Vancouver Cheap Eats: Happy Hour

Comments

If you hear an alarm going off between 3 and 4 p.m., it’s probably because there’s a Chowster near by. And no, we didn’t pull an all-nighter gaming, studying, or kegging. It’s simply to remind us that the greatest hour of all is about to begin: happy hour.

Do we really need to explain what makes us so happy about happy hours? Besides the discounts, it’s a great excuse to gather your colleagues, friends, and fellow students for an early evening chow down. Forget mediocre bites like pretzels and peanuts. We’re happy to report that there are plenty of delicious bites to choose from. Join Vancity Buzz and Chowmenow as we gather the crew and make the rounds.

Cibo Trattoria

From 12 to 5 p.m., get shucked at Cibo. There’s buck a shuck every day, and Tuesdays an added bonus of $2 bruschetta.

Ebisu

We have Fabulously Frugal to thank for tweeting about this Happy Hour. Every day from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m., chow on Royal Miyagi Oysters for 99 cents, sushi rolls for $3.50 and Chicken Wings for 39 cents. We’re not done. There’s also spicy calamari, jalapeno shrimp and chili short ribs all for under a #ChowFind.

Hapa Izakaya 

Hapa

You better eat fast, because you’ve got an hour to demolish Hapa hour. Keep in mind menus and times differ between locations, but no matter which spot you choose, you’re bound to be Hapa with pork shi-yaki, B.C. halibut risotto croquette, and the beef tataki. All 5 bucks or under.

Kingston Taphouse & Grille

This happy hour is served from 4 to 7pm every night, and includes kettle chips served with sour cream and black bean salsa, a charcuterie board, a cheese board, and a hummus plate. You guessed it: 5 dollars.

Gyu-Kaku  

Gyu-Kaku

There are over 18 items for less than a fiver at Gyu-Haka. Steamed chili dumplings, pork belly chips, chicken karaage and cheese wontons for starters. And there’s plenty of time to take advantage of these discounted prices. Mundane Monday? Think again, as happy hour lasts all day long. For the rest of the week, you’re looking at 11:30am to 6pm, and 9pm to 11:30pm.
