One of the many exciting events as part of the vibrant culinary programming offered during Dine Out Vancouver’s festival, Street Food City turns the renovated Vancouver Art Gallery Plaza into a pop-up food truck pod daily from January 21 through 27.

Participating street food vendors, in trucks and carts, will rotate throughout the week. That means you’ll find a different line-up of vendors there daily. No worries, either, about where to eat your food or being rained on: There will be plenty of on-site seating, with tents to keep your loaded fries, Pad Thai, grilled cheese sandwiches, pierogies, and tacos out of the rain.

“This eighth annual edition of Street Food City is testament to the event’s ongoing popularity,” says Lucas Pavan, Manager, Membership & Dine Out Vancouver Festival, Tourism Vancouver.

Here are all the vendors slated to participate in the 2019 edition of Street Food City:

Cannoli King
Cazba Express
Come Arepa
Didi’s Greek
Disco Cheetah
Fat Duck
Melt City
Mom’s Grilled Cheese
