It feels like every week there is a new insane food you need to try. From pints of beer ramen to a cake that looks like a dog, you won't believe the options out there. So, if you are searching for more Instagram worthy bites, we've got you covered. With so many options, we did our best to narrow it down the list to some of the weirdest options — that still taste amazing. Here are nine totally crazy Vancouver foods that you need to try at least once in your life.
If you are someone who loves sugar, you could gather up three friends and try to complete a parfait that has 24 scoops of ice cream.
Or you could treat yourself to one of the sweets at Billy Button Dessert Bar that aren't exactly what they appear to be. While the desserts here look like a mushroom, strawberry and orange when you dive in with your fork, you will be surprised to find out what is inside.
Meanwhile, if you are some who loves a good food challenge, around town, you can get a hefty 10-pound bowl of poke. It is so colossal it would be a meal for several of your friends.
But if you don't want to share, you could try to defeat a towering burger that is bigger than your head. The Beast comes with eight patties, plus cheese and bacon.
