Owned by Chef Ciaran Chung & Dolly Reno they have created a menu of share plates with a focus on using local ingredients creating colourful plates that brings a dash of vibrancy to the dining experience. My friend Kenneth Cho joined me for dinner as we shared some dishes, we began with the Crispy Pork Bits delicious with the grainy mustard mayo and slices of radish; we then enjoyed the Salad of Squash a stunning plate with fresh house-made cheese, and citrus.
Next was the Meatballs + Cheesy Toast, hearty and delicious with pieces of cheese toast in a rich tomato sauce; this was followed by the glorious BC Salmon with artichokes, potatoes, radishes, and Bagna cauda.
The journey continued as we enjoyed all three of their desserts, the outstanding Buttermilk Pannacotta with grapes and almond biscotti; along with the very unique Chocolate Fig Cake with chunks of fig in a dense chocolate cake served with vanilla ice cream and blood orange segments; lastly the warmed Caramelized Pear Tart Tatin with ginger ice cream for a sweet finish to an amazing meal. You’ll find the cocktail bar a great place to sit when dining solo and a cocktail list to match the equally inventive dishes!
