A Foodie’s Journey through Gastown

A Foodie’s Journey through Gastown

Gastown is one of the coolest neighborhoods in the city of Vancouver, known for the big whistling Steam Clock.  The neighbourhood is filled with art galleries, Victorian architecture, souvenir shops along with a plethora of bars and restaurants.  The area downtown is filled with some pretty hip restaurants serving every type of cuisine imaginable.  If you consider yourself a foodie then you are going to love Gastown.  There are even tours you can take through the neighbourhood that include tastings at a couple of the different restaurants here.  If you’re on your own then let us show you where to eat.  Here is a look at the Gastown neighbourhood.

Tacofino

If you want to try some truly epic Mexican food then you’re going to love this place.  They have the best fish tacos in Vancouver (probably in all of Canada) but that isn’t all they serve here.  You are going to love the churros!  The place is warm and friendly and you can have dinner on the patio during the warmer months.  If you don’t have time to sit down and dine, then grab some takeout from the Burrito Bar.

L’Abbatoir

This is a popular destination for foodies from all over Vancouver, it serves upscale French cuisine and the service is five star.  It is a great place to grab brunch on the weekends and it offers a secluded spot for dinner that is guaranteed to impress.  The price of dinner for two here doesn’t come cheap but it is worth every penny.

Peckinpah

If upscale French food is not your thing, that’s okay head on over to Peckinpah for something just as tasty but a bit more casual.  You can grab some slow cooked smoked meat and southern Barbecue.  There is a patio for those hot summer nights and the atmosphere is fun and casual.  There are a number of craft beers on tap and a country vibe.

Six Acres

This is the perfect spot when you want some comfort food with a distinctly Canadian flavor, how about some poutine with cheese curds and beer gravy.  Finish the meal off with some double chocolate cookies that are to die for.  Located in the oldest building in Gastown the place is welcoming with a relaxed atmosphere and the prices will work for you.

Nicli Antica Pizzeria

What food tour would be complete without at least one place to go and get a good pizza.  Named the best pizza in the city for several years running, you won’t be disappointed.  They serve classic Neapolitan style pizza with fresh ingredients cooked in a wood fired oven.  This is perfect place to head to with the family.
