Victoria, meet MeeT.
Vancouver’s popular chain of vegetarian eateries has sets its sight on the B.C. Capital as it looks to expand beyond the lower Mainland.
Known for its all-veggie take on familiar dishes – many of which are touted as nouveau spins on traditional comfort foods – MeeT’s award-winning servings are a hot topic among Vancouver’s foodie circles, and soon they’ll be a local one. But how soon is the big question.
While the company has begun its search for Victoria staff and managerial leaders, it remains coy on exactly when, or where, it plans to open for business.
“Unfortunately we don't have any specifics yet as we are still in the planning stages,” says MeeT’s communications and media rep, Daz Green.
Speculation, naturally, has run wild with assumptions that MeeT’s Victoria digs will be in Old Town, or as part of a new development somewhere in the city centre. Or not.
What is known is MeeT’s entry onto the Victoria food scene is one of many Vancouver originals that have made the jump across the strait. And virtually all have situated in the downtown core.
Before them came Meat & Bread (although that experiment didn’t last very long) in the 700-block of Yates Street, El Furniture Warehouse
in the 500-block of Yates Street, and La Taqueria in the 700-block of Fort Street, among others. And several more are eyeing the Island, too.
As for MeeT, they say the food is worth the wait, but if you can't and you're in Vancouver, drop them a visit
in Gastown, Yaletown or on the Main Street strip. C
