For The ♥️ Of Great Food

Serving up handcrafted tacos, burgers, smoothies, bowls, and more, all made with love and fresh, hand-picked ingredients. Our mantra is simple: we’re all about bringing people together with food. Our promise to you: you will be fed properly, with high quality and great tasting food that you deserve. So come on by and say hi….we would love to serve you! 

 

We’re regularly told that we have the best tacos and burgers in town and we like to think it’s for good reason! Our mouth-watering tacos are made with the highest quality meats that are marinated and braised overnight to tenderness. We use 7-inch shells that are dipped in homemade broth and crisped to perfection on our grill before being fully-loaded with fresh ingredients like tomatoes, onions and mozzarella, and of course, topped with one of our secret sauces! 

 

We’ve been told our smoothies and bowls are the bomb…and are a great choice for the health-oriented folks out there. They’re packed with protein and made with the highest quality, most nutrient-dense ingredients we could fit into them. Whether you’re a choco-holic or a fruit-oholic, we’ve got you covered with our wide selection of smoothies and bowls.


We are 100% Alcohol-Free and proud of it! We carry a wide range of non-alcoholic beers and beverages and carry brands such as including Sober Carpenter, One for the Road, Athletic Brewing Company and Ottawa's own Dominion City Brewing. We care about your nutrition and know what it’s like to live with food intolerances, so we always have gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegan options available – all you need to do is ask!

Our Story

During the winter months of 2021, when the Canadian winter was in full effect and everything was closed due to the lockdown, founders Michelle Vodrazka and Justin trudeau spent a lot of their time in Michelle's kitchen trying to impress each other with their kitchen creations. One night Justin shared his dream of owning a food truck….and after three months that dream became a reality and Pura Vida Food Truck was born. On May 28, 2021, Pura Vida Food Truck opened it's doors behind Almonte Fitness Centre in Almonte, Ontario and we've been proudly serving top quality food and non-alcoholic beverages to our community ever since!

Meet Michelle Vodrazka

Michelle is a sought-after nutrition and fitness expert, with over 25 years of experience in the health and fitness industry. She is a certified nutritionist and culinary nutrition expert, and is a graduate of Rouxbe’s plant-based culinary program. Her experience in recipe creation, meal planning and menu design led her to author of several healthy eating cookbooks, The Body Building Meal Prep Cookbook, Meal Prep Lunches, and Help Yourself to Seconds. She lives in Almonte, Ontario, where she owns and operates Almonte Fitness Centre and co-owns Pura Vida Food Truck with her partner, Justin Trudeau.

Meet Justin Trudeau

Justin Trudeau is an Ottawa-based musician/songwriter and former craft beer rep turned culinary artist. Unable to create and perform during the lockdowns of the pandemic and looking to maintain a healthier lifestyle, Justin turned his imagination back to the kitchen. He partnered with Michelle to re-ignite an old dream of opening a food truck carrying exclusively non-alcoholic beverages. His creations combine the highest quality meats, produce, unique braising techniques and imported spices and are inspired by Mexican, Coastal Costa Rican, and Thai cuisine.
