Without further ado, here are four hidden gems to check out on your next charcuterie date in Vancouver.
VV Tapas Lounge
This quaint spot in East Vancouver is known for its small plates and custom charcuterie spreads. You can build your very own board by picking a variety of meats and cheeses, which includes everything from complex, sharp cheddar to even plant-based meats. Plus, each charcuterie platter comes with house-made pickles, nuts, olives, condiments, and warm bread!
Jules Bistro is the place to go if you’re looking for more of an elevated and unique charcuterie board experience. The restaurant has seven different platters to pick and choose from. You can find options like assorted meats and cheeses, vegan platters, and even some very extravagant ocean-inspired boards. If you’re a seafood lover, check out the “Raw Board” — it comes with oysters, caviar (yes, you read that right, caviar), tuna tartar, scallops, sashimi, and salmon roe.
La Fabrique St-George Winery
This cozy wine bar in the heart of Vancouver is all about its BC-born wines and market-style foods. This is the ultimate spot to grab a glass of wine (or a flight) and pick out some fresh bread, stuffed olives, and tasty cheeses. Enjoying charcuterie inside of La Fabrique St-George Winery is like having a picnic indoors, which is the perfect way to spend a rainy day!
If you’re looking for a taste of France in a charcuterie board, Chambar is your go-to spot. The “Les Charcuteries” will completely transport you to Paris with its selection of cured meats, chicken liver paté, piccalilli, and grilled sourdough — no flight needed.
