White Spot has been an iconic brand in Vancouver and British Columbia since founder Nat Bailey started his business back in 1928 in this Model T Ford truck. Fast forward 83 years, and the classic chain is once again taking a page from its roots.
Triple O’s On The Go is the latest creation out of White Spot to jump into the local food truck scene. But it’s more than that–this is Canada’s first mobile restaurant and test kitchen by a quick service chain.
This Food Truck is one Impressive Mobile Kitchen
Eating in Vancouver was invited by White Spot for a sample of their food truck’s offerings, a good ol’ ‘Picnic in the Park-ing Lot’. The menu featured pulled-pork poutine as the appetizer, a BBQ bacon burger as the main, and lastly a couple samples of their milkshakes, Candied Orange Creamsicle and Peanut Butter Mocha. Let’s get onto how these items turned out, shall we?
Pulled Pork Poutine: This poutine had cheese curds from Quebec, potatoes reminiscent of White Spot, covered in gravy and delicious pulled pork. This was a pretty generous ‘appetizer’ portion so I barely finished mine, in preparation for the upcoming burger. I would say the fries could’ve been a bit more well done for my liking, but overall it was a solid poutine that tasted extremely satisfying.
Chipotle BBQ Bacon Burger: This burger was a regular Triple O’s burger with bacon, but it had BBQ sauce and what tasted like a chipotle mayo (like the one served with their yam fries at White Spot), shredded lettuce, tomato, and of course a pickle on the side. The bun was nicely toasted and the burger was put together perfectly. The patty was juicy, not dry and every bite was pretty awesome. I enjoyed this burger.
Candied Orange Creamsicle and Peanut ButterMocha Milkshake samplers: What took these milkshakes to the next level was the fact they have sourced a new supplier for high quality, real vanilla bean ice cream, which made these milkshakes ah-mazing. The ‘creamsicle’ flavour was pretty spot on compared to the days of eating the frozen treat. The peanut butter mocha milkshake was also tasty, but I found the combination of flavours made it a bit too sweet for my liking.
Triple O’s was really smart to jump on Vancouver’s mega popular food truck craze – with an impressive truck, delicious eats, and friendly White Spot service! You too can try tasty creations from Triple O’s On the Go on Aug 12-14 at the Abbotsford Airshow. See you there!
