Kolachy Takes Vancouver!

Recommended Posts

Thought today would be a good day to get my first kolachy, so I checked a map and felt pretty confident I could get there without getting lost. It's only a few minutes away by car. Unfortunately, I missed Beatty Street not once, but twice. (I went over the Cambie bridge.) Still undeterred, I weaved my way through traffic once more, and parked on Nelson, (genius!) intending to walk to the rest of the way to the Kolachy Shop. When I finally get there, the place was dark and a sign said that it was closed today and will re-open tomorrow. I just wasted 45 minutes of my life. :huh:

Aaahhh...yes, Grasshopper...

Often the journey to nirvana is filled with mountains of donuts and hills of bagels! Persist, persist and persist!

The journey is worth the walk....

P.S. Give me a time and I will be waiting at the door and will introduce you to the owner as another eGulleter ‘Kolachy Stalker’!!!!!

Hmm, I saw someone Ling-ish there, except her hair was dark...was that you in the corner? I was the blonde with glasses and a black puffy down vest. I always get mine to go so I can feed my internet addiction over lunch  :blush:

Great! Now we're getting eGullet lurkers in real life! :hmmm:

Introduce yourself to Keith ... he knows a lot of us now and will be able to point other eGulleters out to you.

Yup, that was me! Forgot to mention that the pic is old; I've since dyed my hair (closer to my natural colour) and it's a bit longer now. Which kolachy did you get? I had the Reuben, the Chicken Marsala, and had bites of my bf's steak and cheese and bacon dog.

The Reuben was my favourite though! Yum! :biggrin:

Oh :smile: I had the Greek and the minestrone (I really like the soups there). I may try the Marsala tomorrow if I head back.

Next time I will know it's you then, and say hi :smile:

Their is more to the Kolachy shop then savoury meat wrapped and baked in a mildly sweet dough!

I had the baked potato soup for lunch today! WOW....10/10!

Have you had the mushroom/potato potage? Or the borscht?

Then again, I had wonton soup with Neil today ... where were you? Supporting your friend? NO! Supporting your kolachy habbit! YES!

It makes me sad. :sad:

I think I remember who you are! I liked the Marsala too, but I think it's a tiny bit undersalted, so I prefer the Reuben. Maybe we can have lunch together next week. (And Chef Fowke can come too. :wink: )

Dear God in heaven. Their beef stroganoff soup is unbelievably good.

Actually, I got it chopped at a salon right after eating my kolachies.  :shock:

I'm there basically without fail on Tuesdays, and sometimes on Wednesdays (Mondays I'm lazy, Thursday is Chicken Curry at Beatty Street Bar & Grill, and Fridays a bunch of us from work usually go out together). So if you want to book for Tuesday coming, right around noon, I'll see you there!

Hey, perhaps one of you guys could drop one off for me ?

I know I barely know you and never see you so why would you think of me when you are filling your gobs with Kolachy but it would appear I will be the only one working and unable to make this meeting. And no, I do not want a cold Kolachy when you all come for dinner tonight !
