4 New Places to Eat in Kitsilano


1. Kinome Japanese Kitchen
Authentic Japanese hideaway on West Broadway in the old Dan spot. Focussed on small sharing plates using local, organic, and seasonal ingredients – perfect for the health-conscious Kits crowd. To try: Today’s Sashimi, Snow Crab Rice Bowl, Organic Chicken Karaage with parsley mayo, Organic Beef Tataki, and the Asakusa soba noodles. Don’t forget the sake – they have a nice list to choose from.

2. Spin
This kid-friendly, small breakfast and lunch spot, also on West Broadway, has been quietly serving juicy, organic meat burgers, fresh wraps, and healthy frittatas since late 2014. To try: Arugula Cheddar Burger. Oh and the buns are made by our favourite Plaisir Sucre bakery 🙂

3. Be Fresh Market
Urban grocery delivery service SPUD has opened up a storefront shop and cafe in the former Ploeger location on West 1st Avenue. Find local and organic produce here but also ready-made lunches, snacks, and Juice Box juices. To try: Thai Curry with Tofu, Detox Quinoa Salad with Free Range Chicken, and the Watermelon cold-pressed juice which is ideal during this heatwave.

4. Basil Pasta Bar
Near Kits Beach where Rangoon used to be on Yew Street, the value-priced Basil Pasta Bar has just opened a second location (the other is Downtown on Davie Street and doing well). To try: Pesto Shrimp Linguine or create your own from 50 different options. Most entrees are under $8 and they also deliver for a small fee.

    Spin is gone, about to be replaced by the third outpost of Thai Basil.
