Shaughnessy Restaurant – Niçoise Salad

We’ve dined at the Shaughnessy Restaurant located adjacent to VanDusen Gardens many times in the past. It’s a great place to grab a bite before walking it off in the gardens.

We were always a fan of their Garden Cup Ginger Ale but didn’t see it on their menu this time around. Fortunately, our server said that he could whip up a couple for us. Fizzy, fruity, and refreshing! Note that since the last time we were here, they no longer offer this drink (hope they bring it back one day).

Another dish that we’ve had here many times in the past is their Hot Crab and Shrimp Croissant ($18). The flaky croissant pairs well with the creamy filling and cheesy melt.

I was in the mood for something different this time around so I picked the Niçoise Salad ($19) – pronounced like ni’swaz. This salad, which is named for its city of origin, Nice, contains seared rare tuna, green beans, baby potatoes, sun-dried tomatoes, olives, hard-boiled egg, organic greens, and a French sherry vinaigrette. The flavours in this salad were perfectly balanced

On a subsequent visit, we ordered the Chicken Pot Pie ($18) with a creamy filling including peas and corn and topped with an ever so delicate but flaky crust.

The Lobster Benny ($24) comes with smashed hash browns and a crisp, toasted English muffin that’s topped with two poached eggs with a nice runny yolk when you pop it.

Touristy? Yes. But overall, some pretty solid eats here and a beautiful backdrop.
