If you feel in the mood for some tasty salmon and great Westcoast flavors head on down to the corner of Georgia and Granville streets and visit the Kaboom Box
A word from the Kaboom Box owner Andrew:
The Kaboom Box was founded to bring fresh, sustainable, healthy and local food to the streets of Vancouver. We use only the best ingredients, sourced locally whenever possible, and prepare all our food fresh to order with care and love of the trade. We are committed to serving only Oceanwise seafood and sustainably produced meat. Likewise we use organic vegetables whenever possible and are committed to using biodegradable and compostable packaging.

What is Ocean wise?

Ocean Wise’s Recommendations:

Ocean Wise’s recommendations are based on 4 criteria. An Ocean Wise recommended species is:

*Abundant and resilient to fishing pressures.
*Well managed with a comprehensive management plan based on current research.
*Harvested in a method that ensures limited bycatch on non-target and endangered species.
*Harvested in ways that limit damage to marine or aquatic habitats and negative interactions with other species.

On the menu today?
A Hot smoked salmon sandwich of course!

Served with Kaboom Box house made poutine. Not all poutines are created equal and of course you will find many iterations of poutine. Andrew does it right…. They start with local potatoes, wonderful Quebec cheese curds and fresh made mushroom gravy…. Definitely a tasty poutine and great accompaniment (low calorie of course…. Ok may not but very tasty)

The sandwich was served on a fresh roll, served with fresh slaw and a great sauce with a little kick to it!
The layers of textures and flavors were bang on and in fact left you wanting for your next bite!

Did I mention “hot smoked”?…. Okay redundant question I realize… In fact they smoke the salmon right on the truck the very morning that you eat your sandwich….
Kaboom box wants to make sure that you get the freshest caught and prepared salmon possible so you can enjoy the best tastes of the Westcoast.

If salmon isn’t on your taste bud menu today, try any number of their fresh prepared treats…..
They have a good list of popular items according to their regulars…
