The Eat St. cookbook is full of eye-popping food photography (including from FBC BC admin Sean Neild) as well as great snapshots of the trucks, people, and chefs behind the mobile-truck food revolution that’s sweeping the nation.

“Food trucks are all the rage these days across North America and it’s no secret that some of the most delicious food around is being served curbside by the world’s most creative people,” says Penguin Publishing Director Andrea Magyar.

Love the classics of course like a great burger with a twist, but really love the trucks offering international foods like Arepas or etc!


The classic street meat, hot dogs! I really wish there were more food trucks in Victoria.

Sarah Reynolds

I count Red Fish Blue Fish as street food here in Victoria and its awesome. I love everything I’ve tried on the menu so far!

Shari Johnston

I once had this crazy hot dog from Koi Fusion in Portland. It was amazing! Topped with beef bulgogi, kimchi, bacon, etc. It was a hot mess but totally worth the stained jacket.


I have way too many favourite street eats from the trucks here in Vancouver, all from different culinary categories. I love the fish burrito from Tacofino, everything from The Juice Truck, the Terimayo dog from Japadog, and the Chicken Fried Oyster Po-Boy from Fresh Local Wild. So much nom to be had on Vancouver streets!

I’d love to say that I have a favorite street eat, but because of having to eat a gluten-free diet, I’m usually stuck with only the french fry truck. 😛 BUT – if I had the recipes, I could convert those recipes to gluten-free ones, and enjoy them at home anytime!

I love burgers – all burgers, especially ones topped with a fried egg or peanut butter. Here in Ottawa they are launching over 10 new food trucks this May – the city (and myself) are very excited! I am very excited about the launch of this cookbook – it is one of those shows on the Food Network that makes me hungry every time I watch!

Ice cream in NYC! I actually saw it on an Eat St episode and had to head there when I got to NYC last October.


I wish I had a long list of street eats from which to choose my fav. But the food truck scene is only reaching the eastern shores now. So far, my fav is the waffle breakfast sammie with local bacon, a local egg and incredible apple butter from my friends at one of Halifax’s newest food trucks, Nomad Gourmet.

My fav is the pork belly sliders with a side of fries from Drift Food truck in Edmonton, AB.. Also had the opportunity to try chairman Bao in San Fran and that was awesome! It took sweet and steamed buns to an entirely new level!


In Oahu we visited all of the food trucks on the North Shore and did a Scampi tasting… hard to pic a fav as each was so different from the other, yet outstanding! In Edmonton, Drift Food Truck makes great local everything… from homemade ketchup on their incredible fries to their famous pulled pork and pork belly. In Calgary, the CharCut Alley Burgar is great street food – and their food truck is yummy too – I go for their duckfat fried poutine. You haven’t lived til you’ve tried it!

I usually lean towards the ‘ole classic street meat… Hotdogs!!! Although, if someone has Taco in a Bag, I will get that instead 🙂

Joyce Lam

In Vancouver, my favourite street eat so far is the Lamb Kebab from Mangal Kiss, with a close second of Fish Taco from Tacofino. Mmmm…writing/reading this comment makes me hungry!

Cindy Fendall

While at a festival in London, ON I had a Pulled Chicken Tamale Tart from the Tart & Soul food truck. Freshly made and delish!
