"Street Certified Gourmet Food"


I have seen this truck driving by many times but I finally caught it stationary getting its propane tanks filled. The explosion of colours and the assortment of signs make it hard to miss and if you enlarge and look closely at the hood you will see a frying pan with lifter and a plate attached to it! I wonder what 'street certified' means?

The word propane and explosion were very close together and I was worried for a second. lol Street Certified Gourmet Food is another worrisome. Just kidding. Nice shot. =)

There are so many things to see in this shot!
I like the messy design, it is very fun, especially the frying pan!

Those signs bombard the senses! I guess the theory is that you stop and try to work them out! Incredible!

Cool image!

You wouldn't forget about this ad, that's for sure. I'm guessing he made up that title "Street Certified" -- probably means his customers like it!

What set-up he has! If you are not hungry, you can read his signs instead.

What a wonderful post. I love this kind of thing. I suppose the truck goes around to construction sites, etc., to sell its wares. And it offers "Street Certified Gourmet Food" too!

Well done RedPat!

Very funny! It reminds me of Honest Ed's on wheels. :)

The truck isn't very attractive which means the food is probably excellent. 'Chunky fried potatoes'? Sounds dangerously yummy.

Deb said...

Great looking van, wonder if it plays a catchy tune like ice cream vans do? Wouldn't be suprised, it has everything else!

Lesley said...

So, I take it chunky potato fries are his specialty?!! Can't say I ever thought of them as being 'gourmet', but maybe I should give these a try before I pass judgement.

Can't miss him! I'll bet the laborers love to see his truck coming around.

Big time advertising on this truck. Good catch, interesting.

Jack said...

Great colorful truck and photo. But, no, I don't think I will be eating there . . .

EG Wow said...

There's so much writing on that truck that it's a bit confusing!

VioletSky said...

Well, this one certainly wouldn't be mistaken for one of those Toronto a la carte trucks!

Kitty said...

ha. oh dear!
these trucks don't really serve many veggies beyond the potato wedges, though.
I hope you don't eat there!

This is funny Red, I don't think apart from the windscreen he's left any space uncovered on this vehicle. Bet he gets heaps of attention as he drives by.

He has a very extensive menu, that's for sure!

Gringo said...

Wouldn't quite fit on the narrow Norfolk roads Red Pat!

JM said...

You surely can't miss this one! :-)

Regarding your yesterday comment: the pieces are old but it's a modern installation.

Sharon said...

I'm wondering about "street certified" too!

Food trucks-- a 'sign' of the times, I do believe.

Alan said...

Shameless self-promotion. Love it!

I accept apparent this barter active by abounding times but I assuredly bent it anchored accepting its propane tanks filled
