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.

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.

I got invited by the restaurant for the Customer Appreciation Day. This was probably an introduction that they would start their oyster bar. I talked to the chef at the end and he asked me what I thought about food, and I gave him some feedback, which was nice that he cares for customers.

All plates didn’t have names, so I just tried to describe as much as I can.

I had no idea what I wanted to eat, so I replied on what Collin wanted. He bought some fresh oysters and shucked them, and made mignonette, and he also made pizza toast rather than pizza, because I like pizza toast.

He got Miyagi oysters and organic pepperoni from Whole Foods in Vancouver. I asked him what they were when I saw pepperoni in the wrapping, and I was kind of shocked by how disgusting the color was, as it was first time for me to see uncooked ones.
