The Ginger Beef is legit. It is the original family recipe from The Silver Inn in Calgary.
The Deck Kitchen at the Pacific Gateway Hotel in Richmond (near the YVR Airport)
recently renovated. The menu focus is West Coast Cuisine with locally sourced ingredients. Their Ginger Beef is legit. It is the original family recipe from The Silver Inn in Calgary. The owner is related.
If you remember the old Pier 73, the 70’s bar was old, tired and the food wasn’t very good. The Deck is now modern, spacious and has a gorgeous patio view.
It’s actually funny because I’ve seen their patio deck up for expansion, renovation and the wait for permits – my office is literally just around the corner.
The other day, I came here for media tasting with Sherman. It was great catching up.
GINGER BEEF $16: This tender meaty ginger beef was crispy with a nice thin coat of chilli sauce without being too sweet. It uses nice cuts of striploin. Trust me, it is not chewy and dry! The recipe is a family legacy since 1975.
FISH N CHIPS 1 piece $18 / 2 pieces $22: This nice crispy golden flaky lingcod is served with a side of crispy fries and slaw and tartar sauce. The slaw was a bit watery and I’ve gotten to take preference on a no-mayo coleslaw instead.
DOUBLE DECK BURGER $19: This meaty 8 oz burger was pretty solid and is filled with thick-cut crispy bacon, fresh tomatoes, cheese, lettuce, tomato, pickle, burger sauce, fries & salad garnish.
MOULES FRITES $9: This is always one of my favourite patio orders. The juicy and plump mussels were served in a nice butter, garlic, white wine, tomato, herbs broth. Comes with a side of golden crispy fries.
STEVESTON Flatbread $16: This thin and crunchy flatbread included clams, prawns, garlic cream, crispy potato, mozza, bacon, fennel, and mirepoix. The white cream sauce and cheese was a nice mellow pairing to the fresh seafood ingredients.
TUNA STACK $18: furikake albacore, yam, cucumber, avocado, ssamjang, eel sauce, sticky rice, sesame tempura crisp, nori. This was perhaps my least favourite as it was a little too saucy and overpowered the albacore tuna profile.
CALAMARI FRITO $14: potato starch, jalapeños, preserved lemon, yam, crispy onion, cilantro, cocktail sauce, lime aioli. Perhaps a little too batter for my liking but the calamari themselves were super fresh!
Deep-Fried Sea Bass (off the menu): I love fish and this deep fried sea bass was tender, moist and perfectly cooked. The green onions and soy dressing was delightful. I could eat this all day!
Overall, I love the rebranding. The Deck in Richmond is a great place to visit for food and drinks with killer views and a spacious patio – especially on a nice summer’s day.

What does one think of when you travel to San Diego? When I was there recently all I could think of was all the attractions – Legoland (be sure to try Granny’s Apple Fries), Sea World , San Diego Zoo, USS Midway Aircraft Carrier Museum, etc. Little did I think to go to Old Town San Diego – They have some really authentic Mexican food such as Old Town Mexican Cafe or La Jolla until I started researching for my San Diego trip. Let’s begin with La Jolla (lə-hoy-ə)!
La Jolla (meaning “The Jewel” in Spanish) is an upscale beach community in San Diego home to breathtaking beautiful beaches, gorgeous scenery along curving coastlines of the Pacific Ocean in Southern California and northern perimeters of San Diego.
Georges At The Cove is nestled in this beautiful community of fine restaurants, hotels, art galleries, eclectic collection of boutiques and astounding beaches much resembles White Rock 60 mins drive from Vancouver, BC for its laid-back atmosphere. 180 degrees overlooking La Jolla Cove, George’s is a great place to visit to experience San Diego’s lifestyle… Soak in ocean mist and experience innovative, contemporary fresh seafood.
Much like the Market (Jean-Georges) in Vancouver, George’s At The Cove also offers multiple dining experiences – ie. three levels to their venue. 1. Rooftop terrace – casual menu with ocean mist and breathtaking view of the coastline; 2. Midlevel bar – lounge area with some water view; 3. Lower Level – formal dining (George’s California Modern) with selected tables offering some water view. I hear this section offers some of the best food available. Executive Chef and Partner, Trey Foshee (tweet him @TreyFoshee) joined forces with California Olive Ranch (COR), North America’s largest olive oil producer since 1999 bringing culinary freshness and innovations to La Jolla.
Marinated and Grilled Fresh Fish Tacos $13: Soft shell tacos were warm and the fish was seasoned perfectly and the juicy sauces just drips down your hand. Be prepared, it gets somewhat messy. Mango salsa, jalapeno-lime creme fraiche, guacamole and shredded cabbage gave a refreshing lift to every bite. Served with Christmas color tortilla chips and pickled veggies.
Seared Rare Ahi $15: An abundant of perfectly seared ahi tuna over a bed of chilled Japanese soba noodle salad with wasabi-soy vinaigrette. The flavors were just right and did not overpower the tender pieces of tuna.
Blackened Seasonal Fish Sandwich $13.50: Avocado, lettuce, onions, tomato,cucumber-yogurt relish. Served with a bed of mixed spring greens. Light yet filling. Seasoned fish was just right!
Grilled Niman Ranch Beef Burger $12.50: Served with lettuce, tomato, onion and fries with maytag blue cheese, sweet onion marmalade with pepper jack and roasted anaheim chile +2.50 with aged cheddar and bacon +2.50. So big it is hard biting into. Holding it was challenging even for the boys. The patty was cooked delicious juicy. The fries were crispy and not oily. Overall a great burger to get your hands dirty with.
Mexican Style Shrimp Cocktail $14: Spicy tomato sauce with cucumber, onion, lime, cilantro and avocado

Stay for the night if possible, it is truly gorgeous during sunset and when it gets dark. The boardwalk along side the coastline is tantalizing while you overlook sea otters sleep and play in the waters.
