Vancouver Lunch Spots
Yes we eat out a fair bit. And while it looks like on social media that we may always be together, we actually find a separate place to work/ eat most days. Sometimes (and almost always on Fridays) this also involved lunch. Now that we are back in the big city the options are endless. So this series is a round up of our favourite, unique and very diverse lunch spots in Vancouver.
My Pick of the Week – Jeff
The Dime Brewhouse (everything $4.95) – 1017 Granville Street
I think this makes 8 out of 9 weeks that I found a place that Tara will never set foot in. The Dime on Granville had a sign out advertising everything $4.95. Good enough for me! I had the fried egg sandwich with french fries (the other option is house greens for a side). The sandwich was OK, but the bun was far too large and took away from the egg flavour. The maple bacon was a nice addition but further took away from the egg. Overall this was not as good as some of the cheap Friday lunches I have had in this blog series. I’d give this a 3 out of 10 and would likely go back to The Famous Warehouse, Speakeasy or the Fountainhead Pub before returning to this place again. However I was in and out the door for $8.95 (my pint of beer was only $4).
My Pick of the Week – Tara
Jusu Bar Yaletwon – 518 Davie Street
My pic this week was a non-lunch, lunch. Since we have been eating out so much lately I went for a juice lunch. The apartment that we rented from May to September has commercial spaces on the main floor and one of them just happens to be Jusu Bar. Jusu is a Victoria based company that offers cold pressed juice, smoothies & superfood shots. It took me 8 weeks to try it but I read up on all of the juice options online and their benefits and bought two. ‘Green Machine’ – Apple, Cucumber, Ginger, Kale, Lemon, Parsley, Spinach and ‘The Classic‘ – Apple, Beet, Carrot, Celery, Ginger, Lemon, Romaine ($10 each for 435ml). I drank half of each and both were tasty (and this is purely my opinion of course, as I know LOTS of people who would not like them). JUSU juice is raw and highly perishable so I finished them the next day. The healthy lunch that gave me a boost when I needed it and did not feel like eating.
