19 Vancouver Restaurants Are Putting On A Huge Food Festival & These Ones Have The Best Deals

Dine Strathcona is back next week, with some local hot spots featuring menu items for the community event. The culinary festival runs from November 17 - 30 and brings together 19 restaurants from around the neighbourhood, all for a good cause.

Coffee shops, breweries and restaurants in the Downtown Eastside are participating by featuring special dishes that will donate $5 of their sale to HAVE Culinary Training Society. The not-for-profit organization's goal is to give opportunities for foodservice training and jobs to people in the community.

The festival is put on by the Strathcona Business Improvement Association and is a fun way to try out new spots while helping raise money. Plus, it's the perfect excuse to skip cooking dinner and just eat out.

Make sure to check out LanaLou's Restaurant where you can get empanadas for only $10, and Coastal Eden Cafe, which is selling a sandwich for $8.95. With $5 of that going to charity, it's a pretty good deal!

Here are all the participating places, and what they're serving up this year.
