In the last September, although it was raining a bit, I decided to go to Friday Night Market in North Vancouver. It was held at Lonsdale Quay Pier on Fridays between May to October. When I headed, I told Collin I would be there and meet me after work.

First, I looked around which food trucks were there, when I got there. There were a few new trucks, but I didn’t feel like eating their foods and went for one of the famous food trucks, which was Feastro. They primarily serve tacos. I watched their food on TV, and since then, it was on my wish list.

I ordered their primary dish, four tacos, two for me and two for him.

Two Jerk Chicken Tacos
(Jerk Chicken, Tomato & Star Anise Chutney, Shaved Cabbage, Chipotle Aioli, Sour Cream, Corn Salsa, Pickled Jalapenos)

We took those two tacos home, so they looked awful, but it was our fault. We should have eaten at the market. It was raining, and we didn’t want to stay there. Anyways, he ate the pulled pork tacos and liked it, but he preferred jerk chicken. I ate the tuna tacos and really liked it.

While I was at Friday Night Market in North Vancouver, I ordered three dishes from two food trucks. When the food from the second truck was ready, Collin joined me, and we walked around. For him, it was the first time at the market.

When we got to the end of the food trucks, we found a truck that was not for dinner. Collin got stuck there! It was Candy Meister. There are so many kinds of candies sold in each small package. You can ask some sample before buying. If you buy 3 packages, you get some discount.

He bought one kind.

Eucalyptus Menthol Sticks
(Medium Strength Throat Candy, refreshing menthol flavour)

Eucalyptus is a tree that Koala likes, isn’t it? It was really refreshing because of menthol. It says gluten-free and dairy-free on this kind.

Having had a rice bowl at Friday Night Market in North Vancouver, I walked along the other trucks. I kept the half of the rice bowl for Collin, and I decided to order something else from another truck.

I was there after 8 pm, so some of the food trucks were ready to close. I quickly chose an open truck, although I tried their food before. Guanaco Truck serves Salvadoran food. Have you tried that?

I asked them what Yuca was. She game me a sample, and it was like a huge firm potato fry. Anyways, I ordered one that we liked before, and this Yuca fries.

Chicken Pasteles (3 pc)
(Deep fried Maize pocket stuffed with Meat, Cheese and Vegetables)

As I wrote before, Pasteles are like deep fried bread like Pirozhki, or Empanada. They are so tasty!

Yuca Frita
(Thick cut deep fried Cassava Root)

One serve was huge! I wish they have a smaller size. Besides, Collin didn’t like much. We couldn’t finish them all.

I ordered a dish from the other truck before these, so I didn’t order entrée dish. I really want to try Pupusa next time.
