Hey, it’s officially warmed up, the summer menu is coming out soon and there is no better place for lunch this week than at Mom’s Grilled Cheese Truck! Right in the middle of Vancouver, at Howe and Robson, beside Robson Square and the Vancouver Art Gallery. Get yourself down here and take a wild guess….what year was this picture taken of Mom? Hmmmm, inquiring minds want to know!
Big shout-out today to Rider from Campbell River! Rider is here in Vancouver for a hockey tournament and made a point of stopping by Mom’s Grilled Cheese Truck for some pregame nourishment and good luck food. Go get’m Rider, and thanks again for visiting us.
Well, there is no escaping the arrival of winter in Vancouver, as the rains have returned. It’s like someone flipped a switch last week and we went from summer to winter….such is life in the big city. However the good news is, Mom’s has the perfect recipe to chase of the winter blues. Check our Amer, enjoying his double Swiss Provolone. So good he can’t take his eyes off of it. get yourself down to mom’s today for a warm lunch and add a Roasted Tomato Soup topped with basil mascarpone. Mmmmmmmmm, soup is good food!
Vancouver is now world class in the street food vendors scene. Mom’s Grilled Cheese is so proud to have been a part of this movement and we are really rockin now! A big thank you to the City of Vancouver and City councillor Heather Deal who started the process of change and bringing street food vendors to our streets back in 2008.
There was a great write up on our street scene in today’s Vancouver Province by Frank Luba which also included a complete map to all food cart locations. Here is a excerpt from Franks write up today: “It took two more years before Vancouver’s street food finally expanded beyond hotdogs. In 2010, the city held a lottery for 17 licenses to add new types of street food. There was a tsunami-like response — approximately 800 entries from about 400 vendors. The program expanded again in 2011, and beginning May 1, another 12 operations will have licences to sell food on the street adding more choices to the international buffet already on the street with everything from Asian fusion to Mexican, Korean, Vietnamese, Ukrainian and Greek foods. You can even find good old comfort food like grilled cheese sandwiches. The May increase brings the total to 103 stationary food carts, with another three to be selected by the Vancouver Park Board for Stanley Park, Queen Elizabeth and Vanier park to be open by June 1”
It’s a chilly rainy day today……perfect for a Mom’s cup of soup or home made chili, we’ll see you for lunch.
