Victoria, British Columbia, is the home to something very special – Canada’s very first Aboriginal food truck: The Songhees Seafood and Steam.

In 2014 when Songhees Nation Chief Ron Sam sat down with Clipper Founder and Chair Merideth Tall, a powerful vision was born. The partners shared the same desire to increase exposure to Victoria’s deep roots in Songhees culture.

With food, culture and community serving as the building blocks – with a focus on “really, really good food,” the Songhees Seafood and Steam food truck was born.

The First Nations-styled menu was created by former Marriott Inner Harbour executive chef David Roger, in collaboration with Songhees Nation community members.

From salmon and bison burgers to specialty salads and gluten-free bannock, Chef David Roger has carefully crafted a deeply authentic menu.
