As I mentioned in the previous post, there was another event, Street Food City II, at Vancouver Art Gallery, during the Dine Out Vancouver festival. Next day, I went there again, but with Collin, as he said he wanted to go for brunch. I told him there was a food truck even for breakfast!

I checked the street food app after midnight which food carts would be open that day. (I wish I can search by tomorrow or day, e.g, Saturday, and also by location, to plan ahead.) Anyways, there were too many, so I gave up looking at each one at the end.

So, first off, Collin found a truck where someone who he knows was on. It was Ze Bite. They offer French gourmet fast food, including stews and baguette sandwiches.

We ordered from their stew menu. Stew comes with rice or couscous and bread, and you can choose a size either small or large.

Rice was brown rice, which is recently getting popular in Vancouver, and stew was thick that I can’t even believe it is used gluten free ingredients. That’s impressive. They have vegetarian choices, too.

The stew taste was OK. I prefer to Collin’s. Haha. Maybe, I would try some baguette next time.

I was going to Farmer’s Market, but it was little too late for that when I left home. So, I went to Granville Island instead. After getting some fresh fruits and veggies, I went to the bakery to buy bread.

La Baguette et L’Echalote Bakery is in front of the entrance of Public Market. The last time I went, I found they had Epi bread, so I was hoping that they carried on that day. Fortunately, they had whole baked one and part baked one. I bought part baked one, because whole one was firm like French bread and I thought I can control how firm I bake part one.

Collin and I walked around the booth at Eat! Vancouver and also found ChoPain where sold croissants. As they said croissants were on the way, we walked around more other stuff and went back to their booth before we left the event.

The company name seemed to be Boulangerie Chopain, as far as I searched, and their old website and old Facebook page is gone just before this post was published. (I had to revise it. :)) Based on their old site, there might be some seats to eat in.
