We went to Las Tortas, a little restaurant that sells gourmet mexican sandwiches (on Cambie and 18th). I loved it, it has a cute atmosphere, though not much room to sit and it’s definitely a fast food kind of place, but the food was amazing. I thought their ordering system was neat too, you check off what you want on a brown paper bag (see pic below), write your name on it and when your food is ready it gets put in that bag and you’re on your way! Kind of a fool proof method, and gets the customer involved, pretty clever actually. This one definitely makes my list of recommendations.
restaurants in Vancouver
While walking in our neighbourhood, we noticed a new restaurant and got super excited! In Vancouver a good new place to eat within walking distance is awesome, and we’re lucky to live near 4th ave, but being a foodie means options are important, so off we went to try Chewies Steam and Oyster Bar. Their full website isn’t up yet, and I found a spelling error, but I’m gonna let it slide because the service and the food was the best I’ve had in a really long time! I know I say that a lot because I’m in the business of praising versus bashing, but seriously it was SOOOO good. We sat at the bar facing the kitchen, so we got a great view of the chefs preparing all the amazing dishes.
I wanted to try a classic creole dish, jambalaya.
These delicious little treats are just fancy doughnuts called beignets, served with a chicory coffee sauce and heavily dusted with icing sugar! Hot deep fried bread? Yes, please!
