Top of Vancouver Revolving Restaurant is famous for view in Vancouver BC. But before heading to the restaurant I have already heard from many not to keep my hopes up for the food. Located by Waterfront skytrain station with a revolving platform that allows you to see the whole Downtown Vancouver, the view was beautiful. Luckily we went on a day that wasn’t too cloudy with small rain; we were still able to see the spectacular view. With no hopes in mind, I ordered a few dishes that seems ‘safe’ to me.
Mixed seasonal greens with Tastes like any other seasonal green salad, but I could barely taste the dressing and the greens seems to be not so fresh. My heart sank a little knowing I can make a better salad at home. :(
Then another appetizer - Smoked Salmon with Crab Croquette. I think they gave us Costco Smoked Salmon that came in a pack. It tasted exactly like it? Short of looks like it also. The crab croquette tasted like a dry crab cake. After this appetizer I was prepared for the worst.
I couldn’t get photos of our mains because it was getting dark and I got busy taking photos of the view. :P It was so nice, which totally takes my mind off the not good food I was eating.
We ordered the Duck Trio and Halibut Fillet. Like I said previously I was prepared for the worst, so like expected they don’t taste so good. Both of us couldn’t finish our mains. I have to say I am not a picky eater, I eat all my food even though it doesn’t taste great. But these were just bad. :( I didn’t want to complain because it was a special occasion so I was trying to engage in the conversation.
The Strawberry Napoleon was interesting, crispy pastry with fresh strawberries and cream cheese. It wasn’t too too heavy but it is on the sweet side with a light hint of orange brandy and lemon zest made this dessert just balanced out. This pretty much is the only item I will complaint on during this whole visit.
It wasn’t bad. Just like any other tiramisu, nothing special to it. I would suggest that if you are going to Top of Vancouver maybe just do dessert and wine. They have a decent wine collection and not bad dessert with the beautiful view, will be a great way to end any romantic nights. :)
