Dec 19 2017, 3:14 pm

Falconetti’s East Side Grill is an amazing spot in east Vancouver that’s butcher’s shop by day and a bar with performances at night. Here, you can enjoy top-notch grilled food alongside some beers on tap.
Falconetti’s is known for their nine flavours of sausages which are made fresh next door (see the full menu here). This grill prides itself in being the “best vibe of the drive” as it offers fun and affordable dining experiences for all.

Until July 6, Falconetti’s is pairing up with to provide a $16 dining pass that features two beers and three items. It has an incredible value because you get a good quantity and variety of food, including your choice of one of their famous sausages. Here’s a peek at what’s inside:

The Phillips Beer’s Blue Buck is a deep amber-coloured beer from Victoria. It features a delicate hop aroma that goes excellently with grilled foods. The best part about this dining package is that it comes with not one, but two glasses of this good stuff.

As mentioned earlier, sausages are Falconetti’s speciality. The Sweet Italian Sausage here is slightly spicy and takes more than several mouthfuls to eat. Topped with peppers and artichoke dip, this is a hot dog at its finest.

The Slow Smoked Pork Ribs are another featured item here. These soft and tender ribs are grilled to perfection and flavoured with tequila BBQ sauce.

Last but not least, all Canadians’ favourite: Poutine. The ones here are freshly made then drizzled with pepper gravy and chunks of Quebec cheese curds. Not bad, eh?
