For the last week of Dine Out Vancouver, I chose this restaurant for us, because we had never been there, their regular menu is expensive for a try-out, and the Dine Out menu looked good, so I thought it would be a good opportunity to try them out with 3-course dinner for $38 at this event. Although I made a reservation before the event started, the dinner time was almost fully booked and I had to book for earlier time. However, Collin found out he had to work on that evening at the last minute, so we changed to 9:15pm.

Coast Restaurant is one of restaurants of Glowbal Collection group, such as Glowbal Grill or Italian Kitchen. Coast is located on Alberni street, where lots of restaurants and cafe are nearby. They serve seafood including oyster.

We both ordered the same appy. Collin loved it and asked me to take a picture of the scallop for some reason. :O Of course, I liked it, too.

His entree, Grilled Alberta Beef “Oscar Style”
(Blistered Peppers, Prawn Bearnaise)

He was upset with the pepper that was so hot that he couldn’t taste well after that. (The server didn’t warn anything, and also Collin didn’t read the menu well, as usual. 😛 I didn’t know how you say it in English until he complained, but I’m familiar with Shishito pepper, which I can barely eat, because I can’t take that kind heat well.)

My entree, Grilled B.C. Snapper, and Add-on Rosemary Scallops
(Vegetables a la Grecque, Citrus Beurre Blanc)

Surprisingly, snapper portion was huge! I expected the half size. Oh, no, I didn’t complain. 🙂

Dark Chocolate Turtle Cake
(Raspberry pop rocks Macaron, Salted Caramel Fudge, Pecan Praline)

There were no choices on dessert. I’m not a fan of Macaron, but this was fun to eat! Pop rocks candy was on it, which I used to buy when I was small. 🙂

I was happy with all my choices! We want to try their regular menu on a special occasion.

And, extra pictures for the restaurant interior.

Glowbal Collection group participated in Eat! Vancouver 2012. The group includes Glowbal Grill & Satay Bar, Sanafir, Coast, Italian Kitchen, Trattoria, Society, and Black + Blue.

There was a big piece of beef on the table that got Collin! I can’t remember what kind of meat it was and where you can eat. (I thought this was available at Black + Blue.)

I can’t even remember how many of dishes they provided…

I had some time off at work and took my friend from Japan to West Vancouver. After coming back to downtown, we had lunch. I asked her what she wanted to eat, and she said pasta. I was thinking for a while where the closest place we can eat tasty pasta, because I had to go back to work after we ate.

One restaurant came up after walking a while, which was Italian Kitchen. I ate there probably four years ago and didn’t impress with their omelet and pizza, but I hoped pasta was good for her sake.

We ordered from their lunch menu. I couldn’t decide what I ordered, so I asked our server. He recommended the meatball one, so I went for it.

The meatball was little spicy for me, but it was good. I liked the spaghetti.

I couldn’t finish my dish, maybe because the meatballs are huge like tennis balls, so I asked for a doggy bag. And, this was brought. I like the bag. 🙂
