526 Abbott Street, Vancouver
Advice: Located at Tinseltown, close to GM Place and BC Place. If you are having any of the three Poutine dishes share with your friends.
If you are looking for a place to get some food and drink before or after a game or for an after-work get together, then a visit to nearby Pivo is well worth it! I had lunch there with a couple of friends who shared my starters with me as there was no way I was going to be able to eat all of the rings and poutine on my own. To begin, we had the huge Onion Rings ($5) thick cut onion rings, coated with a crispy buttermilk batter served with paprika aioli or mustard on the side. Then the large bowl of hearty Italian Poutine ($8) Kennebec fries, fresh tomato and garlic sauce, basil and mozzarella.

I then enjoyed the Blackened White Fish Sandwich ($13) fresh baguette, lemon mayonnaise, lettuce, tomato, crispy capers and a side of salad; while my friend had the Aged Cheddar Perogies ($8) pan-fried with pancetta and onions.
For dessert we all shared the Banana Bread and Chocolate Pudding ($6) baked banana bread, chocolate and spices, served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce. They have a stellar beer list including top notch local and international beers on tap as well as by the bottle, wine and cocktails round out the liquid refreshments. I love the modern room with the comfortable seating and the big screen for watching the sporting events!
