Food: Dineout 2015

January wasn’t exactly the fitness-loving month for me because of Vancouver’s Dineout 2015. Dineout is a dining festival with over 250 participating restaurants in Vancouver. You can choose from a selection of $18, $28, or $38 menus, all of them featuring a 3-course meal. It’s a good excuse to try some of the fanciest restaurants in Vancouver or just a good reason to meet up with your friends and catch up. This year, I tried dine-out at 4 restaurants.

Miku Restaurant (01.16.)

Appetizer: ZEN- a selection of Aburi specialty items served in our traditional Japanese hinoki wood box
Main: Miku Signature Sushi
Dessert: Manjari Chocolate-Orange Cream

Comments: Delicious, large variety of different tasting sushi… not filling. Make sure you have plans to eat before or after if you don’t want to wake up hungry in the middle of the night.

Al Porto Ristorante (01.17.)

Appetizer: Salmone
Main: Cioppino
Dessert: Tiramisu

Comments: Awesome tiramisu. Very filling and all 3 entrees are delicious.

Boathouse (01. 20.)

Appetizer: West Coast Seafood Chowder
Main: Fire-grilled Sirloin
Dessert: Mocha Ice Cream Pie

Comments: Too big of a steak for me, but it was yummy. The mocha pie is better than the creme brulee.

Forage (01.21.)

Appetizer: Smoked Sablefish and Chanterelle Mushroom Chowder
Main: Gelderman Farm Pork Belly and Crackling
Dessert: Chocolate Custard, Double Fried French Toast, Spruce Tip Cream

Comments: One of the best chowders I’ve had. Dessert was a little bland.

What places did you try this year?
