Save-On-Meats

For over 50 years Save-On-Meats was a fixture in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside. When original owner Al DesLauriers retired in 2009, the building was renovated & reopened as a modern diner and butchershop under the same name. It was the first Canadian eatery to be visited by that Guy. New owner Mark Brand gave a passionate TED talk last year about the ups and downs he experienced integrating with the low income community. Their latest initiative is a controversial breakfast sandwich token that patrons can purchase and distribute to hungry neighbourhood residents.

Serving over 400,000 businesses, the "Wal-Mart of Food Service" has all the bases covered, from "Unique 3-D technology gives you the look and texture of a solid muscle chicken breast, at a fraction of the cost" to more gourmet offerings.

Diner Diaries

Roadside Online. A blog about Diners.
posted by dchase on Jul 29, 2004 - 5 comments

With the relentless march of the franchises on one hand, and the onslaught of health-conciousness and fad food on the other, that venerable culinary institution, the neighborhood greasy spoon, is becoming an endangered species. Well, fear not, Roadfood.com is the web resource for those of us who like our food drippin' with grease, smothered with chili and served in an unpretentious enviornment. two of my local faves are there, along with mouthwatering pictures of their specialties. I'm sure your local house of grease is featured as well.[warning: will induce major muchies.]

Zippy's Pal Bites The Dust

Zippy's Pal Bites The Dust Anyone who reads Bill Griffith's Zippy the Pinhead comic strip will instantly recognize the Doggie Diner statue, which was toppled over by high winds on Sunday. Many SF folks love the statue as a kitsch cult icon even without the Zippy association, but I only knew of it through the strip.
