The typical dinner and a movie Sunday turned into a day of discovering this amazing place, Novo Pizzeria (2118 Burrard St). Situated right by 5th Avenue Cinemas, this Italian restaurant pleasantly surprised me with their kindness in accommodating me as a vegan. I asked the server what on their menu could be “veganized”? He laughed and said, “that’s a term I have not heard before, I like it”. He cheerfully proceeded to list a number of dishes that could be made vegan as well as all the veggie pizzas that would be just as delicious without cheese. However, my appreciation came at his offer to make me a dish with their vegan pasta and whatever veggies and sauce I wanted. I chose the pasta with olive oil, garlic, and any veggies they could add to it. The outcome was absolutely delicious. I paired it with a glass of white wine and it was the perfect pre-movie dinner.
