Pick your poison with these Caesar deals in Vancouver

There’s a lot to be said about the Great Canadian Caesar – whether you’re praising it for it’s hangover-nixing capabilities, musing on what, exactly, clam nectar is, or debating about the ultimate Caesar liquor (gin, obviously). But I digress. The most important thing I have to say about Caesars is where to find one of good quality at the best price. Pick your poison and try one (or three) of these boozy drinks for yourself.

Save On Meats

1
43 Hastings St W, Vancouver, BC V6B 1G4

When it comes to crafting a hearty brunch Caesar at a price that is sensitive to the fact that you probably spent a little too much at the bar last night, Save on Meats is the East Side diner that wins, hands down. Served in mason jars with a pickle and bacon garnish (cut at the butcher shop next door), these guys are two-for-$10 every Sunday. So grab a buddy and head on down, and don’t forget to add an all-day breakfast to your order for just $4.99.

Caffe Brixton

212 Georgia St E, Vancouver, BC V6A 1Z7

A Caesar at ye olde’ Brixton comes one of two ways: good, and goddamn great. The regular Caesar is served with your typical fixings such as lime and olives, but it’s the signature Brixton Brunch Caesar that you’ll be ordering. A dash of horseradish goes a long way to spicing this one up, and it’s served with lots of pickled goodies for you to nosh on. Bonus: the Brixton has food options for the vegans and the carnivores in your crew, so deciding on a spot that will accommodate your entire group is a breeze.

The Flying Pig

102 Water St, Vancouver, BC V6B 1B2

Leave it to the restaurant with ‘pig’ in its name to really up the ante when it comes to the bacon content in (and on) your Caesar. Try a Bacon Bourbon Caesar for a nice smoky bacon flavour, with bonus points for the bacon bits rimming the glass. For round two, try Gramma’s Bloody Caesar, which packs a delicious punch due to the splash of Sriracha in the drink and a peppery-salted rim.

Rogue Kitchen & Wet Bar

4
601 Cordova St W, Vancouver, BC V6B 1G1

The Rogue Signature Cilantro Caesar is a thing of beauty – as long as cilantro is your thing. A typical order will see one delivered to you with house-made vodka infused with cilantro and cumin, spiced up with Tabasco and Worcestershire sauce, and completed with a full pepperoni stick. If you’re one of those unlucky souls who can’t stomach cilantro, sub in your favourite booze instead.

Cactus Club Cafe

5
1085 Canada Pl, Vancouver, BC V6C 0C3

You can tell your mom that you actually ate a full serving of veggies at brunch after you’ve ordered the Cactus Club Cafe Caesar. This beauty comes complete with a mild Borettane onion, a boozy olive, a Peruvian pepper and more. And at eight bucks for an ounce and a half of liquor, this is a treat that doesn’t break the bank. Visit on Sundays and the signature Caesar is just $6.

Nuba Gastown

6
207 Hastings St W, Vancouver, BC V6B 1H7

While as a rule, a Caesar must technically contain that illustrious substance known as clam nectar, every rule was made to be broken. The rule-breaker in this case is the Vegan Nuba Carrot Caesar, featuring a cumin-salted rim, fresh-pressed carrot and lemon juice, a special house-made hot sauce, and Braggs seasoning. Ask for a splash of beet juice if you want an extra earthy kick and bit of natural red colouring. Go on, give it a go and enjoy.

12 Kings Pub

7
395 Kingsway, Vancouver, BC V5T 3J7

Much has been said and written already about the infamous $60 Caesar of Davie Street (give it a Google to see the garnish cornucopia for yourself). On a much more financially responsible side of the scale is the Otebb Caesar at 12 Kings Pub. At $12 bucks, this guy is a steal of a deal featuring all of your basic ingredients plus a rim of crushed Ranch Doritos, pepper and maple bacon seasoning. The colossal drink is then garnished with prosciutto, fresh seasoned crab meat, carrots, cucumber and radish. This isn’t a Caesar; it’s a complete meal in a cup!

Much in the same way that movie theatres and the scent of buttery popcorn can never be separated, hot dogs have a distinctly nostalgic element. These savoury snacks bring up memories of Little League games and beans-and-weinies at home. Thankfully there are more and more places in Vancouver serving the humble hot dog in a variety of grown-up flavours and styles. [Photo © Yellow Pages / Pages Jaunes]
Locals and tourists alike love Gastown, and for good reason. This neighbourhood has the Old World charm of Montreal, and is chock full of independent retailers, bars and restaurants. Enjoying the neighbourhood can come, however, with a hefty price tag. So for those looking for a quick post-work pint, or a steal of a deal while out on pub crawl with friends, check out these Happy Hour specials! [Image courtesy of Six Acres]
It doesn’t take much to throw ghost pepper into a pot and transform a dish from “bland” to “three- alarm fire” hot. However, any true spice lover knows that when a dish is crafted to include spice – whether it’s fish simmered slowly in chili oil or crispy chicken wings lathered in Sriracha – the careful blend of savoury, salty and spicy can be a revelation. These signature spicy dishes in Vancouver are the hottest of the hot.
