Mt. Pleasant: Good Eats in a Great Neighbourhood

The last instalment in our Dine Out Vancouver series showcases your dining options in the neighbourhood of Mount Pleasant. In case you’ve been holding off on picking a spot to eat at for this year’s festival, you only have until February 2, 2014. So don’t wait. Get out there and check out these great spots in Mount Pleasant.

Tap and Barrel – $28

Olympic Village at the tip of False Creek, was a ghost town after the 2010 Olympics. Now it’s a bustling neighbourhood with a great food and a buzzing atmosphere. Tap and Barrel is no exception, having been one of the original restaurants in the hood. Their menu this year for Dine Out is not to be missed, with Salt Spring Island Mussels, Okanagan Goat Cheese Pizza, and their very own Mason Jar S’mores. Check out their Dine Out menu for complete selections.

Chicha – $28

This Peruvian dining experience is as unique and delectable as one will find in Vancouver. At Chicha, everything on their menu is made from scratch, fresh with love. You can really taste the passion that they put into the food. The Palitas de Yuca, Pollo anticuchos, Veraduras Novoandinas, and Spiced Aji Chili Dark Chocolate Bread Pudding should all be experienced. Be sure to read through their selections for Dine Out, as there are some real gems.

This year’s Dine Out Vancouver Festival is one of the biggest since its debut. With so many events over the course of the two weeks and tons of great restaurants participating, Dine Out is one of the great winter festivals going on in Vancouver. Don’t forget to check out my picks for restaurants in Gastown and Yaletown as well, and get out there and eat. Catch up with friends or loved ones, and enjoy Vancouver’s culinary craftsmanship.
