Paleo living it's always easy. But Vancouver's restaurant scene is not here to disappoint. From wild boar bacon to bone broth and paleo pizzas, you're never going to have to dissect a menu again. Here are all the best places to get your meat and veggies fix.
If you’re on the North Shore, we suggest you make a stop at this paleo paradise. Two Rivers’ 2,500-square-foot shop and eatery features a working butchery, a glass-walled dry-aging room, a delicatessen, a take-out counter, a 32-seat restaurant with a 16-seat patio, and, to top if all off, a liquor license. As for the food menu, we can't get enough of the Sausage Platter. Even better, you can buy a pack to take home for another day... or later.
Need a quick, paleo-friendly bite before that Canucks game? Head to Caveman Café, where they're taking fast food to the next level. This Tinseltown gem serves up paleo AND keto seed-crust pizzas, burritos with paleo-friendly wraps, zoodle pho with bone broth, and literally so much more. Did we mention they also sell bulk wholesale bread that's both paleo- and keto-approved?
As the name suggests, this downtown restaurant knows a thing or two about paleo food done right. Breakfast bites, paleo pasta, pizza, and smoothies — here, they do it all. Though, if you don't get the wild boar bacon, what's the point? Even better, everything on the menu is organic, local, and GMO-free.
Farm-to-table and pasture-to-plate, head over to Forage to experience the best of BC’s local fishers, foragers, and farmers. Indulge in fresh BC oysters, Okanagan apples, and protein-rich Turtle Valley bison. Just make sure you rally the crew — food is served family-style and as much as we love that tomahawk pork chop, it's a multi-person job.
On your next weekend outing, bring your reusable tote to this one-stop shop for grass-fed meat, pasture-raised eggs, and seasonal, organic fruit and vegetables. Don’t worry — your local farmers market feeds its folk with its paleo-friendly food trucks and meat samples from vendors. On your way out, don’t forget to stock up on some fermented foods.
Ready for a mini-adventure over to the North Shore’s Lonsdale Quay Market for some hearty soups, stews, and chowders? We thought so. With a rotating selection of four to five hot soups made daily, in-house, and with the freshest ingredients, German Executive Chef Ralf Dauns’ creations will satisfy your comfort food cravings. However, if the SeaBus is calling, take your pick from 50+ pre-packaged soups and stocks.
Vancouver has plenty of great poke places, but Gastown’s The Poke Shop wins the paleo award thanks to its unique bowl base option — zucchini noodles. Plus, the Pacific surf-inspired decor, tropical drinks, and endless topping options score this underground venue some major points in our book. And if you're not into customizing your own creation, their signature Paleo Bowl is a solid go-to.
