The Teahouse – Scenic Views and Seafood Galore
The Teahouse makes the perfect pit stop while enjoying the dazzling views from Stanley Park. We stopped by for a visit last June after hiking around Lighthouse Park in West Vancouver. After a short jaunt across the Lion’s Gate Bridge, we luckily found parking right outside the restaurant.
Since we were thirsty from our hike, we started off with the Siwash Sunset (pineapple juice, fresh strawberries, and cinnamon) as well as a Raspberry Lemonade. While the cinnamon wasn’t too overpowering, I preferred the lemonade.
They brought out some complimentary bread to tide us over while our meals were being prepared. Loved that this crusty bread was still warm and soft inside… funny how something as simple as bread and butter can taste so good.
The Coal Harbour Clam Chowder was Manhattan-style and super chunky.
Our main reason for us coming here was for the Mussels… we’ve had some pretty good mollusks here before. They serve it in a tomato and white wine base with garlic and fennel. The mussels were a bit on the smaller side this time but still tasty.
The special of the day was a 4oz lobster tail with ling cod and pesto crostini. If that wasn’t enough, they also tossed some clams, salmon, prawns, and mussels to round out the dish.
