In March of 2014, Vancouver institution Solly?s Bagelry celebrated its 20th year of serving its signature Brooklyn-style bagels. In honor of the anniversary, we spoke with the founder and current owner Leah Markovitch about how she kept true to her grandmother's traditional recipes over the course of two decades. Bohemian Spirit Solly?s Bagelry exudes a homespun charm. Markovitch describes the delis as places where people could feel comfortable kicking off their shoes and relaxing. The antique furniture, mismatched sets of chairs, and soundtracks of old jazz and Jewish songs exemplify Solly?s Bagelry's laid-back and nostalgic spirit. What's Not To Like? Markovitch grew up baking and cooking alongside her grandmother, who taught her to create traditional Old-Country meals with simple but flavorful ingredients. When faced with an unfamiliar dish, Markovitch would ask her grandmother, "Will I like this?", and she invariably received the same response: "What's not to like?" Solly?s Bagelry continues to use many of Markovitch's grandmother's generations-old recipes today, making everything from challah to knishes from scratch. None of the dishes can be considered haute cuisine or upscale street foods, but they emphatically aren't meant to. Instead, Markovitch says that her grandmother's family recipes showcase the sort of flavors that can only come from rustic, traditional home cooking. "What's not to like?" now serves as a slogan at Solly?s Bagelry. The Bagels Taking inspiration from the Jewish delis of Brooklyn, Solly?s Bagelry boils and hand-rolls more than a dozen styles of bagels, which move straight from the deck ovens to the display cases. This style of bagel is famous for its texture, which is noticeably chewier than many deli or caf? bagels. Although they might seem different at first, Markovitch recommends trying one of these signature creations "if you want to taste tradition." Artistic License Markovitch recognizes how fortunate she is to have access to butter, chocolate, and other ingredients that would have been considered luxurious delicacies for past generations of Eastern Europeans. She uses these ingredients to add richer and heartier flavors to certain creations, and she even takes a bit of artistic license by creating inventive items, such as samosa knishes and chocolate matzah. However, she is quick to point out that, even when experimenting, Solly?s Bagelry never strays too far from the original recipes, and tradition is still the baseline. Some of the items' flavors may have changed a bit, but Markovitch says, "there's not too much that my grandmother would be surprised at."

Primo's Mexican Grill—one of Vancouver’s oldest Mexican restaurants—bustles with chefs whipping up hearty platefuls of authentic Mexican fare forged from family recipes. Patrons dine surrounded by rust-red walls dappled with 50 years worth of old photos snapped since the restaurant’s founding in 1959 by former B.C. Lion Primo Villanueva. Under the helm of Joel and Jensen, the third generation of Villanuevas to preside over the lively kitchen, culinary wizards architect zing-infused eats using mouthwatering ingredients including fresh mango, San Francisco Bay shrimp, and fresh pico de gallo salsa. The lunch and dinner menus brim with traditional dishes including fajitas and quesadillas alongside modern tapas dishes that encourage patrons to exercise their kindergarten-taught sharing skills or squirrel-taught hoarding skills. To further bolster the restaurant’s casual south-of-the-border atmosphere, eaters break bread in a dining room replete with decor including a leaping faux swordfish and a painted bison skull. A fleet of high-definition TVs perch above the bar, transmitting sports games for the grateful eyes of attentive customers.

The kitchen at JR Taste of Ceylon is awash in an olfactory symphony of fragrant spices, the simmering warmth of hot red peppers tempered by the sweetness of ginger and the gentle perfume of cardamom. Employing the traditional Sri Lankan practice of fast roasting spices before grinding them, chefs use these rich seasonings to coax forth the nuanced flavours of Sri Lankan and South Indian cuisine. They carefully steam black lentil idli cakes and bake batches of rice shrouded in banana leaves to create meaty lamprias. Though many menu items feature tender beef, mutton, or fish, chefs furnish vegetarian diners with rice- and lentil-based dosa crepes with veggies, sambar, and chutney. After placing the finishing touches on each dish, chefs dispatch them to tables where diners partake in family-style dining by scooping servings onto their own plate and passive-aggressively asking their sibling to pass the salt. While diners are welcome to use cutlery, they can also adhere to Sri Lankan customs by eating with only their right hand.

Cannibal Café's aged, hand-ground Black Angus beef patties pack a flavour that the Vancouver's Best Burger blog described as "[hitting] your mouth like a mosh-pit." And mosh pit is an accurate image—the restaurant exudes a punk-rock vibe with vintage '90s rock 'n' roll posters that paper the walls, honouring bands such as Violent Femmes, Queen, and Devo. Two beef patties serve as the foundation for the classic burger, which patrons can customize with anything from a fried egg and an avocado slice to basil pesto, Canadian cheddar, and old-style bacon. Specialties include the Montreal smoked-brisket burger, with sauerkraut, swiss cheese, russian dressing, gherkins, and garlic on a brioche bun. Vegetarian patties are available for people who love punk rock but hate its endorsement of cow tipping. For drinks, Cannibal Café offers signature milkshakes and Jones Soda Co. pop along with 12 beers and 4 wines on tap.

With a menu that introduces traditional Italian fare to a modern culinary sensibility, Adesso Bistro's chefs have garnered acclaim from a host of publications including the Vancouver Courier and the Globe and Mail. "Adesso" translates to "now" in Italian, symbolizing the culinary artisans' commitment to turning fresh locally sourced and organic ingredients into vibrant plates that carry the flavours of Italy's northwestern coastal region Liguria. Known for its capital city of Genoa, the seafood-loving region is dotted with small towns that produce dynamic takes on Italian staples such as foccaccia, pesto, and calamari. Adesso's owners line its facade with lush vegetation and accent the dining room with dark wood tables and chairs. Servers bring imported and local wines to tables dotting the outdoor patio among neatly trimmed bushes and the sweet sounds of the eatery's three squirrel tenors.

After noshing on appetizers and salads, visitors can feast upon expertly seared steak, fresh seafood entrees, heaping portions of pasta, and pazookies.

The restaurant also serves a weekend brunch with dishes such as eggs benedict and a half-pound "morning after" burger. Hub Restaurant's locations surround cozy tables and booths with HD TVs broadcasting the latest sporting events and men?s deodorant commercials. Behind the well-stocked bars, bartenders pour craft beer and mix up classic cocktails.
