The conversation with my friends for Dine Out Vancouver was continued, even after we decided to go to a restaurant for lunch. We wanted to go somewhere for dinner as well, but there were so many choices. Using all the communication tool (Facebook message, text, phone), we finally came to a decision. 😀

We decided to go to Yaletown L’Antipasto. They serve Italian food, located in Yaletown, as you can see their name. We all had never been there, so it was a good try-out with $28 Dine Out dinner.

We all ordered from their Dine Out menu.

Antipasti, Bresaola

Antipasti, Saute di Vongole
(Manilla Clams, sauted in white wine, extra virgin olive oil, garlic & chillies)

Both antipasti was good. Yet, I think my Vongole dish wasn’t so hot. Well, the taste was good, and the server brought some bread for us to have the broth with.

Primi, Pappardelle with Mixed Meat Ragu
(Beef Tenderloin, Italian Sausages, Chicken Breast & Boneless short ribs braised in a Tomato Sauce)

Primi, Risotto alla Pescatora
(Arborio rice, simmered with Tiger Prawns, Mussels, Clams & Calamari)

Risotto was strange. When my friend and I started eating, it was so good. Then after one third was eaten, more we continued to eat, saltier we tasted. At the end, we both needed to drink water and I was eager for my dessert.

Dolci, Lavender Creme Brulee

Oh, I liked the panna cotta. And, my friend really liked the creme brulee, too.

Here is a box that our bills were in.

I hadn’t seen one of my friends for two months or so, and she asked me if we can eat out for dinner before she got busier at her work. It was just before the ski season started, so I agreed and picked a date and a restaurant.

I chose The Flying Pig in Yaletown, which was long in my list. 🙂 They don’t take a reservation for dinner, so we just walked in. It was Saturday night, so we had to wait for 45 min, as anticipated.

As a start, there was a bit annoying incident happening to us. It was a cold night, so we waited inside. The host kept asking if there was anything that they can help, even after we left our name and phone number. He even allowed letting some people coming after us in and be seated at the window-side counter for waiting, which he didn’t offer us. Finally, we asked if we can wait here inside the door, and he said no… I just didn’t want to leave, because I read a review on some site saying that they never called back, but what can we do? No choice and we left and wandered around the area, and we decided if there were any other interesting restaurant we just went there. Well, as a note, they called us eventually before we found the other place.

We ordered from their dinner menu.

She didn’t expect the whipped cheese included goat cheese that she didn’t like.

My appy, T.F.P. Cured Meat Selection
(Artisan cured Meats and local Cheeses, Spicy Olives)

My friend’s entree, Wild Seafood Pappardelle
(Mussels, Salmon, Prawns, Spicy Rose)
