Last week I was invited to a media tasting at Earls to try some of the new dishes on their spring menu!
Albacore Tuna Poke Nachos | crisp togarashi wontons, tuna, cucumber, avocado and tomato poke, spicy mango coulis, sliced serranos, crushed macadamia nuts.
Meatball Slider | hand made Italian meatballs, provolone, San Marzano tomato sauce, parmesan aioli, house made mini bun.
Dominical Fish Tacos | Costa Rican inspired, two flour tortillas, grilled lime and coriander marinated wahoo, mango and avocado salsa, spicy Valentia crema.
Dungeness Crab and Asparagus Linguini | saffron cream sauce, tomatoes, asparagus, lemon oil, prawns and Dungeness crab.
Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup | milk chocolate creme, peanut butter mousse, toffee crunch.
I had tried the Ocean Wise-certified Albacore Tuna Poke Nachos at the previous tasting and I still love it. From the new savoury dishes that I tried at this tasting, my favourite was the Dungeness Crab and Asparagus Linguini in a delicious light safron cream sauce. I just tried only one dessert, but this one blew me away, it was a bit of throwback in time, the Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup is one that you are going to want to try time and time again!
Most of these dishes are now available at Earl’s locations around Vancouver as well as their 60-plus locations across Canada and the United States.
