Welcome to our new Vancity Buzz video series, Off The Menu, where we’ll be exploring some of Vancouver’s favorite restaurants and meeting the people responsible for the food.
We’ll also have them cook us an exclusive dish for us that you will be able to order at the restaurant for a limited time.
Vancouver is home to some absolutely amazing restaurants headed by some of the most talented people cooking today but while we hear about good places to eat all the time, we seldom learn anything about the people behind the kitchen doors.

Our first episode features Thomas Heinrich of Mosaic Grille & Bar at the Hyatt Regency Vancouver. We talk food, inspiration, ninjas, Vancouver and lots more. Right now, you can order Chef Heinrich’s Braised Pemberton Meadows Short Rib with Buckwheat Risotto, Crispy Onions, and Parsnip for a limited time.
We’re also giving away a $100 gift card for one lucky viewer to try the menu at Mosaic for themselves! To enter, all you have to do is answer our contest question in the comments below! Best answer, as selected by the Vancity Buzz staff, will be eating at Mosaic on us!
Inspired by Chef Heinrich’s prank on a hapless apprentice, tell us your best, funniest story involving food. Eating at a restaurant, working at a restaurant, cooking at home…doesn’t matter as long as it’s hilarious!
Don’t have a funny food story? Then tell us…pirates or ninjas? AND WHY?
That’s it! Contest Deadline is JUNE 1ST and a winner will be selected shortly afterwards. Good luck!
We’d also love to hear any feedback you have for us as we develop this video series. We’re having a lot of fun with it and evolving the idea as we go along so tell us what you think or if you have a restaurant you’d like us to check out!
