Earls Port Coquitlam is a chain restaurant with many locations in Vancouver and the Lower Mainland. Tho some many shun big box chains away, I unashamedly don’t mind them. I can always trust on the standards and services provided and the food really is pretty good.
When the sun is out it seems like everyone in Vancouver is out dining on a Patio and some patios feels like I am dining on the road side (inhaling exhaust fumes and chewing on dust). The patio space at Earls Port Coquitlam is actually quite nice. It is off the side of a big parking lot, away from the smoky asphalt and has a couple gazebo seats. For the next hour (or depending on how many sangrias juggled), you too can pretend to escape the chaos and bob your head to the tunes…
Dominical Fish Tacos 12.25: two soft flour tortillas, grilled lime and coriander marinated wahoo, mango and avocado salsa, spicy valentina crema. The fish was soft and moist and nicely seasoned. The spicy valentine crema sauce reminds me of ranch mixed with some paprika (something that I can skip). And if the tortillas shells were crispy instead of soft that would be even better.
Santa Fe Chicken Salad 16.50: avocado, black beans, corn, dates, feta and organic greens, peanut lime vinaigrette, crispy tortillas (ours was fettucini), cajun spiced chicken. Lots of proteins, lean meat and complexities brings this salad to approximately a jaw dropping 800 calories according to the My Fitness Pal app. I love everything about this Southern / Mexican inspired salad and it left me satiated for the afternoon.
