Toni’s Top Three

I had a great time this spring and summer sampling street cart food around downtown Vancouver with my good buddy Toni.

Lining up for street food is a lot more fun when you’re with a friend, so I will really miss Toni and our lunchtime gastronomic adventures. Today was her last day of work before she heads onward and upward to pursue her dream to become an architect.

Here’s to you, Toni…and to friendships being forged with the help of good food….and to dreams coming true.

In no particular order, here are our top three picks:

Arturo’s Mexico To Go. On Cordova and Howe, by Canada Place.

My favourite among Arturo’s offerings: the Gringa, a soft taco stuffed with roast pork.
Next up: La Brasserie, corner of Granville and Georgia, by the Canada Line station.
Only one item on the menu, which makes for simple prep and a relatively short wait: a roast chicken sandwich with fried onions, on a delicious white bun. Drizzle of grainy mustard is a must.
Finally, the Roaming Dragon on Burrard and Robson, across from HMV. We didn’t get to try all the tempting choices on their menu, but we did like the pork belly sliders and the deep fried rice balls, accompanied by an icy glass of lychee-basil lemonade.
