The Taste of Yaletown is back and just as tasty as ever and we had the opportunity to check out a few of the featured locations and eat and drink our way to culinary heaven. Get ready to enjoy two full weeks of exceptional “Sharing and Pairing” from some of Yaletown’s best restaurants! Needless to say, you’re all in for a real treat.
5 West Oak
If you’re seeking a more upscale Taste of Yaletown experience, look no further than West Oak. This trendy dining space will make you feel like you’ve stepped into an eatery in the Meat Packing District of New York and the food – especially the roasted chicken (hands down our fav) – will leave your mouth-watering. Wash it down with one of the wines from their carefully curated wine list. Oh, and did we mention that their patio is heated?
4 Zend Conscious Lounge
No meat? No problem! Zend Conscious Lounge is 100% meat and dairy free and 100% delicious. Their TOY sampler menu this year includes items like Mini Burgers and Tacos, homemade Cashew Cheeses, and a Kale Caesar Salad we literally cannot get enough of. Make sure to try a Kava cocktail! Your insides will thank you.
3 Romers Burger Bar
If burgers are more of your thing, Romers does not disappoint. The Man’s Burger is a meat-lover’s dream and requires two hands. Finish of your tasting with warm mini donuts and wash it all down with one (or a flight) of their local craft beers! You’re welcome.
2 Hub Restaurant
Enjoy casual West Coast comfort cuisine with a flair guaranteed to satisfy anyone’s cravings at Hub Restaurant! Their menu hits all the right spots, delighting guests with sticky, fall-off-the-bone ribs, mini burgers that pack mega flavour, and their famous Pazookie – a giant, baked chocolate chip cookie topped with vanilla ice-cream. What dessert dreams are made of.
1 Lime & Moon Pie
Because every tour needs a sweet spot! At Lime and Moon Pie, you can satisfy all of your sweet or savoury cravings – without the guilt! Their pies are all organic and they carry many gluten-free and vegan options (celiacs and health addicts rejoice!) This year, the featured item is the Rockweek quiche, made using fresh, foraged ingredients from Bowen Island!
Taste of Yaletown kicks off October 13 and runs until October 27 with special tastings and pairings set at $25, $35, or $45. Every year, a donation is made in support of the Greater Vancouver Food Bank.
