Vancouver Cheap Eats: Food trucks
Food truck season is about to take full swing, which means there’s no better way to get your Vitamin D hit than to grab a bite outside. Follow your favourite food trucks on Twitter, or use the Street Food App to see where everyone is parked.
Quick, convenient and delicious, you also know you’ll be supporting local chefs do what they do best. So if you’ve got $10 to spare, here’s where to step up and order in Metro Vancouver, with our cheap eats spotlight on food trucks.
Reel Mac and Cheese
From their name to the menu items, it’s all pun and games at Reel Mac and Cheese. Try the ‘Some Like it Hot’, served with banana peppers, cayenne pepper, chili flakes and a dash Frank’s Red Hot; enjoy this comfort food staple for $9.
Address: Hastings Winter Market, PNE Grounds
Mom’s Grilled Cheese Truck
Feeling cheesy? Order the Jackson 3 daily special with brie, boursin and gruyere on Thursday for $10. It’s just like mama makes it.

Meet 2 Eat
Meet 2 Eat has instantly become a local favourite for their modern twist on Mediterranean fare. Chow down on any wrap on their menu for $10; our favourite is the Organic Garden Falafel.
