Au Comptior in Kitsilano seems to be all the craze lately. Brunch avec Paree style is a must. We couldn’t resist to start the day with a cafe au lait and a pain au chocolate.

We had a delightful Brunch a short while back and had to come back to try Au Comptoir’s dinner menu. After all, it is close to the beach where we could talk a stroll to work off all the calories.

SALADE VERCINGÉTORIX 12: Deliciously wrapped baby gem lettuce, garlic vinaigrette, lemon, soft-poached egg, gruyère. I liked the added anchovies for a bite of saltiness.

ASSIETTE DE CHARCUTERIE 18: house and artisan cured meats and pate served with bread and gerkhins. We particularly liked the pate with some dijon mustard.

[image_with_animation image_url=”13095″ animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”]

SAUMON À L’ UNILATÉRAL 24: pan seared salmon, tagliatelle, tarragon beurre blanc. The salmon had a nice crisp skin and yet still moist and tender inside. Al dente pasta completed this dish.

CARRÉ D’AGNEAU 35: medium rare roasted rack of lamb, crushed peas, potato rosti, artichoke.

Daily fresh dessert from the rotating glass display. They all looked so exquisite. It was hard to just pick one.

Linh Cafe Vancouver Kitsilano | Best Lobster Poutine

Linh Cafe Vancouver Kitsilano | Best Lobster Poutine

[image_with_animation image_url=”11184″ animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”]

Linh Cafe French-Vietnamese Restaurant is relatively new to the Kitsilano, Vancouver neighborhood. Just down the block is Au Comptoir – a classic Parisien cafe and The Juicery Co. I have been frequenting this neighborhood because of power yoga with ClassPass Vancouver.

Linh Cafe is a French restaurant with a Vietnamese twist. Or you can say it is a Vietnamese restaurant that is heavily influenced by French cuisine cooking. Lately, we’ve been hearing about all the rave about their pate sticks and lobster poutine.

[image_with_animation image_url=”11186″ animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”][image_with_animation image_url=”11178″ animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”]

Pate Chaud 6: Pork, wood-ear mushroom, shitake. Served with dijon mustard and homemade onion jam and fresh baked bread. We loved the flavorful pate and onion jam we had to ask for seconds. It was a good start to the meal.

[image_with_animation image_url=”11179″ animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”]

Goi Cuon Salad Roll 11:50: Made in house preserved pork, vermicelli, lettuce, fresh herbs. The price of twelve bucks for two rolls seems awfully steep. But considering a tasty pork pate and fresh herbs you can really distinguish was almost forgivable. The roll is loosely wrapped, so you can imagine my clumsy-self making a mess all over the table.

Half Butter Poached Lobster Pountine 21: Add house made sausage for 4.50. Peppercorn gravy, black forest ham, Swiss cheese, hand cut fries. This ludicrous looking delicious poutine was Linh Cafe’s entry to a poutine challenge. Pop the poached egg and let the egg yolk run. Smother it over the rich, peppery gravy and crispy fries. I love the natural combination of ham and Swiss cheese but the butter poached lobster really takes you downtown!

On the side was more fresh crusty French bread so you can soak up all the greasy, gravy and sauce.

[image_with_animation image_url=”11182″ animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”][image_with_animation image_url=”11181″ animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”]

Duck Roti 23.95: Tender, roasted duck confit, glazed grapes & apples, and duck sauce. The duck was ever so tender and cooked perfectly. It takes approximately 30 minutes into the meal to arrive but it was so worth it! Even if that meant an extra sesh at spin class the next morning! I had to book myself a double spin cycle class with the ClassPass app. Served with buttery mash potatoes and more crusty French bread to soak up ever ounce of the duck fat.

 

I really can’t wait to come back to Linh Cafe for brunch. Their Banh Mi Pork Rillettes Sandwich with Ciabatta, pull pork, dijon mayo, onion jam, and lettuce sounds amazing.

And if you are wondering… Service is very attentive and friendly.

Tractor Foods Vancouver Kitsilano | Eat Clean, Healthy Foods

[image_with_animation animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self” img_link=”http://bit.ly/1woSoDA” image_url=”9982″]

Tractor Foods Vancouver Kitsilano woos salad lovers and calls to foodies in need of clean living. Let’s face it, while a Crab Meat and Halibut Egg Benny is divine and Pulled Pork Pancakes sounds sinful – it really does the waistline no good. I always end up having regret meals and set a goal to do a juice cleanse to give myself a well deserved detox. Tractor Foods is about making healthy choices in a “fast food” setting. Choose from a selection of soups, salads, stews and sandwiches made with local, seasonal and healthy ingredients. Pay for your real food at the counter and enjoy a meal in the sun-room patio. Maybe after slimming down on lunch you wouldn’t feel so bad about having an ice cream cone over atRain or Shine Ice Cream across the street. Hey! I’m always about eating a healthy balanced diet.

Butternut squash soup $6 + Roasted cauliflower, chickpeas, radicchio, orzo, feta cheese, kalamata olive dressing $3.25: Butternut squash soup is one of my favorites. It is delicious, filing and completely good for you. Butternut squash benefits includes vital poly-phenolic anti-oxidants and vitamins A. The butternut has very low calories – 100 g provides just 45 calories. Roast cauliflower and orzo salad has a nice bite and textures. Clearly my mouth doesn’t get too bored vs eating straight romaine lettuces.

Tomato fennel soup $6: a light, spicy and tangy tomato soup. It is refreshing on a hot day. But if you are looking for something more filing perhaps consider the Morroccan Chicken with chickpeas stew.

Pork Sandwich $5 half | $9 whole : Roast pork, wild arugula, tomato, roasted garlic aioli, provolone cheese, sourdough bread. This tasty sammy has everything going for it. I loved the cheese, the bitter arugula to cut the fat, the roast pork just because I love pork and tomato for added zing.

[image_with_animation image_url=”9985″ animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”]

Arugula, grilled pears, candied walnuts, blue cheese, lemon champagne vinaigrette salad 3.25: Simple and light. Sweetness of pear, crunchiness of walnuts, creaminess of blue cheese and tartness of lemon vinaigrette.
