Torafuku Vancouver | Lunch Menu

Torafuku in Vancouver’s Chinatown is now open for lunch service and I’m very excited. I’ve been a fan of this “Lucky Tiger” since it started as an Asian Fusion food truck “Le Tigre”. I’ve been here for events and during Dine Out Vancouver – not […]

The Red Accordion Vancouver

The Red Accordion Vancouver

The Red Accordion opened earlier in the February 2019, taking over the old location of Forkhill Bistro, The Fat Badger and Le Gavroche on Alberni Street. To be honest, I had to visit this location since Le Gavroche days when it started becoming underwhelming. And it wasn’t for Sherman generously inviting me, I probably wouldn’t have approached this restaurant so soon. If you’ve been following @instanomss on Instagram, then you would have already seen the IG stories and how delicious the food is. Unfortunately, it’s been a real struggle to literally get the post up on the blog.

We came here to sample the burger for the Burger Challenge.

TRA Burger 22: The burger itself was meaty, juicy and flavourful. It is constructed with Brandt Lake Waygu ground chuck, Mozza & jalapeño Havarti cheese, sun-dried tomato & roasted garlic aioli, arugula, crispy pancetta, beefsteak tomato, pickled red onion & homemade bun; Served with Kennebec fries on the side. To make things significant, we also added a fried egg. My only wish was that the bun was brioche, toasted and made bigger to hold the meat patty without getting soggy thru and thru.

“Play With Fire” Shishito Peppers 12: When I saw this on the menu, I knew I had to order it right away! If it was anything link AnnaLena’s I would’ve been satisfied. The deep-fried shishito peppers were served with Spanish chorizo, onions, garlic, Maldon salt, and California olive oil. I loved the charring and aromatic smokiness. This is a great appetizer to snack on during Happy Hour over an alcoholic beverage.

Daily Special – Burrata with Foraged Mushrooms 26: Unlike the lightly sautéed mushrooms from Papi’s Seafood. This dish had a heavy broth which drowned the creamy fresh taste of the burrata and overpowered the shaved black truffle and greens. Overall, this was a pretty aromatic earthy dish, but my personal preference would have liked the cheese sing on its own. Served with a side of crunchy charred bread.

Daily Special – Tempura Mexican Prawns MP: This tastes like the shrimp toasts I had as a child during dim sum, only crispier. Coated with panko and served, a sweet nuoc cham sauce (which tasted a lot like Thai chili sauce) over fried egg whites.

Steamed Mussels & Fried Dough 22: On of our favourite of the evening was the large honey mussels, cooked to perfection – juicy and plump. The delicate tastes were well balanced with the Asian Fusion broth made with lemongrass, ginger, turmeric, bok choy, shitake mushrooms, smoked paprika oil, tomato & coconut milk. Served with fried bread similar to bannock to soak up all the broth.

Haida Gwaii Humbolt Squid 16: lightly coated and seasoned, the squid was perfectly cooked with a crispy outside and tender inside. Served with tangy lemon aioli, smoked salt, chimichurri.

Lobster “It’s the Claw” Gnocchi 30: This was a very rich and heavy dish to end our meal. Generous amount of lobster claw meat and soft-pillowy potato gnocchi in a lobster bisque, creamy fennel, spicy rose, and fresh herbs. I would definitely recommend that this dish be shared.

Chocolate Budino 10: There is always room for dessert, especially a chocolate Budino made with dark chocolate, olive oil, Maldon salt, and served with orange essence pound cake. Although the budino was super-rich, it was not too heavy. It is mildly sweet. The touch of Cayenne pepper on the side was a nice addition and adds a great depth of complexity when dipped.

So next time when you are looking to impress your date, I highly recommend you take them here. The place is intimate and makes for a perfect date night restaurant to snuggle to over delicious eats.

Papi’ Seafood & Oyster Bar Vancouver | English Bay

Papi’ Seafood & Oyster Bar Vancouver | English Bay

Casual seafood-focused favourites with bold, delicious flavours. Papi’s Seafood and Oyster Bar replaced Raincity Grill (and formerly Beach Bay Cafe) at Denman Street.

The 2200 sqft space is refreshing, bright and airy. A good match for its playful seafood fare.

Papis Seafood Oyster Bar Vancouver Nomss.com

To start our 5 Year Anniversary lunch date, we had some fresh oysters: Kusshi (Deep Bay, Vancouver Island), Lucky Lime (New London Bay, PEI), and Raspberry Point (New London Bay, PEI). I liked the meaty and clean flavours from the East Coast!

Papis Seafood Oyster Bar Vancouver Nomss.com

Octopus Popcorn 17: Smokey and tender grilled octopus with red pepper and smoked paprika popcorn.

Papis Seafood Oyster Bar Vancouver Nomss.com

Ahi Tuna Ceviche 18: Fresh albacore tuna, cubed and marinated in citrus, corn and pickled shallots makes for a refreshing appetizer that you simply can not get enough of! I wonder if Alessandro would have laughed at (or with me) if I had licked my plate!

Burrata Salad 18: Never would I not order Burrata if it was on the menu. Fresh Burrata with heirloom tomato and basil puree.

Off The Menu: Season’s finest Chantrelle mushroom, Brussel sprouts, heirloom tomatoes with Burrata. The warmth from the mushrooms softens the Burrata making it even more desirable! You have to try this if you are a Burrata lover!

Lobster Brioche 26: Big chunks of meaty lobster with coleslaw, mayo and a housemade light and slightly puffy egg and butter toast. The only thing that could have possibly made this piece better? Fingerling limes and tobiko sprinkled on top! Pops of citrus burst would have completed it!

Off The Menu: Lobster Spaghetti instead of Clam Spaghetti because we are EXTRA! Dressed in white wine and herbs.

Remember to ask Alessandro to suggest wine pairings! And say hi to Chef Jefferson Alvarez (he will be there until the end of September!)

TURF VANCOUVER KITSILANO VEGAN VEGETARIAN HEALTHY SMOOTHIES SPRING MENU Nomss.com food blog canada

TurF Vancouver is a fitness studio, restaurant & cafe and shop in the Kitsilano neighbourhood on West 4th. I love the healthy choices and wholesome food that makes you feel alive – no refined sugar, non-processed. Just a lot of organic ingredients, mostly plants and cared-for, happy animal proteins from sustainable local farmers and businesses. I love the variety of plant-based bowls, salads, toasts, smoothies and beverages. There is even a rotating wine list, taps from lowel breweries.

 

New to their Spring menu is a few delicious dishes that will fill you up without all the bloating!

The Green Thing Smoothie 9: Vegan and Gluten Free – a whole lot of parsley, kale, green apple, banana, almond milk, coconut water, hemp and sea salt! It is thick and not very watery. I love that it is packed full of healthy nutrients!

Granola Bowl 10: Vegan and Gluten Free – This was one of my favourite items on the menu surprisingly. I love the house-made granola served with seasonal compote, chia pudding, almond butter, coconut yogurt, toasted coconut and seeds. The sweetness paired with tart seasonal fruits is a great contrast and the chia pudding is delicious! I can eat this not just for mornings but whenever.

 

 

Charcoal Latte 5: black tea and spices for a great detox warm beverage.

 

I highly recommend TurF if you are ever in the mood for some healthy eats! Don’t forget to sign up for their workout classes like cardio boot camp, pilates, strength, boxing, yoga, etc! Some of my favourite instructors are there and a 2-week intro rate of $50 (for more info HERE). And if you sign up for a TurF membership you get unlimited classes plus 15% off the Bistro Cafe and shop!
