Brand New Season
So here it is, a new year and a new street food season. The harsh winter has not been an idle one for us and we have been busy working on a few new items for the new season. We have been researching, cooking and, well, eating to bring you a couple of exciting new flavors.
First of all, we have the newest addition to our fleet, the Eva Sweet Waffle trailer. The trailer was specially designed to fit in smaller spaces. The trailer is perfect for our newest location in front of the Strathcona Farmers Market and should be there starting May 14th on Saturdays. We are looking forward to spending Saturdays at the market meeting customers new and old as well as shopping for fresh goods!
Street Food Scene Matures
Is it just us, or are more people out there hunting the streets for their dinner. Nope, it is not just us. Street food has become a force to be reckoned with in North America in the last few years. This year is no exception to that trend with a host of new food trucks hitting the streets of Toronto, Vancouver, and yes, even Edmonton. We welcome the new food vendors out there and hope that this trend continues. We encourage all of you out there, seasoned street food connaiseurs and "noobs" alike to try catching some of the new street fare during the week and at the Farmers Markets.
Just in case you are not convinced, you might want to check out the new Eat Street website and TV show on the Food Network. We are thrilled to see such positive action on the street food scene and we were even more thrilled when we were first listed. You should definately download the Eat Street app and follow Eat Street Tweets @EatStTweet if you dare to commit to this brave new world. See you on the streets!
Thank You to Avenue Magazine
We feel very honored and greatful for the recognition we received in Avenue Magazine's Top 25 Best Things to Eat in Edmonton list for 2011. It was an unexpected surprise by one of our favorite local magazines, so the news was especially sweet. We recently received a beautiful plaque honoring our Vanilla Liege Waffle and we will work hard in the coming year to deserve our place on this list. I am also comitting myself to trying all of the other foods on the list. I know...tough job :)

We are very excited about our 2011 season because we are debuting a couple of brand new flavors. All we are going to say about it right now are that our favorite colors red and green may be involved. Keep your eyes peeled for our fresh new varieties that will be hitting the vans shortly.
At a cafe near you?
If you know of a cafe that might be interested in having Eva Sweet Liege waffles on the menu, by all means, let them know about us! We are happy to provide lovely little balls of dough to cafe's that want to take up waffling as their newest hobby. If this is you, or a cafe owner that you know, contact us and we will talk waffles.
