Dine Out Vancouver is on. For Ontarians, this is similar to Winterlicious with many restaurants featuring prix fixe menus. There are 3 different levels of $18, $28, and $38. And each features an appetizer, dessert and entrée. We went last week to Blarney Stone’s $18 dinner and it was pretty good volume and food for $18.
Tonight we went to Wild Rice – also at the $18 level – and found that the food was excellent, the service was friendly, but a little mistake prone. But they fixed their mistakes and were quick about it. Probably because the place was sold out for due to Dine Out Vancouver!
In general, Emile and I are pretty cheap and watch calories, so we don’t eat out much. But somehow, we got ourselves this schedule:
Jan 30th: Wild Rice (just the two of us)
Feb 1st: Crepe Cafe (7 of us for post activity refueling)
Feb 2nd: The Boathouse (Grandpa taking us for dinner)
Feb 3rd: Salt Tasting Room AND The Pourhouse (friends in from Ontario)
I also received a coupon from Incendio – great pizza place now doing brunch – to offer us 2 for 1 brunch.
I miss Huntsville sometimes, but man do I love the restaurant scene here – especially those places within walking distance to our house!
