Dine Out Vancouver returns January 16 to February 1, 2015 with more than 70 food-themed events, 25 hotels offering special room rates and packages, a record-setting 277 restaurants dishing up prix fixe menus at $18, $28 and $38 price points. A big part of Dine Out Vancouver over the years has been its events and nothing gets Vancouverites quite as excited as food trucks and unique street eats. Richard Wolak of Vancouver Foodster is famous for his neighbourhood dining events and he’s stepped up to present a multi-date series celebrating everyone’s favourite meal, brunch.
Dine Out Vancouver Brunch Crawls
“Brunch is popular in our city because it gives people a chance to catchup with friends over food, which is a widely popular activity for most foodies,” Richard told me over email. “People lead busy working lives during the week, since most of the foodie oriented restaurants are often busy during the weeknights, the weekend has become the time people can make it an outing and be casual.”

Richard says each neighbourhood crawl will be different due to the makeup of each area. “For example in the Gastown Brunch Crawl on January 17th you’ll find a French and Spanish focus with menu items such as Croquetta de Bacalao (salt cod), burnt orange, sherry sauce, fennel salad at Salida 7 and Cassoulet at Jules Bistro.
On the Kitsilano Brunch Crawl January 18th you will find a Vietnamese and Italian focus with Novo Breakfast pizza – Fontina, fior di latte, Aleppo pepper, red onions, smoked pancetta, sous vide quail egg, Iberian salumi, chives at Novo Pizzeria and Peanut Macarons with Peanut butter cream, almond, toasted peanut at Linh Cafe — just to name a few.”
