Saturday Night on the Town

Saturday night on the town was dinner at The Old Spaghetti Factory.

The Gastown location opened on March 22, 1970. I arrived in Vancouver 20 years later. And took me almost another 20 years to try it.

An experience not to be missed for sure. It is semi Disney Land. An uncomplicated menu and easy food preparation ensures fast service for the diner.

But for the workers, according to my date who worked at the restaurant years ago, the model caused them spagmares.

This is how the evening went.

The "It's All Included" menu means that a warm bread, with regular and garlic butter, appears at your table.

Very quickly, the salad is there; served on the original plates from the 70s.

The food is sizeable but simple in both taste and spicing sophistication.

To get the full experience, I ordered the Manager's Favourite where one chooses two of the sauces.

"It's All Included" meant their signature Spumoni Ice-cream.

And all of this "It's All Included" was $11.95.

Not bad value for a Saturday Night out on the town.
