When I moved to Vancouver from Toronto a few months ago with one of my best friends, we had three #lifegoals in mind: go skiing on a legit west coast mountain, make some friends other than each other (how do you make friends as an adult?) and find our new favourite restos in the city. So, to help in our search for Vancity foodie heaven, we decided to turn to the pros. So, locals, visitors: here are the best culinary tours in Van.
Off The Eaten Track (Railtown Urban Eats Culinary Tour)
Off The Eaten Track takes foodies on tours into neighbourhoods that aren’t as touristy, such as Railtown, in Vancouver’s east end. We indulged on the grilled cheese and tomato soup at the HAVE Café© (a culinary school that provides training and job opportunities to individuals who experience barriers to employment) and the shaker salad and brie-filled meatball (voted best meatball in Vancouver!) at the Uncommon Café©. We also sampled beer and wine at Postmark Brewing (try the golden, citrus IPA) and a chicken salad and focaccia (THAT FOCACCIA THOUGH!) at Railtown Café©. We ended on something sweet (apple spice cake) at Cadeaux Bakery. Excuse me, as I go enter a food coma.
