I stumbled upon one of the new Vancouver street food carts today! After wandering around in Kits, then enjoying Granville Island, I took one of the mini ferries across to Dr. David Lam park. It was there that I spotted the mini bus that serves as the PanDa Fresh Bakery food stall!
I was quite surprised by the offerings – croissants as street food? Hmm…
I chose the very sweet-sounding S’more Croissant ($4) and observed as the young man in the bus reached into the oven of the full-sized stove that was located right behind where the driver’s seat was!
Getting a hot croissant out of the oven, he prepared it with lots of grated dark chocolate, mini marshmallows, and the genius of adding a lady finger cookie which added some great “crunch” to the treat.
It tasted great! The croissant itself was good (flakey and warm, but not buttery), but I think I liked the filling more overall.
A pretty crazy idea for street food, and definitely hard to eat, but very fun!
