Landed in Vancouver, staying with an old friend. We used to work together at the Wales Screen Commission, but he escaped to Los Angeles first, and then to Vancouver. I was starving hungry and had been craving a proper North American burger for days. Mathew suggested Vera’s, a Vancouver institution so we stopped en route to their place in English Bay.
I went for the G-Money, a double cheeseburger with fried mushrooms and a side of beer battered onion rings. They even had a charcuterie option – the addition of fried salami to top the burger. It hit the spot, just what I needed, cured those pangs for ‘proper burgers’. I’m sure there’s plenty more to come on this trip!
