When you see the words "tasting menu" and "canapes" on an invitation, the last thing you'd expect is a twelve-course sit-down dinner that leaves guests full to bursting. But that was exactly what happened last Wednesday when media and bloggers were invited to Establishment Lounge (3162 West Broadway) in Kitsilano. The global fusion tapas menu by executive chef Victor Bongo featured unexpected and delectable twists on familiar dishes. From the bison sliders to the lamb to the chilled raspberry basil soup served for dessert, everything was so well executed that diners were hard-pressed to pick a favourite dish when Chef Bongo himself came out to greet them. Here's a look back at some of the culinary highlights that have me hoping to return again soon.
If this post has your mouth watering, you should definitely stop by Establishment Lounge soon.
