Preston’s Restaurant in the Coast Coal Harbour in Vancouver kicked off its Canadian Inspired Comfort Food menu with a fun tasting on Wednesday evening.
A tasting tour across the country welcomed guest to give a hint of what’s in store for the menu. Greeting at the door by a Caesar with Molson Canadian for a uniquely Canadian cocktail. Maple popcorn and Ketchup Chips sat alongside games like Jenga and Uno to give the room a homey feel and add to the camaraderie of the evening. Starting in the Pacific, West Coast oysters and Nanaimo Bars were paired with Granville Island ales. Crossing the Rockies, to the Prairies for flat iron Bison accompanied by Perogies topped with creme fraiche. A stop at Le Belle Province proved popular for many as traditional Poutine (with vegetarian gravy) and smoked meat were on order. Wrapping up the cross-Canada adventure, seafood from the Maritimes was a must in any Canadian menu. Tasty Atlantic Lobster Rolls and rich seafood chowder topped off the tasting.
If the bites and excitement were any judge, patrons will indeed find Canadian Inspired Comfort at Preston’s on their next and return visits.
