When I heard this supposed Commercial Drive gem was opeing a second location on Cambie, I was excited! The few times I went, I was impressed by the delicious tapas. I especially enjoyed the Filetdelphia Cheese Steak, which was the perfect balance of savory mignon and sweet cranberry salsa. However, because the tapas menu was so limited, we decided to go for brunch and try a different take on the menu.
While the tapas menu was great, the brunch menu was the evil step sister. I had the Huevos Divorciados, which was really nothing to write home about, but biggest kick in the teeth were the pancakes my friend ordered. They tasted bitter and definitely weren't cooked properly. No matter how much chocolate sauce my friend drowned his pancakes in, they still tasted like sand paper. Plus, he asked for bacon and got sausage. We were better off going to IHOP.
I decided to give them one more chance and check out the lunch menu. I ordered the mac and cheese, excited about the prospect of applewood smoked bacon in my pasta. Unfortunately, not only was there barely any bacon, or even bacon flavour, in my mac and cheese, but the pasta was undercooked!
To add insult injury, the service was less than stellar. When I went for lunch, I expected the delicious chips I've always gotten as a complimentary starter. However, the server never brought it. I also wanted more pop in the middle of my meal, but the server didn't bring it until she brought the bill, making the refill a little moot.
The tapas really was worth coming for, but because the tapas menu is so small, I've ordered everything within two visits. After that, its best not to come back because I've seen everything there is to see.
So I won't.
