Cheese Me Raclette in Vancouver Christmas Market

Happy Saturday! We planned to watch the drone show scheduled near Canada Place this evening, but it has been cancelled. So we changed our weekend plans because of the cancellation.

We still grabbed lunch from Vancouver Christmas Market, and our first bite of food for the day was from Cheese Me Raclette.

It's so fun to see cheese bubble and melt and then be scraped off over boiled potatoes and ham.

The Classic Raclette is delicious but not flavourful enough to order it a second time. On the other hand, their Cheese Me Chowder is where all the flavour is. Yum! Order it with their grilled cheese and dip it in the delicious soup.

The Cheese Me Chowder is creamy and comforting, perfect for cold winter days. Meanwhile, the Grilled Cheese is one note in flavour but dip it into the chowder, and it becomes a vessel of deliciousness.

Below is a list of food vendors inside the Vancouver Christmas Market we have tried so far, and we're almost done trying all of them.
