Metro Vancouver Lunch Rush: Lucy’s Eastside Diner

Black Bean Veggie Burger & Peanut Butter Milkshake
Looking for a diner on Main Street? You found it. 
Peanut butter was the one edible indulgence yet to bewitch my palate. Somehow, I remained immune to its thick, sweet and salty wiles.

A milkshake from Lucy’s Eastside Diner ($6.50) changed all that. One sip of its rich, frosty beverage had me.

Since opening a mere five months ago, Vancouver’s newest 24-hour diner —  specializing in Southern breakies, heartening burgers and a variety of aforementioned dessert drinks — has quickly become one of the city’s top spots for late night nosh.

The herbed goat cheese delicately placed atop my cumin-scented, pleasantly grainy chickpea and black bean-packed patty was soft, warm and easily spreadable. Finely chopped hot peppers added a faint warmth to each mouthful’s aftertaste. Added avocado (a no-brainer if ever offered) deepened the moistness of the sandwich, built on a soft, mayo-lathered bun.

This entire lunch combo ($10) could be one of the best deals in town.
