Fresh Flavours

West Coast Salty Buns

West Coast Salty Buns is a BBQ Mexican food truck that came to be through a passion for smoked meat cooked low and slow, hearty and fresh flavours and a 1976 Winnebago named Wild Wanda.

We smoke all our meats on our 18 foot smoker that is continuously fed with local dry alder for up to 14 hours. Usually this process also involves Chef Brandon, owner and operator enjoying the sounds of the fire popping and the waves crashing with a bourbon or beer in hand.

We pride ourselves on the quality of ingredients we use, with an emphasis on sourcing wild, local seafood, Vancouver Island produce and BC free range or organic meats.

The story of West Coast Salty Buns starts with Chef Brandon’s passion for pairing creative flavours with low and slow cooked meats. Chef Brandon’s love of smoked meat started young, back on his grandparents farm in Cedar where he learned how to roast and smoke whole hogs with his grandfather.

Chef Brandon then went on to become Executive Chef at some of BC and Alberta’s most recognized and prestigious heli-ski and fishing lodges, but the West Coast of Vancouver Island was always calling him home. West Coast Salty Buns is the culmination of Chef Brandon’s passion and culinary history together to bring his love of great food and ingredients to Ucluelet where he lives with his wife April and their three dogs, Thumper, Theo & Flo.

Hubby just brought home our first yummy lunch from Salty Buns. We had a Bite, a Bowl and a Burrito and it is way more than 2 people can eat in one sitting. We are very impressed with the quality of ingredients and the amazing flavours. We will be back!

We ordered the flo and pollo burritos. We were amazed. They were HUGE, super yummy, amazing ingredients, and a great price! Can't wait to try out the rest of the menu 👍😀

I had the Side Stripe Bacos (steamed buns) are AMAZING! Light fluffy bun packed full of flavour with fresh ingredients that hit your taste buds and won’t disappoint! Also had the West Coast Sunday and added the smoked chicken which was tender and flavourful meat that complemented this dish perfectly to round out the meal. Make sure to go hungry as it’s well worth the trip.

I was impressed with the upbeat and West Coast appeal of the truck, so I had to stop and try the food. It’s a lovely menu with Mexican influence. I ordered the West Coast Sunday Bites with the smoked chicken and it’s definitely enough for a meal. It was love at first bite. I also ordered the Side Stripe Bacos, and they did not disappoint. The Chef sources the seafood locally and smokes the fish/meat himself.
