My Photos from Tasting Plates Vancouver Summer Edition

Vancouver Foodster Tasting Plates card

Last week was Vancouver Foodster‘s 2nd Tasting Plates event in Vancouver. The first one was held downtown in February. This one was primarily on Main Street, which is gaining more restaurants and cafes. We were lucky to have a nice, not rainy, day to walk about. My partner in crime this evening was Dianne Chow @diannechow.

Dianne and I visited the following restaurants and cafes:

  • Salt Spring Coffee
  • Rocky Mountain Flatbread Co
  • Trafiq Café & Bakery
  • Bob Likes Thai Food
  • mygoodness! gluten & wheat free kitchen
  • Triple O’s on the Go
  • Sal y Limon
  • Fray

Enjoy our tasting trip through my photos.

Trafiq Café & Bakery

Rocky Mountain Flatbread Co

Bob Likes Thai Food – Tuna Chili Dip, Rice ball with red curry paste, papaya salad and more.

Salt Spring Coffee – spiced orange mocha

Fray – Portobello Fries, Rosemary-Infused Potato / Taro Chips, Polenta Salad and Pork Belly Sandwich

Sal y Limon – making a Taco pollo pibil

Triple O’s on the Go – Mac & Cheese slider and Butterfinger milk shake enjoyed (but not shown)

mygoodness! gluten & wheat free kitchen – savory and sweet tarts

Overall my favourite restaurant sampling of the evening was the Sal y Limon Taco pollo pibil.  I like the texture of the corn tortilla, plus you could pick which salsa/sauce you wanted to top on your chicken.  The favourite drink is a toss up between the Butterfinger milk shake and the spiced orange mocha.  Overall all the places had something tasty to try. The full menu that evening for each restaurant are at this link.
