Hey guys! I just realized it's been 3 months since my last post, oops! Damaris has been under the weather this week, so I'm in charge of today's post.
Last weekend we went to the Van Van Market, a gourmet food truck market that took place in La Ciutadella park during this week. Although food trucks are very popular in other countries (did you watch #Chef? quite fun to check it out), they are not very common in Barcelona due to an old city legislation that doesn't allow mobile food on the streets.
Luckily a group of young talented guys & gals are making food trucks a reality in the city and, although currently they can only work at special events (weddings, private parties, ...) and festivals (like El Festivalet or the Lost&Found market), they are becoming more popular every day. This time they were joining forces in the Van Van market to show to the city what can they offer; after the good reception (45' average waiting for food!) I'm wishing we will be seeing more of them in a near future around the city.
As we love to eat out so much (ok, maybe too much!) we were eager to try every food truck and made plans about going every day. Unfortunately Damaris has been sick these days so we couldn't go through the entire plan, but we were able to visit two days and eat as much as we could (ok, after this confession now I realize we like eating too much).
Have you got food trucks in your city? Which type of food truck is your favorite? Have you ever attended a food truck market like the Van Van? I will be eager to read what do you think about these mobile gems!
