There is also an Eat Street cookbook that just launched! What better way than to publish a cook book that shows you how to prepare some of your delectables from your favorite food truck?! I can’t wait to try it!
I believe that I heard that one of Vancouver’s own foodie photographers may have some of his own “outta this world” food pictures showcased in this Eat Street gem…. Could it be true @YVRBCbro ?
