the voucher we got was $59 and included two entrees, two appetizers and two desserts,
fresh baked bread: it was really soft and fluffy when it came out
1lb mussels and frites ($17): served in a coconut curry broth, these mussels were plump, juicy and so fresh. there was plenty for the 3 of us and my parents claimed it was one of the best they'd ever had
the fries (with chipotle dip): my dad polished of the very last crumb of these fresh cut fries. he loved them so much because they were crispy but really soft on the inside. they were fresh fried when they came out but i felt a tiny bit over salted.
dungeness crab cake: lime aioli, brie cheese and pistachio crumble ($16): this was again very delicious. an abundant amount of crab and it was not greasy or over fried at all. it was missing a little bit of the "cake" in crab cake but i actually prefer that over the croquette type breading!
sablefish with sake-soy glaze and soba noodles ($25): this was my favourite dish (although all were 5/5 worthy) because the soba noodles complimented this dish so perfectly. the sable fish was moist and oily, the only way to enjoy sable fish, with an asian glaze and seared perfectly. the noodles were so good too…being not quite hot but mixed with the sauce, was amazing.
yarrows meadows duck with baby potato and winter vegetables ($26): the duck was cooked to perfection. served with a dijon mustard sauce, it was one of the best dishes i'd ever had. perfectly rare in the middle, the flavour of duck breast just shined in this dish, so good.
braised short rib risotto with mushrooms ($25): this was super rich and cheesy but so delicious. it was filled with mushrooms and the short rib was break-apart soft. the flavours were perfect, not too salty or bland and there was so much, we had to pack some to go!
apple cake: a bit sweet and served cold (not the best idea IMO) but it was good and the cream was fresh and light.
kaffir lime creme brûlée: of the two desserts, this was the better one. the kaffir lime was subtle but helped balance out the sweetness and the creme brûlée itself was smooth and decadent.
overall: one of the best "european" dinners i've had in vancouver. the food was amazing and portions were MORE THAN ENOUGH. DEFINITELY RECOMMEND YOU TRY THIS PLACE OUT!!
