Halya and I met for lunch on Monday, November 17… Initially I had thought to take her to Granville Island – but on an inspiration I decided to check out Cardero's in Coal Harbour. I hadn't been there for years…
We took a short walk beside the Westin Bayshore Hotel while we waited for them to set up for lunch. The fog had lifted off the water. We saw sea planes taking off, and a large catamaran yacht moving towards us. I pointed out some of the local land marks such as HMCS Discovery.
This was our shared plate: Ahi tuna, Yellow Fin tuna, Tiger prawns, oysters – with dipping sauces. The green stuff is crunchy vegetable stuff. It was perfect with the yam fries. Wonderful think crunch yam fries. Tuna sashimi that melts in your mouth. And a view of the harbour to rival anywhere in Vancouver.
