Whether they are located in the bustling downtown core, or they’ve opened just a skip, hop, and a jump away from Vancouver – we love these new spots and urge you to try them if you haven’t already.

Trust us, your tastebuds will thank you.

The new Vancouver eatery is a spot for beer and comfort food lovers alike, Bells and Whistles opened its doors at the beginning of October and its been packed ever since. Boasting an incredible selection of local craft beer (including a custom blend from Four Winds on the menu), Bells and Whistles has quickly become a hot spot to head for a pint or a spot of all-day breakfast.

We can’t forget to mention the six kinds of house-made soft serve, it’s the only place to get this authentic powder-free treat in the city.

Honey Salt Vancouver

Brand new to Vancouver’s foodie scene, Honey Salt Vancouver opened mid-October on the first floor of the Parq Vancouver urban casino resort.

This farm-to-table concept comes to us from its Las Vegas flagship location, where the charm of the living room-like decor and fresh, innovative offerings were so popular, we’re glad this spot made the jump north of the border for its second location.

The savoury food it is to die for, as the menu brings us hearty mains like their famous Biloxi Buttermilk Fried Chicken Sandwich and the incredible appetizers such as the Honey Salt Market – a combo vegetables (which rotate depending on what’s in season), sweet potato crisps, and house-made goddess dip and hummus.

We recommend you don’t leave without opting for dessert – especially with that Society Chocolate & Banana Cake there for the taking.
