Brief Description: One of the gems in the Vancouver restaurant crown. West is where local West Coast ingredients meet fine dining. Prices are high but for the service and the quality, it is not unjustified.
It’s a long weekend here in Canada, which means that I have been making the most of having an extra day off work by going out for meals with B, and catching up with friends for drinks. The inevitable result of drinks with friends is usually a late night, followed by a late start and a big feast to help ward off the effects of consuming too much booze the night before.
As you already know, B and I have made West our go-to Sunday brunch spot and we rarely miss a Sunday brunch there. This Sunday I was a little late out of bed (hey, no judgement, it’s a long weekend!) and so we weren’t really feeling like breakfast but more so like lunch. And that, my friends, is the beauty of brunch. Lunch we could have. We started with the unbelievably decadent West fries with truffle aioli. The aioli is heaven. Pure heaven.
Tower of West Fries – $9.50
Albacore Tuna Club with bacon - $17.50
Slow cooked Short Rib Orecchiette – $16.50
Butternut Squash Agnolotti with Black Truffle and Spaghetti Squash – $19
I really am starting to sound like a broken record with my love for West but you really can’t go wrong with anything at West. Whether it is brunch, or lunch, or one of their well-executed dinners, West has got it going on.
