What we have yet to see in Vancouver is food trailer or vans set up shop in one location or move location to location. This is a big trend in L.A. and Portland. Until then, you can visit the little parking lot across from the RONA in Richmond and discover something new and good from a trailer!
Enjoy a japanese style fritter, freshly made in a trailer parked in the lot. The ingredients are the same for every fritter – shrimp, squid, quail egg, fish cake, cabbage, calamari and rice cake. Don’t expect the fritters to be bite-size. Oh no, they are indeed a meal. When you place your order, you choose one of 7 sauces as the topping: curry, chili mayo, original, wasabi mayo, mustard mayo, pizza and a special sauce.
I especially like the curry and chili mayo. They arrive steaming hot with fish flakes dusted on the top to make this a sensational savoury treat. It’s like something you would have at the Richmond Night Market. $5 per fritter, a great deal.
It’s worth the venture out to Richmond for something different. Heck, do some shopping at Rona, visit Steveston, make it an afternoon affair! ;o)
