Nightingale | Dining In Vancouver

After having heard mixed reviews about Nightingale, one day we decided to check it out for ourselves. The restaurant, also owned by the same group as Hawksworth Restaurant, offers what they call "fresh and vibrant modern Canadian cuisine" and I think they're on the right track. Vegetables, pastas, pizzas and more are what you can find at this trendy establishment. It's definitely a place to be seen. The bar offers a wide range of cocktails and beverages, and on top of that their menu alone is extensive. There was so much to choose from it was simply overwhelming - so make sure you dine with lots of your friends and family. 

The cocktail featured here is their seasonal special we had during the summer, a Sherry Cobbler. It was a mix of a few different types of sherries - it was absolutely delicious! 

The food was very tasty and we were very happy with the quality of all the ingredients presented to us. We will definitely be back to try the many dishes we didn't get to taste! 

Food & Beverage: Sherry Cobbler - Fino + Amontillado were definitely in the cocktail, can't remember what else... either way it was fantastic, Burrata & anchovy on toast with peperonata and parsley, Crispy fried chicken with preserved lemon yogurt, dill and espelette, Cavatelli with braised wild boar, grilled kale and roasted apple.

Torafuku | Dining in Vancouver

A great spot for sharing plates and having delicious cocktails (during or not during happy hour). They also have a delicious sake list, including one of our favourite producers, Kozaemon Brewery. 

Torafuku features some great dishes with great ingredients, such as fresh seafood like octopus, or rice bowls and a very unique ramen bowl. There are different combinations of foods in each dish and they all have particularly delicious flavours. If you want a unique and tasty experience, Torafuku proves to be quite intriguing. The menu does change and the cocktails as well. 

Be sure to check them out in the Chinatown area of Vancouver! 

Food & Beverage: Bison Grass Fizz Cocktail, Ramen Bowl, Rice Cakes with Pork, Calamari, Octopus and Tuna poke, Egg and cream mushroom rice bowl, Oolong Infused Yuzu Jello Dessert with condense milk and crispy salted caramel.

Location: 958 Main Street, Vancouver

Fable | Vancouver Dining

 If you're looking for fresh ingredients with a twist, Fable is the place for you. I've found that, "Farm to table," has been a popular theme in Vancouver. Everyone is into fresh, local (and sometimes organic) produce - a great way to promote the amazing products BC has to offer. I found Fable Restaurant to be a great dining experience (minus the extreme heat you'll experience during the summer inside) that has tasty dishes and great service. I'll definitely be back at some point to see what's new.

From top to bottom: Rhubarb and strawberry soda with Fable syrup. Trout tartare. Spaghetti and Meatball with duck jus inside and a parmesan sauce (my favourite!). Schnitzel special.
