Catch Kitchen + Bar: Seafood with a View

Visiting the historic village of Steveston, although not really that far away, is still a treat for us… especially when the weather is sunny and the smell of the salt air mixes with the aroma of freshly fried fish and chips. That being said, we do like to try different restaurants so we wound up visiting Catch Kitchen + Bar located on the second floor above Blue Canoe Waterfront.

BierCraft Tap and Tapas (Commercial Drive): Belgian Mussels and Frites

During our July staycation, we were getting a hankering for some quality mussels and we headed down to our old stomping grounds on Commercial Drive only to be disappointed that our destination (Carthage Cafe) was closed despite their hours saying they should have been open.

Back in late June, we decided to take a hike up to the very popular (read: busy) Quarry Rock in Deep Cove. We generally don’t visit Deep Cove much due to the difficulties finding parking in the area.

Vancouver Fish Company – Granville Island

Supermarine is a newish restaurant that opened up in the former location of Abigail’s Party in Kits. There’s still remnants of Abigail’s in this tiny restaurant (sister restaurant to Wildebeest) as can be seen in the names of some of the cocktails as well as the name that appears on the bill that you receive at the end of your meal.

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.

Longtail Kitchen – Street Food

After my first visit to Longtail Kitchen in the Quay, I’ve been looking for an excuse to come back to try the rest of their menu.  Truth be told, they don’t have an extensive menu… but what they do have is all made quite well. Read the rest of this entry

La Cigale French Bistro – Moules Frites

La Cigale French Bistro is one of many small French restaurants that we love to visit in Vancouver. On the one hand, I wish it was closer to our home. On the other hand, it’s a good thing that it isn’t otherwise we’d put on too much weight.
