New Dishes Tasting at Pepino’s Spaghetti House

It had been a couple of years since I dined inside, takeout during the pandemic wasn’t the same. With Chef Vish Mayekar having joined the team a few months back, this gave me a chance for a revisit to try a selection of new dishes that he had added to the menu.

1st dish:

Garlic Cheesy Bread, this one is a classic that I’m almost certain will never change.

2nd dish:

Chopped Iceberg Salad, Peperoncino, Italian Dressing, Olives, Macedonian Feta, tasty salad with a different presentation.

3rd dish:

Gnocchi alla Genovese with it’s creamy pesto, loved this dish that Chef Vish recently perfected.

4th dish:

Linguine alle Vongole another tweaked dish that is loaded with clams.

5th dish:

Meat Ravioli, meat sauce, this takes the Chef Boyardee classic to who different level and it was outstanding.

6th dish:

Lasagna al Formaggio, Bolognese, with besciamella, ricotta, and smoked provolone; layers of deliciousness.

7th dish:

Cherry Coke Baby Back Ribs with a side of Roasted Asparagus; another new dish from Chef Vish, tender meat that falls of the bone that is full of flavour.

 8th dish:

THE BIG ELOTE! signature Detroit-style pie – deep dish with a crispy crust and caramelized cheese edges – topped with fresh marinara, quattro formaggio blend, Cotija cheese, sweet local corn, and spicy chorizo; and finished with house chipotle aioli, cilantro and a lime wedge.

9th dish:

Tiramisu a classic dessert here that I’m almost certain will never change.

Pepino’s Spaghetti House is located 631 Commercial Drive in Vancouver.
