Follow Me Foodie to Surrey Restaurant Week!
The 1st Annual Surrey Restaurant Week May 24 – June 2! Enter to win $100!
Bet you didn’t see that one coming! I didn’t, but I’m happy to. I flip flop with these “Dine Out” events because often I find they don’t represent the restaurant on a regular night, but I do like the fact that it gives people incentive to support the restaurant industry.
I have a soft spot for restaurants in the suburbs because they get overlooked. I’ve found some hidden gems and excellent restaurants and some of my favourite places for Japanese, Indian and Latin food is in fact in the suburbs. Downtown Vancouver has excellent eats, but the ethnic eateries in the suburbs are fantastic to explore.
Surrey Restaurant Week is May 24 to June 2 (10 days) and is presented by BC Restaurant and Foodservices Association (BCRFA) and Tourism Surrey. Restaurants are offering 3 course set menus at $20, $30 and $40.
Over 40 restaurants in the Guildford, Whalley & Surrey City Centre, Fleetwood, Newton, South Surrey, and Cloverdale neighbourhoods will be participating and the dining options are diverse.
I took a look at the participating restaurants and I was ecstatic to see Tokachi (amazing gomaae and sashimi), Taste of Punjab, and McJac’s Roadhouse Grille (get a sourdough loaf to go) participating. Those are some local favs in Surrey, and I hope this gives you incentive to make the trip out and visit them. If you’re already in the neighbourhood, than I’m jealous. Those restaurants can rival restaurants in Metro Vancouver. I’m also really curious about Pachamami Sabor Latino and Morgans Restaurant & Wine Bar as well as a few others. See the full list of participating restaurants and menus here.

really excited to see this since I just moved to Surrey a few month ago. I would really like to try fresh restaurant and lounge.
I’d like to try Sabai Thai or Nando’s please! Thanks for the contest 🙂
I’d like to try Moxie’s Grill & Bar, Morgans Restaurant and Wine Bar, or Fresh Restaurant.
Fresh Restaurant looks well so fresh! 🙂 I love that they support local growers. Thanks for the chance to dine somewhere new.
Taste of Punjab! I live right across from the restaurant, and yet, I’ve never had the chance to visit it. This would be the perfect opportunity. 🙂
Taste of Punjab sounds different for sure!
Nando’s Flame-Chicken is a favourite of mine
Top 3 restaurants I’d love to try are: Tokashi, Taste of Punjab and Fresh!!
I would like to try Taste of Punjab!
I like to try Tokachi Japanese Restaurant, Bozzini’s Restaurant and Sabatino’s Trattoria & Bar.
Tokachi sounds interesting.
Seahorse Grill sounds like the restaurant for me! You can never go wrong with Japanese either (Tawara Japanese Restaurant)!
I’ve never tried Japanese food in Surrey before and to be honest, have never thought to with the plethora of Japanese options in Vancouver and Burnaby, so I’d love to try Tokashi! Thanks for the recommendation!
I’d use it at Taste of Punjab – one of my favourite Indian restaurants in Surrey
