I lie in wait for food cart news and here’s a morsel juicier than a La Brasserie beer-brined chicken sandwich: Food Network’s Eat St. is back in Vancouver filming September 6-9.

And another: Simon Fraser University launches Street Eat Thursdays today, September 6. Every Thursday, food carts will venture up to the Burnaby campus and set up in the courtyard between Saywell Hall and the Academic Quadrangle from 11am-2pm.

Today, Japadog, Vancouver’s most famous food cart, will visit SFU’s Burnaby campus. So if the student one seat over is giving off an alluring aroma of terimayo in your afternoon lecture, you know why.
