October 6/2010, Wednesday, Sunny.
It’s a very nice day, we didn’t plan to go anywhere before hand, since its my girl friend birthday, I decided to take her up to Grouse Mountain to have dinner at the Observatory
dungeness crab napoleon, cucumbers, fennel, lime crème fraiche, sweet cecily foam
Pacific Ling Cod $39.00
mussels, clams, german butter potatoes, arugula, truffled velouté
Peach Semifreddo $13.00
basil champagne coulis, hazelnut brittle
We both have the same items as the above, despite the fancy name on the menu, basely
Appetizer is : Crab meat with slice cucumber;
Main course: Ling Cod with 2 clams, 2 mussels,
Desert: Slice peach with Ice Cream.
Taste of the food is rather flat and portion is very small, this so call fine dining place is more on presentation rather then taste. To me I like eat the food instead of looking at it. Apart from the view there is nothing special about this place. We are not a drinker; total bill for the food comes to $170. with tax and tips. We don’t eat at place like that very often, may be once every 5 years. . As a regular eat out (3-4 times a week) person myself, I personally prefer eating at place like The Kegs, Bridge and Cactus Club. It’s more comfortable and down to earth type of food. However, according to most of the reviews, they all like the place. I like the place myself to a certain degree but express my view for comparison purpose. This kind of place is for tourist and special occasion.
