DDD in Van

vandan Aug 25, 2011 05:37 PM

Guy Fieri in town filming first ever international edition of 3D , was at Save on Meats today and The Red Wagon as well, he was also up on Cambie presumably at Peaceful

    Perhaps Hilltop Cafe Diner in Langley is more Guy's thing:


    Or the pulled-pork pancakes and flatline burger at Hogshack Cookhouse:

      I was thinking also of Fraser Park which I know is a favourite amongst a number popular food bloggers. The portions look pretty substantial. I have never been.

      I wonder how many places in Greater Vanc. provide that gluttony quotient typical of the places Guy visits on his shows ?

        I was thinking the same thing...

        Tomahawk is about the only place I can think of.

          as for huge portions there is nowhere on earth like the states, just look at the difference in food costs

            Blame the food cartels, I mean marketing boards, for that.

            OTOH, it's great that Triple D is coming to Vancouver. Can't wait to see what Guy finds here.

          Deacon's Corner would qualify. Don't know if they have enough interesting stuff, but their portion-sizes are serious business.

          I just ate a place in SF that he visited called Dottie's. The portions weren't extreme, but the food was amazing. Chili-cheese cornbread with jalepeno jelly.....my mouth just started watering.

            Interesting. I've found that the portion sizes at Deacon's have decreased substantially since opening as the prices went up. And when we ate at Dottie's I thought the portions were off puttingly large and the food just okay, even the vaunted corn bread. Off day, maybe, but I wouldn't wait in line for it again (not even the relatively short wait we had).

              Wow -- I didn't think my Dottie's breakfast was too big at all. I was staying around the corner from there last weekend and lined up @ 7:15 am for the 7:30 open. I didn't actually know it had appeared on his show until afterwards. I thought the cornbread was good -- but it needed the jelly to make it special, which I thought it was.

          Dang !! The one day this week I had to be out in the 'burbs for work :-(

          Any knowledge if he'll be at other places in town ?

          Hope he hits the food trucks too.

            no i think they keep that on then down low, but you can always follow him on twitter for clues i guess

              I saw a tweet confirming he was at Peaceful. Now I suppose I'm going to have to start taping that show till the ep airs... to echo one of our stalwarts here, I hope he made it to the Argo. I've been three times in the last three weeks, and it qualifies for two of the Ds, in a good way :-).

                  I was wondering if the Argo was part of the itinerary too. It better be. I heard he went to North Van too....presuming it was to go to the Tomahawk.

                    They apparently went to the Argo.

                        Not that tight lipped. Twitter can sink ships.

                            I heard about the Argo from someone second hand. Reliable source though!

                              (For the record, I don't watch the show).
