My new fave poke place is nestled inside the Lonsdale Quay market, very accessible and convenient from the Seabus terminal. Poke & Co, originally from California, opened in December 2017 and has been a hit since then. Just like every other poke place, ordering here […]
A few days later, hankering for another uni fix, Bistro failed to deliver, apparently it’s not everyday that they have this dish and to prevent further disappointment it’s best to call for availability before heading there, so I got their calling card to be sure. This third visit was not as satisfying as the first two but then again maybe because I’ve already had my fill of dinner at Minami so I wasn’t really hankering for anything else but uni. I ordered ikura and a few others from their regular menu and tried the wagyu again but somehow their wagyu was not as good as the previous one, there were a few chewy parts.. I also tried aburi which paled in comparison to Miku.
who doesn’t love fish tacos?Tacofino is another one of those accidental finds that we discovered while waiting for dinner reservation for yet another restaurant. This time we were planning on trying Pidgin at Carrall Street and on the way there we saw this Gastown gem. […]
As with all other places, the lineup here is quite terrible when you go during peak hours but a few minutes of standing under the sun will be rewarded with exceptional fare. well I guess when you’re sunburnt and hungry I guess everything starts sounding exceptional haha but so far, I’ve never been disappointed with any of my orders.
My favourite is the salmon fish and chips and fried oysters, both come with crispy fries and some dip, you can also opt to have a salad instead but whoever heard of fish and salad? I know, right? you’re eating deep fried food anyway so why not go all the way and try all their deep fried goodness in one meal. Another recent discovery is the tuna tacones which is basically like fish tacos but their tuna is lightly seared medium rare on a bed of greens and topped with a wedge of lime, a refreshing alternative if you don’t want to clog your arteries. There are other grilled items on the menu and a chowder too but I haven’t had time to give them a try because I keep getting derailed when I’m about to order, so maybe next time?
