Oh Canada!

Although July 1 falls on a Tuesday this year, Vancouver hasn’t held back in the slightest for their to Canada Day celebrations. In additional to the annual parade and fireworks display, there are a whole flurry of patriotic events where you can proudly sport your red and white. Whether you’re looking to join the crowds […]

Sake: Cold or Hot, Sip or Shot?

I’ve actually tasted the sake from Artisan Sake Maker before. On more than one occasion, in more than one Japanese izakaya bar. I even knew it came from Granville Island and, yah, I thought that was cool. But, their bottles of Osake sit unsuspectingly amongst many sakes behind the bar, so it’s hard to say […]

Meat Your Match at Oyama Sausage Company

There’s something very refined about ordering a charcuterie platter at a restaurant. It’s largely satisfying to look upon a beautiful spread of cured meats and to taste each and every one with the sophistication they deserve. The best charcuterie platters are served with a selection of cheese and bread pairings, and sometimes, if you’re lucky, […]

The Best Fish and Chips are on Granville Island

Our signature red Vancouver Foodie Tour t-shirts would look like little dots leading clusters of people from Edible Canada to the Granville Island Public Market. From a bird’s-eye-view, the pedestrian traffic in and around the Granville Island Public Market would look similar to bees around a […]

Though we’re blessed with things to do in Vancouver, from outdoor festivals to fireworks competitions, filling […]

This Summer, Everything Will Be Different

The spirit of summer is in the air – I’ll go right out and say it. The hustle and bustle isn’t just within the Granville Island Public Market, but spans from Bridges Restaurant, past Edible Canada, to the eastern shores at the Granville Island Hotel. Whether you’re joining us for our Granville Island Market Tour […]

Mother’s Day Gift Guide

A few years back, longer than I’d like to admit ago, I had the opportunity to dine at Iron Chef Morimoto’s restaurant in New York. I count the night as one of the most memorable dining experiences that I’ve ever had. Yet, as unforgettable as tofu cheesecake can be, the evening is ultimately etched in […]

What is peanut butter without jelly?
