Lunch @ Sandbar Seafood Restaurant, Granville Island

One of our stops on Big Bus was Granville Island, another must-visit destination in Vancouver. We were there for a short while in the afternoon; so we went hunting for food as we were super hungry after spending almost 4 hours at Stanley Park and Vancouver Aquarium. This restaurant even though a little hidden, stood out as it has a queer entrance ( and we were looking for somewhere with air-conditioned. :O). Entrance on ground floor, up the stairs to the main floor where the lounge, dining and bar is. 

They have a boat right outside the window from our seats !

Nice bar and restaurant especially to cool off in the afternoon! 
Since it was a late lunch and were especially hungry, we ordered something heavier. We had the Sandbar Noodle Bowl ($15) which came with super fresh prawns, squid, scallops, chicken, mixed vege and chow mein noodles. It was really good and tasty ( surprisingly had the 'wok hei' eventhough its more of a Canadian instead of a Chinese restaurant). Portion was small though but for us, it was good for sharing since we wanted to try a little bit of everything.

We wanted some dungenese crab dishes but apparently they ran out of crab ( too bad :(). So, we had the most basic thing, fries. They were pretty special though; truffle oil, Parmesan and Parsley with fries ($6). It was really good and addictive. Felt unhealthy with all the oil and fats but who cares ?!!...

They had some tempting looking dessert based on their menu, so we ordered the Belgian chocolate pudding ($8.50) for sharing. The Belgian chocolate pudding was topped with toffee cream and pistachio praline. Really good but so heavy that we almost could not finish it after just having the fries! Share it instead of having it by yourself !

I loved this place ! Food, ambience, location, price were all quite acceptable for me. Try it and I'm sure you wont regret it !
