Unlike neighbourhood watering holes, neighbourhood pubs provide a forum for public communion free from the threat of peckish alligators. Rub shoulders with human inhabitants with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of pub fare and drinks at Samz Neighbourhood Pub. Choose between the following locations: Port Coquitlam or Surrey.
Samz Neighbourhood Pub's lively atmosphere lures revellers with a variety of beers on tap and anchors them in place by filling their stomachs with dishes from an expansive menu of globally inspired pub grub. Ignite appetites with a hearty appetizer such as mini yorkshire puddings stuffed with prime rib and horseradish mayo ($9). Cajun caesar salad forms a savoury ensemble of chicken and prawns in Cajun sauce ($14), and a multimeat roster of burgers crowds plates with prize-fighters such as a crispy or grilled buffalo chicken burger dressed in ranch ($10). Chefs stamp palate passports for access to international entrees such as cheese-and-potato perogies ($10.50) and wor wonton soup ($11), which utilizes prawns, chicken, and vegetables to keep tongues as satisfied as Santa Claus's niece on Christmas.
Every Saturday night in Surrey and Friday night in Port Coquitlam, live DJs spin dance, rock opera, and 19th-century courtship ballads on request. At both locations, diners tipple drafts of Rickard's red under the luminous glow of flat-screen HDTVs, primed for Keno and beaming major sports action, including UFC bouts and all Vancouver Canucks slumber parties.
Samz Neighbourhood Pub
At three locations across Vancouver, Samz Neighbourhood Pub invites patrons to hobnob with friends and enjoy a menu of classic pub favourites. As TVs broadcast UFC events and Vancouver Canucks’ slumber parties, cooks dish up everything from fish ’n’ chips and chorizo mac ’n’ cheese to pierogies stuffed with cheese and potato. Among more than a dozen burgers and sandwiches, the salmon burger—stacked with tartar sauce, pickles, and onion—stands out as an uncommon option.
