Vancouver Cheap Eats: Food You Eat With Your Hands

Dec 19 2017, 5:53 pm

Our favourite meals tend to be the ones that require nature’s original utensils. There’s nothing quite like rolling your sleeves up, tucking a napkin into your collar, and going in hands first. This week Vancity Buzz and Chowmenow have rounded up some menu items that are best eaten without a knife and fork. In fact, all that’s required is a $5 bill and a large stack of serviettes.
