ORU Restaurant1038 Canada Place, Vancouver
Submitted Thursday, May 6, 2010 - 12:25am [Dine in]

Went out to Oru for Dine Out Vancouver, I didnt have much expectations since I've heard from a couple people that the food wasnt good.
But boy was I wrong! My friend had the flank steak salad to start, which was good, not too chewy. My other friend had the lettuce and plum salad, however it was substituted with pineapple tonight, but it was still delicious! I had the miso sablefish, which was cooked beautifully, super succulent and came with cherry tomatoes that cut the richness of the fish.
For our mains, they had the butter chicken with naan and jasmine rice, it was good but I felt that I couldve had it at any Indian restaurant. I had the korean bbq pork loin, it was a 10oz portion on top of mashed potatoes and kimchi like veggies. Super tender and cooked medium, just the way I liked it.
We finished with each of the dessert, my favourite was the chocolate ganache tart, it was amazing! If their dine out menu is this good, I cant wait to go back for their regular menu

A First Time Hit!!!
Submitted Sunday, December 27, 2009 - 9:09pm [Dine in]

I finally went to Chambar for the first time today with my co-worker!
I have heard some much about this place but was always putting it off until today.
We arrived at about 5:30 without a reservation, which was not a problem, but was given heads up that the table was reserved at 7, which was still plenty of time for us to eat.
Started off with the Vin Blanc mussels - super tender and juicy and really really big for its price. We both ate a lot and still had to pack some!
Then we both shared the braised lamb shank - I felt that there was too much going on with this dish, so I didnt really like it. But the lamb was falling off the bone and the sauce was really good.
We also had the spice rubbed duck - it was really good. the goat cheese, poached apples and butternut squash puree really went well with the duck when they were all combined together. The tamarind gastrique was also very tasty.
Since I was craving something sweet, we decided to look over the dessert menu even though we were both really full.
We got the Le gateau poire - was a vanilla cake with raspberry anglaise and lemongrass icecream. This had to be the MOST amazing dessert that I've ever had. The lemongrass ice cream was citrusy and did not like that milky film behind and it had some kind of crumble on the bottom which went really well with it. Then we poured the raspberry anglais on the vanilla cake, which just came out of the oven, it was so heavenly! So glad we got dessert
Service was really good, except that we didnt really see our server and was helped by two other people, who were super nice and funny.
I would definitely reccommend this place for some one-on-one time with a friend or a lover.

Easy Going
Submitted Wednesday, December 23, 2009 - 3:23am [Dine in]

Came here last night with a couple of friends at around 9.
Wasnt very busy and was seated right away infront of the open kitchen.
The decor inside was very contemporary and kinda gives you a warm feeling at the same time.
The server was very friendly and sat down with us to discuss the menu since none of us could read spanish. He was very funny, charming and super knowledgable about the menu.
Gave some good suggestions.
Started off with the duck soft shelled tacos - could've used a bit more s&p
then came the jerked spiced scallops - good heat, not a big fan of black beans though, but good pineapple salsa
albacore tuna ceviche - smoked bacon + warmed purple potato? forgot what the purple mash was, but it was sooo good.
last but not least we had the bc sablefish which came on top of a bread like thing..cant really describe it with crushed corn nuts on top. the fish was super succulent and the bread thing was good.

The food was good but the service was awesome and I would definitely go back with a bunch of my friends or even by myself and hang around at the unique looking bar.
