The tour was a good mix of history and fusion food. She brought us to the new boutique restaurants around the neighborhood that showcased the growing trendiness and gentrification of the area.
Along the way, she provided tidbits of local history. The menu and drinks were carefully planned so we didn’t find ourselves eating the same type of food at each place. It was interesting though to witness some of the tourists ‘bravely’ trying out the dishes. As Vancouverites, I think we take it for granted the amazing variety of cuisines in this city. Below is a sampling of the many innovative drinks and bites.
What I thought was cool was the restaurant owners also acted as hosts and would come by to chit chat with the group.
Overall, it was a fun (and funny) night of meeting new people, drinking excellent cocktails, and enjoying new eats. Thanks Mel!
