One of the top things that Latin American Canadians miss from home is the food. We are so lucky here in Vancouver to have some many inspirational Latinos that have brought their favourite recipes with them to Canada and shared them with Vancouver, dishing up a plate full of passion.

Throughout the week of June 28-July 6, participating restaurants will offer special tasting menus at a special price to allow diners a great combo of the restaurants best flavours.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to be part of a culinary festival of Latin American flavours. Vancouver Foodster is proud to be sponsor of this exciting event that will put a focus on Latin American cuisine.
