Smart Saver Vancouver

Dinner here, a drink there, … The money in my wallet just keeps disappearing. Yours too? Staying at home and eating boring microwave meals instead? No, Vancouver has too much to offer and that is why I have some awesome deals for you here!

Several websites offer temporary deals for dinner in Vancouver. The Red Flag Deals offers mainly fast food deals for the known chains, such as Pizza Hut, KFC, A&W or Tim Hortons. You might think it is already cheap, but why not saving more when it is that easy?!

Groupon is another website for deals. At the moment, you can buy a voucher for two fatburgers with fries for only $16 instead of $25. Groupon offers even more than food deals, such as discounted tickets. Check out their website and score a good deal!

Now, let’s have a look at the website Socialshopper. Currently, they offer a fancy cup sushi and burritos for two people for only $15. Not only does Socialshoppper offer discounts in the category food, but also in others and some are even valid in other cities than Vancouver.

Last, but not least, there is our well-known pub The Met at 320 Abbott Street, for the most of you known as “the karaoke bar”. The happy hours are daily from 7-10pm and late night when you can get a tall can of beer for $3.69 or wine and shots for only $3.

I am sure we will try out the last deal tonight, but before, it is time for some Bingo at The Lamplighter. See you there!

Review: Pub Night @ The Famous Warehouse

Yesterday we had another great pub night. This time we went to The Famous Warehouse. We had to wait a little in front of the entrance before we could get seated but it didn’t really matter… there’s always something happening in the streets of Vancouver, always some entertaining people to watch.

The food at the restaurant was ok and definitely not bad for the price of 4.95$. And the beers weren’t bad either. But one dish wasn’t enough for most of us, so we just ordered another… always curious to try how the next dish was going to taste. Soo, because all of our dishes were added to one receipt, the receipt almost looked like Santa’s long list of gifts to give to the children… or just a very expensive night out. But of course we payed separately. And even though most of us had more than one dish it wasn’t really that expensive.

This was also a pub night to welcome our new Internex pr-intern Sophie. Some of you already know her since she has been staying in Vancouver for about six weeks already. Anyway, hope you’ll also give a great welcome to our next pub night. And of course this pub night was also a little celebration of my (Henrik) birthday.

Thanks a lot to all you you guys who showed up. Looking forward to see you for our next pub night!

Latin Dinner Preview

Last Friday we went with a group of 17 people to the Latin Dinner at La Casita on West Cordova street.

The restaurant was packed when we came and we were seated in the basement, which was really cozy. We had a table which is normally for 14 people, so we had to squeeze together, but still we had enough space to move without hitting each other. The nice thing about sitting so closely is that you do not have to yell over the whole table to talk to someone.

We started the night with ordering some nice drinks such as, Sangrias, Margaritas, Ciders and beers. After our first round of drinks it was time to order our food. The menu offered; burritos, tacos, enchiladas, flautas and many more. Mostly you could then choose for beef, chicken or fish. Of course also for our veggies there was an option, the veggie enchiladas. 

It took the kitchen crew around 10 minutes and than our food was served, which is pretty fast. The plates looked all delicious and were filling. We even got a free round of tortilla and with two sauces. After everyone managed to eat their food without spilling it was time for our last round of drinks. The German/Belgium girls ordered a Super Margarita for three persons which came in a pretty big glass!

We ended our night and some of us headed towards their homes and others to the Cambie for an after drink, which ended up in more after after drinks.

We hoped you all enjoyed the dinner and that you will join us for our Pub Night on Wednesday. We will tell you tomorrow in which pub we will meet this time.

What to do for dinner…

Who doesn’t love a good dinner once in a while? And if you can just enjoy it without cooking it up yourself – even better, right? So this year’s Dine Out Vancouver Festival is exactly right for you.

Dine Out Vancouver 2014 runs from January 17 – February 2, 2014.

The whole thing is a promotion idea for Vancouver restaurants which want to launch new menus and new dinner ideas. And the customers get to do the test driving!

The participating restaurants offer three-course menus from $18 to $38 per person and since this festival takes part throughout the city, it is the perfect chance for you to dine out in a different neighborhood than usual. And it’s really easy to make a reservation. Just visit their website, look up the menus and make your choice online (starting January 5).

Have fun imagining the endless creative yummy possibilities 🙂

INTERNeX Canada: Smart Saver Vancouver

Moving to an office located in a mall  can be an advantage for example when you find very nice restaurants and deals. (I know is pretty hard not to buy anything when you love to shop or so), but today I’m gonna tell you about a few interesting things I’ve found in Tinseltown – International Village.

It’s true that we have inside of Tinseltown a lot of cheap places where you can eat a huge variety of food: from Chinese to Mexican, all of them cheap and nice food but there are a few places that I specially recommend.

The first one is for lovers of Asian food: There is a restaurant called “Zen Kenit” in the second floor , where you can get a “all you can eat lunch” for $9.95. (This all you can eat mixes Asian cuisine, for example Chinese, and also Sushi) For the price the quality is really good, so it’s forth it !!

But if you don’t like Asian cuisine, I’ve found  another interesting offer for you. Quite close to the first Asian restaurant that I’ve told you there is a Mexican one called “TacoTime“.

In this nice restaurant every Tuesday the taco costs just $0.99 (You can choose between taco meat, or a veggie one). I’m pretty sure that this deal in unbeatable.

I hope you can try these amazing restaurants, and I wish you a great week!

Best,

Mercedes
