Tonight, Sarah, Stephen Fung, Ed Lau, Leo Chiang and myself attended the opening gala for a Taste of Yaletown. The 4th Annual Taste of Yaletown runs from October 14 to 26 and features three-course menus at fixed prices of $25, $35 or $45. It’s very much like Dine Out Vancouver but all the participating restaurants are from the Yaletown area. There are 22 restaurants participating in this year’s Taste of Yaletown. You can make reservations by calling the restaurants or by booking with Open Table.
The opening gala party was held at Tequila Kitchen and featured dishes from some of the participating restaurants. Peller Estates was also there to show off some of their award winning wines from the Okanagan Valley. In the end, we had way too much to drink and eat.
A Taste of Yaletown is sponsored by American Express and if you charge your Taste of Yaletown meal to your Amex, they will donate 5% of the meal to the Canadian Association of Food Banks. I have a feeling I’m going to be eating out a lot between October 14 – 26.
