Fast-er Food Movement – An introduction

by Lauren Mote

Vancouver’s “fast-er food” scene has started to really take shape – and this couldn’t have happened at a better time. The recent economic crisis has hit disposable income hard, and because we restaurant folk are at the mere bottom of the “food chain” and rely heavily on tips for “life” it was no surprise to find some of Vancouver’s hottest restaurants almost empty, and the take-out places bustling with people and money flying across the counters. What’s the catch? Any day I would pay $4 for a nutritious lunch, and this is partly because I am cheap and partly because I feel that it really shouldn’t cost $60 for an entree.

The purpose of this story is to gradually introduce you to the side of the Vancouver “fast-er” food scene that won’t leave you feeling like the moths are eating their way through your pockets, but you’re happily full, ready to take on the rest of your day, and it’s “mostly” good for you! This will be an ongoing update, so check back often. Each month I will profile a different location.
