HOMER ST. CAFÉ AND BAR – Downtown

THE ROOM:
There’s just something about this restaurant… it seems to transport you. By time or location - I’m not quite sure which - it feels like you have stepped out of rainy Vancouver and in to a warm and welcoming Fat Pig respite.

THE SERVICE:
Simply put, our server was lovely; pleasant and well trained. A genuine fan of the menu, she made sure that we ordered exactly what would satisfy all of our piggy cravings.

THE FOOD:
The rotisserie chicken could not have been juicier and the fact that you could have their featured roast pork ribs as a side dish proved perfectly that there is no such thing as piggy portion control! As for sides and starters, I’m still drooling over the Maple Butter Pork Belly and the Crispy Quail with Roasted Carrots. And last but not even close to least, it came time for dessert. What piggy can say no to a plate of Peanut Butter cookies? Sea salted chocolate pudding also? Oink! Yes, please!

THE DRINKS:
We certainly imbibed just as well as we ate: Elder Flower cocktails to start, a few bottles of La Frenz ‘Amos Vineyard’ Pinot Noir for the table at dinner, and a bottle of sparkling Prosecco to pair with our desserts.

THE COST:
Sides/starters will range from $6 to $16 and the average main goes for $20. The half chicken (did I mention how tender it was?) was $26 – a great share item for sure. Wines were a little out of my comfort zone but that’s why piggies share. And desserts? They were all $6 each and definitely the perfect way to end this, overall, value priced meal.
