Dunn’s Famous – the Revisit

A few weeks ago I was downtown Vancouver and I visited Dunn’s Famous, a restaurant known for serving smoked meat sandwiches.  Through some poor choices on my part, I was not overwhelmed by my first experience at Dunn’s Famous so I promised myself I would return and try more of the menu items. Yesterday was […]

Raw Cuts Sandwich Shop

What do you do when you forget your homemade lunch on your desk at home? If you’re near 10th Ave. and 6th street on the Burnaby New West border, you go to Raw Cuts Sandwich Shop.    And if you are really hungry, ask for the “Chinawich” from their menu.  It is awesome. And it […]

Dunn’s Famous Smoked Meats

Today I was on another of my forays into downtown Vancouver and I took the opportunity to hike up Seymour Street to visit a place I have long been interested in – Dunn’s Famous. According to their website, Dunn’s has been serving smoked meat sandwiches since 1927. I have to say, they are damned good […]

Meat and Bread on Pender Street

Knowing how much I enjoy the corned beef sandwiches served at Big Star Sandwich in New Westminster, yesterday my colleague convinced me to try a corned beef sandwich from Meat and Bread on Pender in Vancouver.     In short, it was an excellent lunch experience. Even though it gets very busy during the lunch “hour” […]

However, that is exactly what happened on the corner of 10th Ave and 6th St along the Burnaby, New West border. The Starbucks has closed and the independent coffee/sandwich shop is […]

Cheese St Grill

Although this grilled cheese sandwich from the Cheese St Grill food truck wasn’t actually my lunch, it was remarkable nonetheless. Thick slices of hearty sourdough bread held together an impressive pile of ham and caramelized onions. This grilled cheese sandwich was  filled to overflowing with juicy flavours. Awesome. Highly recommended and I will return to […]

Raw Cuts Sandwich Shop

I forgot my lunch at home this morning so I went over to Raw Cuts Sandwich Shop on the Burnaby side of the corner of 10th Ave and 6th Street and picked up one of their monstrous sandwiches, the “Chinawich”. Honestly, it was delicious. A mountain of thin sliced ham, lettuce, cheese, and a solid drenching […]

Schnitzel Sandwich 

I took a group of students to Revs Bowling Alley this afternoon and while they all wanted pizza, I opted for a sandwich.  The server told me that all the staff are loving the new schnitzel sandwich. She added that it is huge. Comes with fries so I figured, why not.     I suppose it […]

Dunn’s Famous Restaurant – Reboot

Yesterday, Dunn’s Famous Restaurant held a media event where they introduced their renewed menu to a selection of food bloggers and other media-types. Although I was unable to attend the event, I did manage to follow along on Instagram and I was impressed with the look of the updated menu and look of the restaurant. […]
