Calabash Bistro Vancouver serves up Caribbean curries, jerk chicken, and fall off the bone BBQ Ribs. This casual unpretentious restaurant is located on 428 Carrall St between Pender and Hastings Street in Chinatown. Tonight we were invited to try our their Valentine’s Day Menu available now until February 16th!
We were invited by Tangoo along with few fellow bloggers for menu tasting at Calabash Bistro.
We started the evening with a few cocktail specials like this Lady Saw: Diplomatico Blanco rum, fresh lemon juice, house made apple and pomegrante syrup.
Roti and Dip: Spicy roti with your choice of jerk chicken, jerk veggie, curry chicken or curry veggie sauce. Ask for some Dahi yogurt sauce if it gets too heated. I personally prefer adding more spicy pepper sauce for some that extra kick!
Rib Platter $50: House seasoned BBQ Calabash ribs, jerk chicken, fried plantain, coleslaw, jerk fries, and seasonal veggies. We really liked the tender fall off the bones ribs.
Seafood Platter $50: Pepper butter prawns, coconut curried cod with Mango served with fried plantain, spicy corn and chickpeas, rice and peas and seasonal vegetables.
Veggie Platter $40: Curried coconut confit potatoes, ginger plantain, spicy corn and chickpeas, mixed organic greens served with rice and seasonal veggies. I really liked the chickpeas and sweet corn mix. It is great for someone looking for a plant-base alternative or trying to avoid gluten.
Lastly, dessert! Coconut dumplings made with cornmeal flour, butter, brown sugar. Served with chocolate ganache and rum marinated fruits.
Head downstairs after dinner Calabash Bistro and take advantage of their dance floor. Every Friday night jam to 90’s RnB / HipHop and on Saturdays it is Reggae.
Calabash offers a casual alternative to Vday celebrations. Or for the awkward first date you want to positive energy to break the awkwardness!
