Back at the old place, I did a post about Vancouver's bid to promote street eats by rolling out a food cart pilot project.
Well, the results of the lottery to determine who gets a coveted license to peddle their wares on the streets of our fair city are in. And they're, well, kind of underwhelming.
At first blush, there's not a lot of variety. Sure, a heavy Asian influence was to be expected, but the lack of any South Asian/Indian options sticks out, as does the lack of innovation. I love meat on a stick, but it's not exactly a bold culinary statement.
Still, you gotta start somewhere and hopefully this project will be a big success and food carts become a permanent fixture of Vancouver's street culture.
