South Granville






We lived in this area in the mid-70s when I was teaching at nearby Vancouver Community College. The area is still full of art galleries, furniture and clothing shops. I used to take pics of Fumiyo reflected in some of the same shop windows long ago and the windows are still alluring.
Lunch was an astonishing crab salad at West  DUNGENESS CRAB SALAD HERB INFUSED CUCUMBERS, MELON, LIME VINAIGRETTE 16.5 /
When I saw the lime ingredient, I knew the dish would go perfectly with the  KAFFIR FLING
BANFF ICE VODKA, KAFFIR LIME LEAF, GINGER, FRESH LIME
ORGEAT (ALMOND SYRUP) + EGG WHITE 13  I had a sip of Steph's when she ordered it the last time I was at West. The limes did indeed mesh together but the egg white seemed too sweet , clashing a bit with the crab. I wanted a passion fruit cocktail which was on the menu then but no longer, though the bartender offered to make me a drink using some passion fruit purree from the desert station. Instead I went with the
WEST 75  : SPARKLING WINE, CALVADOS, BOMBAY SAPPHIRE  RICARD PASTIS, LEMON + SUGAR 15 which was quite good. I've always had good luck drinks named 75 and calvados in general. My luck continues.
