Posts Tagged ‘Fable Kitchen’

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…)

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.

I asked Collin to come with me to winter sports shops in Kitsilano one weekend in September. I couldn’t find something that I wanted, so we decided to go for brunch nearby. We walked around, and I remembered there was a restaurant that a finalist of Top Chef Canada second season opened.

Fable Kitchen is on 4th Avenue, close to Burrard street. Like their name means, you can feel all ingredients are delivered from farm to your table. The menu seems to change quite a bit, which is understandable if they want to serve what is the best of the season.

We ordered from their brunch menu. As Collin knows their manager, we got some complimentary side dish. It was very nice of him! 🙂

Both bacon and sausage were tasty. Bacon was so crispy, and homemade sausage was well-seasoned. And, both sauce was matched to each one. Sauce was more like jam, and I think the one for sausage was sun-dried tomato jam, but I can’t remember.

What I liked was their salad. These days, most of the restaurants serve just mix green salad that is packaged in the bag, which I can even make at home. Their salad was simple but included a lot of different kinds and taste was good. Don’t get me wrong. Of course, halibut cake was good as well as homemade hash. 🙂

I hadn’t been attracted to their brunch menu a few weeks back when I looked at their website, but I was wrong! I enjoyed their food.
