Happy sunny long weekend great foodies!
We took a trip down to the Street Food Fest at the Waldorf Hotel last Sunday.

Check this out as it is open until the end of summer and it is a great place to try some great food trucks all in one area as well as listen to some great music outside the Waldorf while you taste the wondrous flavors all in one spot!
This particular Sunday I was able to try
Street Meet
This beautiful food truck serves European style Street food with fine dining techniques.
The friendly (mostly Italian smiling faces) follow the motto

Meet…Eat…. Repeat!

An excerpt from their web page:
Street Meet is a mobile restaurant that serves up the most delicious Mediterranean food using the best local and sustainable products that are available to us here on the West Coast of Canada. Established in 2012 by Chef Alessandro Vianello and Chef Mike Carter, both born and raised in Vancouver.
The line up at the food festival was long but fairly quick and may I say…. Soooo worth the wait.
This great truck as I have mentioned in most of my blogs created food made from the heart and soul of these fine chefs and despite how hot it was that day (especially in the truck) did it with a smile!
First up:

Crispy Risotto Balls $5 – Stuffed with Slow Braised Pork and Green Olives, Truffle Aioli. Words can’t translate the flavor to the page but trust me when I say, outta this world Street Meet!

Next…..

Pork Belly Bites $7 – Italian Agro Dolce Sauce
If my smile wasn’t already big enough this dish did it! It was the prefect balance of sweet and savory and again served on a bed of fresh greens….mmm

Lastly (but admittedly on a different day)…

Cannoli Cones – Tiramisu Filling
As mouth watering as one would imagine.
You must try one or share with a friend or sweetie!
Did I mention these fine chefs commitment to sustainability and local purchases? They do everything they can to source the best quality and healthiest ingredients.
