Smart Saver Vancouver

It’s time for the Smart Saver again and this time I would like to give you a few cheap options for my favourite activity; eating.

Bon’s Off Broadway
If you partied a little too hard at PuB NiGHT you might want to get a good breakfast to come back to life. A cheap place to go is Bon’s Off Broadway. Here you can have breakfast and brunch for only $2.95. Obviously you shouldn’t expect a 5-star restaurant for those prices, but the food is actually pretty good. They are located on 2451 Nanaimo Street and are open Monday – Friday from 7:00 AM till 8:00 PM and Saturday and Sunday from 8:00 AM till 8:00 PM.

Hi-Five
A great place to get lunch if you’re in Gastown is Hi-Five. They make a few different grilled cheeses varying from $3 to $6. However, they are only open on Thursday from 6:00 PM till midnight and Friday and Saturday from 8:00 PM till 2:00 AM.

Gringo
If you like tacos Gringo is the place for you. This cool, upbeat and very colourful taco bar is located in Gastown and their prices start at $2.75 per taco and $3.75 for a Lager or Pale Ale.

Tacotime
Another option for tacos is going to Tacotime. This fast food like restaurant for tacos has four locations in downtown and serves tacos, burritos and a few other dishes. There is also the option to make your dish a meal. You can find one of these in the food court right next to our office.18516328_1752580871424023_1394152612_n

The Hastings Warehouse / The Famous Warehouse / The Capital
These are the places where the dishes are only $5 each. The menus are all quite similar and even though it’s only 5 dollar, the food is pretty good. The Hastings Warehouse is located at 156 West Hastings Street, The Famous Warehouse at 989 Granville Street and The Capital on 1778 Davie Street.

Street Food Vancouver
Another great option for food is a food truck, you can find them around the city and a lot of them have really good food. A good way to find one is by using the Street Food Vancouver App. This will show you which ones are open and where you can find them.

I hope to see you all tonight at The Charles Bar!

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!

Smart Saver

This week with our smart saver, we’re going with great food again!

We all know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but for those who are not exactly early risers and don’t want to prepare their own stuff, we have found a super cheap offer. Subway is offering a $3 Breakfast Combo with a 6-inch breakfast sub and a coffee.

The Au Petit Cafe is a vietnamese restaurant, but offer $5 French-style sandwiches. Also their vietnamese food is pretty cheap. If you want to have a nice dinner with friends go to the La Taqueria. They’re offering tacos (which are awesome to share) for $2 (veggie) and $2.50 (beef). Check also out Wally’s Burger, their burgers are great, and huge! And the Deluxe Wally Burger, Wally Burger and Mushroom Swiss Burger are all $5 or less. But never forget the great “all food for $4.95” restaurants we have here in Vancouver. Those are the two different locations of the famous Warehouse and the dime, near Commercial Broadway. To be honest you should not eat anywhere else, their food is awesome and SO CHEAP, and they don’t only serve burgers and mac’n cheese but also healthy things from salads to quinoa. And they even make its cheaper! The dime offers 25ct wings on wednesdays (i’ve tried them, they’re delish!!) and at the famous warehouse they’re only 15ct! They also do an “all you can eat tacos tuesday” for $6.99.     So what are you waiting for?

Of course you need some refreshing dessert after this great meal. To save money why don’t you just make yourself an ice lolly out of you favourite juice or smoothy. You just need a small stick, fill your juice in a glass or even ice cube forms, put the stick in, freeze it and you have great ice cream which is nearly for free!

Hope all of you had a great weekend, enjoy the rest of your sunday and your day off tomorrow. You can sign up for our trip to the rockies until tuesday!

INTERNeX Canada: Smart Saver Vancouver – The Famous Warehouse!

Want cheap food, but are too lazy to cook at home? The Famous Warehouse is one of my favorite places to grab a quick bite and is often frequented by INTERNeX-ers. First of all, you can’t really go wrong with pub food.

Secondly, everything on the menu is $4.95 – burgers with fries or soup, salads, wings in many flavours, fish tacos, spaghetti with meat sauce and more! You name it and its $4.95.

Well, technically $5.54 with tax (and I know this because Irene and I just went yesterday for lunch!) and $6 with tip.

I don’t think you can do better than this, unless you go to Mcdonald’s, but that’s kind of boring and you can’t have a beer to go with your burger!

Even better on Wednesday’s, they have $0.30 wings and Tuesday is all you can eat tacos for $7!

They have decent portions and though it is not the most luxurious food, you cannot beat the price.

Seeing their original location at Granville is always, always busy with line-ups, they just recently opened a new one on Hastings. So go check it out next time you are craving some delicious greasy food and let me know what you think!
