Posts Tagged ‘Puff pastry’

Back in September, it was a birthday month of two of my friends. So, I picked some restaurants and had my friends pick one. They chose Trafalgars Bistro.

It is located in Kitsilano. I have been there for Oceanwise celebration and wondered if their regular menu taste good, too. There is $30 3-course dinner as well, which you can choose one appy from soup, green salad, or caesar salad, one entree, and one dessert from Sweet Obsession where is their sister restaurant at the next door.

I ordered this dish. Although I generally don’t like couscous, this Israeli one is like pasta so that I could eat. It was surprising discovery. 🙂

I ordered this. It was puffy pastry, like hard version of cream puff.

As they have a sister restaurant, Sweet Obsession, there are too many to choose from. I wish they have pictures on menu so that we don’t have to ask for each dessert’s details. 😉
