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.
