Save on Meats
Come in we're friendly reads a sign at the front of Save on Meats. A greeting so simple, one might hardly register it as they pass through the restaurant's stainless-steel entryway. But it speaks volumes about what's happening inside. There's a diner there, sure, but for nearly 50 years SOM has worked to serve their patrons much more than just poutine hash. Read on to learn more about the company's commitments to:
History. The same neon pig has been flying over SOM since 1957, back when Hastings Street was a veritable stellar stream of neon lights. (It's so beloved, in fact, that it was grandfathered into the anti-neon laws Vancouver later enacted.) But inside this centenarian building, it's beef, not pork, that gives visitors a taste of the past—the kitchen takes great pride in its burgers, which are inspired by those served during SOM's early days as a butcher/sandwich shop.
Community. SOM was the country's first diner certified by the B Corporation, an organization that recognizes socially conscious businesses. SOM earned this status largely through its Token Program: patrons buy tokens to pass on to people in need, who can then redeem them for SOM breakfast sandwiches or clothing at area secondhand shops. By encouraging interaction among locals of all economic stations—and donating funds and meals to several non-profits—SOM hopes to make a global example of the Vancouver community.
Food security. Both in the butcher shop and the diner, SOM's all about ingredient transparency. House-made sausages studded with apples or cranberries, 40-day aged, grass-fed beef, desserts baked in-house, and Grade-A eggs are just a few of the high-quality foods served here.
