#DOWNTOWNDISHES Top 3: River Market

Tuesday, March 27, 2018

We’re giving you the inside scoop on the must-try noms from all the local hot spots!

The River Market is our beloved community abode, located right on the water. If you ever find yourself wandering around the boardwalk, you can’t go wrong with one of these options in Downtown New West.


1. Pulled Pork Sandwich at Re-Up BBQ

One of Vancouver’s first food carts turned restaurant, Re-Up smokes their meat onsite daily for an intricate flavor like no other. Experience “low and slow” cooked pulled pork nestled with delicious creamy coleslaw, between a fresh baked bun. Pair it with an authentic Southern sweet tea, steeped everyday for maximum tastiness.


2. Kung Pao Noodles at Wild Rice

Wild Rice uses exclusively local ingredients to create eloquently layered fusion food that you won’t find anywhere besides Downtown New West. Try out this hearty bowl of free run chicken, broccoli, and twice cooked peanuts with rice noodles in a rich coconut sauce. Bonus: the team is happy to alter their dishes to accommodate any needs you might have, from allergies to gluten-free or vegan food!


3. Gelato at Tre Galli Gelato Caffe
This one is for our fellow sweet tooth readers; we can’t get enough of the endless gelato options at Tre Galli! Their artisan gelato is handmade from a secret Italian family recipe, and tastes fresh as can be. Layer up two different scoops for maximum enjoyment (we recommend Red Velvet and White Chocolate)!


Head out to the River Market today and treat your taste buds to one (or all) of our faves; don’t forget to share your foodie adventures with us on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter!
