The Dishes is a new Scout column that asks Vancouverites to walk us through a map of their ideal day and night on the town. We’re talking breakfast, lunch, happy hour, dinner and late night cocktails. Tax and tip included.
Good morning! What’s for breakfast?
My go-to weekend spot is Farmer’s Apprentice. The menu is constantly changing, but is always consistent. I always start with the fresh breads and house made jam.
Where should we meet for coffee/tea?
Beaucoup Bakery makes the absolute best London Fog and chocolate croissant in the city. I always suggest meeting there before anywhere else.
Now we’re hungry again. What’s for lunch?
I’m a big fan of any and all things ramen. My usual spot is Danbo on 4th. The Miso Rekka Ramen is dynamite.
Who has you figured out at Happy Hour?
I’m typically working during happy hour, so I’d say Royal Dinette. Where else in the city can you get a $6 Daiquiri?
What’s for dinner?
You can never go wrong with Bao Bei. I dream about the sticky rice cakes and marinated eggplant. And any place that has a pina colada on their menu is alright by me!
What’s for dessert?
Donuts! All of the donuts! Either the sourdoughnut at 49th Parallel or the Earl Grey donut at Cartems.
Where are you taking us for late night cocktails?
Grapes & Soda. Satoshi is a wizard. There’s always a unique daily cocktail that’s super tasty, or go for something off the menu and you won’t be disappointed.
