The Cannery Seafood House is really one of my favorite restaurants in the city. As you know, they made headlines a little while back because they will be moving from their current (hard to access) site at the Port of Vancouver in 2010. I really hope they will stay in town and end up somewhere … deserving.
I’ve been backlogged for posts in May (busy busy times), but I really need to make this one before May is over. I took my Mom here for a belated Mother’s Day lunch 2 weeks ago, since she ended up sick on the actual day when I booked for the Cannery’s annual Mom’s Day brunch. It was the perfect day: blue skies, warm, just beautiful. Even sexy Dodge convertibles came out:
I don’t know where the Cannery Queen can bask outside like this elsewhere in the city after they move:
And little things like their own herb garden at the back- I just hope they find a nice, new, happy home after 2010:
And the view of the North Shore from inside…:
Mom wondered whether they could move the entire lodge when they relocate. Would be a shame to have to tear down this cozy little house:
Enough about views, because it’s making me sad that they will have to move. Let’s get to the food! Oooh, the famous lobster oil (and bread that just SOAKS it up like heaven!). This is truly great oil – so fragrant, with this sweet sea aroma…. I have never really had other oil quite like it:
Hmmm, bread … thick slices of bread…. thick slices of BREAD AND LOBSTER OIL!
Menu of the day:
Mom ordered the seafood salad, which has A LOT of seafood. More seafood than salad, speaks for itself:
I had the snapper, simply poached. It was really fresh, and sweet:
Of course, we didn’t leave empty handed. 20 bucks goes to a bottle of lobster oil (maybe I should have ordered a box?):
