Taste of Yaletown - Section (3)

Went out to eat on an impulse last night with my sis and coworker. I decided I wanted to try out a restaurant for Taste of Yaletown and looking at Open Table and saw that several restaurants still had reservations available. I choose to go with Section (3) mainly because of the Jumbo Prawns they offered on their menu. Hahah.


The decor was in the spirit of Halloween with skulls hanging from the lights. (Sorry for the red photos. There was a red fluorescent light right above me.)


My sis and I choose to order from the Taste of Yaletown menu while my coworker opted for the traditional menu.

We both ordered the same appetizer: Grilled Lamb Chop with potatoes au gratin. I liked it though K said that it was a tiny bit gamey. I don't know since it doesn't bother me. Eat the lamb chop first because the potatoes are more flavoured than the lamb.

For my main, I ordered the Butter Poached Jumbo Prawns bacon and lemon garlic cream. SO DELICIOUS. The reason I went to this restaurant did not disappoint. The black stuff you see in the photo is actually spinach. Under the red light, green looks black. lol

K ordered the "Shepherd's Pie" and that was pretty good too. I prefer my prawns though.

My coworker ordered yummy ribs which was accompanied by Mac n' Cheese. As you can see his portion was much bigger...but he didn't have an appetizer or dessert.

For dessert, we had Crème Brûlée, which was delicious. The only thing was that the sugar was burnt and SO THICK! It was so hard that it took a lot of force just to break through meanwhile the cream was squishing out.  lol

All in all it was a satisfying meal and the service wasn't bad either.
