The Italian Gas Station Experiment at Salt Tasting Room

Salt Tasting Room is launching the Italian Gas Station Experiment, but the concept of “drive through” and “greasy spoon” will be the last thing on your mind, and your palette. The food that Italian motorists refuel with is anything but boring, and Gastown’s premier destination for wine and cheese is traveling to Italy to share some delicious delicacies with you in Vancouver.


The Italian Gas Station Experiment at Salt Tasting Room

Salt has partnered with Port Moody-based Urbani Foods to offer complimentary samples of their products, which are inspired by the gas stations in one of Europe’s most beloved food spots. Running for the entire month of February, guests who order wine by the glass, flight or bottle will receive samples of these tasty snacks.


Guests can expect delectable fare such as Venetian tea sandwiches with cheese, salami and olive tapenade, fresh sausages sous vide in a jar, and their famous arancini risotto balls (also called ‘Polpette di Riso’).

For one month only, hungry guests will have the opportunity to savour Italy’s gas station fare without straying too far. Whether seeking a quick snack before dinner or the perfect post-work meeting spot, The ‘Italian Gas Station Experiment’ will surely welcome foodies from all over.

The Italian Gas Station Experiment launched at Salt Tasting Room on February 1st, and is being offered on Mondays through Sundays from 4:00pm to 6:00pm.

For more information or to book a reservation, call 604-633-1912 or visit Salt Tasting Room’s website.

    I think the gas station project is quite brilliant. As I traveled through Europe via bicycle (Amsterdam to Istanbul), I was surprised at the variety of cuisines you could find that were fresh and tasty at local gas stations. I am also a sucker for candies, but it was also nice to see there were healthy options as well.
