My photography course is turning out to be a wonderful excuse for a journey around some of Vancouver’s wonderful restaurants. After every class, my friend, Patty, and I hit a new restaurant for lunch. Today’s choice was a case of delightful happenstance. It was pouring rain and we struck out with our first and second choice restaurants, and just as we were looking for a spot to make a U-turn, there it was…Trafalgars Bistro. It’s tucked away in a quiet neighbourhood on 16th Avenue and I’m in love.
I ordered the Moules & Frites, and Patty ordered the Eggs Benedict on potato latkes with spinach and bacon. Halfway through the meal, we switched plates, so each of us had half of each dish. My family is wondering why I don’t feel like cooking dinner on Mondays!!!
My favourite dish was the Mussels & Fries, but I couldn’t get a decent picture, sorry. The mussels were drenched in a decadent creamy white wine broth filled with garlic and shallots. We soaked it up with french bread–out of this world. The fries were the best I’ve ever tasted. My only complaint was that the eggs were over-poached, but it was still a really tasty dish. The potato latkes were delicious.
