With so many new hot spots opening in New West, I wanted to highlight a few that I’ve had the pleasure of nomming at over the past year.
- Rain City Juicery is a fantastic spot for fresh, cold-pressed juice and smoothies. Always a treat after a long stroll along the Quay.
- El Santo has exceeded my expectations by leaps and bounds. From the guacamole and salsa trios to the fresh made tortillas and everything in between, I have become a major fan of this establishment…in a big way 🙂
First and not my last time @elsantonewwest fantastic food and service. We are already planning what we'll get next time. Tonight we shared tacos (loved the beef cheeks), salsa trio and chips in salsa verde with pork belly. Sangria went down nicely and the real treat was the chili hot chocolate marshallows from @whippedsweets that came with the bill. Really enjoyable experience, a definite must try. And the kicker is you get to enter your bill at the @downtownnewwest #shopforswag contest box at #hyacksquare 👍 #newwestminster #newwest #downtownnewwest #madeinnewwest
- When I heard Chopped Leaf was coming to New West I literally squealed. Having healthy and fast options is always nice…especially with McDonald’s just a few doors down 😉
- Big Star Sandwich Company isn’t a New Kid on the Block, but for me they are. I never had the pleasure of trying them out when they were located on 12th Avenue, but once their new location opened on Columbia and I heard that hickory sticks was a topping option, you couldn’t keep me away. 14 hour slow-cooked beef, fresh-baked filones and hand-pulled roast turkey make for some amazing sandwiches.
Finally got to stop by @bigstarsandwichnw and man did we love our #sandwiches he got the roast beef with cheese, hickory sticks and mack sauce minus the lettuce, onions and pickles. I inhaled my turkey, home-made stuffing, cranberry and mayo sandwich. The bread was soft and toppings fresh 😍 #newwestminster #newwest @downtownnewwest @bigstarsandwich
