193 Keefer Place
PappaRoti – the buttery, coffee-caramel coated “father of all buns” that first took Malaysia by storm in 2003 and has since opened over 400 café locations worldwide – and is now developing throughout Canada.
Our coffee buns are freshly baked every 20 minutes in our stores, which attract people of all nationalities and age groups. Light enough to pass off as a snack rather than a meal, these delicious coffee-caramel buns are soft and fluffy, with a crispy top layering of coffee caramel, served alone or in combination with our various signature hot and cold beverages.
In addition to the coffee buns Papparoti is also proud to pronounce its new product offering the Pappa Rollie a soft and flaky croissant like texture pastry with Kaya (young coconut filling jam) inside – this item is a sure win amongst all our customers!
433 Robson Street in The Westin Grand
Inside the Westin Grand, Vancouver, overlooking the city’s vibrant Library Square Hendricks Resto-Lounge offers a contemporary twist on the classics. With a subtle nod to West Coast lounge culture, Hendricks is both a full-service restaurant showcasing clean, modern cuisine as well as an old-school cocktail bar stirring up decadently crafted cocktails. Hendricks features a rotating roster of live musical performances and DJ sets on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
Stretch Roman Pizza Co.
415 Abbott Street, Vancouver
Cuisine: Italian pizzeria
Meet the Roman pizza, inspired by the popular gourmet street food of Rome.
The Italians call it “pizza al taglio”, we call it a perfect slice of pizza!
Starting with the use of high quality, authentic Italian flour and a lengthy 48-hour dough making process, we produce a product that is light and airy with a slight crispiness to the crust.
910 Beatty Street, Vancouver
We are not your traditional Chinese restaurant. At Elements Diner, we bring together a variety of international fusion dishes from many parts of the world that have influenced Hong Kong. Including flavors from the China, Japan, Philippines, France, Italy, and the Americas; Hong Kong cuisine brings elements together to create a well-balanced dish, bursting with flavor.
At Elements Diner, we believe that food should be real and authentic. We take pride in the fact that we add no MSG nor additional salt to our dishes. Using fresh ingredients, we create dishes with unique flavors that you won’t find anywhere else.
The Poke Guy
420 Richards Street, Vancouver
Poke (raw fish salad) with quality ingredients, wild (not farmed) seafood, sustainable sourcing (Ocean Wise), 100% compostable packaging, gluten free, using REAL Hawaiian salts, spreading a little aloha in every bite.
