Yaletown’s first impressions…I think of it as a social scene where beautiful people come together and play (I hope Events and Adventure’s didn’t trademark that)! The beefy guys bulk up with steaks while their delicate girlfriends pick at their salads. Its cute but not for a country gal like myself. I was reluctant at first but hey, I’m a risk taker.
The restaurant opened up in 2011 and continues to win awards which keeps people waiting at the door (they don’t accept reservations). They tied 3rd place for 2012’s “Best New Casual Restaurant” from the Georgia Straight. I was curious to see what all the hype was about so I was on my way to indulge at the Flying Pig. Check out what went in ma bellay!
To start I had the Artisan Meat + Cheese Board that featured cured meats, local cheese, and spicy olives.
For my main dish I had the Pan seared Halibut Cheeks with Yukon Gold potato gnocchi.
For the finale I ordered a Maple Sugar Pie with yet another glass of Cab-Merlot and thus I am not RespOsole for whateveer I sayu or do happems aftyerwards.
The Flying Pig is a cozy restaurant with country flare. You are comfortably surrounded by warm colors of oak and red brick walls. The food styling lacks originality but the quality of ingredients certainly is emphasized here. I am happy to recommend this place to anyone looking to dine with friends.
Thoughts of where I should eat next? Comments? Random words?
I’d love to hear from you!
