If you know Vancouver as we do, then you know there is no shortage of epic eats to get your hands on here.

And while there are many places that offer amazing grub, there are some food items so wild they risk being ridiculously outrageous, and us foodies wouldn’t have it any other way.

So tall that it can’t even stand up vertically, the Society Chocolate & Banana Cake abides by the laws of gravity. It has a banana cake with caramelized bananas and chocolate cake, and it is also infused with a milk chocolate mousse layer. The cake is coated in a thick layer of dark chocolate glaze on the outside and comes served with a scoop of vanilla Earnest Ice Cream.

That’s right, a whole lobster on top of one of our favourite Italian exports, pizza. This unique pie is $45 a pop and features shrimp and lobster on a Boston thin crust pizza. Even if you don’t like seafood, this is the ultimate Insta-worthy morsel.

Outrageous eats

Hanna McLean/Daily Hive

This burger may be a whopping $24, but we can tell you from personal experience that the price is definitely worth this mind-boggling dish. The Dragon Slayer consists of a double beef patty, double cheese, onion rings, rosemary bacon, and thick fried pickles. You’re going to need jaws of steel for this one folks.
