Archive for the ‘Taco’ Category

The much anticipated Lobster Summer Menu has returned to the Keg. From now till August 28, you can indulge in a number of dishes made from lobsters flown in from Nova Scotia. Mr. and I were invited to sample some dishes from this year’s menu.

Food

For starter we had the Crispy Lobster Tacos. There were two pieces of lobster in each taco (although the size of lobster pieces varied), all of which were nicely fried and cooked perfectly — crispy on the outside, moist and juicy inside. The sauce had some heat to it, it was creamy, and worked very well with the tacos.

The portion of the plate was quite big, actually. It’s more like a shared appy, than an appy to yourself. I would suggest getting this to share.

For entree, we had the Steak and Half Lobster, a 6oz steak. The sirloin steak was cooked to medium rare, tender, with beautiful grill marks. You would never be disappointed with steaks at The Keg. Our plates came with a baked potato, and it was nice and fluffy. I ordered extra bacon on the side, and yes, you should always order extra bacon if you can.

Check out the size of that lobster! (more…)

The Vancouver Fish Company has opened its door since September 2014. Located right at the entrance of the Granville Island, this seafood restaurant has been using Ocean Wise ingredients but only just recently that it has officially signed on as an Ocean Wise partner. And to celebrate, it’s running its first ever Ocean Wise Festival and I was invited for a tasting of the menu.

Not all festival menu items are new; some are simply customer favourites that they want to highlight during this time. First up, Fresh Shucked Zen & Glacier Oysters. According to the restaurant, Zen & Glacier are two lesser used varieties farmed in BC, and they’re more affordable than some more commonly known ones.

Zen reminded me of Kusshi – thinner flesh, delicate, crisp with a cucumber finish.

Glacier, on the other hand, is more plump in shape.

For a friend’s reunion, we were once again looking for a central location for Vancouverites as well as suburbaners. So here we were at Browns Socialhouse in the Brewery District in New Westminster, close to the Sapperton skytrain station.

On Mondays, their drink special is $2 off mojitos. Between the traditional and raspberry, I opted for the Raspberry Mojito. It was in a pretty pink hue, with fruity flavour from the muddled raspberries. The drink is a 2oz pour so you can definitely taste the alcohol. Very good choice for a hot summer day.

As for food, Mr. ordered the Hickory Burger. He has been craving for a really good burger for several weeks now. Even though The Burger Joint at the Food Cart Fest satisfied his craving, he still felt like more! (more…)
