The GOODS from East of Main Cafe

Vancouver, BC | East of Main Cafe has launched a new menu for spring created by consulting chef, Tina Fineza.

The new menu includes more tapas dishes and share plates, is intense with bright Mediterranean spices and focuses on ethically produced ingredients. Dishes include Lamb Tagine, Eggplant Moussaka, Seared Rare Albacore Tuna, Coffee & Pomegranate Cauliflower and Chickpea Kale Salad. The lunch menu has also been updated with a variety of fresh salads and wraps to reflect the Mediterranean theme. Check out the new menu here and learn more about East of Main after the jump
