I was here with my mom a few weeks ago and ordered dragon meatballs, which were delicious even though it sounded weird. They were deep fried curry, beef and rice meatballs topped off with spicy mayo and some sort of tangy sauce as well. The food was super fresh and the service was good. My mom didn't care for the...

The Roaming Dragon catered a work event my company had. The food was fantastic. We had various sliders, rice bowls, tacos and other appetizers. I sampled most things and loved them all very good flavours and everything was super fresh. Definitely want to find the truck around town one of these days

Roaming Dragon appears to have some rave reviews from PNE goers - it itself boasts its "street cred" on its food cart too. My wife and I went to the fair at PNE recently, and decided to give it a try. As my title suggests, I think the food is a little over-priced, probably a result that it is food... More

The lemongrass chicken sub was delicious, the lychee basil lemonade was very mild flavors once it was all mixed together. Would definitely have this again. Roaming dragon is a great option when it comes to greasy food trucks out there!

In terms of food trucks the Roaming Dragon does serve good food. The major downfall is the portions are small in comparison to the price. Basically you are paying upwards of $11 for small canapes and appetizers. Short ribs and pork belly Asian tapas are good but since the portions are so small you are left craving for more food....

Food trucks are supposed to be the big thing in Vancouver these days... My wife had the sliders. Two very small 7cm square more-bun-than-filling creations for $5. I had the Asian fusion poutine. Fairly substantial size with the addition of spiced beef, cilantro, chili peppers & shredded cheese in addition to the fries & curds (no gravy) for $8. After... More

After hearing some good things about the famous cart, I decided to give it a run. Had the rice balls and the pork slider. The rice balls were nice awasd interesting, pork slider was salty and the bun had an aftertaste. The lemonade i nice, but no sign of basil. On the good side: service is fantastic.
