Local catering company Cocktails & Canapés has created some special lunch boxes to enjoy during this years cherry blossom festival. As spring begins this week, the blossoming of the cherry blossoms will take place over the next few weeks. The festival is featuring many events to celebrate which you can find here.
I enjoyed the Sakura V (Vegetarian & Gluten-Free) box that was delivered to me for lunch recently, I chose the Sakura as I was curious to try the vegetarian offering and it was the perfect healthy option for me that day.
You can see the different lunch box options here along with optional extra menu items of which includes the addictive tasty Handmade toasted black and white sesame caramel corn.
One of the highlights this year, is the Sakura Night Gala on April 2nd at the Stanley Park Pavilion that features eight of Vancouver’s top local restaurants through an exquisite evening of Asian-fusion flavours. Participating eateries include Ancora Waterfront Dining + Patio, Bella Gelateria, Benkei Ramen, Hapa Izakaya, Masayoshi, Prestons Restaurant & Lounge, Zakkushi, and Zen Japanese Restaurant.
The following weekend features the Sakura Days Japan Fair at Vandusen Gardens with fun activities for the whole family.
With the many fun and tasty activities happening around the city during this years cherry blossom festival, make sure you take part in one way or another and enjoy this spectacle that ads to the beauty of our city.
