550 Denman Street, Vancouver
Advice: The patio is the place to be on a sunny day.
Picture yourself on the beach on the Mediterranean sipping some drinks and eating delicious food, now wake up from your dream and head on down to the foot of Denman and watch the boats sail by, sip on those drinks and indulge in flavours from Morocco, Spain and the Mediterranean region by known restaurateurs Gord Martin and Abdel Elatouabi. Last week I had dinner with my friend and fellow food writer Cassandra Anderton in this nice room overlooking the marina, to warm our palate we were served a complimentary bowl of delish Moroccan Chickpeas.
To begin our meal we had the Kalamata Olive Homous which came with the delicious Turkish Flatbread for dipping. Next was the Greek Salad a la sol, a very different take on a Greek salad made with grilled Octopus; though I enjoyed the Prawn Kebab over the latter which was full of flavour.
For our mains, the great flavours continued, my absolute favourite dish was the Duck Confit served with a rice cake and greens, followed by the the Black Truffle Chicken and then the Red Snapper.
For dessert, I loved the Lavender, Pistachio, Marsala Ice Cream as well as the rich Cinnamon Nutmeg Creme Brûlée, the last dessert that I tried was the Lemon Meringue Pie in a glass which didn’t wow me.
