Secret Food Tours Vancouver
It is no secret that I love food, and what better way to explore a city then through its food.
Secret Food Tours organize food and drink tours all around the world. We booked a food tour in the Gastown district of Vancouver.
We met our guide Austin at 11 am sharp in downtown Vancouver. He immediately showed that he knows a lot about Vancouver and its history. Upon entering Gastown, you immediately see that this atmospheric part of town is the place to be for good food.
Vancouver has a big sushi culture, so it doesn’t come as a surprise that the first stop is a sushi restaurant. Here we tried 2 rolls: the local Gastown roll and a BC roll. A delicious start of the tour.
The second stop was for some poutine. Their twist on the national dish is using pulled pork. The result is a heavy but delicious dish. Loved the slight sweetness of the pork combined with the salty cheese.
Next, we went to a vegan restaurant. Here they proof that vegan food doesn’t have to be boring. We had some oyster mushroom kalamari and sweet-chili cauliflower. Very inventive and delicious.
Before dessert, we enjoyed some maple chocolate.
Dessert was soft serve ice cream. It was a hard choice, but we ended up eating a Salty Himalayan: Original Peak sprinkled with pink Himalayan salt and maple syrup. For me, it was a little bit too sweet (too much maple syrup).
The Secret Food Tour in Vancouver was the perfect way to explore historic Gastown. We learned a lot about the history and had delicious food: the perfect combination.
This post is the result of a nice collaboration with Secret Food Tours. My opinion is however still my own.
