Pourhouse (Gastown)

So, I’ve been to Pourhouse a few times but never wrote about it. Weird, huh? And it’s so close to my office. The first time I came here was for drinks with my good friend Jason Sanders and recently I went there for lunch with my good friend Degan Walters. Degan is, like me, a food writer and thus, when she says something is good, I listen.

We both ordered their special for lunch (sandwich, a side and a beer for $14, which I find is really great value for your money). Neither of us felt like alcohol, so I ordered a soft drink (which was refilled at no charge) and the meatloaf sandwich (which I also ordered without cheese – so sue me). Loved the meatloaf, which was juicy without being overly spiced up. The bun could be a little bit less toasted, but overall, a delicious lunch that then Degan and I had to walk off, because despite the apparent size, it’s actually bigger than you think.

Overall, a nice find in my area for lunch, though I know that many people may like it for drinks. I’ll definitely come back at some point for dinner. More relevant to me was to have the opportunity to catch up with Degan, someone who is a loved friend of mine but we rarely have enough time to hang out!

This sandwich look really delicious. But in Slovenia (Europe), $14 for a sandwich and a Beer is 2 times more then we pay here. But I doubt that sandwich here is that good as sandwich in my country.

Sounds pretty expensive to me too – but fantastic!

well, it’s pretty expensive. I thought it would be around $ 8-10
