Having a relaxing Sunday meal at Forage Vancouver was a treat itself. Despite what you all may thing, I don't go out everyday or eat extravagant gourmet meals. Most days it consists of low carb salads, wonder soup diets and plenty of leftover food. Between work, wedding planning and trying to keep a regular workout routine; there is simply no time. So, as you can imagine, how nice it was just to relax on a late Sunday afternoon it was to enjoy a window seat, some sun, and a delicious breakfast.
Forage is located at The Listel Hotel in Vancouver Downtown. The name initially was awfully familiar as it was the same hotel I stayed in Shinjuku, Japan. I love the wooden interior, center island bar and high chairs. I love how there was tons of natural light pouring into the restaurant. There is even a large party room in the back. Service at Forage is top notch (except for the hostess that greeted us at the door).
Meat Board 16: Charcuterie, chicken liver parfait, pickled walnuts, and IPA mustard. Our waiter Dean was super nice to remind us that this was a meat board. I can see how someone can be surprised that may not necessary know charcuterie to be a selection of meat products. We especially love the old school chicken liver parfait with clarified butter topping. Chicken liver is set in the fridge to allow the flavors to develop. Tip: for $7 you can bring it home to enjoy. If the butter seal isn't disturbed it should last as long as two weeks.
Crab Meat and Halibut Egg Benedict 16: shredded crab meat and halibut is light and sweet. I loved the brightness of the hollandaise. I swear there is lemon or mustard in it. Served with crispy potatoes and house made ketchup. Eggs medium poached to my liking.
The portions at Forage was just right. We didn't feel overstuffed. The size of the meat board was surprising enough (not to mention that it packs like 2000 calories!). I blame the “Super Size” mentally we have all adapted. Sometimes, it is such a treat to slow down, enjoy each bite before rushing to cut the next piece. Please enjoy your meals!
