Just a brief heads-up to anyone in the Vancouver area: CityTV is hosting their annual Taste of the City food festival this year on the PNE fairgrounds and the munch-fest is scheduled to take place this Saturday between noon and 8pm. I went to the Taste of the City last year when it was at the Plaza of Nations, and while the food was pretty good, I couldn’t get past the horrendous line-ups and poor organization. Hopefully the PNE venue will be more accommodating.
I haven’t decided if I’m going, but I”ll probably pop by, just because I’m a sucker for good food. Some of the notable attendees this year include Vera’s Burger Shack (you can’t beat Vera’s meat), Joey’s, Sate Satu Modern Indonesian, Maurya Indian Cuisine, O’Doul’s Restaurant and Bar, Nando’s Chicken, Lombardo’s Pizzeria, and Patisserie Lebeau. Alternatively, I could just go to Richmond Night Market and eat the ethnic cuisine there.
