Posts Tagged ‘English Bay’

Summer is (finally) here and all kinds of frozen treats have been popping up in Vancouver. I remember seeing on Sean‘s Facebook feed one day that he discovered this ice cream sandwich food truck at English Bay. And then one sunny day, Nancy and I checked out Innocent Ice Cream Food Truck.

Innocent Ice Cream has a simple menu. One thing: Ice Cream Sandwich. Owner Asacia put together the concept to feature ice cream sandwiches using hand crafted ice cream and gluten-free cookies. Yes, gluten-free cookies! Because things are made in small batches, it allows her to use seasonal ingredients and rotate different flavours.

Between the two of us, we tried two sandwiches. I’m a sucker for salted caramel ice cream, so I picked the Salted Caramel Ice Cream, paired with Fudge Brownie Cookie. (more…)

Last year, Beach Bay Cafe popped up in the space where Raincity Grill used to be. Since then, they’ve made some slight adjustments on the menu direction, as well as found a new executive chef, so with their Dine Out participation, I decided to give it a try.

To start, Mr. ordered the Seafood Chowder. It’s creamy, wasn’t super thick, yet loaded with lots of ingredients. Every spoonful there were chunks of potato and carrot and seafood such as shrimp, mussels and squid. There’s smokiness and savoury flavours coming from the bacon as well as crispy leeks. I had a few spoons and I quite liked it; Mr. had most of it and thought it’s a bit too salty for him.

For an extra $4, I had 1/2 Dozen Oysters for appetizer. The night’s feature was Little Wing oysters; they were not too big in size, but had a deep cup shell. The flesh tasted clean and crisp with a hint of sweetness. I’ve never had this kind before and thought they were pretty good. The oysters were paired with an apple mignonette, which was on the sweet side, so you had to add a squeeze of lemon juice to bring a bit more acidity.

I’ve ordered mostly seafood dishes during Dine Out, so I switched things up with an order of the Confit Duck Leg. Wow loved the crispy skin on the duck leg! (more…)
