With just 2 weeks left here at NextPhase, I think it's time to reveal my identity. I'm a marketing intern/social media coordinator at NextPhase Strategy. I love to eat, but I don't have time to bring a homemade lunch every day, and I'm on a low budget, being a university student. That's why I was slightly concerned when I started working at NextPhase's Yaletown office. I saw a lot of upscale restaurants, seafood bars, and steakhouses, but there seemed to be a lack of affordable eateries.
After a quick search on the Web, I came across Urbanspoon.com, where I was able to browse restaurants by a variety of categories, such as price, cuisine, and location. I also discovered that two of my coworkers had quite the collection of take-out menus.
So, I ended up trying 18 different eateries in Yaletown, all of which offer meals ranging from $6 to $12. Here's the list including highlights and my personal ratings.
Aside from these, there's also Pacific Centre- just a Skytrain ride away- for a more crowd-immersing food court experience. I have definitely enjoyed working in such a unique neighbourhood and having had the opportunity to try out so many different restaurants.
