Another winner from Okanagan Crush Pad A few weeks ago we dropped byEdible Canada at the Market(1596 Johnston St. 604-682-6681) for a post theatre, late night bite. (Somehow a trip to Chile in between derailed our good intentions to post about it sooner.) It’s also been a while since we wrote at length about Edible Canada but [...]

Forage Chef Chris Whittaker. Vancouver's greenest chef? Reinventing a legendary room is never easy but when the Listel Hotel decided to close long running O'Doul's, the move afforded no shortage of opportunities. In 10 days or so they'll pull the wraps off forage (1300 Robson St, 604-684-8461), a smaller and considerably more casual [...]

Minestrone: a steaming bowl of seasonally appropriate goodness, TP photo We’re always intrigued when a leading hotel decides to work with a celebrated restaurant–as opposed to running its own in-house operation. We watched with interest over the last couple of years the machinations surrounding the pop-ups at Opus Hotel, which were often entertaining [...]

Cozy and Tasty on The Drive: Tunisian Treats at Carthage Café

By | 2018-01-21T15:05:32+00:00 October 9th, 2012|Belly's Best Bites|

A warm and welcoming interior .... Updated, March 31, 2014.  I committed The inexcusable sin the other night, by arriving late for a reservation which in itself allowed too little time to dine properly before heading off to the York Theatre. In my mind I had thought it would be easy to order [...]
