Follow Me Foodie to Crave – Dine Out in Burnaby Heights!
The 3rd Annual Crave: Dine Out in Burnaby Heights is April 22-24.
Enter to win $100 gift certificate + a chocolate Easter ggg masterpiece!
*Blink* Really? $15 price fixe menus? Blast from the past. I feel like I’m dining in the early 2000’s. It seems like inflation has happened everywhere except for here, and I don’t think any diner will complain about that.
The 3rd Annual Crave in Burnaby Heights is April 22-24. The 3 day event features 3 course set menus at $15, $20 and $25. I have my opinions on Dine Out events (see my do’s and don’ts), but at prices like these it’ll be hard to argue value.
I’ve been supporting this event since the first year and it’s like The Little Engine That Could. It’s been slowly growing every year and I wish there was more enthusiasm for the area. It often gets overlooked which is unfortunate because it has some hidden gems.
If you’ve never explored this historic area of North Burnaby, here is your reason to. It’s full of long standing family run eateries, ethnic restaurants, and affordable family friendly places. It’s hard to get bored here even though it’s a rather small area with a quaint village feel.
Since Crave started I’ve been introduced to Take Sushi, Chad Thai, Broken Rice, and Sfinaki Taverna. All were very good choices and I’d recommend any of them for this year too.
Participating restaurants this year include:
Broken Rice Restaurant
Burgers Etc. BBQ House
Chad Thai Restaurant
Chez Christophe Chocolaterie Patisserie
Cristos Greek Taverna
Glenburn Soda Fountain & Confectionery
Kokoro Japanese Restaurant
L’Artista Ristorante Italiano
La Villetta Ristorante
Oui Paris Cafe Couture
Sfinaki Greek Taverna
So Crab So Good
Stan’s Pizza Joint & Bar
Follow Me Foodie’s Crave Contest!
On behalf of Burnaby Heights and Follow Me Foodie, we’re giving away a $100 gift certificate to a restaurant of your choice participating in Crave. Please see here for participating restaurants and their menus. The gift certificate does not have to be used during Crave.
On top of that I’m also giving away this extra large Easter egg hand crafted by one of Vancouver’s top pastry chefs and chocolatiers, Christophe, of Chez Christophe (value $125). This work of art is created with Carma Swiss milk chocolate, (a chocolate unique to Chez Christophe), and inside sits a golden egg filled with delicious surprises. It’s like “Kinder Surprise” for royalty.
You’ll want to crack it open, but because it’s so pretty I don’t know if you’ll want to… on second thought, you’ll want to!
Note: The gift certificate will be mailed, but the Easter egg must be picked up at Chez Christophe if you win.
Enter to win:
Grand prize: $100 gift certificate to dine out in Burnaby Heights and Chez Christophe’s Chocolate Easter Egg masterpiece.
