I was lucky enough to visit Hart House in Burnaby for dinner again~ It’s the beautiful mansion that has been fashioned into a restaurant. Settled on scenic Deer Lake Avenue, the location is so beautiful, and I really enjoyed this visit compared to my previous visit.

We started off with a comfortable seat by the window. The host recognized us and I cheerily replied, “Yes, we come here all the time!” I think this is why we got complimentary pâté along with our baguette. xD If there’s one thing to know about me, I really do love pâté!

The pickled strawberry really added to the flavour of the pâté and its sauce~

Feeling particularly adventurous, I also ordered a Leek and Potato soup to start. The colour wasn’t very flattering, but the soup itself was okay…

Anyway, for the main dish, I went with my usual duck, which in this case was Fraser Valley Duck Breast! It was flavourful and simply divine, compared to the disappointing duck I had at CRU months back. (On a side note, I swear, CRU has been slowly declining.)

It was so delicious! The sauce, the flavouring, the texture of the duck breast. I really liked it!

A couple months back, I visited “Mistral Bistro” for Vancouver dine-out and had some very delicious duck as well. So if duck’s your thing (like it is mine) and you happen to be in the area, definitely give Hart House or Mistral Bistro a chance.

U3 had the ‘Catch of the Day’ which was freshly caught Halibut, seared to perfection. That fish was amazingly fresh, crisp on the outside and melty-soft on the inside.

Seared Fresh Halibut~

I forgot the name of the red wine I ordered to accompany the meal, but it was good too! Wine always seems to make good things even better. :3 Anyway, I just wanted to share the positive experience I had at Hart House to make me like them again. Haha~

Thanks for visiting~♡
