Vancouver, BC – Salt Tasting Room
The Salt Tasting Room in Gastown serves local charcuterie and cheeses. The chalkboard in the back lists choices to make into a tasting plate. Choose three meats or three cheeses, and then three sides to accompany those choices. We were treated to some cherries from the owner’s orchard, and the general manager Mike picked out some great local wines for us to try.
We arrived when they opened, so Mike Mitchell was able to recommend some of the other best food spots in Gastown. There’s a food revival going on, and among the new stars are The Irish Heather on Carrall Street, Boneta on West Cordova, and China Town’s Bao Bei.
Salt can be found in Trounce Alley along Blood Alley Square, between Water Street and Cordova Street. It’s next to Judas Goat Taberna.
