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
