DinnerD Roti Shak
New Westminster’s D Roti Shak is among a small handful of Caribbean restaurants in the Metro Vancouver area. This Trinidadian outfit serves up uniquely West Indian dishes less familiar to the West Coast including such island treats as Doubles, Phulourie and their namesake dish: the Roti.
99 Bottles33 Acres of Life
Vancouver’s own 33 Acres Brewing pays homage to the West Coast with the eponymous 33 Acres of Life, a hybrid of lager and ale brewed in the Californian Common style. This deeply amber brew balances a distinct fruitiness with malty finish. At 4.8% ABV the lightness of the beer belies the flavour it packs.
LunchSal Y Limon
Sal Y Limon introduces some Mexican flavour to East Vancouver’s Mount Pleasant neighbourhood, offering an assortment of familiar stand-bys like tacos, burritos, sopes, quesadillas and tortas. They take over the space once occupied by the Gold Mills Filipino restaurant, nestled snuggly within Kingsway’s awkwardly positioned strip mall.
