Whacky fusion sushi rolls // The Eatery
My personal favourite innovation here is the Jalapeno popper roll. The Eatery takes popular comfort style dishes and serves them with Japanese sushi style. They even have fun names for their inventions like the "Bob Marley Roll" and the "Barbie Roll."

Korean style Mexican // Disco Cheetah
Disco Cheetah takes our casual mexican favourites like the burrito and the taco and gives them a new flavour. Adding Korean staples in a Mexican parcel gives this place a unique taste that everyone should try. Spot this truck around the city and find its schedule here.

Spice trail fusion food // East is East
East is East incorporates the many styles of cooking found on the founding family's migration to India from Afghanistan. Their dishes emanate the perfect harmony of simple food fusions. My personal favourite is the Boulani (stuffed roti), a must try for every Vancouverite and perfect for sharing.
