Coquille Fine Seafood is restaurant for seafood lovers. It is located in Vancouver Gastown at 181 Carrall Street where Secret Location used to be. This pink restaurant features Millennial pink booth seats that reminds you of Oretta in Toronto and Sketch in London. You may remember local chefs and co-owners Lee Cooper and Jack Chen from L’Abattoir and general manager Liam Todd from Osteria Savio Volpe and Nightingale.
Coquille is open for lunch, happy hour, dinner and late-night drinks seven days a week. Menu focuses on fresh oysters, crudos, fish, shellfish and instagram worthy seafood platters.
Mackeral Crudo 14: bite worthy cucumber and scallions.
Burrata 17: delicious caponata with white anchovy and sourdough.
Red Sea Urchin 6/tongue: By far the creamiest and tastiest uni this season. Topped with salmon roe and seaweed. Priced to sell.
Mussels 19: plumped and juicy with bacon and cider.
Coquille could be my newest favourite restaurant and chic hang out spot. It is perfect for that date night and girls night out. I can’t wait to come back for more.

If you remember, Glowbal’s Society Dining Lounge you will be able to draw the connection with the neon purple lights and high ceilings. The decor itself draws inspiration from the traditional Chinese dynasty era layered with some cuteness.
21 Nautical Miles restaurant menu focus is fresh seafood. From Crab boil to A La Carte entrees.
- Black Pepper
- Spicy Szechuan
- Garlic Butter
Golden Fried Pepper Salt Calamari: Deep fried squid with salt and pepper. This is not spicy and fit for everyone.
House Spicy Spot Prawns: Flash fried spot prawns. However, this was not very spicy and missing some fragrant spices.
Skewers: There are 3 flavors available and reminds me a lot of the skewers available from the night market. The lamb and the beef is heavy with cumin spices. Chicken is marinated with satay and is tender and moist. Pork is braised for 48 hours.
- Lamb (cumin)
- Beef (cumin)
- Chicken (satay)
- Pork (48 hour braised)
Herbal Coconut Mussels: I liked the creamy coconut broth with juicy plump mussels. I do wish that there was some chilli oil and spicy to lift the profile. The side of bread garnished on the side did little for me. A side of garlic bread would have been appropriate.
Garlic Steamed Lobster Tail: Have you ever had lobster baked in cheese? This is quite popular in Hong Kong. The Lobster is succulent and fresh. The garlic sauce was delicious even though I tad strong and masked the natural sweetness of the lobster tail.
Abalone with House Special Sauce: Braised abalone in rich hoisin sauce. I wish for a light sauce to let the natural taste of abalone be the star.
Mango Thousand Layer Cake: This crepe cake is very delicious. The crepe layers are thin and soft with the right ratio of whipped cream and fresh mangos. Flown in directly from Taiwan.

Le Bremner Old Montreal is a hidden restaurant in a sunken underground spot at 361 Rue Saint Paul. It is the sister restaurant of Garde Manger, owned by Chef Chuck Hughes. It is easy to get to and the brisk walk around Vieux Montréal is delightful. We came here day two of our brief Montreal gluttony trip and crossed of Le Bremner on our “Montreal Must Eat List”. It’s a hard toss up between Nora Gray and here.
Montreal has a lot of these sunken spaces, back rooms and “caves”. These old buildings and candlelit bunkers were not the most photographic environment but I think our photos turned out ok. Despite the cool laid-back (yet still quite hipster) vibes; the restaurant was quite the gangbuster. The later it got, the busier it was. The same can be said about Grand Manger.
The staff was welcoming, friendly and one was even from Vancouver. He gave us a good list of Must Eat Restaurants in Montreal – broken down my meal of the day. Yes I will share this with you! After all, it’s always nice to be in the know.
We’ve read mixed reviews of Le Bremner, but was still quite interested to witness first hand what the finalist on the third season of Top Chef Canada, Chef Danny Smiles had to offer.
Tuna. Tahini. Cilantro 19: Buttery soft and velvety smooth sashimi with a slight kick.
Lobster, Lanbeh, Rosamarina and chips 25: Typically this is served over a brioche bun. Today: chips were cool and brioche was not. Loved the fresh lobster bites with ultra strained, lightly salty Middle Eastern yogurt. It’s a nice vehicle to dip and carry the lobster in. Chips > brioche any day!
Deep Fried Quail 16: Succulent. Scrumptious. Served with a side of ranch dressing and lemon to squirt. The quail was juicy and super crispy without the grease. Just eat this with your fingers! Enjoy it!
Cavatelli 27: with lamb neck and pecorino. We loved how al dente the pasta was. It had great bite and the rich braising juices and tender meat was to die for! This was a gluttonous trip for sure!!
Pancakes 11: Can I get the pancakes with the ice cream on top? NO! For crying out loud, that is butter? Remember the Munchies video on Vice? The best dessert is this sinful and over the top pancake stack with Pimm’s-spiked butter and a pool of syrup. Soak it up and don’t let a drop go to waste! What diet? Worry about going to maximizing your ClassPass later! Tomorrow you can eat clean Omnivore over salad platters and mezze!
