Behind the Scenes at Vancouver Food Truck, Vij’s Railway Express

Over the past year, Vancouver’s ever-growing street food scene has become cutthroat – and not surprisingly considering the impressive resumes of many of our outdoor chefs.

Take Vikram Vij, for example, owner and chef of the first featured truck in our series: Vij’s Railway. His South Granville Indian restaurant, Vij’s, is known as one of the best in North America, he’s guest judged on Food Network Canada’s hit show: Top Chef Canada, and now his intensely flavoured creations are available on the street for around $10.

He met us at the bright turquoise truck – which he’s decorated with family keepsakes, like grandma’s tea pot – to cook three of his most popular dishes and tell us why he’s turned to the world of street food.
