Dockside Restaurant is participating again in Dine Out Vancouver from January 20 to February 5, 2017. They are offering guests with their 3 course meal on Granville Island for West Coast Cuisine for $40. Reservations should be made in advance.
I came here for a preview of the menu prior to Dine Out Vancouver with a few other media people to see how their menu is like.
Dine Out 2017 Menu at Dockside
- Dockside Crab & Shrimp Cakes
- Duck Prosciutto Tart
- Winter Green Salad
- Linguini Vongole
- Roasted Zucchini
- Beef Wellington
- Panna Cotta
- Chocolate and Apricot Mousse
Winter Green Salad has Manchego polenta croutons, French beans and a herb vinaigrette. A good start of the meal as its light and refreshing. The polenta croutons add a bit of crunch and texture to the salad.
Dockside Crab & Shrimp Cakes has charred lemon aioli, and mango salsa on top. 3 pieces to each plate.
Duck Prosciutto Tart has housemade duck prosciutto, onion jam, arugula and balsamic reduction. The delicious fatty duck prosciutto pairs balances with the arugula. The tart gives it a crunchy texture.
Beef Wellington Truffle has mash potatoes, market vegetables and red wine jus. I felt that the meat was cooked more to a well doneness.
Linguini Vongole has Manila clams, white wine cream sauce, and reggiano cheese. The pasta was creamy and there was a good amount of clams. Since the clams were cooked separately, it didn’t integrate too well with the pasta.
Roasted Zucchini is the vegetarian option. It has eggplant puree, cucumber and fennel salad and topped with toasted pine nuts.
Chocolate and Apricot Mousse Layer Cake is lined with apricot puree and fresh berries.
Panna Cotta has lemon grass, lime leaf, passion fruit puree and mint. A refreshing end to the evening meal.
Overall, the menu is pretty balanced to cater to those with different tastebuds. The portions are a good size too.
