Tonight we ate at my fave of faves. When MeeT first opened (on Main Street), I took a lot of joy in introducing this restaurant to all my friends and family. Now, three locations and much success later, it's needless to say there aren't any humans in VanCity who haven't heard of or have been to @meetgastown, @meetinyaletown or @meetonmain. While they no longer need me or anyone else to word of mouth market for them, they still have a very secure place in my heart. The food never disappoints, the staff are friendly, and the vibe is chill and inviting. Tonight, we enjoyed...
Oyster Mushroom Kalamari: meaty oyster mushrooms wrapped in a tender and golden beer batter, balanced by this cool dill tzatziki and a sour zing of pickled onion. Paul doesn't love mushrooms nor vegan food and he loved this dish so... if that's not a good review I don't know what is?!
!HOT! Chiggin' Caesar Salad:
I know what you're thinking. I went to a restaurant which specializes in vegan eats and I got a salad? But like, you haven't tried THIS salad! The chiggin' is tender and marinated in this delish tangy hot sauce. Fresh organic kale & romaine all dressed in a hemp-based caesar dressing, making each bite creamy and so so so flavourful. All topped off with rawmesan, coconut bacon & crunchy croutons makes this one of my fave salads of all time!
Mac N' Cheez Bowl:
This is the dish Paul got and he *drum roll please* thought it was DELICIOUS! This is massive because PB doesn't usually like my "hippy" food, and mac n' cheese is his favourite dish. The macaroni noodles covered in cashew cheez and sprinkled with smoked salt had him going back for bite after bite, until his bowl was cleaned out!
A flakey cinnamon covered & fried croissant filled with Bavarian creme. Need I say more? 😍
Cookies & Cream:
Ermagawd this was gooood. Chocolate mousse layered with crushed oreos, coco whip and a little fresh mint to balance all those decedant flavours. The crunchy oreos offering a perfect texture to the creamy, chocolatey mousse... *Homer Simpson drool face*
All washed down by a couple beers and we left a little too full but not mad at all about it. #meetingastown
