12 Water Street, Vancouver
Advice: Hidden off of Water Street in the back of the courtyard, reservations in advance are suggested.
Hidden off the beaten track of Gastown is foodie heaven, food lovers unite at this very well run establishment of exciting flavours whether it be for food or drink. The menu ever changing always offers wonderful dishes and flavours. In for dinner recently with a friend, I had the outstanding Deep Fried Octopus Chips ($6) thinly sliced Octopus with Thai Chilli & Lemon Dressing and my friend had the Side Local Green Salad ($6) & lemon Dressing.
For our entrees, I had the delicious Angus Beef Short Ribs ($24) Cauliflower Puree, Chanterelle Mushrooms, Kaniwa & Walnuts and he had the Duck Breast ($22) with Brussel Sprouts and Potatoes.
Of course dessert is a must to end my meals, and this dessert was heavenly, Jamieson Whiskey Butterscotch Pudding ($7) and my friend the Chocolate Trio ($7) chocolate ganache, chocolate ice cream, and chocolate.
