Kitsilano Daily Kitchen Menu

Local celebrity chef Brian Fowke, previous chef at Rare Restaurant, delivers gastronomically stunning dishes at his new restaurant Kitsilano Daily Kitchen. He takes the revolution of “fresh and local produce” to the next level, visiting farms throughout BC and individually purchasing ingredients that will be cooked up in the next few days.

The menu is different every day, depending on what his fresh purchases of the day are, the menu gets posed on the website at around 4PM everyday.

Now the Food..

Starting off with the welcome dish aka amuse-bouche , fanny bay oysters in a light wine broth top with beans, pine nuts and cilantro. It was a nice starter, very lightly salted and with a hint of sweetness, that’s what you get when they are fresh!

Our Appetizer, which was divided into two plates, so portion size in the picture is halved. Sweetbread Veal  Spaghetti – $12, Sweetbread, not bread, the pancreas or thymus of in this case a calf, cooked in roma tomatoes sauce  and basil. The sweetbread was crispy on the outside and very creamy inside.

We ordered to share the Tri daily- $45, the best value and perfect way to explore the menu, with 3 entrees.

We happily dug into the Dry Aged Steak & Spot Prawns, over a bed of beets and potatoes, topped with rosemary butter sauce. The earthiness of the beet mixed nicely with the potatoes combined with a hint of tarragon.

The Mixed Seafood Grill, Prawns, sockeye, sable fish, king crab in lemon butter, although very satisfying but, not quite up to par as the other dishes. The coleslaw like salad, fennel with a hint of orange, was refreshing.

The Star Dishes…

Our runner up the Tenderloin of Pemberton, freshly purchased in a farm you guessed it, in Pemberton over truffle mash and duck gravy. Lordy, the tenderloin was perfection, I kept on thinking, so this is what fresh meat tastes like?!? With TRUFFLE and Duck Gravy , I thought I was in heaven but alas, this Is only the prequel.

This gastronomically brilliant, rustic Pork & Beans dish stole the show. Pork Belly in a maple-tomato sauce with white Canadian beans gave me a delicious high. I am not only persuaded but, in love.
