Meet up Group
We meet a group of friends once a month to chat about social media and try out some new restaurants at the same time. We rotate neighbourhoods between Downtown/Gastown, North Van and Burnaby because that it where we all live (sorry Randall we never go to Surrey). This Saturday we decided to try BBQs in Yaletown only to find it closed for renovations on our arrival so we headed next door to the Phat Deli or Phat Sports Bar (it seemed to have two names).

Yaletown Dining
It was not our first choice for lunch but turned out to be a good choice anyway. We sat outside on the heated covered patio. It was a bit chilly but there were blankets and it was nice to be out in the sunshine. Our server was decent and the menu had a good selection of breakfast and lunch items. The Phat menu also features Montreal Smoked Meat flown in from Montreal which Jeff ordered. Each of the five of us ordered something different so we got to see quite a few menu items and all of the food was pretty good. The items were a bit on the pricey side but the restaurant is in Yaletown so that is not a surprise.

 Chili Cheese Fries – Phat Fries (Not Skinny) with chill, cheese and  onions – $8.99 

Montreal Smoked Meat on Rye with your choice of regular or hot mustard served with dill pickles. This is the Skinny version for $7.99. There is a Phat version for $9.99.

Tuna Melt – Tuna Salad, Cheddar and Mozzarella Cheese – $9.99. The menu said that this was served on a bagel but it came served on toast. The toast was a bit dry and could have used some mayo or sauce of some kind.

Beef Dip on a Baguette served with Horseradish Mayo & Au Jus – $10.99. 

Baby Back Ribs with Forty Creek BBQ Whiskey Sauce served with Garlic Fries & Coleslaw  – $19.99

Angus Beef Sliders with Caramelized onions, Irish Guinness Cheddar Garlic Mayo & BBQ Sauce – $10.99 and Poutine – $6.95. The sliders were a big portion – 4 instead of the usual 3.

Please send us your feedback on this or other restaurants we have written about.
