We had a romantic evening planned, including dinner at The Market at Shangri La in Vancouver. It was our anniversary and we wanted to do something special. Well, we were not disappointed.
We chose the sampler, which was a meal in several courses with "smaller portions", but designed to give one a broad sampling of the fare. I would say the portion sizes were perfect, the presentation was superlative, and the taste and selection were out of this world. My wife and I both agreed that this was without doubt our BEST ever restaurant experience. We started with black truffle apple fritters, went on to tuna tartar, scallops, beef tenderloin that melted in your mouth, and a rhubarb cheese cake that was absolutely delicious. The sauces, foundations and taste combinations on each plate were just extraordinary. The price? Well yes, a meal like this is not a low budget affair, but it was worth every penny and I would do it again an a heart beat.
If you have a chance when visiting Vancouver Canada, you really SHOULD take the opportunity to enjoy the Market at Shangri La on West Georgia Street. You'll be glad you did.
