Poke’m – Vancouver Street Vendor
Street cart vendors, mobile food stalls, street eats … whatever you want to call it, the recent development of Vancouver’s street food scene has allowed its hungry, experimental citizens to explore different dishes throughout Vancouver. I’m always excited to turn a corner and see a bright, colorful mobile structure serving anything other than hotdogs! My first experience was with Poke’m on the corner of Hornby and Robson. For $3.75 you can purchase a small dish of meat balls (chicken, beef, fish, fish tofu, fish fritters, or cuttlefish) and combine it with your sauce style of Japanese, Caribbean, Korean, Vietnamese, or traditional curry fishball sauce. Your food combination is then tossed and grilled on the BBQ, and flavoured with toppings (from seaweed to peanuts) depending on your sauce choice.
