Fish House

November 23, 2014

Afternoon tea - 2

House made currant scone - 2

J's comment > not bad; very light and fluffy scone w a crisp exterior, crumbly, just the way I like it, but could be warmer though; white chocolate cream wasn't too sweet, but I still prefer devonshire cream

Sandwiches - 2

Mini Croissant: Oregon pink shrimp, pea shoots, dill aioli
Mini Bagel: Smoked salmon, fried capers, herb & garlic cream cheese
Herb Focaccia: Roasted vegetables, goat cheese
Challah Slider: Grilled chicken, fig compote, brie

J's comment > I appreciated the different variety of breads offered, from the soft croissant to the hard bagel; way too much bread to fillings ratio though unfortunately, but the flavors of the ingredients were OK

Sweets - 2

Praline tart
Coconut lemon tart
Caramel chocolate cup

J's comment > not bad; loved the crispness of the tart shells; excellent balance of the fillings and the shells; strong praline and lemon flavors, respectively; caramel chocolate cup was exactly that: strong caramel and chocolate

TWG Grand Wedding Tea: Black tea blended w sunflowers & exotic fruits - 2

J's comment > a light black tea, not too fruity actually; FYI, I usually choose stronger flavored teas so that the teas have a chance of showing up on the palate after eating anything from the afternoon tea tier

Jasmine Queen Tea: Jasmine flowers, green tea - 2

J's comment > much too light even on its own; after taking a bit of anything on the afternoon tea tier, it might as well have been drinking warm water

Afternoon Tea Menu

Fish House in Stanley Park on Urbanspoon

Extra Comments
We had a Living Social for this which is unfortunately over now, but there's still a Living Social for their 3 course dinner available even today.

For free parking after 6pm, head down Park Lane and make a left onto Lagoon Drive, following the path until you reach the backlot of the restaurant. Otherwise, you're paying for parking if you drive.
