[image_with_animation image_url=”12043″ animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”]

Kitchen On Main is a restaurant with a hidden garden patio that took over the space from Crave on Main. Gone are the days of fried chicken and waffles. Now it is all about all sorts of balls – meatballs that is. Kitchen On Main is within walking distance to neighbor restaurants Nomad, The Acorn, and Sushi Mania Japanese Restaurant.

Chef Uli Schnur and Herschel Miedzygorski focus on presenting metro Vancouver with unique meatballs: beef, chicken, lamb, poke, ruben and kale with quinoa. There is something for everyone. There is even meatballs egg benedict.

We were invited to sample some of their heavy hitters during a beautiful sunny day in Vancouver. We took a seat in the hidden garden patio, away from the busyness of Main Street. If you are driving by you probably wouldn’t even know it exists. Perhaps you would think the tiny counter of “heated seats” was what they offered. There are around 10 tables in the garden patio filled with umbrellas, flowers, etc.

Salsiccia 18: this was our favorite of all the dishes. Served with apple in a creamy tomato sauce tossed with gnocchi.

Chicken Balls 16: served in a creamy pesto sauce. The presto sauce was pretty tasty.

Homemade Cheesecake 7: today’s special was a chocolate mixed berry base. An interesting take on chocolate cake.
