BC Place Menu Update

BC Place and BC Lions Announce Enhanced Food and Beverage Concepts for 2016

Truth be told I’ve not been to many football games, but I was game when I was invited down to sample some new menu items from Chef William Tse and his team and check out the new craft beers now available.

BC Place
The impressive “Beast of Fire” kitchen featuring a rotating selection of butchery-style roasts that are carved-to-order. We sampled prime rib. I also learned that someone had made off with a prime rib, the whole roast, at one of last year’s games. I just sampled a bite, but was tempted to grab and go!

Fans can also enjoy a super-huge “Big Event” Triple-Patty Burger that includes 6 strips of Applewood-smoked bacon (I didn’t get through much of this!), Fish Tacos (my favourite), a Foot Long Hotdog, Foot Long sausage with house made chili, and Sriracha Chicken Poutine and more.

Vikram Vij’s Food to Be Sold at the All-New BC Place

Enjoy the Game While Eating Curry From Vij’s

Vij’s Inspired Indian Cuisine is extremely pleased to announce a culinary partnership with Centreplate at BC Place, as upon the official opening tonight (Friday September 30th), spectators will be able to watch the game from the stands while enjoying curries created by celebrated chef Vikram Vij.

As well as traditional game fare, there will now be a flavourful selection of Indian curries from the range of Vij’s gourmet packaged meals available too.  A few on offer include: Chicken Curry with Kalonji Spice, Garam Masala Beef Curry, Mother-In-Law’s Pork Curry and Punjabi Daal.

“I’m honoured to be asked to share my cuisine by Executive Chef, Ryan Stone of  Centreplate at BC Place Stadium,” says Vikram Vij, co-owner of Vij’s and Rangoli restaurants in Vancouver and the creator of the frozen food line, currently available in stores across BC and Canada.  “Vancouver has a fantastic new venue for events in the city and we’re so pleased to provide people going to the games and events with a bit more choice, something a little different, something that will add some spice to their day.”

Vij’s Inspired Indian Cuisine is a range of frozen packaged meals which were developed from popular dishes at Vij’s restaurant.  These meals are available in stores across BC, enabling fans of Vij’s food to take home his dishes and enjoy them in the comfort of their own homes.  Select Vij’s frozen products are also available in Alberta, Saskatchewan, Ontario and Yukon.

Vikram Vij was born in India and grew up in Amritsar and Bombay.  His most vivid childhood memories revolve around food and family and he pursued this further when he moved to Europe and later when he came to live in Canada.
He opened the first 14-seat Vij’s Restaurant in Vancouver in 1994 and, later that same year, married Meeru Dhalwala who would later take over managing the kitchens of both Vij’s and Rangoli restaurants.
Vij has published two award-winning cookbooks – Vij’s: Elegant and Inspired Indian Cuisine and Vij’s at Home: Relax, Honey.
