Nacho Fries, Chicken Tenders, and Wings from Fatburger

The final whistle blew at BC Place. The Whitecaps had fought hard, but the scoreboard reflected a 1-1 draw against Charlotte FC. They definitely had their chances, making the result sting even more.

Needing some serious comfort food therapy, I texted my brother, "Where do you want to find comfort?" His reply was immediate: "I want greasy comfort food: burgers." He was thinking of Five Guys, but he warned us to prepare for a crowd.

Feeling famished after the game, we trudged down Robson Street alongside hundreds of other Whitecaps supporters, each one dissecting the match with animated gestures. As expected, Five Guys was overflowing. But hey, there's always a Plan B.

A block or so away, Fatburger beckoned with the promise of juicy, greasy goodness—perfect. However, my stomach was still full from the pre-game feast at BC Place, so I decided to sample a variety of smaller bites.

First up: Nachos Fries. Crispy, golden-brown fries formed the base. Then, it was smothered in a rich, hearty chili that offers a pleasant kick. Shredded cheddar cheese added a creamy touch, and the juicy tomatoes and tangy jalapeños brought a welcome freshness. The accompanying guacamole and sour cream provided the perfect dipping options, allowing me to customize the flavour profile with each bite.

Next, I couldn't resist the Chicken Tenders. These crispy delights were everything the menu promised—perfectly battered, hand-breaded, and fried to golden perfection. Each bite was a delightful explosion of juicy chicken and crispy coating.

Why choose? Combine two juicy tenders and six mouth-watering wings. Served with signature wing sauce, dipping sauce, crispy skin on fries, and a drink.

Then, I shared an order of Buffalo Wings with Honey Garlic sauce with my husband. The crispy breading gave way to tender, fall-off-the-bone chicken, perfectly coated in the sweet and slightly spicy honey garlic sauce.

Finally, to truly soothe our post-game disappointment, we couldn't resist sharing an order of 5 Mini Donuts. These bite-sized delights were dusted with fragrant cinnamon sugar, offering a warm and comforting sweetness. Each drunk into the rich caramel dipping sauce added a decadent touch, creating a perfect balance of sweet and salty.

While the game result wasn't ideal, the post-match feast at Fatburger definitely helped lift our spirits (and fill our bellies).
