DINER: Bacon-Fetishist Food Cart Opening “Pig & Mortar” On West 6th Ave This Winter

November 20, 2012.

by Andrew Morrison | I love Volkswagen Westfalias and pork, so when street food vendor Pig On The Street came along and combined the two, I was understandably pretty stoked.

I was most recently sold on their awesomeness (a BLT wrap) in August, back when they were one of the many food trucks ensconced in the parking lot behind The Waldorf on the weekends. In that glorious van of theirs (I’ve had two), they were hard to miss. It’s therefore my pleasure to share the news that they are opening a brick and mortar joint (a la Japadog, Tacofino) this winter called Pig & Mortar. Because of course.

Owners Krissy Seymour and Mark Cothey recently secured the Todd’s Cafe spot at 1529 West 6th between Fir and Granville. The couple from Cornwall see Pig & Mortar as a 30 seater that is casual, British-styled and “extremely porky”. “We aren’t top chefs,” admits Seymour. “We are pretty basic but we want to create an environment that people can feel at home and just enjoy some fantastic beers, some decent grub made from great local produce and meat and just stay true to our Cornish ways.” Before Christmas, we can expect greatest hits from the food truck, quality pub grub at both lunch and dinner, good beers, some wines on tap from Vancouver Urban Winery, and maybe even some big hog roasts on Sundays.

Looking ahead summertime bonus: 14 seat patio.
