It's Eat St style baby! Eat St is one my favourite shows on Food Network, and I always thought how awesome would it be to eat at one of these trucks! I know that food trucks are on the rise in the culinary world, so why not embrace what the food trucks in Vancouver has to offer?
I really had a hard time trying to figure out what I wanted to get, but I wanted something that was fishy most definitely. I picked TacoFino, I saw it awhile back on Eat St and I thought their food looked absolutely fabulous and the owners seemed really laid back. I'm definitely there! I got the Tuna Ta-Taco for $6.50, which was a lightly sesame soy seasoned albacore tuna served with wasabi mayo, cabbage and seaweed. All wrapped in a warm flour tortilla.
The tuna was made to perfection, warm and flaky, melting apart in your mouth. There was a light heat that kicks in the back of the mouth from the wasabi which wasn't too overwhelming. Everything was balanced out with the cabbage and coolness of the seaweed, which was marinated into fabulousness and added a nice crunch to everything. Although my lunch tasted amazing I wish there was more of it, sadly there was only a few bites worth of the taco, I was left still hungry, really hungry, so far $6.50 I don't know I might have to reconsider that. I would give TacoFino a fair 7/10.
As for Michael, who had a better experience with his Eat St adventure, he went to the Re-Up Truck, which was also featured in Eat St! They are known for their beef brisket sandwiches and also their pulled pork sandwiches.
Michael had the Pulled Pork Sandwich for $7. He thought his sandwich was delicious, almost good as Jethros, the veggies added a nice crunch, and the food was quickly made but tasted fresh. He especially really like the sourdough bun, it was very soft and fluffy. The food felt a little heavy because there was a lot of meat and sauce for such small circular bun. To wash down his lunch he got a Jarritos soda, mandarin flavour from TacoFino. Nothing he has seen and thought he would give it a try, result? Not bad!
Overall with today Eat St experience, I thought it was okay, I am willing to try the other trucks in Vancouver, hopefully I will leave full and satisfied.
