3 Mount Pleasant Restaurants for Dine In and Take Out
- October 22, 2020
Mount Pleasant is one of the best neighbourhoods in Vancouver for dining out. The Main Street strip is long and incredibly diverse, and you’ll find any kind of cuisine you can possibly imagine, in any type of meal, in any type of eatery. Seriously: the options are limitless. Many of these great places are now open for dine-in service, curbside pick-up, or outdoor dining on expanded sidewalk patios. And not only is taking an eating tour a great way to explore this corner of the city, it’s also a great way to support local businesses in these tough times. Check out the following for fine dining, Mediterranean vegan eats, and brunch with a nostalgic twist.
This much-loved restaurant is a neighbourhood favourite, and for good reason: they have a huge menu filled with nourishing vegan comfort food, Israeli style, which includes salads, falafel, “chicken” schnitzel, kabobs, and so much more. Not to mention, their hummus is absolutely divine. Order lots of little plates to share and wash it all down with a fresh blend of carrot, beet, and ginger juice.
Styled “with the décor of your favourite uncle’s 1970s rec room” and featuring a menu of nostalgic childhood snacks and kitschy comfort food like deep fried oreos, ants on a log, and peanut butter burgers, the Rumpus Room makes brunch so much more fun. Don’t forget to order your root beer float!
Truly art on a plate. This vegetarian restaurant promises one of the most imaginative menus you’ll ever see, and the food is absolutely incredible to boot, with totally unique and innovative ways of cooking with produce and herbs. Take this dessert, for example: poached black plum, with plum leather, juniper shortbread, and candied reindeer lichen. Wow.
