food, hip district
Why locals love it
The food is quite inventive and tasty. Their special roasted cauliflower is to die for. It is also at the northeastern edge of Vancouver's downtown, bordering on an area which has been transitioning from extremely gritty to more of a mix of gentrified and gritty. For a range of reasons, the area will be in this state for decades
Why you should visit it
In an historic building, terrific food, lots of options for vegetarians and carnivores alike.
The platters are a great way to try many dishes at once- they work very well with 2 or more. It's also very popular so go early (lunch & dinner).
