Dine Out Vancouver 2015: Harold’s Bistro & Bar on Westminster Hwy, Richmond


Polly, CC, JK and I met up for a Dine Out Vancouver event. I picked Harold’s Bistro & Bar for the convenience of all as we all live in Richmond. Free parking is available for diners at Harold’s Bistro & Bar at the outdoor and indoor parking. You have to inform the hostess of your license plate number.

The Dine Out Dinner Menu is $28. Complementary bread with butter. I like the one with cranberry.

There were 3 options for the appetizers, entrees and desserts. Since there were 4 of us, we ordered one of each and picked a double for items we like most for sharing.

We had two servings of the Mussels with White Wine/Shallots/Garlic/Cream and Garlic Bread. Unfortunately, the mussels were very small and skinny.

The second appetizer is Tomato Tart. It is puff pastry topped with mascarpone cheese, oven dried tomato, balsamic glaze and served with arugula and frisee. The only problem is it is really small to share among the 4 of us.

The third appetizer is Duck Spring Roll made with handmade Peking duck and served with spicy sauce and Asian slaw.

For the entree, the star was the 6-oz Moroccan rub/grilled Lamb Sirloin served with eggplant/Israeli couscous pilaf and whiskey jus Lie. The lamb was tender and it’s a good serving. We were glad that we ordered two servings of this.

The second entree is a 6-oz cooked medium rare flat iron steak served with mashed potatoes, brocollini, glazed carrots and red wine sauce. The steak was surprising tender too.

The last entree was Atlantic Cod & Tiger Prawn cooked in tom yum broth and served with steamed rice and Asian vegetables. This is the least favourite of all three.

For dessert, we had two servings of New York Cheesecake with fresh raspberry coulis and seasonal berries. Polly and I will never get tired of cheesecake.

The second dessert is Creme Caramel served with Pistachio biscotti and fresh berries. Our problem with sharing is breaking up the biscotti which crumbled to pieces.

The last dessert is Belgium Milk Chocolate Bar with hazelnut praline.

The food was mostly good except the skinny mussels. Most importantly is the company with good friends.
