1st picture – peanut butter chocolate bar and passion fruit gelee

2nd picture – smoking berry cocktail

3rd picture – rare rice crusted albacore tuna loin

the way ebo restaurant present their dishes were rather unique. firstly, the smoking berry cocktail had dry ice in it and thus, it was smoking for minutes ! it caught my attention when i was in another counter and i dashed directly to the booth instantly ! secondly, the dessert and side dish are displayed on boat shaped plates, unlike other booths which only placed their food on plates. the people introducing the items are very engaging in our conversations. they were even telling me what their work shifts were and such. amazing !

2nd picture - torta de quinoa (4 tickets = $2) – gluten free dark chocolate quinoa cake with ecotic fruit syrup & whipped cream

due to the lack of bones, the food is gluten-free friendly, vegan friendly and kid friendly. the restaurant is good at segmentation marketing as they are even able to target young children, who cannot differentiate bones and meat. good presentation and great catch up on being gluten and vegan friendly too !

gorilla food
436 Richards Street
Vancouver, BC
(604) 684-3663

i did not take photos of the food because it was not memorable enough for me. instead, i took photos of their decorations ! the cards are done very remarkably ! the business cards stands out on the hat ! the way they use so many materials to attract people’s attention take a lot of effort ! very impressed with their packaging strategy.
