Vancouver: Edible Canada at the Market

:Granville Island:

Had a little Toronto love on the weekend and more to come in a week. Can't. Hardly. Wait.

One of the must-dos on any Vancouver tourist's agenda is Granville island. Not because it's spectacular or unique, but simply because it's quintessential Vancity - a lively market place surrounded by water. Boasting fresh produce, flowers, eclectic eats and random finds all against a backdrop of BC waters and mountains.

I took the matriarch of M&M for a little sightseeing and lunch.

Edible Canada is an easy spot to grab any bite - brunch, lunch or dinner. They call it a bistro. I wouldn't call it a bistro. I don't know why. But I wouldn't.

The best dish at Edible? Their duck poutine ($16): Cast iron pan, freshly fried fries, copious amounts of duck, cheese and two fried eggs.

We also shared the boar bacon cheddar burger ($17). It was good. Nothing spectacular but nothing amiss. All in all a good burger with a good bite.

The open kitchen and adjacent market make Edible a great place to take anyone visiting. It's great sensory stimulation. Don't forget, eat at the resto and get 10 percent off their store. Wonder if that works on Earnest ice cream? Because they sell it and you know I'm obsessed with it.

Double duty duck. Being rewarded for eating poutine deliciousness? Don't mind if I do.
