Join us and explore the Coquitlam area (centered around the skytrain line between Lincoln station South towards downtown) and tantalize your taste buds at selection of restaurants and cafes. This evening tasting extravaganza is on Wednesday March 14 from 6pm until 10pm and is presented by Vancouver Foodster.
Each restaurant/cafe will be serving up Tasting Plates and Tasting Cups for guests to enjoy and you will have a chance to visit many different types of restaurants throughout the event, meet some new food loving friends, meet the chefs, and learn about each of the participating restaurants.
If you haven’t been to our previous Tasting Plates events that have been running since 2011, Novus TV featured one of our previous events on City Lights (view here).

1196 Pinetree Way, Unit 100, Coquitlam
PappaRoti – the buttery, coffee-caramel coated “father of all buns” that first took Malaysia by storm in 2003 and has since opened over 400 café locations worldwide – and is now developing throughout Canada.
Our coffee buns are freshly baked every 20 minutes in our stores, which attract people of all nationalities and age groups. Light enough to pass off as a snack rather than a meal, these delicious coffee-caramel buns are soft and fluffy, with a crispy top layering of coffee caramel, served alone or in combination with our various signature hot and cold beverages.
In addition to the coffee buns Papparoti is also proud to pronounce its new product offering the Pappa Rollie a soft and flaky croissant like texture pastry with Kaya (young coconut filling jam) inside – this item is a sure win amongst all our customers!
Seoul Truck Street Food
Henderson Place Mall

It’s all about Korean snacks at this food court eatery inside the Henderson Place Mall, with a very cool decor of an actual food truck. This ‘food truck’ is one that never leaves it’s spot, and it sure is the highlight of this Asian oriented food court.
