Restaurant Hopping At The Taste of Yaletown

Taste of Yaletown

Vancouver food and wine enthusiasts are invited to discover and enjoy the fantastic offerings of Yaletown’s premier restaurants during the 5th Annual Taste of Yaletown event. The Taste of Yaletown is very much like Dine Out Vancouver but all the participating restaurants are from the Yaletown area.

Taste of Yaletown 2009 will include 22 of Yaletown’s fabulous restaurants offering special three-course tasting menus for set prices of $25, $35 and $45. A portion of proceeds raised from each participating restaurant will be donated to The Greater Vancouver Food Bank.

We were invited to a VIP preview event to experience some of the restaurants participating in this year’s Taste of Yaletown. Normally, every restaurant serves a three course menu but for our experience, we were treated to an opening course from Glowbal Grill & Satay Bar, a main course from Goldfish Pacific Kitchen and dessert with beer at the Yaletown Brewing Co. We also checked out the Cactus Club to see what they had to offer. Needless to say, it was a lot of food and we were stuffed after. Good thing we got in some walking in between the courses!

The 2009 Taste of Yaletown starts October 15th until the 31st. You can make reservations by calling the restaurants or by booking with Open Table. Once I get back from Blog World, I plan on checking out quite a few of the restaurants on the Taste of Yaletown list.

        Jagoya? Sound like Nogoya city in Japan lol, was the restaurant good? what did u eat?

        1. Lee Ka Hoong says:

          I’m not sure whether Jogoya exist in Japan, but that’s a Japanese Buffet Restaurant in my country, about $35 per pax, that’s considered quite expensive in my country..

          Yesterday was my first time there, out of my expectation, Tenji better (Another Japanese Buffet Restaurant), heard it before?

          I had snow crab, scarlob, smoked salmon, smoke prawn, steamed fish, sushi, haagen dazz, and a lot more..

          1. So your stomach is full and after seeing these photos you are hungry again.

            Boy you got really amazing digestive system.

      How did you know that Ed took those pictures? Couldn’t John just miraculously become a decent photographer overnight? 😆

      1. Ed Lau says:

        Because there’s a credit at the end of the post?

        1. Stephen says:

          I didn’t even see that when the post first went up. Was it added later?

  7. Lee Ka Hoong says:

    Oooo..the desert at the 3rd photo looked promising..I’m drooling man!
    They’re really doing a great job on the decoration of the food.

    1. I am sure they have attend separate class to decorate food.

      Such decoration can make food more costly 😉

    John Chow you love food dont you? How dont you put on weight?

    1. Because he is not eating junk food, he is eating healthy and nutritious food.

      We simply love these videos John.

  9. Hey John,

    The best thing about your blog that I like is that apart from being a marketing helping advices you also gives away a list of good restaurants which I love very much.

    The pictures are yummy and it made me order food from the restaurant nearby.

  10. money-era says:

    John, do you eat-out every day? And are these all fine-dine restaurants?

    1. You can see the quality of food and with that you can guess this one is fine dine restaurants.

      Although John also cover few local restaurants as well but quality of their food is also good looking.

  11. Gotta love that VIP treatment!
