Last weekend, I sent myself and Mr. to check out Eat! Vancouver 2011. The biggest food consumer show in town, Eat Vancouver attracts visitors in the thousands each day. Except for the Pet Food section, we dropped by almost every booth at the event. If you didn’t go to the show, it’s actually impossible to tell you everything, so we will give you a glimpse of what you missed.

Things I Liked

BC Salmon Farmers Association – A huge fan of its smoked salmon nuggets, a must-have at the show. They hand out small pieces of the salmon nuggets as a sample, but you can also pay $2 (or 4 tickets) to get a bigger serving.

Island Farm – They used to hand out free ice cream, but it’s gotten so popular they now charge you $1 for a generous scoop of ice cream. We tried a flavour called “Moose Track”, which is vanilla ice cream with fudge swirls and tiny peanut butter cups. It’s very creamy, a bit rich, and I like the crunch of the peanut butter cups.

Ever since the opening of Bonchaz Cafe, I’ve been intrigued by something called the bonchaz. My bus drives by it every morning and evening, and I have yet to give it a try. Finally there’s a chance!! I walked by the store the other day and I just knew I had to walk in and pick some up.

So, I bought an Apple Cinnamon and the new Matcha Green Tea bonchaz:
