Dining in Vancouver

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

Any good restaurants in Chilliwack? I have to head out there eventually and give my cousin a visit before she starts saying how her family never visits her...yada...

So she's not a very good cook, so would love some suggestions for places to eat out there. Thanks.

Doing that tonight Doc.

Hope their German Sheppard is as good as Vina....

Kidding, I love alot of different Asian food but I don't dig on Chinese. There's just so much of it out there - it all seems thrown together in a big rush. I figure spend a few more dollars per dish and get Thai, Malaysian, Sushi, Korean or Vietnamese.

No! I went a full year without getting Chinese takeout and when I finally did it was disgustingly repugnant!

Shiny red sweet & sour boneless pork fat, stringy chow mien and crappy Chop suey.....nope!

Malaysian is my favorite by far followed by thai...

Chow mien vs. Pad thai????

duh

^ Not very imaginative and a hell of a lot of cheese through the menu.

Recently a bottle of 2000 Amarone fell into my hands and while it would have been best with a braised beef of a game meat, I was craving rib eye. So for Mrs Topper and I, I made each coarse to pair with the Amarone.

Duck breast, radicchio, butter lettuce salad, almonds, gorgonzola, dijon vinaigrette

Pan seared rib eye, balsamico, ratatouille stuffed crimini, romano frico

Cherry, nectarine, peppered cognac tart, ganache, whipped cream

OK, so I looked at their website. That's the regular hotel tapas menu so the menu makes more sense. I was thinking it was a special occasion menu. I couldn't find their wine list, but I would suggest a an unoaked crisp white, something like a Loire Valley/Oregon/New Zealand sav blanc.

Some good friends helped us immensely with our move so I'm planning a dinner for them.

Scallop carpaccio

Caprese Salad

Watermelon mint granita

Tuna Tataki with wasabi rice, baby zucchini

Buttermilk panacotta with lemon gelee

Right, this this the same place that has everyone dressed in robes trying their endless tapas for $45....If you remember last time I became impatient because we were sitting in bath robes during the whole course of the meal.

I can sit through a 3 hour dinner but not while wearing a fucking robe - if ya smell what I'm cooking.

As I noted, too many cheese courses.

How could I remember anything anyone on The List said?

I took everyone off The List when I got back from Belize after Xmas. All things considered, I should have done so sooner.

I would suggest you should have put a certain fatty on your list!

Some quirk of the board software, you could not block stupid pictures of cats.
