I ordered a couple of things to try from last week’s Fresh Prep delivery. The Acorn Acorn Belgian Waffles and Nelson the Seagull Nelson the Seagull Par-baked Sourdough.
The waffles were gluten-free and vegan and really I should learn my lesson that I like the full fat and flour version.
Oh right! And we tried President’s Choice Cultured Oat Yogurt Alternative Yuzu Citrus Flavour. Also bad. We got suckered by yuzu, which is a flavour we love.
For lunch we tried Vennie’s Sub Shop for the first time. I got a hot 6” Deluxe Pizza Sub - Double stacked Roni Sheets, Double Mozza, Slivered Onion, Pickled Green Peppers, Herb Seasoning, Turbo Tomato sauce.
She peeled off several layers of pepperoni because it was too much.
I got a 12” Aftermath - Smoked Beef, Shredduce, Slivered Onion, Swiss Cheese, Herb Seasoning, Horseradish Mayo, Beer Mustard, Dill Pickles.
The beef was basically roast beef, I was sort of expecting something different. Too much bread, low on pickles, not enough horseradish.
I’ll go back and try some of the other ones.
I also took a picture of the sign in the mini strip mall on Venables at Commercial. From the top: food stop 24 hours, Deserts - Vancouver’s Falafel Oasis (now DL Chicken for like 4 years+), Venables Coin Op Laundry, Bocadillo, Vape Horizon.
Only the Food Stop is still there. And they’re on my do not shop list for over a decade.
