Bestie restaurant - Vancouver, Canada
For a city that seems to spawn new locavore veggie joints daily, a jaunty German street food-inspired sausage house is offering Vancouverites something they can really sink their teeth into. Bestie even offers a vegan weiner along with a smoked bison version, but purists will prefer more traditional currywurst, sauerkraut and warm pretzels with gherkins. To match the vaguely 1970s Deutschland culinary vibe, the Chinatown eatery’s alpine-meets-Bauhaus feel mixes simple spruce walls with cuckoo clocks and a retro orange plastic TV playing Cold War-era sporting events. Featuring a wall with 116 holes and wooden pegs offering a moveable feast of local objets d’art, Bestie is a shoe-in for carnivorous aesthetes.
