GoBlueBC

Did you miss BC Blueberry Day on July 15? That means it’s the start of our blueberry season. This year, if you are looking for farms to pick or buy blueberries, recipes, how-to videos of local chefs, interviews of blueberry farmers, and other blueberry festivities, check out the new online hub at GoBlueBC.ca. Most excitingly, there is a grand prize contest presented by White Spot and Triple O’s for a chance to win $1,000 in gift cards and other prizes. The contest ends on August 3.

Dine Out Vancouver is back! Running from January 17 to February 2, the prix fixe portion of this year’s program is the same as last year, with 4 price points at $15, $25, $35 and $45. There are also lunch options, usually at a cheaper price than dinner. Menu may not be the same as dinner, though, so the value for money is a bit debatable.

The menus are now live and reservations are open. As I was going through the menus, I noticed a lot of new restaurants, ones that I’ve never heard of before. There’s been a lot of openings and closures last year so it makes sense – but it’s also nice to know it’s not the same old list. Here are some suggestions, based on past experience (Dine Out or not) as well as menu attractiveness (e.g. value for the money, choice of ingredients, creativity in the menu, enough options for two people, etc.). Now keep in mind I curated the list based on my preference (as you know, I’m a meat lover and I’m biased against chicken and salmon), my way of thinking, so it may not all suit your taste. But hopefully this gives you a place to start.

I’ve included links to the menu to make it easier for you.
