Trafalgars Bistro2603 West 16th Ave., Vancouver
The all important patio mimosa

...The perfect place to indulge dreams of consistent patio weather and French cafe life. Trafalgars is a surprise pocket-of-life on the long stretch that is 16th avenue. The Avenue of not-in-your-Dreams. The small and intimate street-side patio is perfect groups of two surrounded by other groups of two equally engrossed in each others’ company. We ordered Mimosas, Roasted Chicken salad with pineapple relish and potato gnocchi croutons ($16), the Chicken and Brie panini with cranberry chutney and vindaloo mayonnaise ($15), and Creme Brulee for dessert ($ who cares, it was so good).

The pakoras were heaven (nearly better than Rangoli’s) and we both agreed that gnochhi croutons were a stroke of genius. The panini was, refreshingly, not the greasy-on-the-outside kind, though we think it could have used more punch. I dipped it in the pakora sauce which was my own stroke of genius.

In total, the bill came to about $70.00 with tip, but we accidentally ordered sparkling water (don’t you hate when that happens?) so that would have saved us a few dollars. Yes, it’s a splurge, but it offers more personality and escapism-dining than Earls ever can, and for nearly the same price. I loved it!

A piece of French Countryside in Langley
Submitted Sunday, April 6, 2008 - 1:34pm [Dine in]

We had a wonderful celebration here on Saturday for lunch and were absolutely thrilled with the whole experience. Read more and see pictures at www.champagnewednesdays.com

We are still recovering from our feast!

First things first, order a glass (or bottle) of the buttery Bacchus Chardonnay. Then, ask yourself, do I like butter? Do I like cheese? Do I like bacon? If you answer yes to any or all of these, then you will understand our ordering dilemma. The wine will help lubricate whatever reluctance you might feel in ordering the entire menu. After all, it was a long drive. Who knows when you’ll be back?

We had: three perfectly puffed onion tarts, 3 cauldrons of French onion soup, 1 prawns andalouise, 1 crepes with ham, gruyere and mornay sauce, 2 spinach salads with blue goat cheese and candied walnuts, 1 quiche with tomato and okra, 2 lemon tarts, 3 chocolate mousse with prailine crusts and 3 bottles of wine.
