Where in Vancouver can you get some good happy hour food after work? One of my go-to locations is The Flying Pig. They have a special chalk board menu with what is available for Appy Hour. It runs daily from 4 – 6pm. They also have another location in Yaletown.
When we were there, you can choose from:
- Salmon Sampler
- Beef and Bresaola Salad
- Short Rib Croquettes
- Truffle Mac and Cheese
- Steamed Clams
- Artisan Cured Meats
- Halibut Poppers
- Beef Carpaccio
All these items are either $5 or $6. The menu does change once in a while, but there is always something good on the menu.
Do note that your whole party has to arrive or else they will not be able to seat you. It’s a bit annoying since there is always bound to be someone in your party that is late.
A bunch of us come here after work for a few bites and drinks.
Beef Carpaccio ($6) is topped with an aioli sauce, arugula, cheese, crostini, capers and garlic. It was ok, but it was missing something acidic to bring the flavours together.
Halibut Poppers ($6) were yummy. It was tender and flavourful on the inside and the outside was nice and fried.
Truffle mac and Cheese ($5) is extra gooey and sinfully delicious! You can’t go wrong with cheese.
Pinot Gris ($7.75) comes from Calona Vineyards from the Okanagan Valley in BC. A nice choice of wine for a hot summers day to go with appetizers.
Overall, we had a great time after work. All the finger food was perfect.
