Vancouver Eats

Vancouver is one of my favorite cities.

What's the story with "Ploughman's Lunch?"

A ploughman's lunch is a plate (or platter) of cheese, bread, sometimes pickles. Nothing fancy. I believe it is old English pub fare (never been to England, but had it at many English-, Irish-, or even Scottish- style pubs around the country and in an Australian place in Hong Kong). Meant to be hearty and fast. I will say this conditionally, just how I've had it, and I have often. I think usually accompanied by beer/ale of some sort.

Actually I lied - I am familiar with Ploughman's lunch, just don't know what it has to do with Vancouver!

I lied, too, LPB. I had this nondescript lunch at Victoria and also at a Toronto suburb.

What, if any, is a food/dish signature of Vancouver?

I would probably have to say grilled salmon. You can find it on most menus in many different forms.

More casually, it would be the "Triple O" a hamburger from a local restaurant chain (not originally fast food but they have some now and are on our ferries, hockey arena, everywhere!) It has a secret sauce and real cheddar cheese. It is awesome!
