Last week I was invited to attend a tasting of dishes off the spring menu by new Executive Chef Curtis Demyon where they announced their 100% Ocean Wise menu. I was looking forward to seeing and tasting dishes from this new chef, after trying several of the canapés, I was underwhelmed by most. One would think that the Fish House having been around for so many years would want to wow their media guests rather than disappoint.
Out of the 7 canapes I tasted only one was a favourite and that was the Dungeness Crab Balls, some of the others tasted were the Haida Gwaii Halibut Ceviche, Spot Prawn & Roasted Pork Belly Croquette, Avocado Spring Roll. I think a rework of the dishes is in order before the tourists descend on our beautiful city.
The Fish House is located at 8901 Stanley Park Drive in Vancouver.
