The creative food from Shameless will surely convert many to dine on funky Filipino food more regularly. Shameless gets its sweet buns from local favourite Aling Mary’s Filipino Store, and the soft, fresh bundles of joy are incorporated into over half the menu. Find this vehicle at festivals and markets around Metro Vancouver over the summer, you can also track the truck down by checking its location on the Street Food App.
