1903 West 4th Avenue, Vancouver
Advice: You can get half salads and sandwiches, option to add proteins to almost any dish for an extra charge.
Finding a go to spot with healthy food options that’s organic using locally grown and produced items could be a challenge sometimes. Enter Tractor offering a wide range of salads, sandwiches, soups and stews.
I lunched here recently with a friend and started with the flavourful Kale Salad ($3.25) with granny smith apples, julienned radicchio and white balsamic vinaigrette; along with the tasty Roasted Red and Yellow Beets Salad ($3.25) with green beans, pistachios, goat’s milk feta, and walnut vinnaigrette. I shared a ½ of the outstanding Beef Short Rib Sandwich ($9 whole) with Portobello mushrooms, tomato, arugula, and smoked gouda on multigrain; along with ½ of the Chicken Sandwich ($9 whole) Rossdown Farms free run organic chicken breast, tomato, fennel, basil, provolone on cranberry bread.
Next I had outstanding Braised Beef Short Rib Stew ($8) with porcini mushrooms, followed by a taste of my friends Moroccan Chicken Stew ($8) with chickpeas.
There wasn’t much of a dessert selection on the menu, though I did try some of their delicious Double Chocolate and Pistachio ($3) gluten-free cookies to end my meal.
This is a great new addition to the neighborhood for that healthy and quick lunch or snack to eat in or to go!
