One of Vancouver's favourite vegetarian restaurants is not just blowin' smoke - they're launching a Sunday BBQ series, and it gets going with an all-day, all-veg physically distanced cookout.
The Arbor will have two chefs, one grill, and a "$#!+ load of veg" on hand at their Mount Pleasant restaurant - which also happens to boast a killer hidden back patio - for a full-on feast from noon to 10 p.m. on Sunday, August 2.
The restaurant will be focused on this special one-day menu (so The Arbor's regular menu will not be available) but you can expect to find things like grilled zucchini, kohlrabi, and stuffed jalapeños, sourced from B.C. growers like Klippers Organics, as well as cornbread, and more.
"Don’t let the Summer of 2020 be a total write-off! The Arbor is doing everything it can to make sure you experience the joys of summer right from its own backyard! Come experience a physically conscious cookout the likes of which no one had ever thought possible (or necessary)," says The Arbor.
If you haven't checked out The Arbor yet, this is a great way to know the veggie restaurant, which specializes in crave-worthy meat-free comfort eats (burgers, fries, pasta, and their signature Southern-fried Artichoke Sandwich, to name a few). They also happen to be just a few doors down on Main Street from their award-winning sibling spot, The Acorn.
The backyard-style BBQ at The Acornis priced at $25 a head, which gets you a full meal and a drink. Pay admission at the door, and seating is first-come, first-serve in the dining room and on the patio. You can also take your grilled veg feast to go, too.
