Earls Kitchen + Bar (Station Square): Not Bad

It’s taken a few years, but the Station Square area is starting to finally come together and be revitalized with a bunch of new development. Sure enough, this also means that a lot of newer restaurants are popping up here… including fancy iterations of Cactus Club and their perennial competitor, Earls. I mean, they’re right next to each other here (did you know that Cactus Club was opened by former Earls servers and are owned by the same family?)

Crab Park Chowdery: Clam Chowder and Grilled Cheese

It was a dark and stormy night in late November when I first visited Crab Park Chowdery. Located in the heart of Gastown (about a 10 minute walk to Crab Park), this place has been on my radar for quite some time. I mean, who doesn’t like chowder?

Wayfarer Restaurant (Cannon Beach Road Trip 2016)

A few years ago, we took a road trip down the Oregon coast. But because we were in such a rush, we didn’t get a chance to stay and spend some quality time at Cannon Beach. On our road trip to Portland this year, we knew we needed to correct this and decided to focus just on Cannon Beach.

Vancouver Fish Company – Granville Island

Vancouver Fish Company is a restaurant located near the front of Granville Island that opened up about a year ago in the former spot of Whet Kitchen. On the inside, it doesn’t look like they’ve done much redecorating as it has the same vibe of wood tables and black booths.

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.

Earls (Fairview) – Croque Madame

I remember back in the 80’s when the Earls on West Broadway at Fir used to have large decorative parrots adorning the outside of the building.  Back then, there were actually 2 Earls within 7 blocks of each other on West Broadway (which would always cause confusion when we met up with friends for dinner).

Earls Kitchen + Bar (Lansdowne)

For some reason, I always forget that there is an Earls located in Lansdowne Mall.  Maybe it’s because the mall entrance to this restaurant is usually closed requiring you to enter from outside of the mall.  I’m only bringing this up because when we came by to visit this Earls in February, we walked right by the outside entrance and spent a perplexing few moments trying to find the mall entrance.  We eventually went back outside the mall and entered through their outside entrance and sat down to enjoy some comfortable eats.
