It’s All About Discovery on the Newly Expanded Surrey Spice Trail

Surrey’s Spice Trail is focused on the people that make multicultural dining in Surrey so special. Well-known chefs, like Vikram Vij (My Shanti), dedicated cooks, tireless front of house staff, and entire families work together to bring the flavours of their home countries to life in Surrey. It is a labour of love … which is what sets the Spice Trail apart.

This March 2022, over 45 new restaurants, cafes, tour companies and retail stores, reflective of Surrey’s community, are being added to the Spice Trail. Diners now have the choice of over 75 delicious global dining opportunities, including exciting new cuisine types like African and Syrian. New partners include established family-run restaurants, cafes showcasing fine dining and much-loved neighbourhood favourites.

“Bringing together so many different styles of food underneath one banner is a bit of a metaphor for Surrey, in general,” says Julia Barrieros, Chair of the Board of Directors for Discover Surrey and General Manager at Four Points by Sheraton Surrey, “We’re excited to expand upon the success of the Surrey Spice Trail and can’t wait to give visitors the opportunity discover new restaurants ranging from high-end bistros to local take-out favourites.”
