Passion Fruit, Coconut, Purple Curry // Chef @stefancook prepared this unique Indian inspired dessert. The "puck" as chef Stefan described it, was what we believed to be a passion fruit ice cream encased in a thin layer of delicate chocolate. The unique part of this dessert was the #purplecurry crumble on top. The curry was specifically imported from a chef in Germany who began making his own curry blends due to the lack of spices that were available in his region of Germany. As it turns out, curry works well in desserts! // #thehungrycouple #baullywood
Decisions decisions! // Who knew Sunday lunch could be such a dilemma? We went to @docklunch_offmain in hopes of finally trying Elizabeth's home cooked #soulfood, however she had unfortunately already sold out by the time we arrived. So then we went with plan B @yolksbreakfast, since I have been seriously craving their #lemontrufflehash, however we were told it would be an hour wait! So on to plan C, @redwagoncafe for #pulledporkpancakes (one of J's favourites). After putting our names down and standing in the cold for a good 20 minutes we grew more and more hungry, meanwhile trying to ignore that fact that @tacofinovan was just across the street without a wait… but we caved. Luckily for us, Tacofino never fails ?? // The #friedchicken burrito has NACHO CRUSTED CHICKEN. Yes, you read that right. Along with pea shoots, cabbage, salsa, guac, and black chili oil. Happy Sunday everyone! #thehungrycouple #tacofino
You know when something is called "Illegal Chocolate Waffle" it's going to be bad ass!! Waffles topped with pure melted milk Belgian chocolate, milk chocolate shavings, caramelized bananas and extra goodies on the side is perfect for any sweet tooth! Check out this unique place just recently opened in the west end! Not only is this a chocolate lovers paradise, they serve brunch too!
What's your fave deep fried food?! And where's the go to spot to get it? Chicken and waffles is my faves. My new fave place for it is @chewiesoysterbar ! Chicken thata crunchy on the outside and juicy on the inside. ANNNDDD they were boneless ahah. So alll meaaattt. The waffles were fluffy but needed a bit of crisp on the outside. But still very good! ————————————————————————————-# PANDAFEED for a feature!!
Meat Mondays– plain and simple! . Pictured: Central burger with fries from @dubhlinngatemainst (St Helens patty topped with Dubliner cheese, pulled pork, house made cucumber pickles, tobacco onions, chipotle and BBQ sauce.) . These are served with rosemary fries and bacon mayo but ask for some of their tartar sauce if you get a chance, it's bombbbb. Thanks to @pork_ninjas and @dubhlinngatemainst for the invite ??
?Location: Minami Yaletown. . ? Service: Overall excellent. Our server was quite attentive. . ? Pictured: Salmon Oshi Sushi (front) and Ebi Oshi Sushi (back). . ? Food: Absolutely in love with their aburi oshi sushi! The pressed salmon was torched to perfection giving off a smokey flavour with every bite. Complemented with the richness of the Miku sauce and a kick from the jalapeños, it really brought out the freshness of the salmon. The ebi oshi was accompanied by lime zest and ume sauce, which made the oshi taste very light and refreshing. But to truly determine if the oshi is good or not, you need to look at the rice. In this case, the rice was tender yet firm enough to be pressed into little rectangles of deliciousness. With the lift of the chopsticks, the oshi passed the test of not falling apart instantly. . ? Comments: The ebi oshi was yummy, but it wasn't as good as the salmon oshi, so we probably would've been happy with just doubling the order of the salmon oshi. . #minami #japanese #aburi #oshi #salmon #ebi #igersvancouver #vancityeats #vancityfoodie #vancityfood #yvreats #yvrfood #yvrfoodie #gastropostvan #gastropost #dhvanfood #604eats #eeeats #yaletown #foodporn #coupleeats #thefoodiescouple
I kept forgetting to post this photo so I'm going to post it now randomly! Went to @cottoenoteca for a staff holiday lunch and we got a bunch of appetizers (which were really good btw) and I got their Salmone Pizza! Basically like a breakfast pizza, smoked salmon, capers, 63 degree egg, chives, hollandaise sauce! I was a bit disappointed with the pizza because the crust was dry and hard to cut through, theres no sauce under the salmon so it took a lot of effort to cut the pizza ?. ?: Salmone from @cottoenoteca
Which one of these yummy plates are you dying to try?
