Growing up in Vancouver, I knew the local diners, the ethnic restaurants and the special-occasion meals, often in hotel dining rooms. But that was long before all the world became foodies, and everywhere hosts interesting, contemporary and classy restaurants, that often celebrate local cuisine or produce. I was SO glad to be treated to a meal at Royal Dinette in Vancouver this Christmas; I didn’t expect to get to such a fancy meal.
While my generous friends who treated me are dear to me, and wouldn’t have judged me for taking photos of food, I did feel slightly shy, so while we had a complete tasting menu, along with matching drinks, I only snapped a few photos as memories. I thought the food was wonderful, delightful, slightly unusual and served in perfect portions matched with interesting grog.
Also a fun atmosphere and good service. All in all, a great food experience for me.
