGIF. Yesterday, they announced on Instagram that a new food truck is going to be participating today. Hence, we had lunch from Food Daddy Persian Cuisine.

Mama's Fish and Chips at Thank Granville It's Food trucks (TGIF)

The South Granville Business Improvement Association (SGBIA) organized Thank Granville It's Food Trucks (TGIF). Every Friday and Saturday from 11 in the morning until 8 in the evening from June through Labour Day, there will be a rotating lineup of food trucks located along West 10th Avenue at Fir Street in front of the Vancouver School Board building. After breakfast from Crack On , we decided to take a 30-minute walk and grab two items from Mama's Fish and Chips: 2-pc fish and chips and a fresh wild salmon burger and yam fries. Then, we brought it home to enjoy while watching our Korean drama for the week: Hotel de Luna . Two pieces of fish and chips Fresh Wild Salmon Burger and Yam Fries The batter they have for the fish looks like what you will use for fried chicken. It looks different than the usual beer batter. However, I would order the Fresh Wild Salmon Burger again, or maybe I'll try their prawns next time. This meal made me miss Go Fish.

Every Friday and Saturday from 11 in the morning until 8 in the evening from June through Labour Day, there will be a rotating lineup of food trucks located along West 10th Avenue at Fir Street in front of the Vancouver School Board building. It's a long weekend! We started our Saturday morning by waking up way later than usual, and we headed to West 10th Avenue and Fir Street for breakfast sandwiches from Crack On. Top sandwich : Crack Sandwich (Two Rivers Maple Sausage, Havarti, candied jalapeno, tomato relish, lemon, garlic and thyme aioli) Bottom sandwich : Take It Easy (One Arrow Thick Cut Bacon, cheddar, bacon jam, candied jalapeno, and tomato relish) Crack On Food Truck The service was friendly, and the food was good. I love the candied jalapeno - sweet and spicy, so good. The thick-cut bacon on my sandwich is huge, and it was a couple slab which made me

Baja's Food at Thank Granville It's Food trucks (TGIF)

The South Granville Business Improvement Association (SGBIA) organized Thank Granville It's Food Trucks (TGIF). Every Friday and Saturday from 11 in the morning until 8 in the evening from June through Labour Day, there will be a rotating lineup of food trucks located along West 10th Avenue at Fir Street in front of the Vancouver School Board building. It's Saturday, and it's also Pokemon GO Fest 2021 Day 1. We spent the whole day (10 AM to 6 PM) hanging out at the VSB Park for Pokemon and food. Baja's Food is a happy surprise today. They share a food truck with Rosie's BBQ and Smokehouse , but their food is so delicious. I daresay even better than Dos Amigos Tex-Mex (although an unfair comparison since we tried different dishes). I ordered Tacos de Guisado - beef, pork, and chicken. I love the beef and chicken. However, I found the pork too salty, but it could be my low salt tolerance.  Tacos de Guisado Top : Pork and Green Tomatillo Sauce Middle : Chicken Tinga Bo

It's Saturday, and it's also Pokemon GO Fest 2021 Day 1. We spent the whole day (10 AM to 6 PM) hanging out at the VSB Park for Pokemon and food. At around 3:00 PM, I told hubby I'll order from Tornado Potato. I thought of getting the usual tornado potato, but the poutine caught my eye. It's something different! Tornado Potato Poutine The gravy is sweet, but it works well with the saltiness of the cheese curds. It's such a fun messy thing to eat and quite filling too. Tornado Potato Poutine from Tornado Potato food truck As much as I enjoy the gravy, I would have enjoyed it more if it was more savoury than sweet.

For lunch today, we ordered from Rosie's BBQ and Smokehouse. As I mentioned in my previous post about Yo-Bones BBQ . I haven't tried many Southern-style BBQ, so I can't say what is good or not, but I can tell you which ones I liked the best based on what I've tried in Vancouver so far. Since I ordered chicken and brisket sliders from Yo-Bones BBQ, I ordered the same from Rosie's. Decatur Chicken Sandwich Decatur Chicken Sandwich Smoked BBQ chicken topped with fam

Shameless Buns at Thank Granville It's Food trucks (TGIF)

Every Friday and Saturday from 11 in the morning until 8 in the evening from June through Labour Day, there will be a rotating lineup of food trucks located along West 10th Avenue at Fir Street in front of the Vancouver School Board building. Masayang Biyernes! Happy Friday! Shameless Buns have a special place in our hearts. Hubby and I were born and raised in the Philippines, so a Filipino jeepney food truck specializing in flavours we are familiar with makes Shameless Buns special. Filipino Spaghetti Lumpia I saw the Spaghetti Lumpia in an Instagram video, and I couldn't believe/understand what I just saw. But, I knew I had to try it the next time I order from Shameless Buns. Filipino-style spaghetti is sweet with ground meat, while lumpia is Filipino spring roll. Both are a staple in Filipino kids' birthday parties. However, I never thought of combining it this

