Main Street has recently established itself as one of the foodie destinations. So when I received the invite to the Tasting Plates Main Street edition, I was quite happy and excited to accept it. Also glad to have LW join me at this event.

At this event we checked out the following restaurants. Some I’m familiar with, some are new to me. We were quite proud that this time around we managed to visit every one of them (in Gastown we actually missed one stop because we ran out of time).

  • Tapas23
  • Rocky Mountain Flatbread Co
  • Main Street Honey Shoppe
  • Shaktea
  • Rosemary Rocksalt
  • Miura Waffle Milk Bar

Once again I’ve used Storify to build my story using my Twitter coverage from the event along with additional comment at each stop. Click on the image or link below to check it out. Find out what I liked and what I didn’t like on this tour:

I recently checked out the Main Street Honey Shoppe, the retail front brought to you by the Honeybee Centre in Cloverdale. I remembered back in the days when I was working in the agriculture sector, I would drive by the Honeybee Centre all the time and stopped by a few times getting my fix of honey.

This retail store not only features their own honey product, but they also import interesting honey from Europe and Australia. You can also do honey tasting, or even grab a coffee to pair with pastries made with their honey.

This Vancouver store makes honey shopping much more convenient. Now you don’t have to drive out to Cloverdale to satisfy your sweet cravings.

Here are some photos of the store:
