Entertainment Tonight Canada Host, Rick Campanelli, shares his favorite foods and the one Vancouver restaurant on his must-visit list.
The food you would most often describe as, ‘to die for’?
RC – I loved my Nonna’s lasagna. We could just keep eating and eating! I’ve move onto more ‘sophisticated foods’ now, like sushi. All the places here in Vancouver are amazing.
Your favorite Vancouver restaurant?
RC – Miku is a great spot. The chef behind the bar makes an amazing dynamite roll, but it’s not on the menu. He just whipped it up on the spot.
Your trashy indulgence? (eg. that late night 7/11 or drive-thru treat)
RC – Hot dogs and hamburgers! You know the ones at 7-Eleven that are sitting there rolling on the heaters?
The food you refuse to eat?
RC – I’ll eat anything in front of me. I even ate giblets and liver when my mom used to cook them up…like giblets. Who eats giblets?
The sexiest food?
RC – Sushi. Also, a plate with barely anything on it and a bottle of wine.
Your favorite dessert?
RC – Crème Brûlée from anywhere and everywhere that sells it. I’m serious. I love crème brûlée
Your favorite comfort food?
RC – Nonna’s stracciatella soup. My mom learned the recipe and now I’m trying to learn it.
