Vancouver’s food truck fleet is about to gain a new addition thanks to Miss Siam, a four-wheeled eatery specializing in Thai food.
Owned and operated by Lek (also known as Amornrat Watthanachai), Miss Siam plans to hit the road in early May.
Once up and running, Miss Siam will offer a menu focused on authentic Thai cuisine, with an emphasis on dishes from southern Thailand, where Lek originally hails from.
Lek, who has about 30 years of experience preparing Thai food, reveals that Miss Siam will offer familiar dishes such as Pad Thai, basil chicken, and red and green curries.
More unique items will include a citrus cashew dish, a sweet and sour stir fry with pineapple, and a southern rice salad called Khao Yum, which includes lemongrass, long beans, mango, toasted coconut, and lime leaves. Crispy spring rolls and fresh veggie rolls will also be available. Drink wise, Miss Siam will offer Thai iced tea.
At this stage the Miss Siam food truck will serve lunch from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., and will occasionally be open in the evening from 4 to 8 p.m.
Miss Siam will be roaming outside the downtown area when it rolls into town. The best place to check for the food truck’s daily schedule is via the Street Food app. Lek will also be posting Miss Siam’s schedule on Twitter once the mobile eatery begins serving its meals on wheels.
