Vancouver Dine Out 2015: The Vancouver Fish Company Restaurant Review

Vancouver Dine out 2015: The Vancouver Fish Company Restaurant Review
The 2015 Vancouver Dine Out is now in full swing and the boyfriend and I hit up our first spot at The Vancouver Fish Company Restaurant and Bar on Granville Island for lunch. The special Dine Out Menu for lunch is $28, check out what we nommed........

Appetizers:
VFC Clam Chowder (regularly $11.99):
This is a rich and flavor Boston-styled chowder made with fresh clams, thyme cream, bacon chunks, and get this: bacon-wrapped bacon! Definitely my favorite part of the meal, this is one creamy chowder, and that bacon-wrapped bacon was a bite of heaven!

Dungeness Crab Rangoon (regularly $14.99):
This is an interesting dish my boyfriend chose. Made with fresh crab, baby shrimp, shallots, and cream cheese, these crispy fried dumpling-like bites are dipped in a cool pool of spicy red pepper bisque quite reminiscent of a spicy sriracha dipping sauce.

Entrees:
Rock Fish & Chips (regularly $21.99):
An interesting version of the classic fish and chips, this dish comes with beer battered rock fish filet. The rock fish is much stiffer compared to the classic cod and the batter truthfully is a bit soggy and thick. The dish comes with nice crispy fries and a small side of apple fennel slaw, which tastes like pickled slaw. Overall, not the best fish and chips I've ever tried but it's not the worst.

Pan-Seared Bowen Island Sockeye (regularly $24.99):
This features a nice hunk of tender wild sockeye salmon topped with pickled carrots and watercress. The salmon is decent but nothing special compared to the yummy bed of tomato risotto!

Desserts:
Maple Creme Brulee (regularly for $7.99):
This is such a yummy creamy creme brulee with a cute rosemary shortbread. The shortbread is absolutely divine and although I didn't really pick up on the maple flavor, the creme brulee was a nice finish to the meal as well!

Flourless Chocolate Cake (regularly for $8.99):
This is an interesting dense, brownie-like chocolate cake made with no flour. I am not sure I love the texture but mixed with the icy cold vanilla ice cream, the two made a nice pairing.

Overall, this is a great dining experience. The restaurant is spacious and very open with the crazy high ceilings. The service was friendly and speedy so it's definitely a place I would return for dinner sometimes.
