le crocodile- VANCOUVER
….and im BACK! i am super behind on posts but i no longer live in vancouver cry* i have moved back home to taipei city where i grew up for 18 years and im proud to say that im almost done with my first month of work! i miss being in vancity and being a student… and of course the NOMINICAL FOOD. it’s a weird feeling coming back to my blog. i never really had the courage to click back into my blog up until today. there was a fear, an anxious feeling of going back and reading all the memories and thoughts that once came to mind. i was flipping through all my ‘last few months in vancouver’ album on my macbook and i couldn’t help but reminisce at all the good times i had. the real moments shared with my friends and my hobby of exploring the wonderful food scene in vancouver. it’s been a while but i will do my best to fill in the blanks from where i’ve left off.
blogging all the way from taipei, taiwan, im turning over a new chapter in my life and i want to dedicate this post to le crocodile for inspiring me to blog again!
like i said, i lost quite a bit of memory from partying too hard over the summer hehe so this will be more picture-based than usual. i know some people complain about the lack of descriptions in certain food blogs but its my blog and i get to do whatever i want to do so get over it :P! please enjoy the pictures from my favorite restaurant in vancouver located on burrard street right by the sutton hotel. photo quality is kinda bleh.
complimentary onion tart- super delicate so be careful when you pick it up. creamy, filling, and melts in your mouth.
grilled asparagus served with arugula salad, truffle oil dressing and parmesan shavings ($13.50)
BC salmon three ways tartar, smoked and candied west coast style ($16)
dungeness crab cake
lobster bisque served with fresh cream and cognac ($10.50)- who doesn’t like a rich & creamy heartwarming lobster bisque mm..
snails baked in pastry shells, with garlic butter ($12.50)- butter overload.
heart of butter lettuce with house vinaigrette ($11.50) – love the simple and clean look of this dish.
beef fillet topped with foie gras? - i think this was one of the specials of the day. eek i cant remember.
fresh pappardelle pasta, served with braised veal cheeks, pinot noir reduction and truffle oil ($28)
also one of the specials of the day? my aunt ordered the fish.
prawn salad- now this was for sure one of the specials of the day. my delicious prawn salad.
a side of pomme frites- im not a big fan of fried foods (cus its fatty) so i didn’t try this.
i blame my progression of allergies to eggs & diary products on my obsession for souffle ($10.50) at a young age. yar it sucks but i chose getting rashes > souffle sacrifice. oops.
i wanna say that this was the sun burnt lemon tart with passion fruit sorbet ($10.50)
orange crepe w/ vanilla ice-cream ($10.50)
complimentary chocolate alligators- they definitely know how to make their customer leave happy!
i love le crocodile & it will always be on the top of my list when i visit again! best french restaurant in the city! it’s classy, sophisticated, traditional french and delicious.
