I found an interesting restaurant in the list of Dine Out Vancouver that students at culinary school serves. I checked the availability on online reservation, which showed no availability during the whole Dine Out period. I called them if any space available for walk-in, but they recommended to check online, as they would make spaces available if any cancellation happened. I kept checking, and luckily I was able to make a reservation. 🙂

Bistro 101 at Pacific Institute of Culinary Arts is located at the entrance of Granville Island. They open only on weekdays.

They served 3-course meal for $18 for dinner, appetizer, main, and dessert.

Collin’s appetizer, Market Seafood Appetizer of the Day: Scallops Salad
(Sever just said it was scallops without details, so it was kind mystery food until it came. 🙂 It came with roasted apple, avocado, and arugula, with raspberry dressing.)

I wanted to go to this restaurant since I had heard about it on some of the blogs. My friend, who I used to work with, and her husband moved to Canada, so I had to get together and chose this casual Italian restaurant, Campagnolo on main.

I ordered from their lunch menu.
