In back alleys of Gastown Blood Alley there is a hip little joint called the Salt Tasting Room Vancouver. Here it is obligatory to sample a few flights of wine over great conversation with old and new friends. It is the perfect after work happy hour type of hang out and the pre and post dinner chill out. Perhaps it would be rather dangerous if you arrive on an empty stomach because the Salt Tasting Room Vancouver does not serve full meal entrees.
How to Build Your Tasting Flight:
- Pick any 3 items total from the Meat & Cheese columns, then pick any 3 condiments
- How to pair your tasting plate with wine. In addition to the regular selection of wine, choose to pair your Tasting Plate with a Wine Flgiht of 2oz pours
- Extras: Check the bottom of the front chalkboard for special items or add one of Salt Tasting Room salads to compliment your Tasting Plate.
Salt Tasting Room Vancouver menu is on a chalk board listing a fine selection of artisan cheeses such as: local chevre, taleggio, stilton blue cheeses, etc. If you are a novice cheese eater and find it difficult to decided beyond cheddar and cheese strings, the staff here are knowledgeable and can help provide a few suggestions. The meat selection here are also delicious: Pork rillette, speck, hot capicola, corn beef, etc. My favorite part is the condiments: fresh pear, honey, fig and nut bread, mustard, etc.
The interior decor at Salt Tasting Room Vancouver has long communal tables and exposed brick walls. There is private tasting room in the basement.
Don’t worry, if you absentminded like I am the Salt Tasting Room writes the names of the wine on paper next to the glass itself.
Salt Tasting Room is one of the destinations on our Gastown Tasting Tour.
