  • Solly's Bagelry
    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."

  • Yaletown Gelato
    Stuart Gross’ passion for holistic healthcare stems from personal experience. After his young son spent many months enduring eczema that had not responded to conventional treatment, Gross took him to a doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine who was able to clear the symptoms almost overnight. Gross had also been affected by the passing of his father, who died of preventable diabetes and heart disease at the age of 54, as well as the death of his father-in-law, which was a result of the side effects of the drugs he was taking for rheumatoid arthritis. Gross decided to give up his career as an auto mechanic and explore ways in which alternative therapies can heal people. He took a course in nutrition and started working in a health store. Using skills developed during his car-repair days, Gross then trained in various holistic assessment tools and equipment. Today, Gross uses his knowledge and experience at Yaletown Holistics, where he offers services including oxygen therapy and a variety of homeopathic and nutritional supplements. Gross is also an advanced practitioner in electro-acupuncture according to Voll (EAV), a German-made diagnostic device designed to reveal bodily imbalances and conditions such as food sensitivities and heavy-metal toxicity. Guests also target impurities in a cozy, private infrared sauna, which can be used in conjunction with an iPod or personal yodeler to provide relaxing music.

  • Libra Room
    At The Libra Room, if the bartender asks, "What's your sign?", it usually results in a cocktail, not a detailed presentation of your moon signs, relationship compatibility, and chances of dying in a coffee-grinding accident. The astrologically inspired restaurant creates martinis and cocktails designed specifically for each astrological sign—such as cognac and Grand Marnier for the sensitive and open Pisces and espresso vodka and white-chocolate martinis for discriminating Virgos. But The Libra Room is more than just a bar with cosmic libations. With live music seven nights a week, the music lounge and restaurant supports the local music scene, booking both budding musicians and Vancouver jazz greats such as John Korsrud, Wes Mackey, and Bruno Hubert. It also hosts major musical events, including the Vancouver Jazz Festival and New Music West festival. Along with specialty cocktails and select wines, The Libra Room serves a menu packed with burgers, pizza, and other great bites for sharing, such as mussels and cheese platters. The colourful space combines the rustic charm of exposed-brick walls and wooden tables with the eclectic charm of large lava lamps and prismatic lights that illuminate the bar.

  • La Belle Patate
    On his CTV News feature, La Belle Patate founder Mathieu Lott revealed he disdains the word "chef" and rather prefers his chosen title: Grease King. The name belies his and founder, as well as native Montrealer, Pascal Cormier's devotion to down-home cooking, a style that embraces the humble simmer of the deep-fryer over the fuss of candlelight, linens, and diamond-encrusted toothpicks. His poutine dishes inject three diner locations with classic Quebec flavour, layering hand-cut, double-cooked french fries with cheese curds and a ladle of vegetarian brown sauce. At his original venue in Victoria, Mathieu and his staff put on a sensory show for guests at all stages of their poutine prep. Once the potatoes have tumbled in an antique peeler, they are sliced in view of the tables, then cooked twice in bubbling oil. Each of the three locations attests that its never-frozen cheese curds squeak when chewed, a noise that indicates their quality and desire to be heard. The poutine menu covers creative takes on the traditional curds-and-sauce staple, including an egg-laden breakfast poutine and a Meat Lover poutine with beef, bacon, and pepperoni. The kitchen also crafts handmade burgers, Montreal smoked-meat sandwiches, and steamed hot dogs to accompany the potato mainstay.

  • Subeez
    Subeez’s team of chefs—champions of contemporary fare infused with eclectic twists—whip up familiar-yet-unique noshes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Amid an open kitchen looking on to the warmly lit dining room, culinary gurus chop and stir for an audience of eaters as they architect dishes featuring mouthwatering ingredients such as watermelon-jalapeno coulis, house-cured duck leg, and foccacia bread fresh from the oven. Alongside hearty steak frites and lamb shanks, a host of meatless fare dapples the menu and exemplifies the kitchen’s dedication to pleasing the palates of vegans, vegetarians, and visiting apatosauruses. Dexterous bar tenders concoct artful libations before launching them down the sleek wooden bar, and baristas specializing in the art of bean brewing send mugs of perfectly percolated coffee out to tables. Intent on fostering a welcoming atmosphere, attentive servers continually wend and soft-shoe through the dining room’s intimate booths and tables to ensure that each patron remains sated and free from stomach growls. To further enhance the restaurant’s sense of youthful, eclectic energy, a lineup of DJs holds court in-house on Thursday through Sunday evenings spinning sonic webs of R&B, funk, and dubstep.

  • Qoola Yogurt + Fruit
    One million probiotic cultures per gram sounds like a lot. That's the amount of the healthful stuff you'll ingest when eating frozen yogurt made from powdered mix. But when eating fro-yo made from fresh yogurt, as it's made at Qoola Frozen Yogurt Bar, you'll be consuming as many as 700 million probiotic cultures per gram. It's an astonishing increase, one that's complemented by other conscientious methods: Most of Qoola's products are fat-free, gluten-free, and certified kosher. Qoola's low-calorie concoctions helps patrons feel better about indulging a bit at the toppings bar, where they can opt for lighter scoops of fresh fruit and flax seeds, or go all-out with crumbled candy bars and chocolate sauce. As committed to the health of the planet as it is to the health of its customers, Qoola uses biodegradable, compostable, and recyclable containers and utensils, and keeps its facility bright and sparkling with energy-efficient lighting and natural cleaning supplies.
