Water St. Café in Vancouver

Thursday, September 22, 2016

I had the best trip of my life last month when I spent two weeks in beautiful British Columbia. Although I had many wonderful adventures, we're here today to talk about Water St. Café, located in Gastown and throwing distance from the famous steam clock.

I recommend dining al fresco, you get to take in a beautiful view of the city and a little bit of the port, but the people watching alone is where the entertainment is. A bit cold? No worries, they also have heat lamps to keep you warm.

The seafood in BC is fresh, local and so much better than what you're able to find in Ontario. I started my dining experience with their Smoked B.C Salmon, which came with red onions, capers and herbed cream cheese. The smoked salmon was stacked high, and the combination of the capers and cheese worked together wonderfully. The salmon had a unique flavour, it was sweet and clean.

I should also mention that bread and homemade butter were provided before the meal. I judge a restaurant pretty harshly by the type of butter they use, and so I was really happy to see that they were users of house made whipped.

Typically, I shit on people who get pasta at a restaurant, but how could I turn down the House Made Gnocci! Also, who can turn down truffle oil! These potato dumplings were tossed with fresh herbs, sautéed mushrooms, scallions, chèvre, parmesan, and of course truffle oil. It was rich in flavour and incredibly filling, I love Gnocci, and this was needed after a long day of being a tourist.

Definitely not a cheap meal, but if you're looking to have an experience with great food and even better service, come to Water St. Café.
