WildTale Coastal Grill
1079 Mainland, Vancouver, BC
Seafood Restaurant · Yaletown
WildTale Coastal Grill features fresh seafood as well as favorites from farm and field. Great wines, delicious local beers and refreshing, creative cocktails in a polished yet relaxed room.
Secret Menu Item: Ask for the chocolate mousse – it’s not on the menu but it’s to die for.
2. Hubbub Sandwiches
859 Hornby St (btwn Robson & Smithe), Vancouver, BC
One of my favorite healthy spots to grab an amazing salad, sandwich or create one of their signature salad bowls. Perfect spot to grab some lunch when you’re in-between meetings and on a health kick!
Secret Menu Item: Homemade cookies (available at lunchtime) TRUST! These are literally served from heaven.
3. Nicli Pizzeria
62 East Cordova Street, Vancouver, BC V6A 1K2
Nicli is one of my favorite pizza spots hands down. With a beautiful artisan pizza oven in plain view, beautiful herbs outlining the kitchen, fun pizza scissors to cut your pies and some pretty amazing servers/environment.
Secret Menu Item: Flip the menu and you will find the heavenly secret pizza – “The Sneaky Devil” With a Parmesaro base, buffalo mozzarella, green chilis, sopressata, and fresh arugula. Amaaaazing!
4. The Diamond Lounge
6 Powell St (btwn Carrall & Columbia), Vancouver, BC
This cozy little lounge gives off a New York city vintage vibe and serves up some pretty amazing drinks.
Secret Menu item: Ask for the off menu mint julep. It comes in a traditional pewter cup and packs a punch. This will seriously become your new favorite drink, but shhhhh!
5. YEW seafood + bar
791 W Georgia St (Howe & Granville), Vancouver, BC
premium sustainable seafood in the heart of downtown Vancouver. Delivering award-winning cuisine, fresh catches, great wines, innovative cocktails and a fun, welcoming environment.
Secret Menu item: The Ceviche was once on the menu but has been retired. It’s still the perfect appetizer to share or as a nice light snack. Ask and they’ll make it for you
6. Gotham Steakhouse & Cocktail Bar
615 Seymour St. (between Dunsmuir & W Georgia), Vancouver, BC
Secret Menu Item: Ask for the cheese bread.. It’s not on the menu but you can order it, out of this world!
7. The Parlour Pizza
1011 Hamilton St, Vancouver, BC V6B 5T4
When you’ve had a LONG week and don’t want to be judged for diving into 3 drinks without thinking, we have the perfect recommendation. A lot of people are unaware, but the Parlour Pizza has a pretty kick ass punch bowl.
Secret Menu Item: They currently serve four of the punch bowls with a pricetag of $80. Pink Flamingo has grey goose cherry, pink prosecco, flamingo tea, and maraschino cherries.
My second favorite is the Shanghai Surprise – consisting of delicious ginger pear syrup, tequila, fresh basil, strawberries and zesty fresh lemon.
9. Starbucks Coffee
(all around Vancouver!)
When you open your snapchat and see one of the hair goddesses to the Kardashians post a secret menu item, you obviously have to try it out. Bible, best drink hack ever.
Secret Menu item: This concoction involves the addition of one shot of Espresso into a Chai Latte. To make it extra healthy, ask for a dirt chai with almond milk and half sweet. Enjoy!
Now go out there and try some of these hacks, we’ll keep it our little secret. xoxo
