Cache Bistro and Lounge is located in Yaletown and serves French inspired dishes with an asian touch. Chef Alex Mok uses local ingredients and creates beautiful dishes with them.
They have 3 course dinners for $35, also they serve brunch on the weekends.
It’s a nice place for the summer as they have a patio outdoors.
Bread arrives and you get lobster oil, raspberry butter, truffle butter and satay peanut butter. I loved the different butter you can use. Satay peanut and the truffle butters are really good! I couldn’t stop eating it.
Chef’s Charcuterie samples features three cured meats from Oyama Sausage Co., mixed olives, onion jam, crostini, and house pickled vegetables. Its a nice item to order if you want some nibbles and a glass of wine. Great for after work.
Lambrusco di Sorbara is paired with the charcuterie.
Pan Seared Scallops (appetizer size) has a jumbo scallop, warm quinoa, orange vinaigrette and a baby zucchini. It was yummy! That quinoa is really goos with the scallop. The entree version has more scallops and quinoa.
Lang Bravo White Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc ’11 VQA BC is paired with the scallops.
Clos du Mont-Olivet La Sabonite is paired with the quail.
Chocolate mousse tree has the chocolate mousse base with a hidden mango sauce on the bottom, a pastry tree trunk, mint leaves, and a cotton candy bush. The dessert was creative and cute. It would definitely be fun for a kid to eat. They way you would eat this is taking the bush and truck off the mousse and eat that first. Then, saving the mousse for last.
Overall the food was quite decent. They have some pretty cool items on their menu that I would want to try. I heard their ribs were to die for. Perhaps another visit is required.
