I am a lucky man. My girl got me a pair of tickets to the Vancouver Canucks 2nd round Game 1 versus the Chicago Blackhawks. To be honest, I'm not the biggest hockey fan but the energy and excitement around the playoffs was amazing! She also told me that GM Place recently put in 2 new food stands to add to their big selection of concessions. So I decided to take my camera to the madness and try the food at these new spots.
This one is a new gourmet hotdog stand that's located on the 100's level. They grill the buns and add grilled onions as an option to their hotdogs. $6.00 gets you a Jumbo Dog and $7.00 for the footlong. I opted for the Jumbo since i still have to try the 2nd joint. They have a pretty good size condiment stand next to the counter to load up your dogs. Copped a beer to make the dog go down for another $7.00.
This mexican joint was located on the 300's level. The menu wasn't too impressive with only 4 items; Beef Quesadilla, Chicken Quesadilla, Vegi Quesadilla and Nachos. All the quesadillas were $9.50. Since I still had a sausage of unknown meat digesting in me I ordered the Vegi Quesadilla. These were way overpriced for what you get, a simple flour tortilla with beans and cheese, some wack salsa and sour cream on the side.
The Canucks took this game and with a few stadium beer in me I forgot how disappointing the Mexican food was. If I'm fortunate enough to attend another game this playoff season, I will stick to the White Spot Triple'O Burgers for the same price as those sorry quesadilllas!
