It's that time of year again, foodies. Dine Out Vancouver 2020 is coming back to the city this month and we are beyond excited. From delicious new menu items to inexpensive eats, this event is a gourmand's dream come true. This year, there are several restaurants that are offering $15 menus for the festival.
While most of us would like to spend our lives eating at all the marvellous places in the city, it’s not exactly a budget-friendly lifestyle.
Don’t worry, though. From January 17 to February 2, you can taste the many wonders of the Vancouver food scene for cheap.
Dine Out Vancouver brings hundreds of chefs and restaurants together for 17 days full of food and drink. This community centred event is all about encouraging you to try new cuisines and flavours.
All participating restaurants offer $15, $25, $35, or $45 three-course menu options. Out of all the restaurants being showcased, 16 of them have fixed $15 menus for lunch or dinner.
Whether you are on a budget or just like to eat as much as humanly possible for next to nothing, this list will help you out.
Now all you need to do is book your reservation.