Happy Friday! I am so happy to see The Brownie Bakers at TGIF. They were here a month ago, but I was in Victoria, BC and couldn't get to try their brownies. Unfortunately, we went there after office hours, and they only have one brownie flavour left. Cheesecake Swirl brownie The brownie is more cake-like than other brownies I've tried, which is more crumbly. I am unsure how to describe it, but it was enjoyable. The Brownie Bakers food truck

Beavertails at Thank Granville It's Food trucks (TGIF)

The South Granville Business Improvement Association (SGBIA) organized Thank Granville It's Food Trucks (TGIF). Every Friday and Saturday from 11 in the morning until 8 in the evening from June through Labour Day, there will be a rotating lineup of food trucks located along West 10th Avenue at Fir Street in front of the Vancouver School Board building. When the initial list of food trucks part of TGIF was released, I did a Google search to see what food each one offers, and Beavertails was just described as pastry, so being able to try it today - I realized it's essentially a flat donut. You can put different toppings on top. They mostly have sweet Beavertails and only a couple savoury ones - poutine and hotdog. The hotdog one looks like a corndog but is wrapped with delicious fried pastry. Beavertails Triple Trip The Classic I tried The Classic just to understand what they're selling, and I don't regret it. It's so delicious! I highly recommend The Classic if it

Yo-Bones BBQ at Thank Granville It's Food trucks (TGIF)

The South Granville Business Improvement Association (SGBIA) organized Thank Granville It's Food Trucks (TGIF). Every Friday and Saturday from 11 in the morning until 8 in the evening from June through Labour Day, there will be a rotating lineup of food trucks located along West 10th Avenue at Fir Street in front of the Vancouver School Board building. My experience with American-style BBQ (any BBQ originating from the US) is quite limited to Memphis Blues Barbeque House when they had a branch in West Broadway. Today, we had the chance to try Southern-style BBQ from the Yo-Bones BBQ food truck. Unfortunately, we went at almost 2:00 PM, and they've already sold out of pulled pork. Such a shame. If you're like me and you want to try almost everything on their menu, then I would recommend getting the BBQ Meat Sliders (3 pcs), and you'll be able to try all three meat - pulled pork, pulled chicken, and beef brisket. Then, you can order a 1/4 Rack of BBQ Ribs.

Ice Cream from Crema at Thank Granville It's Food trucks (TGIF)

The South Granville Business Improvement Association (SGBIA) organized Thank Granville It's Food Trucks (TGIF). Every Friday and Saturday from 11 in the morning until 8 in the evening from June through Labour Day, there will be a rotating lineup of food trucks located along West 10th Avenue at Fir Street in front of the Vancouver School Board building. After a happy lobster dinner from Salty's Lobster Shack , we grabbed ice cream from Crema. Hubby got the Matcha Berry which totally tastes like Matcha, and I got Cookie Monster which is the colour of Cookie Monster from Sesame Street. I don't know why I was expecting a typical cookie and cream ice cream. This is so much better. However, the colour is very much confusing. My blue Cookie Monster Ice Cream and hubby's green Matcha Ice Cream. Cookie Monster looking gray than blue, which frustrated me because I kept taking pictures.

Every Friday and Saturday from 11 in the morning until 8 in the evening from June through Labour Day, there will be a rotating lineup of food trucks located along West 10th Avenue at Fir Street in front of the Vancouver School Board building. I have a confession. This is my first time trying lobster. We eat crab in the Philippines a lot (my parents love seafood), but not lobster. When we migrated to Canada, I hear and see lobster on Food Network more often than I thought I would, but I never had the urge to try it. That said, we want to try all food truck that's going to be part of TGIF. Today there are four food trucks when we went there - Shameless Buns, Crema, Dos Amigos Tex-Mex, and Salty's Lobster Shack. Salty's is the only one we haven't tried, so today is the day I tried lobster.

My hubby, siblings, and I ordered ice cream from Say Hello Sweets earlier today to enjoy during a warm summer day in Vancouver. Coconut Ice Cream Chocolate Ice Cream Marshmallow Ice Cream Strawberry Coconut Ice Cream I highly recommend the Strawberry Coconut Ice Cream of all the flavours we tried today.

Buon Sabato! Happy Saturday! Today is Pok√©mon GO Community Day which means we're going to play from 11 AM to 5 PM. The nearest park from our home now has four Pokestops that you can reach in one spot, so we're happy to hang out here with the five different food trucks in the area. Mr. Arancino Mr. Arancino is not the name of a person. If you want the story behind the food truck's name, you need to check this page  on their website. Mr. Arancino specializes in one item only - Sicilian Risotto Balls (arancini) with different filling. I went bonkers on their menu and ordered two o
