The next time you attend a Whitecaps FC home match, BC Lions home game or BC Place Stadium event, you might notice some exciting new additions to the food and beverage offerings. BC Place and Centerplate has unveiled a host of new menu items featuring fun and creative new dishes, locally-sourced fan favourites, vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options as well as Oceanwise dishes.
I recently attended a showcase of the new food and beverage offerings at BC Place. Here’s a look at what you might want to order.
Rainbow Grilled Cheese Sandwich
Are you ready to taste the rainbow? Available May 25th for the Pride Match, the Rainbow Grilled Cheese Sandwich is a vegetarian offering that is made with 100% mozzarella cheese. Find it at Boom Kitchen! at Sections 210 & 244.

At BC Place, you can also order food and drinks delivered right to your seat. With a smartphone, you simply hover the camera function over the unique code on your armrest to instantly open the menu. There are no apps to download and no registrations required! Each seat is uniquely coded to identify the guest’s location.
You can order from the full kitchen and bar menu, and submit payment via the online checkout. Your order is then freshly prepared and delivered to you.
My top recommendation is the Rainbow Grilled Cheese Sandwich which aside from its novelty factor is really delicious! The melty cheese is just perfect and the bread is nicely toasted and buttery.
