When I asked for restaurant recommendations for Las Vegas, most people suggested Eggslut. So we went. At 12:30am on a Friday night/Saturday morning.

Eggslut Vegas Late Night

It’s amazing to be in the sin city, where a restaurant would open at 12am. Yep, Eggslut opens at 12am on Saturdays, to cater to the clubbing crowd I assume. We flew in late that evening so we figured we would grab a late night meal. There was still a line outside Marquee, right across from Eggslut.

We ordered the Slut, one of their specialty items. Coddled egg on top of potato puree, topped with gray salt and chives, served with slices of baguette. It’s cooked with an immersion circulator so the egg was in perfect consistency. (more…)

I usually use Dine Out Vancouver as the opportunity to try restaurants that I’ve never been before. Even some of the institutions that have been around for a long time. One of which was Salmon House in West Vancouver. This year, they had a pretty appealing menu for DOV, and so Mr. and I invited Mama and Papa Lam to join us for dinner.


The first appetizer was the Lobster Bisque. It was rich and creamy, and you can taste the lobster essence. Mr. found it borderline salty, but to me it’s normal for most lobster bisque. What made this better was the addition of candied salmon; it added some sweetness to the savouriness, as well as accentuated the seafood flavours in the bisque.

We ordered some House Made Bread to go with our appetizers. For $3, 4 dinner rolls may seem pricey. But fresh, warm, house-made bread is always good and worth more. This was even better because two were regular bread, and two were cheesy bread. They were served with smoked salmon butter, and the salmon flavour was very prominent. If we were not conscious of the fact that it’s butter, we could probably keep eating it.

The Salmon House Sampler was a generous sized appy. (more…)

On one of my rare afternoons off, I finally got the chance to try the Twisted Fork. For those of you who don’t know, it’s a little restaurant tucked away along Granville, right before the bridge. It’s easy to miss if you’re not paying attention, but they do have their iconic fork sitting above the large window.

Crazy fork above!

We headed down around 12:30PM for a very late brunch on a Sunday, and it was a 45 min wait. Luckily, I wasn’t waiting alone so it wasn’t a big deal. I would say, most people who stuck around for the wait knew how good the food was.

The place was packed as expected. Interiors was small, cozy, with some unique decorations including a door up on the wall. The servers and the manager/owner were very friendly and informative.

Who doesn't love brunch?

I had the Eggs Benny with brioche. On top of my brioche was smoked salmon, poached egg, and hollandaise sauce with sides of sauteed spinach, baked beans, and hash browns. It was pretty damn near perfect. (more…)
