The Vancouver Community College is back with their popular pop-up restaurant, The Chef's Table. Located at the downtown campus (250 West Pender St), The Chef's Table consists of a five course meal for only $30, or $45 with local wine pairings. The restaurant is open Tuesday to Friday evenings until June 30th, 2016.
The small space allows you to watch the students meticulously prepare your meals. The presentation is gorgeous and each dish is a work of art!
White sturgeon crudo with ashed cured scallop, egg yolk, trout roe and tarragon.
Black cod with sunflower seed, pearl onion and porcini foam. This was one of my favourite dishes of the night.
Chicken liver foie gras parfait - bone marrow, veal tongue, and root raisin. The bone marrow was inside the fried ball, which came out as a burst of liquid when you bite into it.
Lamb loin with onion and fingerling potato.
Chocolate mousse rocks - vanilla cream, chocolate soil and chocolate ice cream. Definitely the best tasting rocks I've ever had!
The menu changes every two week but make sure to book well in advance - there is only a 22-person seating per evening and many patrons are returning to try out the new menu. Reservations can be made at firstname.lastname@example.org.
