Salted Brick - Kelowna, BC

I find myself at Salted Brick, which is a walk-by discovery for me. I’m trying to cut down on my cured meat intake, but I love simple charcuterie. Salted Brick is located on Bernard Avenue between the Paramount Theatre and Moo Lix Ice Cream.(Click here for my Moo Lix visit.)

Danforth Deli: Chowder and Cheese - Nanaimo, BC

**UPDATE 2014: Sadly Danforth Deli is now closed. Nooooo!!....Why!??**

Okay so here’s the last of the Danforth Deli posts. The deli is in the midst of moving locations, and this particular visit pertains to the soon-to-be old location.

I'm making a quick back and forth trip between Nanaimo and Vancouver. Knowing the food options are limited at the Departure Bay ferry terminal, I brought with me a take-away late lunch from Danforth Deli. The last time I wrote about Danforth chowder it was a Nanoose Bay Clam Chowder. Click here for that bowl of goodness.

Danforth Deli: Breakfast - Nanaimo, BC

**UPDATE 2014: Sadly Danforth Deli is now closed. Nooooo!!....Why!??**

Okay, I know I’ve already posted about Danforth Deli before. They are currently in the midst of relocation so I’ll push out my posts about them since all my visits will refer to their original location. Just two more quick write-ups and I’ll leave it at that. This one will be about breakfast.

I usually come here for lunch, but I made an effort to get down here in time for their morning offerings.

Danforth Deli: Hamburgers - Nanaimo, BC

**UPDATE 2014: Danforth Deli is now closed. I'm so sad about this.**

Danforth Deli - Nanaimo, BC

**UPDATE 2014: Sadly Danforth Deli is now closed. Nooooo!!....Why!??**

I am still in Nanaimo on special assignment. Since I’m here on Vancouver Island for several weeks, it makes more sense to rent a place rather than to hotel it. Don’t get me wrong I have nothing against daily housekeeping services and fresh linens at my disposal, but hotel-living gets old really fast. And there are no major hotels here in Nanaimo to which I am a card-carrying loyalty member. So there’s that.

Fratelli Foods Pho - Kamloops, BC

I first wrote about Fratelli Foods offering phở way back in January. Fratelli’s doesn’t offer beef noodle soup every day of the week, so I knew it would be a while before the stars aligned, and I found myself downtown on an afternoon when the broth was a brewin'. Today was the day.

I love having hot soupy noodles on a hot day. Sweat it out.

Fratelli Foods: Pho - Kamloops, BC

Did you know there is pho available at Fratelli Foods?
I noticed this sign the other day at Fratelli Foods on Victoria Street. A bowl of pho can be had on Mondays or Wednesdays for $7. I strolled by during the weekend, so I couldn't try.

It will be awhile before I can get myself downtown on a Monday or Wednesday afternoon.

Have you tried Fratelli pho?

Kingsway Deli - Vancouver, BC

The Kingsway Deli sits next to Tung Hing Bakery, near the corner of Kingsway and Inverness. For years I've been playing out my own version of the Battle of the Bánh Mì between these two. If you come to get a bánh mì at the Tung Hing Bakery, then you must stop by Kingsway Deli as well. They also serve bánh mì, and it is tasty too. Kingsway Deli's subs are slightly cheaper than Tung Hing, but the real reason why I come here is for their popsicles. Yes, my friends, the frozen fruit pops!

Gary's European Sausage & Deli - Kamloops, BC

If you ever move to a new place and want to know where to get good sausage my advice is to chat with local hunters. That’s how I first heard about Gary’s European Sausage and Deli. Not that I hunt or anything...

I’ve been meaning to visit Gary’s European Sausage and Deli for some time now, but have been taking my sweet ol’ time getting to it. Recently, a Love of Eating reader commented that he spotted malt beverages there. Well, I put my visit on fast-forward and made a visit on route to the garden centre.

Keely's Chop n' Block - Kamloops, BC

**UPDATE November 2011: Keely's Chop n' Block is now called Murphy's Chop n' Block, (or is it Murphy's Chopping Block?)**

Keely’s Chop n’ Block is one of the businesses tucked into the shopping area near the Canadian Tire on Hillside. It's across from Gourmet Greens. Out of sheer laziness I’m stopping into Keely’s chopping block to pick up a pound of pre-ground meat. Sometimes, if I only need a little bit of hamburger I don’t bother grinding my own. Also, I spend far too much time obsessing over cleaning the contraption afterwards. So there’s that.
