Follow Me Foodie to Crave – Dine Out in Burnaby Heights!
The 2nd Annual Crave: Dine Out in Burnaby Heights April 23-25! Enter to win $50!
I’ve very happy to announce that Crave the Heights is back for another year! I supported the event last year and was pleased to discover Take Sushi and Chad Thai. If you’ve never explored the historic Burnaby Heights in North Burnaby, than maybe this will give you incentive.
Crave the Heights is Tuesday, April 23 to Thursday, April 25 (that’s only 3 days) so pick your restaurants and make reservations. With very affordable 3 course set menus at $15, $20 and $25, restaurants are bound to book up. I have my opinions on Dine Out events, but at prices like this it’ll be hard to argue value.
The neighbourhood is full of mom and pop eateries, ethnic restaurants and family friendly options. Just as I mentioned last year, I encourage you to venture out of your regular dining routine and explore a new area. You just might find something that’s even better than the place you frequent. You never know, until you try.
Participating restaurants this year include Thai, Indian, Vietnamese (see my visit to Broken Rice), Italian, Greek (see my visit to Sfinaki Taverna), Japanese and good old BBQ and burgers. Adding to the list are two new dessert cafes: Glenburn Soda Fountain & Confectionery (a throw back candy shop with vintage candies, malts and floats), and Chez Christophe Chocolaterie Patisserie (opened by previous Pastry Chef at award winning fine dining restaurant Cin Cin Ristorante in downtown Vancouver). See all participating restaurants and menus here.
