I was reading The Province article about the city of Vancouver's decision to expand the food cart program, see the link below, and I was wondering who the local Foodie Experts were that were going to make the panel that will select the next 15 new licenses?
I've been disappointed with the food carts as I think the food being served is pricey. I rather pay the same price and sit inside to eat.
The only cart I really like is Re-Up but still on the pricey side. I wonder if it is just the cost of doing business in downtown Vancouver (licenses, food costs, etc) that prevents cheap street food?
For those that have been to Portland or other cities with Street Food, is street food expensive there too?
If not what's the difference between Vancouver and those other cities?
