Burgoo (Point Grey): Comfort Food

Burgoo is the place to go to when you’re craving some real comfort food. Pretty much everything on their menu spells out dishes that warm and fill your belly like mac & cheese and chicken pot pie. They don’t just focus on one region of cuisine either… they have Mexican, Thai, French, British, American, etc… as long as it’s comfort food, you’ll find it here. While they have 5 locations around town, this visit was to their Point Grey location on W 10th Ave.

For some people, going to a restaurant named “The Slaughterhouse” located steps away from Blood Alley, might give you pause for thought.

La Régalade – French Onion Soup

We’ve been to La Régalade before and enjoyed our visit (see our previous post) but we don’t always find ourselves out in West Van too often.  Fortunately, they open for brunch (Fri, Sat, Sun @ 11:30am) so we dropped by on the weekend last November.  It was empty when we first arrived but got busier as noon approached.

La Régalade French Bistro

I’ve been thinking about trying out La Régalade for a long time but West Vancouver is a bit far for us to travel on a regular day.  Luckily, they’ve started to open on Sundays so we came by for an early dinner. Read the rest of this entry
