Where does Chef Taryn Eat? Party Deux
Fassil Ethiopian Restaurant
5736 E Broadway, Vancouver
I love platters of mixed veggies and meat, I love eating with my hands, and I love bread… sour bread at that! (Injera Bread). I have a bit of a habit of just letting the host decide what I am going to eat at Fassil, and so far it has always been delicious. I’ve been told that it is as close as we can get to authentic ethiopian cuisine in Vancouver.
Don’t forget to try some of their homemade honey wine, it’s an experience.
3369 Cambie Street, Vancouver, – Visit Site
A great french bistro, from the excellent creators of Parkside Restaurant and La Buca. Great wine list, great atmosphere, reserve early! Enjoy a nice pastis before the meal… of course I order the steak frites and house terrine.
I enjoy the ambiance as if I could be in France, in a bistro, seats 30 max. A small escape from the chaos that is Cambie Street.
Tip: There is free parking at the back of the restaurant.
Budapest Restaurant & Pastry Shop
Update: Sadly the Budapest is now closed. Where can we get our schnitzel fix?
Any platter with 3 types of snitzel (chicken, lamb, and beef), hungarian sausage, saurkraught, pickles, braised cabbage, beets and cabbage rolls are a sure winner. Don’t forget to order the traditional Hungarian fried bread (langos).Great deal, and great meal. If you dare have a bottle of “bulls blood” Hungarian wine.
Salt Tasting Room Salt Tasting Room
45 Blood Alley, Gastown, Vancouver, BC – Visit Site
If you haven’t heard of Salt yet, please come out from under that rock. From the creators of the Irish Heather, Shebeen and New addition Salty Tongue. Enjoy selective trio of condiments, cured meats and cheeses along with your wine. They support a growing number of local purveyors of fine meats, cheeses and produce. Decent wine list, and great atmosphere, enjoy blood alley after a “few”.
