Bringing a much needed reinvigoration to Granville Island, Popina has opened to the masses recently. They’re serving up West Coast flavours (read: seafood) but in a fast food/take out format to be easily accessible to tourists and Vancouverites alike.
Nathalie recently visited to have a quick bite! She had the Grass Fed BC Beef Cheeseburger ($12) and the Smoked Wild Salmon and Quinoa salad ($15).
The BC Beef Cheeseburger is packed with the essentials: lettuce, tomato, pickle, cheese all in a toasted bun with a BC beef patty. The patty is juicy and peppery – mixed with the crunch from the lettuce and pickle, it’s everything you’d want in a cheeseburger.
The Smoked Wild Salmon and Quinoa salad is a healthy dish on the menu – but still very flavourful. The quinoa gave this salad some weight to it and the salad dressing complimented the smoked wild salmon.
I definitely will have to come back and try some of the classics on the menu!
