Four Winds Brewing – this liquid sunshine is like summer in a bottle. Deliciously brewed in reverence of the old world sour wheat ales of Berlin, this Berliner-style Weisse is light in body with a faint earthy mineral essence. Sour in nature and refreshingly effervescent.

Grand River Seafood Restaurant Coquitlam | 濠江尚品海鮮酒家

Grand River Seafood Restaurant Coquitlam | 濠江尚品海鮮酒家

Grand River Seafood Restaurant 濠江尚品海鮮酒家 is a Chinese restaurant located in Coquitlam (next to Silvercity Cineplex Cinemas) on 100 Schoolhouse Street. This is another humble restaurant with minimal decor. This restaurant offers dim sum lunch service as well as seafood dinner (set menus and combos available). We’ve been here several times and consistency is an issue. Food quality is not always up to par.

 

Fish slice congee: watery and not a lot of ingredients. The congee base is not pillowy like Neptune Wonton and does not have the fresh fish taste like Eastern Pearl in Port Coquitlam.

 

Dim Sum option here at Grand River is not bad however. There are a lot of choices – some other Chinese restaurants in Tri-Cities does not have.

 

Deep Fried Bean Curd Shrimp Roll

 

Rice Roll with Chinese Donut and Shrimp Paste.

 

Three Mushroom Rice Rolls

 

Shrimp Dumplings

 

Curry Baby Octopus

 

Steamed Bean Curd Roll

 

Pineapple Bun BBQ Pork Bun

 

Deep Fried Sesame Balls: This is one of my favorite desserts here.

 

Not to confuse you, not Coquitlam has a Chinese restaurants all with the name “Grand”.

AnnaLena Welcomes Scott Mitchell as Assistant Manager & Sommelier

 

AnnaLena welcomes aboard the newest member of the management team, Scott Mitchell.
Scott’s career in Hospitality began 10 years ago in Western Australia’s Margaret River wine country; since then he’s pulled many pints in various Edinburgh pubs throughout his time at University and poured from one of the World’s largest whisky collections at Scotland’s famous Gleneagles Hotel.
Before moving to Vancouver in Summer 2016, he left his post as General Manager of Edinburgh’s The Bon Vivant – during which time they won a coveted ‘Tales of the Cocktail’ award, for ‘Best International Restaurant Bar’.
With a tremendous passion for everything surrounding the world of food and beverage service, alongside studying for his WSET Diploma in Wine & Spirits, Scott is relishing his time spent in the AnnaLena room; whether that be running a busy section, slinging cocktails behind the bar or helping the front of house team. Scott will also be working alongside GM Jeff Parr in developing the AnnaLena wine program.

 

 

About AnnaLena
Named to honour Chef Michael Robbins’ two grandmothers, AnnaLena is about imagination, creativity and possibility – combining modern Canadian cooking, creativity and innovation, with seamless service in one of Vancouver’s favourite neighbourhoods. Since opening its doors in the coveted Kitsilano area in March 2015, AnnaLena has quickly become both a neighbourhood and critics favourite.


AnnaLena was included in enRoute Magazine as the sixth best new restaurants in the country and earned the Air Canada enRoute People’s Choice award in its first year.

Mission Hill Winery Estate located heart of British Columbia’s breathtaking Okanagan Valley wine country is must for anyone visiting Kelowna for the first time. This trip was one that I will always remember and hold dear to my heart. The breathtaking scenery provides a great place for you to take refuge from the busyness of daily life and escape for while with a delicious glass (or bottle, we don’t judge) of wine. We came here on our second day of our Summerland road trip. After travelling from Vancouver and pre-drinking before at Sumac Ridge Estate Winery, we didn’t want to leave this beautiful place. We made sure we made dinner reservations at the Mission Hill Terrace Restaurant for dinner later that evening.

Upon arriving you are greeted at the gate with beautiful grapes and a stunning view. Even on a cloudy day, the view is mesmerizing. We sat on the grass for a long while talking nonsense, life and just soaking up God’s creation.

After all the wine tasting and touring I was ready to spend my $5 voucher and indulge on flights. 3 for $10 or any single for $4. If you purchase two bottles from the selected list, you can enjoy one tasting also. I really enjoyed their 06 SLC Chard and their SLC Syrah.

It is VERY IMPORTANT to keep the cheese and crackers you purchase close to you. There are many guests whom thinks it is free and communal and start reaching into your purchased food. Most are probably already intoxicated from the wine tour and wine tasting where common sense and mannerism is throw out the door.

And after all that wine drinking you can join us at the Mission Hill Terrace Restaurant to indulge in some seafood and steak.
