I wrote in the post a few days ago what happened on Collin’s birthday night that his dad couldn’t make it so that we had to find a restaurant and had dinner by ourselves. So, the birthday dinner with his dad was rescheduled in a few days.

The restaurant booked was Fable Kitchen. As we liked when we went for brunch, Collin suggested his dad. The restaurant is on 4th Avenue, close to Burrard street. It was early weekdays, but the restaurant was packed.

We ordered from their diner menu. We were a group of 5 people, so we shared some appetizers and each ordered an entree. As Collin and his dad know their manager, we got some complimentary dishes again.

As a bigger group, it is difficult to take enough time to take focused pictures. Besides, I forgot to take pictures of drinks…

Here are appetizers to share.

Bread with Green Onion Butter (Sorry, I can’t remember the exact name…)

Spaghetti with Meat Balls

Mushroom Flat Bread
(Olive oil, Onion jam, Arugula, Parmesan)

Note for me. I liked canned tuna, but the best was chickpea fritters. Spaghetti wasn’t so special to me, maybe because it was too small to share with 5 people and I didn’t have much to enjoy the taste.

Here are entrees.

Duck Breast
(Braised red cabbage, Parsnip, Duck confit croquette)

Potato Crusted Chicken
(Ratatouille)

Halibut & Chorizo
(Chowder, Mussels, Tomatoes, Fennel)

My choice was Halibut & Chorizo, and I liked it. Collin liked the chicken so much.

And, dessert. Basically, I liked to eat this, and Collin’s dad insisted that I should order! 😀 (He knows I’m a food monster.)

Lemon Pot de Creme
(Lemon granita, Gin, Foam)

The manager brought the other dessert, too. 🙂

Mascarpone Cheesecake
(Carrot cake, Yogurt anglaise)

You know what? I’m glad Collin’s dad insisted that I should order. I really liked the Lemon Pot de Creme! I usually don’t like sour stuff, but this one was well-balanced with sweet and sour.

We were six of us, so I will write in three separate posts, appetizer, main, and dessert. This is about main dish. For appetizer, click here. There were a lot of specials for main dish as well and I couldn’t remember all.
