Yolk's Breakfast (Part 2)

(Original Review -- December 2013)

Since I enjoyed Yolk's Breakfast last year in Canada, I returned to their food truck on my latest BC trip in late November. I went to their second food truck, a larger white truck in downtown (near Burrard and W Pender). Just to confirm, their light blue cart is still parked by the train station (at Dunsmuir and Beatty).
