Dine Out Vancouver is an annual foodie event in Metro Vancouver with dozens of restaurants including many fine dining establishments participating with a special menu. Here are two restaurants we visited this year.

Last year we didn't end up visiting any restaurants during Dine Out Vancouver, but this year we have made reservations for few nice places. Coast is a nice seafood restaurant that is part of the Glowball group and they had a very nice $40 three-course menu. Especially the Surf & Turf was excellent and mouth-wateringly tasty.





Prawn Duo - whole prawn motogaki & crispy prawn spring roll
yuzu ponzu sauce


Miso-Salmon Chowder - clams, ginger, dashi, scallions, tof


Surf & Turf - bacon wrapped beef tenderloin, atlantic lobster tail
squash & quinoa risotto, béarnaise


Tahitian Vanilla Bean Crème Brûlée - calamansi caramel, tamarind tuile


Our second and final Dine Out Vancouver visit this year was to the beautiful and upscale Notch 8 restaurant inside the historical Hotel Vancouver. We did enjoy the dinner, although it wasn't the best ever Dine Out menu we have had. The setting inside the landmark building lobby is still very nice.





Savory Macaron with Caviar, Smoked Salmon, Scallop Mousse, Roe, Crème fraîche, Flowers, Micro Dill
