The GOODS from Ubuntu Canteen
Vancouver, BC | Chef David Gunawan’s organic-forward Fraserhood eatery Ubuntu Canteen invites friends, family and neighbours of all ages to join in for a Backyard Community BBQ on Sunday, July 14 from 3 to 9 p.m.
While local DJs provide the perfect summer soundtrack, Gunawan and his Ubuntu team will stoke the coals and serve up a delicious, locally-procured barbecue menu. Guests can enjoy plates such as Tamworth and Berkshire Pulled Pork Sandwich (slaw and baked beans), K & M Farms Smoked Chicken Salad (mac and cheese), Cumin-Smoked Stillmeadow Farm Lamb (flatbread, harissa, cucumber and yogurt salad), or Grilled Summer Squash (strawberry salsa, basil and parmesan).
Pints of local craft beer and non-alcoholic refreshments such as rhubarb lavender lemonade, ginger beer and kombucha will also be on offer, as well as a variety of wines from A Sunday in August and seasonally inspired, housemade cocktails.

ABOUT UBUNTU CANTEEN | Located in the heart of Vancouver’s burgeoning Fraserhood district, Ubuntu Canteen is the latest project for David Gunawan, the locavore-focused chef behind such notable and award-winning Vancouver restaurants as Farmer’s Apprentice and Grapes & Soda. Deriving its name from a Zulu word meaning ‘compassion’ and ‘humanity’, Ubuntu Canteen is a conscious and future-focused restaurant, bakery and coffee shop that provides a space where friends and families of all ages can gather together to break bread, share stories and build a strong sense of community. By day, Ubuntu offers a bakery that prepares organic pastries, fresh sourdough loaves and lighter fare comprising ingredients grown by its family network of local farmers and a full-service espresso bar using locally roasted, ethically sourced beans. By night, Ubuntu dims the lights, plays records and serves up a variety of approachable-yet-elevated dishes and fresh nightly features such as house-made pasta, rotisserie chicken and local seafood paired with house-made cocktails, biodynamic and natural wine and a rotating selection of some of BC’s best craft beer.
