Now You Can Go to the Market at the MARKET Restaurant in the Shangri-La Vancouver
There’s nothing quite like eating fresh, local ingredients – when tomatoes actually taste sweet and tangy and aren’t some sort of tasteless, pulpy triviality. Is there really a vitamin of some sort in those things? We aren’t sure, and so we say, “Carry on locavore movement!”
Well, the Shangri-La Vancouver Hotel is doing just that. On Sunday August 19 and September 23, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., some of British Columbia’s best local food purveyors will be on hand at the MARKET restaurant’s terrace dishing up some of the best seafood, fresh fruit, organic veggies, baked goods, jams and jellies for you to sample. There’s even local wine on hand to taste.
While you nibble on the local products and purchase some goodies to take home with you, enjoy the live music brought in to entertain.
Once you’ve tasted how good food really can be, then it’s time to sit down and have the MARKET’s market brunch (at a very reasonable $29 CAD). Using local products and ingredients supplied by the market vendors, Chef Wayne Harris has created such scrumptious delights as the slow-baked salmon with truffle mashed potatoes and snap peas, and a smoked albacore tuna Niçoise salad.
After a delightful Sunday afternoon, you can check into the Shangri-La Vancouver for about $450 CAD per night, and if that price causes you to have an upset stomach, the hotel’s Ginger Juice Bar can probably help take care of that.
