Pig on the Street

Pig on the Street is one of the 12 new Vancouver food carts that was selected by the city this year. They specialize in bacon flatbread wraps (they have a vegetarian option too). The cart is now located downtown near the Vancouver Art Gallery on Howe (between Robson and West Georgia).

I visited the Coquitlam Farmer’s Market last weekend specifically to try this place before they hit the streets of Vancouver. Instead of taking your name down when you place an order, they give you one of these adorable little wooden pigs with pig puns written on them and call out that name when your food is ready. The nerd inside of me loved the “Samwise Hamgee” and “Ham Solo” pigs.

For my lunch I ordered the porker ($8.50) which is a flatbread wrap filled double smoked bacon, stuffing, goat gouda, arugula, and apple cider chutney. Since this truck specializes in bacon, it is essential that their bacon is great. The bacon was perfectly crispy and it was thick and full of smokey flavour. The stuffing was made with bacon, sausage, sage, and apples. Needless to say it was full of bold flavour and it added another meaty element to the wrap. The arugula instead of lettuce was a nice touch and the apple cider chutney added a sweet tang to the wrap. They make their own flatbread for the wraps. It was lightly grilled and held up to the ingredients inside.

Knowlton ordered a bacon and cheese stick ($2) for a small snack. It was impressive that a full piece of bacon was wrapped around the bread stick and it was loaded up with melted cheese. However, Knowlton wished that they had served it warm and felt like it could have been better if it was heated up.

Overall, Pig on the Street makes one tasty wrap. They have perfected the art of making bacon and if you are a bacon fanatic you will not be disappointed. The wrap is filling and a satisfying amount for lunch.

Recommendation:

Yes, if you love bacon (and who doesn’t?).
