There’s no question that Vancouver is a multi-cultural city and it’s easy to immerse oneself in the culinary diversity of the local community. Straight from arrival at YVR airport, travellers can experience unparalleled culinary offerings that reflect the city’s different ethnicities, traditions and commitment to fresh and healthy eats.
Opened in late December 2022 at the international terminal, Salmon n’ Bannock On The Fly is the only Indigenous owned and operated restaurant at a Canadian airport. Traditional ingredients used by their Ancestors provide authentic flavours to their modern dishes. This location of Salmon n’ Bannock has exclusive new offerings showcasing the important role food plays in Indigenous cultures. Fresh and authentic Indigenous cuisine at YVR airport is elevating the offerings on the go travellers can enjoy.
Whether travelling from overseas or domestically, Vancouver visitors have a new, delicious and nutritious drink option at five locations throughout YVR airport. The Smoothie Machine – a first in North American airports – was recently created and installed by TrendiTech Inc, a local robotics company. With a mission to fight food waste, each smoothie is made from local misfit fruit and veggies and is dispensed in recyclable cups. Available any time of day, these colourful vending machines are the latest addition to a variety of dining experiences at YVR airport focused on providing healthy meals and snacks.
