Chambar hosts annual medieval feast on July 22
Next Sunday (July 22) on Beatty Street, don’t be surprised if you see a pig on a spit and people sporting jester masks, furs, or medieval costumes walking into Chambar . The award-winning Belgian restaurant is throwing a period feast to celebrate Belgian National Day.
Chef and owner Nico Schuermans has Belgian heritage and thus a soft spot for the country’s national day (which is technically a day earlier on July 21). The medieval theme isn’t Belgian—it’s just for fun—but there will be plenty of food, with 17 dishes served family-style.
This is not an affair for vegetarians—with a spit-roasted pig, frogs’ legs, and foie gras, there is no vegetarian option. Dinner will be served at communal tables and will be a no-fuss kind of meal.
It all starts at 6 p.m. Seats cost $70 per person (plus beverages, tax, and gratuity). Reserve by phone at 604-879-7119 or get tickets here.
