Summer has finally hit Vancouver and we took full advantage of the spectacular weather. We met up with Tree, made our way to Granville Island and headed for lunch at Edible Canada Bistro.
Located right outside of the Market, Edible was busy with patrons who had the same idea we did. We got a great table on the patio, partly sheltered by the trees with a little sunlight still peeking through.
Each of the sandwiches we ordered were fantastic with different delicious characteristics:
Sloping Hills Roast Pork Sandwich - the juicy roasted pork with arugula and pear-fennel compote balanced so nicely with the crispy bacon and ciabatta.
Sockeye Salmon Sandwich – a large, perfectly cooked salmon with butter lettuce, tomatoes and smoked Serrano aioli was held together with a fresh portugese bun.
Cornmeal Crusted Fanny Bay Oyster Sandwich – they didn’t scrimp on the oysters. The sandwich was thoroughly filled with the juicy oysters. The brioche bun was the perfect container with it’s fresh soft texture. The celery-fennel seed coleslaw added just enough crunchiness to the sandwich.
Duck Fat Frites – pay the extra $5 for these crunchy fries – the fresh ketchup and aioli will have you wanting more fries!
We were so impressed with our experience at Edible. Each dish was fresh and well-made and the service was so prompt and friendly. We’re already planning another visit to try the desserts…the strawberry shortcake and strawberry cheesecakes were calling our name!
Oh…and they have a take out bacon bar…need I say more??
