I love the DineOut Vancouver event, every year it seems to get better. This year is even better     because they’ve expanded to some taste tours and cooking lessons. The menus just launched today and  I’d like to share my picks for the $18 menus! Note that the links will take you directly to their respective  dine out menu!




Pacific Institute of Culinary Arts – I’ve heard a lot of good things about them and this will be one I’m going to check out this year!

Pink Elephant Thai – I recommend getting Floating Market!! Delicious deep fried spinach. They also have their Matsaman Curry on the menu – which is a good meal. Try their Thai Iced Tea too!

The Reef – A great Caribbean restaurant. I love their Dominica Beef and Kola Champagne (ie Jamaican Cream Soda)! On the menu, the plantain chips and soup sound fantastic.

Rocky Mountain Flatbread Co. I went here last year for dineout and I loved it. The flatbreads are so good. The OceanWise one is my favourite – it is the yummiest flatbread I’ve had in town. You can check out my review here. Be warned- the Kits location is family orientated – so if you’re looking for a quiet place to take your date, you might want to go elsewhere! There’s a new location on Main street as well.

Check out more Dine Out Menus here. Tomorrow,I’ll share my recommendations for the $28 menu!

Which restaurants are you looking forward to trying this year? Do you have any good recommendations for me? Let me know!
