Every six weeks or so, I take a day trip down to Bellingham to visit friends and family, buy some ridiculously cheap cheese, and eat some comfort food that I just can’t get in Vancouver. (The cheese in the states really is less than half the price than anything you’ll find up here.) And don’t get me wrong; there’s a plethora of comfort food options all over the city. My problem is the lack of good Mexican food to fill my belly and satiate that desire for a truly well-assembled burrito. You either have that desire now that I’ve mentioned it, or you’re not a fan of burritos. If you fall in the latter category, I aim to change your opinion on burritos, friends.
First of all, to find any street food in Vancouver, you’ll want to use that smartphone that’s constantly tethered to you. Sure, you could just walk around until you happen upon something you like, but that’s a fool’s way to search for sustenance when you’re craving something very specific. Here’s an app I found that is now free to download (and I paid a whole dollar a few months ago like a sucker). It will tell you which food trucks are open, which are nearby, hours of operation, and reviews. It’s the best food truck-specific app out there, and they’ve made everything super easy for you to find your lunch in a snap. Use it and love it. Now let’s get back to the food.
