One of Metro Vancouver’s newest food trucks has already made a name for itself through its unique flavours and an innovative take on bannock, a staple of First Nations food.
Mr. Bannock, which celebrated its full-scale launch in January 2018, is the city’s first Indigenous food truck and a very welcome addition to Metro Vancouver’s moving restaurants.
Paul Natrall, the Head Chef and Owner, mixed traditional flavours and cooking methods with some of today’s hottest food trends.
Time-honoured ingredients like juniper berries, wild meat, and wild smoked salmon, as well as traditional cooking methods like clay and stone baking, give new life to Natrall’s dishes.
Popular menu items on his roaming food truck include waffle bannock: juniper berry dry-rubbed chicken, between two bannock waffles, apple slaw, and hot sauce; and Indian tacos: house-made chilli, cheddar, lime sour cream, and salsa on top of fry bannock.
The menu also features classics like beef burgers and BBQ salmon burgers, using wild-caught beef and fish.
According to Natrall, a lot of his skills in the kitchen come from growing up on Squamish Nation territory as a child and watching his grandmothers cook.
