I’m sure you all know I have a ravenous appetite for food served from a truck/trailer/cart. I don’t think serving food on the street makes the food better but as a blue collar, on the go kind of guy it works well for me. It doesn’t hurt that most of the street food in Vancouver is lights out delicious either, we are truly spoiled for choice and it’s all come together in a relatively short time.
Coma Food Truck has been around for a while and I’m suprised it’s taken me this long to give them a try. They’re one of the trucks in town that doesn’t have a “permanent” location so following them on Twitter or using the Street Food App on your iPhone is a must. They serve a Mexican/Korean/American fusion style menu offering tacos, burritos, Bibimbap, soups and much more. The day I visited was one of the first “cold” days in Vancouver this year and while I waited for my order they were giving out Korean Miso soup to keep their customers warm, so nice! The soup was great, a spicy version of Miso soup that was perfect for a cold day. It was also a little less salty than traditional Miso soup which is definitely a good thing.
I asked for a recommendation from the crew in the truck and they said I should try the spicy pork burrito. Spicy pork? Yes please! The Burrito was good, not overly spicy and was filled with cheese, tofu and corn to compliment the pork. The tortilla was lightly grilled as well giving it a nice little crunch.
Make sure you follow them on Twitter @comafoodtruck, Keep up to date with Vancouver’s street food scene with Street Food App and get outside and support local food trucks, even when the weather sucks!! You never know, you might find me at the window of a food truck one day!
