Hungry? Whet your Appetite with VANEATS.ca and Whet Kitchen.Bar.Patio
Located on Granville Island, Whet is a West Coast experience like no other. Chef Peter Gray has created a menu that embraces the spirit of BC, and affiliations with local merchants ensures the menu stays fresh, sustainable, and of the highest quality.
The package includes:
Prawn, Shrimp, & Wild Mushrooms Salad
This was the winning dish for me. It took a lot for me not to lick the plate clean! The prawns and mushrooms are full of flavour and there’s a lot of texture in the salad from the taro root crisps. Fresh arugula tossed in a delicious lemon-hazelnut vinaigrette completes this fantastic dish. If you’re ever at Whet Kitchen Bar, You’ve GOT to try it.
Coconut Scallop Ceviche
Whet is famous for this dish. I checked into Foursquare when I arrived at the restaurant; and the first tip that comes up is “try the ceviche”! The juices are rich, lots of citrus and ginger flavours with a hint of jalapeño spice. The ceviche has lots of shrimp and big chunks of white fish. I loved the home made corn chips. This is a different take on ceviche, so don’t expect the same flavour as you would in a Mexican restaurant.
That’s just the appetizers! For your main dish, the VANEATS.ca package offers you a choice of the following:
Crispy Duck Leg
If I could only use one word to describe this dish, it’s “decadent”. A confit of Fraser Valley duck leg coated in a sweet chill ginger sauce, served with yam & plantain chips and garnished with grilled plums. The duck is rich, but not fatty or overwhelming. The plums compliment the meat perfectly. Loved, loved, loved the duck.
Red Honey-Curry Coho
A great West Coast dish, this is a filet of wild BC salmon with a saffron yogurt sauce, hot pickled lime puree and candied almonds. It is complimented with a market vegetable. I never thought to pair salmon with saffron, but oh my, does it ever work. Just delicious.
To compliment your meal, this VANEATS.ca package comes with 2 Sleeves of Angry Scotch Ale, a dark ale with a slight smoky character. Goes great with the duck!
Whet your Appetite is on sale now on the VANEATS.ca website until January 17th, 2013. Great for stocking stuffers and office Christmas presents! For only $30 you can purchase one for yourself as well!

DISCLAIMER: I was chosen by VANEATS.ca to preview this dining package. My opinions are my own, and I purchased the second entree because a) I was hungry b) there were two of us c) don’t you love pretty pictures?. I am a loyal VANEATS.ca customer and I buy their dining packages regularly. I wouldn’t try to sell you guys on a company that I don’t use myself. They’re great!
