For a going-away party, Mr. and I went to St. Regis Bar and Grill near Pacific Centre. Because it’s connected to the hotel and judging by its exterior, I’ve always thought this is a high end bar; to my surprise, it’s just a fancier sports bar and the menu is quite reasonable. We were seated in the downstairs area, which is a huge open space for parties. In addition to the 12-15 of us, there was another group of 20+ guys. And there’s still tons of space left.


I ordered the Sirloin Beef Dip and paid an extra $1 for yam fries and chipotle mayo. The menu says garlic baguette but what I got was toasted brioche, soft and pillowy, not hard and crunchy like baguette. I don’t mind that since I’m a sucker for brioche bread. There was a decent amount of meat, pretty tender and had good flavour. What made this a tasty sandwich was the dipping jus. The bun and meat just sucked up all the flavours from the jus and then you just can’t help but keep eating it. The yam fries was crispy on the outside and sweet and soft inside. The chipotle mayo was rather oily so I opted for some ketchup instead. All this, was only for $13 (including the extra $1 for yam fries) – I say a pretty good deal.
