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.
