Taste Yaletown Premiere

Last night’s Taste of Yaletown Premiere brought out a packed crowd of food-loving Vancouverites to try some of the dishes featured in this year’s lineup of fixed-price menus around Yaletown.

Bites from Glowbal Grill Steaks and Satay, George Ultra Lounge, New Oxford, Hamilton Street Grill, Cache Lounge & Bistro, Killjoy, Minami, Society, and Yaletown L’Antipasto were some of the area eateries featured at the event, prepared by some of the neighbourhood’s favourite chefs.

All of the dishes I tried were delicious, but these three (from George, Minami, and Society) were my favourite tastes of the evening.
