“These food truck locations will be a catalyst for bringing great food and urban vibrancy together throughout Surrey. It is hoped that the 2014 pilot program will also lead to bigger and better food vending opportunities in the future” says Richard Ryan, Business Operations Manager and Support Services for the City of Surrey.

Food trucks scheduled to make a weekly appearance include Didi’s Greek, DougieDog, Holy Perogy, Le Tigre, Mogu, Pig on the Street, Re-Up BBQ, Reef Runner, Roaming Dragon, Soho Road, Varinicey Pakoras, Vij’s Railway Express, Yolk’s Breakfast, and Ze Bite.
