Out of the ashes we are Reborn.

January 9th, 2012 · 1 Comment

Hello Friends!

I will keep this short and sweet. After a major debacle involving unclear domain ownership, losing the domain and by fluke just recently getting it back, like a phoenix we are reborn  – not anew but as (hopefully) the same eatvancouver.net that you grew to love. It’s been over a year since our setback but I can now accurately refer to it as a “temporary” setback.

I’m Not There

goodbyeI’m Not There
A Farewell

Originally posted in early October

By Jason Chin
Former Eat Vancouver Editor

Perceptive readers may have noticed a lack of Eat Vancouver posts over the past month. And there is a very simple, but somewhat gloomy explanation: I’ve moved away. Several months ago my PhD advisor decided to accept a job offer at UC Santa Barbara, and in order to remain under his supervision, I opted to join him. It wasn’t an easy decision because over the past four years I grew quite fond of Vancouver, met some dear friends, and lived some cherished experiences. In the end though, it just wasn’t practical that I stay, especially at the point in my degree in which it classes and teaching have yielded way to research and more research.

Vancouver Bartender Wins a Mixology Challenge

August 18th, 2008 · 3 Comments

Below is a press release describing Shaun Layton’s recent victory at a mixology contest. Layton is a bartender at George Ultra Lounge in Yaletown.

I went to George a couple of times and while I must say they do cocktails the right way, they are dead expensive. And the clientele has an unmistakeably douchy aura about them. But besides that, thumbs up. The cocktail (full recipe below) actually sounds very good.

Sarpino’s Pizzeria

August 15th, 2008 · No Comments

In a haze of packing, kayaking and last minute shopping, my brother and I found ourselves famished at 3pm on West Broadway and Fir. A whole bunch of places were closed until dinner and we didn’t feel like going to Earl’s, so we stopped into this new pizzeria that was having some kind of soft opening. The pizzas they were selling by the slice had clearly been around for a time, but we decided to have a go anyway. It’s a chain restaurant, but it seems like a pretty nice family runs this franchise. I paid with a $50, and the owner’s daughter gave me change for a $100. So there’s always the chance you could get a really good deal there (I kid).

Anyhow, for the first day, the pizza was alright, if a bit thick for my taste. But they seem like good people, and they just sent me the following email, and menu. Could be worth a shot.

Mojito Madness at Figmint

August 13th, 2008 · No Comments

Following this brief interlude, stay tuned for a press release about Figmint‘s new mojito series. Because when reading about mojitos, it’s best to listen to The Submarine’s new upbeat hit, You, Me and The Bourgeoisie. And let’s face it, I’m always right.

Now, when I’m entertaining in the summer, I often go the old BC-fruit mojito route. It’s a real crowd-pleaser, and I get to break out my muddler to boot. But can you really call something a mojito if it’s not simply lime, mint, sugar, rum and club soda? I’m thinking we need some new names for these, especially my new classic BC cherry mojito (the tart cherries leave less chance of an oversweet product). How about: The Chancellor?
