With the 2016 CFL season kicking off this month, BC Place and BC Lions have introduced a variety of new food and beverage selections for their fans as they know food and the big game are important for the visitors.
Centerplate’s culinary team has been working hard to put together new food options to impress guests. The menu was created by award-winning chef – Will Tse.
Beast on Fire
Beast on Fire is a new stand that is a gourmet deli-style kitchen serving up made-to-order sandwiches prepared right in front of you. You can find them in Sections 217 and 237.
This vegetarian option has tofu, edamame, lima beans, corn, butternut squash, mushrooms, sweet onions and a ginger sauce.
Smoky Pulled Pork Sandwich
It has slow-roasted and tender pulled pork with a Sriracha BBQ sauce, marinated slaw between two buns. It is paired with crisp potato chips.
The in-house made chicken sausage has sundried tomato pesto, and mozzarella cheese. It is served in a soft hot dog bun and then topped with chive aioli and arugula.
Slow Roasted Prime Rib
This was my favourite item on the menu. It has the prime rib marinated in fresh herbs, garlic, horseradish mayo and stewed onions between 2 soft buns.
The prime ribs is super tender and flavourful.
They also have beef jerky that has been marinated, smoked and dried inside BC Place.
New Items at BC Place Concession stands
Foot Long Hotdog
This classic game food has a foot-long sausage with house made chili, cheddar cheese, bacon bits and crispy onions.
You can find this at Dawson’s Hot Dogs in Sections 201, 214, 227, 233, 241, and 249.
“Big Event” Burger
This monstrous triple-patty burger has 6 strips of Applewood-smoked bacon, 3 slices of cheese, special sauces, lettuce, tomato and onion. For me it was a bit too much to handle as the patties are huge. If you have a large appetite, this might be for you.
You can find this at the Lionsgate Grill in Sections 206, 215, 242, and 254.
Sriracha Chicken Poutine
It has tender morsels of chicken in a secret recipe of red wine chicken gravy with Sriracha, sweet onions and roasted garlic. I really enjoyed the poutine and that gravy is pretty awesome.
They also have braised pork belly poutine, popcorn chicken poutine and butter chicken poutine.
You can find these at The Poutinerie in Sections 212 and 239.
It has crisp cod with a marinated slaw, spiced tartar sauce and pico de gallo in a corn and wheat tortilla. The fish was crisp and had a food amount of tang to balance out the flavours.
They also have Crispy Halibut Tacos and Shrimp Tacos.
You can find this at Steveston’s Fish & Chips in Section 244.
