While being a student is a time for learning and developing your skills, it can also be a time when you don’t have a lot of extra money to spend on things like going out on the town. This month however, you can taste the best food the city has to offer at prices you can afford. Dine Out Vancouver is an annual food festival where restaurants all across the city create a special festival menus for those wishing to sample fine dining on a student budget. Meals range in price from $18, $28, or $38 this year. If you don’t think that’s a deal, check out their regular menu (ouch). Check out this website to learn more. I suggest you call and ask if the restaurant if they are offering their Dine Out menu that night. On weekends, you may have to wait. http://www.opentable.com/promo.aspx?pid=158&m=73
My top recommendations are: L’abbatoir, Judas Goat, Chambar, Market, Xi Shi Lounge, Shangri-La Hotel Vancouver, The Observatory at Grouse Mountain. These are some of the best restaurants you will ever have the fortune to dine in and Dine Out Vancouver makes it possible for everyone to enjoy what usually only a few can afford.
