We were shivering our way through the streets of Vancouver, when we got an incredible whiff of toasted bread, tomato soup, and cheese. We kept walking because let's face it - that'd be too good to be true. Then we remembered Vancouver is the birth place of Daiya cheese (oh yes!) and turned back to check it out. Ding ding ding! Not only does Mom's Grilled Cheese Truck have Daiya, they have Gluten Free bread too! And although it's 75 cents extra, they give you TWO sandwiches because the slices are so small - which ends up being more food than the other breads! Score! When I ordered, they asked if I wanted my grilled cheese cooked in a separate pan, and she even changed her gloves when working with my food. Seriously awesome service. The sandwiches come served in these fun retro-style cones with a pile of potato chips at the bottom! No weird GF texture, and zero sacrifice on the taste. Hands down the best grilled cheese I've ever had. The tomato soup is also vegan (if you get it without the cheese they dribble on top), and it was closer to marinara sauce than tomato soup - which was ideal for dipping and totally rocked my world.
Tomato "marinara" goodness
I'm so happy I found this gem toward the beginning of my trip and I will soon be a regular here. Visit momsgrilledcheesetruck.com for location and hours. If you're in Vancouver - this is a MUST.
The hubby and I are in Vancouver - he for business, I for the food. Rawsagna from an underground Raw/Vegan/Organic restaurant? Yes, please! A Chinese restaurant that's entirely vegan? Ok! Gluten free chocolate donuts? All day long, baby.
