Cioffi’s Meat Market & Deli in North Burnaby
The featured neighbourhood this month of February is North Burnaby. It is a large area that includes a number of smaller neighbourhoods that stretches from east to west, Boundary Road to Simon Fraser University and from north to south, Burrard Inlet to Lougheed highway. We are going to be looking at the area, along East Hastings (Boundary road to Burrard Inlet) for this month and focus on Simon Fraser and Lougheed Highway, in a separate month.
The east to west corridor along East Hastings offers a tantalizing experience. With ethnic shops and restaurants, this is the place to sample all the the world’s cultures. From Italian deli’s, Vietnamese Pho, Chinese restaurants, European bakeries, Indian restaurants, Turkish shops and food. I will be showing pictures of the different places I visit during this month, and I will tell you how to get to this places on your visit to Vancouver. So for this first post on the neighbourhood, I present Cioffi’s Meat Market & deli, located on 4142 Hastings St. This place takes you back to an old Italian deli where you have to grab a number and wait your turn in order to get a chance to partake in this delicious surroundings. Deli meat galore, and cheeses out of this world. For our trip today we purchased wine salami and cheddar white-epicure cheese. Who needs a trip to Italy, when you have this deli shop right in your neighbourhood.
