It is a regular afternoon. It is sunny but wind is very chilling. I am walking along the row of restaurant on my both sides and I am feeling a little hungry and at the same time thinking about what to eat now. I have here restaurants like Hard Rock, Beer Café, Oh Calcutta, The wine Company and some nice dining restaurants. Suddenly I notice a food truck which is placed on a corner and drawing the attention of foodies.
Recently I have read about Vancouver food trucks as they have become very popular in Canada. Earlier government had allowed to have only one food truck and only if they were selling hot dogs. In 2005 they lifted the bylaw and allowed them in the city, but making sure the food truck meals are the best quality by making them go through vetting process.
The food truck is in fact a mini bus and people can see the kitchen all set within it and the offsite kitchen makes me more interested to eat there. I see people are making the kitchen busy.
As I am vegetarian so I select a Paneer Steak Burger and I am carefully watching how they are preparing it. I feel it is really good to watch how they are making and follow the hygiene standard.
I try to have a word with the manager Bhawani Trivedi. I get to know that he is ex HM student and he is in hospitality industry for last 20 years and he is propelling his passion for food and serving it with the best standard. He says this idea of food truck is getting very popular and getting into fashion.
He says: “We have five such food trucks and which are available in Gurgaon, Delhi, and Noida. These trucks allow 3 men to cook in each one of them and a driver. We mostly have fixed places for 5 days but on off days we shift to new locations like today we are in Gurgaon.”
I noted this man has made friends and people are making him busy every now and then. As he gets busy with others I enjoy my soft Paneer Burger and it is really very delicious in taste.
I really appreciate the taste. He says: “It is not very easy to make any vegetarian foodie happy as they are very particular about the taste.”
He asks me to taste their new Veg Kathi Wrap. It takes a little time to cook so we get to talk a little more.
