One sunny afternoon I was on Davie street and noticed a nice looking terrace and thought to myself: I could go for a sit down and a refreshing beverage. So I saddle up to a stool at a table overlooking the street and ordered a white wine spritzer.
While waiting for my drink to come I pursued the food menu. I realized that this is not the typical place I would normally go for a drink. Or, really, any other reason, but they had lovely outdoor seating and I was on holiday so why not go to a sports bar with a vaguely Mexican logo?
Checkmate is what the above food/beverage combo in the picture above is named. It cost $60 and must be shared between 2 or more people.
I ask the waitress what exactly was in this unique creation, are you ready?: Place on top of a large bloody Caesar (for those non Canadians a bloody caesar is basically a bloody Mary made with Clamato juice), then a roast chicken (which I have to imagine is de-boned), a big hamburger, a slider, onions rings, a cheese dog, chicken wings, pulled pork, mac ‘n cheese, a brownie and a pickle on top (seems to me from the picture there are other things, maybe they improvise sometimes? Looks like a kebab and deep-fried nuggets of some sort.)
If you are in Vancouver and are feeling like a, um, feast this particular item is only available at Scores on Davie.
Don’t forget to ask for 2 straws.
And for you less adventurous souls, they do make a fine white wine spritzer, splurge and get the big one, because as you can see they do big really well ;-)
