Bishop's

March 10, 2015


Butter poached side stripe prawns w bisque sauce, celery, parsnip purée - 2

J's comment > not bad; very fresh and crisp prawns; bisque sauce flavorful but a touch salty; parsnip puree avg

Manitoba Pickerel w confit potatoes, winter vegetables, herb beurre blanc - 2

J's comment > not bad; pickerel just the slightest bit dry but still good; loved the different root veggies presentation; would have liked more beurre blanc

Hazelmere Farms Beets w house-made mascarpone, rye crumble, caraway vinaigrette - 2

J's comment > not bad; beets cooked well, not hard and crunchy like Campagnolo's; on the other hand, really liked the crunchy beet chips; mascarpone and rye crumble lovely accompaniments that actually enhanced the main star (the beets) instead of just looking pretty

Fraser Valley Duck Breast w king oyster mushroom, swiss chard, duck confit & mushroom ravioli - 2

J's comment > flavors OK, but would have liked a touch more sauce; both ravioli and duck breast were firmer than I prefer, the duck being almost difficult to cut through; sadly, the main attraction on this dish was the mushroom which was very juicy and tender 

Complimentary amuse bouche: Salmon mousse - 2

J's comment > decent salmon mousse, not fishy

Complimentary bread and butter - 2

J's comment > good soft bread, but room temp, not warm; butter lightly salted

Lemon Cream Tart w strawberry, whipped cream and white chocolate ganache - 2+

J's comment > best lemon tart crust! insanely crisp and flaky, really, the best tart crust I've ever come across; lemon filling decent; strawberry puree was a nice touch; cream was good, fluffy and all that jazz, but for some reason didn't quite grab my attention as it usually does on other dishes

Blueberry Galette w Earl Grey caramel and vanillla ice cream - 2

J's comment > not bad; another very well done pastry shell; served warm; galette was a bit soft at the bottom, but wasn't soggy in the least; didn't get the earl grey flavor unfortunately; much better than fruit pies, Vancouver needs a galette shop serving galettes of this calibre
