Save some room for dinner because Crave the Heights 2022 is returning to Burnaby. This special 10-day event showcases all the amazing food that’s available in the Burnaby Heights neighbourhood. Plus, each restaurant will have “special menu items, drink features, and delicious desserts.”

Restaurants like Butchers Block BBQ House, which is offering a “Crave BBQ Sampler Platter” that will let you try a little bit of everything from its menu. For $49.99 you can get beef brisket, pulled pork, sausage, chicken and ribs, all with a side of cornbread and coleslaw.

Other places are serving up some breakfast options like The Grey Olive Cafeteria, which is featuring its “Pork Belly Breaky.” It comes with braised pork belly, chilli marinated tomatoes, arugula, marbled eggs, and toasted sesame mayo.
