After a long travel day and entering another time zone, I fully expected to crash as soon as I got to my hotel in Vancouver. I was hungry, though, and wanted to try out The Flying Pig’s Yaletown location.
When I was researching great foodie spots in Vancouver, The Yaletown Business Improvement Association reached out to me and recommended a number of different restaurants — The Flying Pig was one of them. Their menu spoke to me, so that’s where we ended up going.
It was around 10:30 p.m. Vancouver time and 1:30 a.m. Florida time when we actually went to dinner.
I assumed I’d be tired and maybe even a little dazed during the meal, as it was fairly late. However, not long after sitting down, I got my second or maybe third (or maybe fourth) wind of the day.
With a paloma in one hand and a slice of fresh bread in the other, I bobbed my head to the sounds of MGMT and Pinback. The energy of the place really woke me up and had me so excited about being in Vancouver. Also, our server was super nice and talkative, which made the experience even more fun.
The food? Well, our delicious meals fully rounded out the fabulous experience we had at The Flying Pig. I got their blackened steelhead trout served with garganelli pasta. It was such a satisfying and hearty dish.
For dessert, we got their chocolate and banana bread pudding. I was so full from the bread and the generous portion of trout I was served. I felt almost ashamed to be lifting my fork yet again, BUT after every bite of the sweet bread pudding, I was reminded that there’s no shame in the foodie game. The dessert was delicious and worth every bite.
If you find yourself in the Vancouver area and want to eat some yummy food in a really fun environment, head on over to The Flying Pig. You won’t regret it!
