We’re big fans of supporting local businesses, and we’ve been doing just that with some of the food options we’ve brought in to feed our troops of late. Over the past few months we’ve organized some awesome edibles from businesses who have been thriving in the Vancouver street food scene. Some of our favourites: Aussie Pie Guy, Johnny’s Pops and Tübify.
Aussie Pie Guy is one of Vancouver’s first Australian-style pie food trucks. It was started in June 2013, and is owned and operated by three friends, business partners and pie lovers. They aim to make authentic Australian meat and veggie pies and desserts, and give their customers a true Aussie experience, without having to board a plane. The menu includes six types of pies: Aussie, Trifecta, Shane’s, Chook, Veggie and Sweetie.
The Johnny’s Pops bike cart launched in May 2013, and has been hitting the street every day whenever the sun is out. They sell handmade, artisanal popsicles and most of the fruits and ingredients are sourced locally, and handcrafted right here in the city. Popular favorites on the menu include Apricot Salted Caramel, Raspberry Lime, Blueberry Cardamon, Creamy Strawberry Lemonade, Avocado Lime, Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana, Strawberry Rhubarb, Blackberry Mojito, Langley Strawberries and Agassiz Elderflower and Creamy Blueberry. It’s definitely yuummmmm on a stick!
Tübify is a new take on the traditional freezie. These guys have come up with a tastier way to recreate the freezies from our childhood by incorporating fresh and healthy ingredients. It’s a blast from the past, without all the refined sugars and preservatives. Current flavours on the menu include Raspberry Raven Lemonade, Minty Moose Limeade, Blueberry Elephant, Mango Tiger and Coconut Koala Café Latte.
We are looking forward to sun, fun and more treats to come this summer. 😉
