Remember the time when 850 Thurlow Street used to be The Corner Suite Bistro with Tiffany blue chairs. Today Purple Olive Grill Vancouver has transformed this space into a sport bar with big screen TVs. The Purple Olive Grill reminds me of BCIT and is filled with students. We came here for the $29 for Three-Course Dinner for Two People, Drinks Included at Purple Olive Grill (Value up to $60.25) SocialShopper deal.
SocialShopper $29 gets you 1. your choice of two appetizers such as a Caesar salad or French onion soup; 2. two entrees – your choice from any burger, pasta, pizza, or main dishes; and 3. one dessert – tiramisu cheesecake or lava cake. That’s a pretty sweet deal.
CAESAR SALAD 5.95: Crisp romaine lettuce, croutons & parmesan tossed with their house-made dressing. Greens were fresh and washed.
FRENCH ONION SOUP 5.95: Your fast and dirty French Onion Soup. Not one that is baked hot with gruyere cheese.
PURPLE OLIVE BURGER 7.95: Crisp thick juicy bacon, lettuce, melted cheddar & sautéed mushrooms. All Burgers are served with tossed green salad and your choice of potatoes or fries. Options to lettuce wrap your burger. Sub Caesar Salad + 1.00.
BLACKENED SALMON 11.95: Fresh spring salmon fillet seasoned in cajun spices. The fish was cooked right but on the liberal side. On the side our signature potatoes, tossed green salad & French garlic bread
TIRAMISU CHEESECAKE 5.95; Coffee-flavored cheese cake nestled on a chocolate gotham crust & topped with a layer of espresso-enhanced white cake. This is a dense cake and not your typical tiramisu. I may option for the lava cake if given a second chance.
Stick to burgers and fries at the Purple Olive Grill and you will be golden. Draft beers like Okanagan Spring Pale Ale or Sleeman Honey Brown goes for 4.95 / pint or 16.95 / pitcher. Import Beers 5.95. And shots are 4.50 each. Not a bad hang out place to grab a few rounds and watch some UFC.
For $29 I can’t really complain. Had I paid a full $60 I probably would have been quite mad.
