Saku

One of the best parts of having a food Instagram (besides an excuse to eat all the time!) is meeting like minded individuals who you share interests with beyond food.

L’Abattoir

L’Abattoir is one of my favourite restaurants in Vancouver. I have been here multiple times for dinner, but I’ve never been able to get a good photo of their amazing food because it’s usually quite dark!
