Street Meet is a food truck that serves delicious mediterranean cuisine on the corner of Burrard and Pender. Chef Alessandro Vianello (@a_m_vianello on twitter) from Prestons fame and his partner Chef Mike Carter are committed to bringing restaurant-quality food to the streets of Vancouver.
What’s the name of your food cart?
What type of food do you offer and what does your cart offer the food cart community?
We offer Southern European and Mediterranean food, such as French, Greek, and Italian
Where are you typically located?
On the corner of Burrard and Pender
Someone has $15 to spend for lunch. What should they order?
They should most definitely have the Lamb Burger with Tzatziki and Macedonian Feta Cheese
In the future what type of foods do you hope to offer?
We want to offer foods that are seasonal and local wherever possible. Such as doing a spot prawn feature during spot prawn season and when sockeye salmon is running we will do some tasty dishes with that. We are not going to change the entire menu every season, things like the lamb burger will probably never come off of the menu.
What’s your top 3 sellers?
Crispy Risotto Balls with Slow Braised Pork and Truffled Basil Aioli
The Lamb Burger, and the Pork Belly Bites with Agro Dolce, essentially Italian sweet and sour sauce
If your cart played music like the ice cream truck, what song would it be and why?
Our cart actually does play music and we have a local music initiative that we call Street Beats. We feature one local band on our website and play the music on the truck. We think that it is a great way to get some amazing music for us and our patrons as well as promoting local musicians.
If you could have any person lined up at your cart, who would it be and why?
Chuck Norris of course. Cause that means that you have really made it. We hope to get the truck “Chuck Norris Approved” one day.
