Nothing but praise for our Monday night dinner at the Twisted Fork Bistro. It’s awesome eating with Mike’s friends because they always order tons of delicious food, and I get to steal bites from each plate. It never ceases to amaze me how much these guys can eat. To start, in the above picture, Darren ordered scallops and bacon. I had duck confit (above middle) and Felix had black sesame tuna. They also brought two baskets of sourdough bread to the table with some yummy butter. Those pictures aren’t the best, but they looked really good, I promise. As a side on the duck confit, there was house canned fruit ketchup which was delicious – at the back of the restaurant they have an entire wall of house canned items. I would love to come back for brunch sometime to try their jam.
For the main course, Felix had the braised lamb shank (left) and I had mussels and frites (right). The sauce for the mussels was very creamy and tasted wonderful with the fries. The lamb fell right off the bone and melted in the mouth.
Darren had the free range BC chicken breast (left) while Mike enjoyed the Alberta beef tenderloin, served with some mashed potatoes that I was addicted to, asparagus and yam chips. I was skeptical of the yam chips at first, but one bite won me over.
By this point, we were absolutely stuffed to the point of discomfort, but Felix decided to go ahead and order the creme brulee which we all shared. You know it’s yummy when something’s good even when you’re full. The service at this restaurant is impeccable. There was no wait at all when we arrived. Before we had ordered, we were asked very politely to move into a booth so that a larger group could take our table. We were more than happy to move, and we were thanked by at least four different workers at the restaurant. Not only that, but they comp’d the creme brulee and brought us a surprise at the end of the meal in the form of chocolate mousse topped with raspberry sorbet. I haven’t been this full in a long time, but our visit to the Twisted Fork Bistro was the perfect end to the long weekend.
