Just got back from a fabulous long weekend in Vancouver with lots of great eats to report. Recommended bites and experiences:
Dinner at Vij's - pork belly spoons, halibut cheek starter special, lamb popsicles, gin and ginger-lemon. Fabulous meal. We got there around 6 and wait was around an hour and 45 minutes, while we enjoyed cocktails and snacks on the patio. Fantastic drinks after at West a few doors down.
Bar crawl in Gastown - IPA at Alibi, Tequila Martinez at Diamond, Scotch Egg and Esmerelda at Pourhouse, 2 different Best of BC Plates and Wine Pairings at Salt Tasting Room
Fish and Chips and Fish Tacones at Go Fish. Prepare for a long wait - took probably 45 minutes to get our food- but we enjoyed the sunshine and view. Worth the wait.
Poutine with pulled pork and IPA at Flying Pig
Granville Island Tasting Rooms - Liberty Distillery Bloody Mary, trio at Granville Island Brewing Co., trio at Artisan SakeMaker
Also at Granville Island Public Market - honey glazed at Lee's Donuts, salmon candy at The Salmon Shop
Non food recs:
False Creek Ferry to Granville Island
Walking around Stanley Park on the Seawall
All in all, LOVE Vancouver. Can't wait to go back.
