While I was in Vancouver for business, I had a lot of great food. Of course they had fresh seafood and just a bit of everything. Here’s a little rundown of all the fabulous treats this breathtaking city had to offer.
Our concierge at the hotel told us about a restaurant close to the hotel where we could get seafood and steak. My colleague and I headed to Joe Fortès and, because of the concierge, got right in. Kristin started off with oysters (I’m not a fan) and loved them. They had an oyster bar where a worker shucked them right there. Of course we had to have calamari. Whenever it’s on the menu I order it. I had a steak that was so tender and juicy. It had a great Cabernet jus sauce with it that just tipped it over the edge. Kristin had miso marinated sablefish and she proclaimed it the best fish she’s ever had.
Next we had breakfast at a quaint place, Caffè Artigiano, on our way to the convention center. I had the safest thing on the menu, omelet, and my coworkers had the Croque Madame and a panini. It was all delicious and a great way to start the morning.
Dinner that night was at Cordero’s where the view from the dining room was spectacular. I could look out at the mountains and water all day long. And all night too. I had the pork chops which were tasty. Unfortunately I forgot to get pics of what my colleagues had to eat.
On our second day of the conference ER had lunch at a little pub at the convention center, Mahoney and Sons. This was such good food. We started with yam fries that had a great aioli with it. These things were addictive. I had the Armstrong Cheddar & Irish Gammon Bacon Burger. Oh my this was delicious. The beef was tender and the bacon was out of this world. Kristin had a mushroom burger and Sheila had a traditional Irish Stew.
