Posts Tagged ‘Duckling’

One weekday in April, my friend sent me a text, asking if we can go out for dinner. I was busy with work and had lunch around 3, but I replied I can. Well, she was also busy and would leave her work after 7, so it was perfect. When she was off the work, we searched for where we would go. As she said she wanted to eat good tasty food, I picked this interesting place, although it would cost a little more than casual dinner.

My choice was Kitsilano Daily Kitchen. They are just around the corner of Burrard Bridge and serve French west coast cuisine, changing the menu daily. I say it would be difficult to plan ahead if you are a picky eater. Well, that was the reason I hadn’t been there. :p

We ordered from the daily menu. We shared appy and each ordered an entree.

Complimentary Potato Bread, Saint Agur Blue Cheese, Olives

This potato bread was slightly sweet, but as blue cheese was salty, it was a great combination. And, I have to note that this blue cheese was amazingly tasty! We asked the name of cheese, because we wanted to get some from store.

Windset Farms Heirloom Gem Tomatoes
(Island Buffalo Mozzarella, Basil, Espelette Vinaigrette)

Both appy tasted good. For the juice in the mussels and clams, we wanted to have bread to soak. 🙂

Her choice, Rare-seared Breast of Mt. Lehman Duckling
(Northern White Bean Cassoulet, Grapefruit Gastrique)

My choice, Brown Butter Broiled Arctic Char
(Vanilla Scented Wild Rice, Serrano Aioli, Charred Corn Salsa)

Seared duckling breast was so tender and tasted great. My Arctic char was huge and was cooked perfectly. The salsa was a kick with some spiciness to eat with char.

After dinner, the server came to see if we wanted to have dessert. He explained verbally, so I don’t have any details, but they had chocolate ganache with goat cheese and lemon tart. We were full yet ordered one.

The lemon tart was quite sour to me, but I kept eating after a while. That’s a chef’s magic!

Although we can’t come back for the same dish, I would like to try another time again.
