It’s hard to believe that I’ve lived in Vancouver all of my life but I’ve never eaten at The Teahouse in Stanley Park. We took the opportunity to stop by for lunch while the sun was making a last valiant hurrah before the end of summer.
Located in picturesque Stanley Park, one of the best things about eating at The Teahouse is the view. Fortunately, the food is just as good.
We started out with the Coal Harbour Clam Chowder. The chowder was fresh although I think I prefer a creamier style chowder.
There’s nothing yummier than hot and fresh bread… except maybe dipping the hot fresh bread into the tasty broth that accompanies the Mussels Provencal.
These mussels were the best that we’ve had in a long time… huge, plump, and fresh – this could be a meal unto itself. And the broth was to die for.
It was tough to choose what to have but I finally decided with the Fish and Chips. The beer battered ling cod was crunchy on the outside and moist and flaky on the inside and were paired perfectly with the skinny fries.
We also got the Roasted Sablefish with red and yellow beets, veggies, potatoes and a deep fried melon. The sablefish, marinaded in a miso soy sauce, was buttery soft with large, dense flakes.
The service at The Teahouse was wonderful (I love when restaurants refill your water glass without having to be asked). I’d definitely want to come back for the mussels again some time!
