This city is synonymous with food and good restaurants. People visit just to eat and it is truly a treat to be in San Francisco. It is home to some of America’s “Best Restaurants” and my main purpose for this trip was to judge Cathay Pacific’s Noodles of Asia contest, but I couldn’t help but to extend my stay…
$10 or less
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.
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. Enter to win $50 to dine out in the historic Burnaby Heights!
The area consists of long time businesses and the market is full of iconic institutions selling meats, cheese, seafood, spices and produce. It would be a shame to visit Toronto and miss out on this since the city prides itself on diversity. Here is my self guided foodie tour of Kensington Market.
So why was I eating gelato in the winter? Well because I love it that much, and because there was a special flavour unique to this neighbourhood cafe. I had recommendations to try Boreal Gelato, but specifically for their Boreal Balsam gelato, which is unique to Canada and the shop.
The menu might not look as exciting or creative as some of the other food trucks, but give it a chance. It is typical Asian comfort food and their potions are enough for two. All sauces and marinades are made from scratch and it is one of the most budget friendly food trucks offering great value in Vancouver.
