As a little thank you to the BFF for babysitting the beast for us (the dog, not the Kid) I took her to a new vegetarian place here in Van city that was vegan and gf friendly. Perfect for our picky food demands. The Parker opened a little while ago and we have been meaning to give it a try so we headed out and we were very pleasantly surprised!
It was a tiny room but lucky for us, we did not have to wait for a table on a Wednesday evening.
They brought us a little amuse bouche of shaved beets and something else I can’t recall and it was lovely to look at and a perfect little bite.
Here’s what else we had and loved.
Bbq mushroom tacos, chickpea fries, Dukka with taro root chips and a raw chocolate brownie. All vegan and all gluten free!!!
My BFF loved the Dukka so much she had her own version a week or so ago. Check it out here. (Full disclosure, neither of us even knew what Dukka was! An amazing nut based middle eastern dip/spread as it turns out). We also had the kim chi which I quite enjoyed but she did not. To each their own right?
Give The Parker a try! Even your favorite carnivore will enjoy these dishes.
