When I was perusing the Vancouver Street Food App a couple weeks ago and saw Via Tevere Express, I almost lost my marbles. I quickly did some googling and discovered that the oh so fabulous Via Tevere pizzeria from the Commercial area had most definitely opened up a food truck! I'm not going to lie, I may have done a little happy dance at my desk.
The truck serves Saltimbocca sandwiches which is like a pizza in sandwich form if you ask me. Imagine bread that tastes like pizza dough, baked in a wood fire oven (yes folks, this food truck most definitely has a built in wood fire oven!) then stuffed with fresh, simple ingredients. Mouth watering goodness! I literally was transported back to the sandwich that I had when visiting Pompeii. Add to that, that the portion was filling and the price was reasonable...I was very impressed. I'd definitely recommend making your way to this food truck sometime soon!
Things to note: (1) The Via Tevere Food Truck is located on the West side of Burrard between Pender and Hastings, Monday through Friday. (2) I believe it is cash only, but don't quote me on that.
My Prosciutto/Arugula Saltimbocca: prosciutto crudo, fior di latte, arugula, tomato, basil mayo. AMAZING! ($8.50)
Oh...you're going to make my taste buds oh so happy!!!
Where the magic happens.
What exactly is a Saltimbocca? Now you know.
