Must-Order Soup Dumplings and Wine Chicken at Long's Noodle House in Vancouver

Eating Asian Jay Friedman 5 comments

This Vancouver hole-in-the-wall is the kind of place where you look at everyone else's table, get tempted, then order whatever your neighbor is having. The two things you'll see at virtually every table are a steamer basket of xiao long bao (soup dumplings) and a ceramic crock of wine chicken. More

A Sandwich a Day: Porchetta at Meat & Bread in Vancouver

A Sandwich a Day Liz Clayton 2 comments

This deceptively tidy looking porchetta sandwich is on a just-right-chewy ciabatta. It looks like it's going to contain all its pork so politely but we all know it ends with more napkins than that. The overflow of pork chunks drizzled in mild salsa verde, just bright enough to cut the intensity of the fat, begins to spill forth rather quickly, a mix of fatty-gooey and liberally dosed super crispy-edge cracklin' bits.

A Sandwich a Day: Sandos at Miura Waffle Milk Bar in Vancouver

A Sandwich a Day Erin Jackson 4 comments

Miura Waffle Milk Bar in Vancouver is doing some very interesting things to waffles. The shop sells a variety of savory and sweet waffle "sandos" derived from "sandoitchi," a Japanese word for sandwich. The Garlic Chicken Waffle Sando is stuffed with juicy garlic-spiked chicken, red miso, cabbage slaw, and a drizzle of mayo. But the meat isn't sandwiched between the two waffles as you might expect; it's cooked directly into the batter. More

Tales of the Cocktail Takes the Show to Canada

Drinks Paul Clarke 1 comment

Last week the organizers and sponsors of Tales of the Cocktail brought this signature New Orleans event to Vancouver, B.C. How did the event function in another, less notoriously party-hearty city? Did it translate into Canadian? After spending several days in Vancouver for before-and-after celebrations, as well as for the main event on Monday, I can say with a little surprise that the answer is "mostly yes." More

Slice Adam Kuban 11 comments

Adam Lindsley of the blog This Is Pizza snapped this shot when he visited Marcello Pizzeria & Ristorante in Vancouver, British Columbia. More

Slice Adam Kuban 34 comments

I realize that I'm the guy who put Peeps on a pizza, so I don't have much room to talk, but ... poutine pizza? Really? If you feel like combining the iconic Canadian treat with our favorite cheesy delight, you can find it at Brado Pizza in Vancouver, British Columbia. Flickr member Foxtongue and her friends ordered the thing and took photos. More

Video: Stephen Colbert Plays Fondue Pong at the Vancouver Winter Olympics Swiss House

Erin Zimmer 2 comments

Stephen Colbert visited the Swiss House at the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics, where he challenged director Manuel Salchli to a bout of fondue pong. It's just like beer pong except instead of cheapo frat party beer, you try to land the ball in a pot of scalding fondue. And following traditional pong rules, this means the loser has to chug back the cheese ooze. More
