Vancouver Cheap Eats: Black Friday Food Deals

Dec 19 2017, 8:58 am

We love ourselves a good sale, and clearly we’re not alone. People across North America willingly line up for cheap deals, resorting to extreme measures like camping out over night in the freezing cold just for the chance to redeem big savings.

While Black Friday may be synonymous with sales on electronics, appliances, and clothes, we’re glad to see some Vancouver restaurants jumping on the savings bandwagon. This week Vancity Buzz and Chowmenow are sharing some of our top picks that are available this weekend only. All you need is $5 and an empty stomach.

Bianco Lisa’s Kitchen

If you need a break from the crazy crowds on Robson Street, head to Bianco Lisa’s Kitchen, located on the second floor of the Robson Public Market. While it’s not exactly a place to go for ambiance, they’re cutting their prices this weekend. Take advantage of the Deep Fried Spring Rolls or the Shrimp Salad Roll (3 rolls each) for $3.99.

FreshSlice Pizza


Run, don’t walk! The first 30 Customers can get 8 extra large slices for $8 or 2 extra large slices and a medium fountain drink for only $2.99!

Tarts Bakery

Tarts Bakery

Purchase a lovely sweet or savory tart today or Saturday and you’ll receive a free apple cider with any purchase. Small tarts (2.25 inches) are under $2 while the larger tarts (4.75 inches) in classic butter, butter pecan, raspberry macaroon, and lemon are $4.95.

Hanafubuki Sushi


If you’ve never tried Takoyaki before, now you have the perfect excuse. Enjoy paying half price on this Japanese snack. Originally, five pieces were $5.95, but are now $2.95 in honour of Black Friday weekend!



Today and tomorrow enjoy 20% off the entire menu at Bambudda, making snacks, small plates, and sides much less than your $5 budget. Tea eggs, veggie sausage, steam buns and, of course, that famous oven roasted chicken crackling are just some of the sweet savings you can sample.


These five restaurants merely skim the surface of deals to be had this weekend. To see a full list of shops where you can eat and save, visit the list of Black Friday Sales.
