There are many excellent restaurants that go unnoticed or fly under the radar. Here are a few of my favourite mom-and-pop restaurants that have been around for years. They are rarely talked about and rely on word of mouth, but are key contributors to Vancouver’s diverse food scene.
It was named #1 Best New Restaurant in Canada by EnRoute Magazine. It is a farm to table Euro-Canadian bistro inspired by seasonal and mostly local ingredients. The concepts and techniques are European and the food is presented unpretentiously. A must try in Toronto.
Yvonne Paczek is the wife with a passion for cooking and her husband Robert Hubicki is the supportive husband with the persistence to make things perfect. Together they own and operate Old Country Pierogi, Vancouver’s only Polish food truck.
