The discovery of a new dish does more for human happiness than the discovery of a new star.

The Vancouver Dine Out event is back again. This year the event will run from January 20th to February 2nd. It was a great success each year with most popular restaurants selling out. This event lets one enjoy a three-course dinner at 144 of Vancouver’s hottest restaurants for $15, $25 or $35 per person. Check out further details at www.tourismvancouver.com. Here is the link to a nice video on this event put together by Tourism Vancouver … you should check it out: Click Here for the video. Most of the restaurants booking is still open but if you are interested you better act on it fast as the best restaurants are expected to sellout pretty fast. We wanted so much to go to the Lumiere but it was sold out. Lumiere is the restaurant of Rob Feenie, one of the Iron Chef America! So, Suanne and I have booked a dinner at the Horizons on Burnaby Mountain for 5pm at the end of this month. We think the timing will be perfect because we can watch the sunset from the top of Burnaby Mountain. It’ll be one spectacular view of the mountains … I hope we can get a window table!
He he he … we have already sort of decided what we’ll order for the dinner. I am going to have the Gulf Island Mussels for appetizers, Grilled Tenderloin with blue cheese butter, red wine demi and Yukon gold mashed for the main course. For deserts, I think I will go with the Warm Apple Brioche Pudding. Suanne is opting for Roasted Tomato Soup with fennel & garlic for starters. For the main course, she thinks she will go for the Herb Roasted Game Hen with Fondates potato and apple sage jus. She will probably end up with Chocolate Mousse Cappucino with sugar tuile. This is making me hungry! Anyway, it’ll be fun to also go out with friends and so if you are interested, call me or Suanne and we can go together. It is $25 per person, and that does not include wine, taxes and gratuities. BTW, we are not bringing the boys along. We’ll try to blog the dinner.
