[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][image_with_animation image_url=”14898″ animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”][vc_column_text]

The 11th annual Taste of Yaletown 2015 event is soon happening between Oct 15 to 29th, 2015. This two week period showcases 26 participating restaurants, offering fixed menu prices of $25, $35, or $45 – a portion of profits going in support of the Greater Vancouver Food Bank. Today, we met at Xoxolat 1271 Homer Street before breaking off into groups.
