The Peartree is owned by Scott and Stephanie Jaeger since 1997. They bring together world class cuisine with a downtown feel in the suburbs of Burnaby. The menu changes seasonally to incorporate the freshest ingredients. They have won several awards and have been recognized for their amazing food.
I bought a Groupon a while ago for The Peartree, where you would get 2 five-course signature menu dinner for $75. Seeing that it was a great deal, I had to get it. I brought along MedicalGiraffe since she really wanted to try this place.
The dining area isn’t too large, but most people make reservations since it is a nicer type of restaurant.
I got a cocktail, but I don’t remember what it was called. It wasn’t too alcoholic and had a nice fruity taste to it.
Brioche bread is served before your meal. It was very delicious, probably has lots of butter, but I could eat this all day.
Warm Potato and Leek Foam was very delicious. Good consistency and very yummy. It was a surprise to find little cubes of potato on the bottom.
Orange Caramelized Scallops With double smoked Bacon Risotto was very creamy and done perfectly. For MedicalGiraffe, she felt it was a tad salty. For myself, I didn’t notice it too much.
Fresh ‘Miracle Springs’ Rainbow Trout With Butternut Squash was well put together! The fish was tender and the butternut squash puree was a good accompaniment. This was my favorite dish!
24 hour Brasied Natural fed BC Short Ribs with Mushroom Ravioli was delicious as well. The best part of the dish was the mushroom ravioli! I could eat it all day! The short ribs was good, but it was a tad salty.
Fresh Pea Shoots comes with the meal too. It was lightly salted, so it was a good addition.
Valrhona Chocolate Ganache With Salted Caramel and Orange/Chocolate Sorbet was SO GOOD! It was MedicalGiraffes favorite item.
Hazelnut Macarons come when the bill arrives. They are smaller than the normal macarons you would see, but they taste awesome.
Overall, the meal was fantastic! You could probably tell by me over using the words “nice”, “perfect”, and “good”. I thought it was worth every penny. If you pay regular price for the set meal for 2, it’ll cost you $150 plus drinks, tax and gratuity. You really need a good excuse like a date or some special occasion to spend that much on a meal. Nonetheless, it is really great food.
