Cactus Club on Burrard

March 27, 2015

Prawn Spaghettini w slow-roasted tomato sauce, chilies, fresh herbs, crostini - 2+

J's comment > very tasty and perfectly cooked spaghettini, exactly as remembered from previous visits; generous amt of fresh prawns to boot; crostini not too hard, generously doused in butter :D

Double-braised pineapple hoisin short rib w pineapple ginger glaze, shitake mushrooms, korean chili sauce, buttered mashed potatoes, snap peas - 2

J's comment > not bad; well cooked short rib, very tender and flavorful, sauce a smidgen salty; mash and peas also decent; a good dish, but nothing I haven't had before

Thai red curry Pacific lingcod: Ocean wise line caught lingcod, Thai red curry sauce, coconut almond rice, crispy wontons, micro cilantro - 2

J's comment > fish sadly overcooked, almost dry; sauce and crispy wontons w the rice took center stage instead which were very tasty on their own

Crispy dry ribs w sea salt, cracked pepper - 2

J's comment > key word being dry, ribs were indeed just that, a bit tough and chewy to boot; sadly not as good as previous visit
