The East Vancouver neighbourhood of Commercial Drive is home to a great number of restaurants. Some have been around for decades, a result of the area’s Italian roots, others have sprung up in recent years.
This week, local food blogger Richard Wolak took several dozen people on a tour of some of the eateries in the area. As the publisher of the foodie website Vancouver Foodster, Wolak organizes Tasting Plates tours of different Vancouver neighbourhoods several times a year. Here are some of what we experienced on an overcast but not rainy June evening.
