The tastiest smoked meat sandwiches in Vancouver

There’s nothing like melt-in-your-mouth smoked meat, piled high between two slices of bread, to satisfy your salty, smoky cravings. While most wouldn’t think of Vancouver as a smoked-meat capital, the real deal is still tucked away in delis, bagel shops and poutineries around the city. Here are the best smoked meat sandwiches west of Montreal. [Photo credit: Whitman]

Harvest Deli

2963 Broadway W, Vancouver, BC V6K 2G9

Say “bonjour” to Mr. Montreal – smoked brisket, Dijon mustard and Swiss cheese served on homemade sourdough, a deli offering that is sure to please. Known for its affordable and delicious sandwiches, Harvest Deli is a Kitsilano mainstay, so be sure to swing by and give Mr. Montreal a try.

La Grotta Del Formaggio

1791 Commercial Dr, Vancouver, BC V5N 4A4

Purists may balk at putting smoked meat in a panini, but this legendary Italian deli sees nothing wrong with melting cultures together. La Grotta is one of the best-priced sandwich shops on The Drive, so get your smoked meat to go and stock up on gourmet cheeses and authentic pasta while you’re there.

Siegel's Bagels

1883 Cornwall Ave, Vancouver, BC V6J 1C6

It’s fitting that one of Vancouver’s most authentic bagel shops also serves a classic smoked-meat sandwich. Tuck into their take on this traditional kosher-style sandwich from either the Granville Island Public Market or Kitsilano location, and your life will never be the same.

On a cold, snowy Edmonton night, nothing says lovin’ like a cup of hot chocolate. It’s no surprise this drink was originally dubbed the “elixir of the gods.” Regardless of the variety you select, or whether you opt for the simplest hot chocolate on the menu, all I can say is ... don’t forget the marshmallows.
You don’t have to travel to Paris to have a true fine-dining experience; you can enjoy an upscale dinner, complete with a five-course meal and fine wine, right here at home. Victoria is a fine-dining destination with an excellent reputation – where talented chefs enjoy crafting delicious gourmet dishes from fresh, locally sourced ingredients.
Paired with a nice cup of coffee or topped with a scoop of ice cream, pie is unbeatable comfort food. And yet it faces stiff competition from cupcakes as the city’s dessert of choice. Well, pie is fighting back with old fashioned deliciousness as well as new and tantalizing flavours.
