I try out some great restaurants in Vancouver so you don't have to. You're welcome. Also sometimes I cook.
Continuing with the cocktail trend… When in Whistler, sample the Sazerac at @araxirestaurant. Tell them Wil sent ya. They'll be like, "Who?"
The Blind Sparrow’s got a friendly local vibe and some cocktails on the menu. This colourful specimen is called Port in a Storm: Canadian whiskey, fresh citrus, egg whites, ruby port float.
When it comes to authentic Korean food, they tell me South Castle in North Vancouver is 최고! I just know it's damn delicious. Bring a fire extinguisher.
Summer is finally here, and that means late evening cocktails! Everyone knows L'Abattoir cocktails are the cockiest. And for good reason. Great spot for drinks even if you're not staying for dinner.
When we moved to Vancouver with only two cats and barely $700 in the bank, takeout from the West End's Olympia plus a movie rental (VHS!) was a major Friday night luxury. Those were great times, but life and food moves on. Well, after nearly 16 years we decided to check it out again, for nostalgia's sake. Their pizza is… even better than I remember. Yay comfort food!
A simple Saturday summer supper. Steamed Dungeness with spices, accompanied with sage and garlic broiled in a tomalley-butter reduction
Fresh garden herbs and ripe flavourful tomatoes is the key to an acceptable omelette experience. Also simmered mushrooms and red onions with quality cheeses and lots of butter and olive oil helps. (Note: avocados have jumped the breakfast shark long ago)
Afternoon "protein snack" haha. Filet mignon with secret herbs and butter, smoked with sage and grilled medium-rare, served with @annette.e.arndt's amazing walnut-Dutch-Blue-cheese-stuffed mushrooms.
Last night I dreamed about Copenhagen
You don't make friends with salad… Then again, your friends have never had this epic concoction . Nicoise base and sauce by @annette.e.arndt, grilled lobster topping by @wileatsvancouver
Great pastry completes great coffee and
Finally made it out to Marutama Gaiden on Main today for their AKA MARU! The verdict? Good, but my favourite is still their Bidwell location off Robson.
