Street Food aka Sweet Food at Night at the Aquarium

Yes Vancouver is a paradise for great food it also has a growing mecca of Street Food carts! Students of the Pastry Class at the Pacific Institute of Culinary Arts have created  a selection of desserts dubbed ‘Street Food’ from Tacos to Hamburgers and Lasagna to Ice Cream Pops. You can’t get these sweet street food bites on the street, the only place to indulge in these sweet creations is by attending Vancouver Aquarium’s ‘Night at the Aquarium’ fundraiser event on June 10th.
