Corbus Et Cullis

July 29, 2010


Just when you think a weekend of camping at Mussel Beach couldn’t get any better, we stopped for lunch at one of the oldest neighbourhood pubs in BC on the way to the ferry home…The Crow & Gate, est. 1972.

It’s literally like someone’s home. There’s a walk up bar where you order all your food and drinks, no table service! They serve scotch eggs, which I’ve never seen anywhere before. There is a beautifully manicured garden, which lends to a grass-floor patio. And my fave is the crow drinking a beer on the sign (above).

For lunch, I opted for the Beef Dip and a mandatory scotch egg on the side.

Dazed & Confused

July 16, 2010

Drove around for 15 minutes this morning with no destination…and no music on. I was a hungover zombie in need of somethin’ filling to eat. Rolled up to La Grotta and went veggie for the first time. It was just right for a 10am sandwich.

Ingredients: Swiss Cheese, Lettuce, Tomato, Roasted Eggplant and Red Peppers, Banana Peppers, Olive Oil & Balsamic Vinegar, Dijon Mustard and Basil Mayo, toasted on whole wheat foccacia.

Muy Bueno

A cracked taco shell required a new taco construction approach. Inevitably a sandwich technique was used and ended up being way better! Much more balanced distribution of ingredients.

Ingredients: Taco Veggie Ground Round, Cheddar Cheese, Homemade Guacamole, Mixed Greens on a perfectly toasted blue corn taco shell…cracked.

Grand Slam

Bottom of the ninth. Bases loaded. Home Run. Outta the park.

This sandwich was that good. And I don’t even watch baseball!

Ingredients: Prosciutto Salami, Mozzarella Cheese, Fresh Chopped Basil, Balsamic Vinegar & Olive Oil, Dijon Mustard, grilled on turkish bun.

Convenient Sam

I sacrificed flavour and quality for convenience with this BLAH sandwich from the lunch spot down the street. Bread failure.

Ingredients: Salami, Cheddar Cheese, Lettuce, Tomato, Mayo, Mustard, grilled on baguette.
