Blue Crab Bar and Grill

The Best First
White Chocolate Croissant Bread Pudding with Honey Frozen Yogurt

This is so good the restaurant now dubs it "Must Have" on the menu. You really must. I can't even tell you that I could have eaten three of them, even though I couldn't even finish my meal. Layers and layers of croissant bread pudding, strawberries, macadamia and a sweet caramel rum sauce. The honey yogurt, though amazing, was very much granita like to me and my BFF. In any case- best dessert I've EVER eaten, hands down.

Rib Eye with Fig Jam

Mister went to the restroom before his plate hit the table, I started eating the steak (Yeah, I'm back on- I just zone out...) before he arrived, BFF started eating his potatoes. Good choice Mister.

Cowichan Valley Smoked Duck Breast and Thigh with Barley Risotto and apple salad

My choice for dinner and it was good, just not as good as I remember having last year, which was a sirloin... I think. Anyway... the duck was really smoky, my taste buds were telling me bacon. I loved the apple salad and barely roasted veggies. The barley risotto was exceptionally good especially the bits sitting in the ice wine pan sauce of the duck. I brought the leg piece home for Maisie, she and her cat will be eating it sometime today.
PS: I love wilted KALE, I should eat it often. Oh, and portions... big.

Petales d'Osoyoos

BFF always picks a good wine, this was no different and for $40 a bottle even our very knowledgeable server Mike agreed that it gave its counter part (the winery only makes two) a run for its money considering the other is $105 a bottle. I'm no wine expert or even slightly going to say I know anything about it, but it was good and I'm not usually a fan of the wine. Go buy a bottle- if you can find it.
