Fieldstone, a restaurant that showcases the chef/owners' stories by putting the blend of flavors and techniques from Mexico, Cambodia, Spain, and Canada on the plates. On the new year's eve, I went on a memorable 8-course culinary journey with chef Chanthy Yen!
Instagram for a while, you would probably notice that Ma'tine was my all time favorite brunch spot in 2016. After almost a year and a half, chef Jérémy Daniel-Six is back! Instead of a daytime restaurant like Ma'tine, the new baby Rosie focuses much more on becoming a neighbourhood dinner spot without forgetting brunch on Saturday!
The Acorn, an award-winning, vegetarian bar located at the heart of Vancouver's Main St, was one of them. It is a destination for diners seeking creative meals made from fresh, locally sourced ingredients. The dishes are beautifully presented, and cater to vegans and gluten free diners while ensuring that even the staunchest meat eaters leave fully satisfied too.
There are more and more restaurants opened in the St-Henri neighborhood. On the bustling streets of Notre-Dame, right across my favorite Middle Eastern restaurant Sumac, lies Rosetta – a charming new Italian & French bakery and patisserie. Paying homage to Rosetta Sciortino Cammalleri, who is the mother and grandmother of owners, Maria and Rocco Cammalleri. Everything offered at the store is homemade where, many of the dishes are recipes that have been passed on through generations. Serving a vast assortment of sweet and savoury delights, at Rosetta, the secret ingredient is.... “family”!
KazaMaza was the first Middle-eastern restaurant that I visited 4 years ago.
Pizzeria GEMA is one of them. As the restaurant is only few blocks away from the Jean Talon Market, the ingredients of their appetizers and pizzas use local products that are available at the market. There are two words to describe their food, fresh and home. Oh! If you are too full for pizza, their homemade ice cream is worth a detour too.
