Hawkers Mercado is the pop-up food market at the new McArthur Glen Designer Outlet Centre at YVR. An offshoot of the popular Hawker’s Market events, Hawkers Mercado brings unique dining options to the Outlet Centre until Labour Day.
On our last visit we decided to have a bite at Eat Naaco, the first Vancouver effort from the Calgary Food Truck. Eat Naaco combines Indian and Mexican cuisine using quality, local ingredients. This pop-up creates three Naan + Taco combinations for their Hawkers Mercado menu; Bengali Frijoles (vegetarian), Chicken Tinga Marsala, Beef Vindarojo. The soft warm naan lends itself well to the tender meat fillings and fresh, crispy veggie toppings.
Eat Naaco is at Hawkers Market until Labour Day but plans to open its first free standing Vancouver location.
Watch for it possibly in Gastown, later this autumn.
