A friend asked me what was one of the most memorable places I’ve eaten lately. I have to say Cacao Restaurant specializing in Progressive Latin cuisine out in Kitsilano, Vancouver. Dave and I both loved Chef Jefferson Alvarez’s fresh modern take on Latin American food with a playful note.
For example, take the chilled and aerated foie gras. It is fluffy and melts in your mouth as you are welcomed by pop rocks. To tie it all together, the sweet acidity of guava gel and catalina.
