Ladurée macarons

Springtime in Vancouver, love is in the air with a touch of Paris. A French invasion of pastry is taking over Vancouver with Laduree’s new location in Holt Renfrew and the decadent treats from L’éclair de Génie finding a new home on Robson Street. With our lives being so busy it’s important to slow down and take some time for yourself.  Have one of Ladurée’s signature tea blends with a macaron or three. The rose macaron is everything you need with a just a hint of honey and pairs beautifully with the signature tea blend., @ladureecanada

Masaladobo – Salmon Pekoras

Masaladobo is the new Vancouver project for Top Chef Canada contestant and creator of Victoria’s Red Fish, Blue Fish. Located on Granville Street Masaladobo is a unique fusion of Indian and Mexican cuisines. It might sound strange to some, but with many common flavours you are left with a bright and flavourful menu that is completely dairy free and can be made gluten free upon request. Try the konoMole soup on one of Vancouver’s rainy days or ceviche and on tap margaritas for a sunny day! Did I mention they are $5 for happy hour?

Forkhill House – Ulster Fry Up

Forkhill House Irish Bistro is what you get when you think of an Irish pub it is dark but cozy and warm, then you bring it out of a basement and into the light and you get Forkhill. You won’t leave hungry with generous portions of well prepared comfort food. This bistro does a classic Irish Fry Up with 2 eggs, bacon, a banger (sausage for those not in the know), soda bread, roasted tomato and baked beans. Perfect for brunch, late lunch or recovering from the Irish flu., @forkhillhouse

Beer flight at Andina Brewing Co.

Heading out to Powell Street, the home to many of Vancouver’s craft breweries, you must check out Andina Brewing Company. The word Andina, comes from the word for the people from the Andes Mountains and is a great source of inspiration for this family owned and operated brewery, allowing them to showcase their South American & Colombian culture, using Patagonian malt. Andina’s style is a lighter, fresher style of beers perfect for summer, which is quickly approaching. Andina also provides snacks to help you refuel during a long day of tasting beers, including a daily ceviche., @andinabrewingco

The Pawn Shop YVR – tacos

The Pawn Shop YVR, may open at 11am for lunch but where it really hits it’s mark is the after work drinks to late night crowd. With a tequila list 40 bottles long and great music, Pawn Shop is unapologetically loud, brash and fun. The fishbowl cocktails and nachos make it a great place to hang out with friends. Just don’t forget to have dessert, the Deep Fried Waffles are not to be missed., @thepawnshopyvr
