Aleph Eatery is a Middle Eastern restaurant that recently just opened in Vancouver at 1889 Powell Street. The space although tight is bright, airy and cozy – decor cross sectioned between Kinfolk and Cereal Magazine. Pastel pallets faded and banquette seating frames the restaurant with floating tables to maximize space. I am in love. Plus it is baby friendly – the owners welcomed baby (and stroller) without giving us a side-eye.
To start, two cups of Arabic Coffee with Matchstick Roasters coffee beans.
If you come here for the Hummus, I would suggest you order the Silk Road.
Silk Road 12: eggplant, labneh, hummus, zaatar, honey. One of the best dip platter around with great flavour profiles that doesn’t become too washed up. +2 add extra chimichurri saj.
Fattoush Salad 8 small | 10 large: Brightly flavoured with a good balance of acidity. Cucumbers, tomatoes, croutons, pomegranate vinaigrette.
If you haven’t had a chance to visit Aleph, we highly recommend it. If the restaurant isn’t too busy young entrepreneurs Haitham and Fiona are friendly and would tell you the story behind the restaurant.

Coquille Fine Seafood is restaurant for seafood lovers. It is located in Vancouver Gastown at 181 Carrall Street where Secret Location used to be. This pink restaurant features Millennial pink booth seats that reminds you of Oretta in Toronto and Sketch in London. You may remember local chefs and co-owners Lee Cooper and Jack Chen from L’Abattoir and general manager Liam Todd from Osteria Savio Volpe and Nightingale.
Coquille is open for lunch, happy hour, dinner and late-night drinks seven days a week. Menu focuses on fresh oysters, crudos, fish, shellfish and instagram worthy seafood platters.
Mackeral Crudo 14: bite worthy cucumber and scallions.
Burrata 17: delicious caponata with white anchovy and sourdough.
Red Sea Urchin 6/tongue: By far the creamiest and tastiest uni this season. Topped with salmon roe and seaweed. Priced to sell.
Mussels 19: plumped and juicy with bacon and cider.
Coquille could be my newest favourite restaurant and chic hang out spot. It is perfect for that date night and girls night out. I can’t wait to come back for more.

The classic Canadian Caesar cocktail is one of my favourite drinks to order during Happy Hour or Brunch. For my American friends, it is a Bloody Mary with clam juice! The secret is the clam juice. Clam juice makes everything better! Ordering a Caesar is easy. Making a kick ass Caesar from scratch takes time. Making a kick ass Caesar with Walter Craft Caesar Mix is super easy!
Walter has become my Caesar mix of choice. I mean they’ve pretty much got the mixture down to a science. Walter is pre-seasoned with real grated horseradish, select spices, Wochestershire and hot sauce, and comes in 2 flavours: Classic Spice and Mild Spice.
It is so easy that many people choose to just add a premium vodka. It is fail-proof! However, if you are like me and really like it really spicy, feel free make it naughty. The Mild Spice still has great, bold flavour, but is toned down on the spice level a fair bit. It is ready to drink for those of you who like a nice mild Caesar. It also makes for a perfect base to add whatever spices and extras you like.
I love that Walter Caesar Mix are made in small batches with no artificial flavours, colours, MSG and is Ocean Wise.
How To Make the Perfect Caesar Cocktail
Rim a highball glass with lime.
For the perfect rim, use Walter Craft Caesar Rim. It is made with flake salt, organic cane sugar, smoked paprika, and a whole host of other seasonings & spices. This craft Caesar rim is designed to be the perfect compliment to your Caesar.
Fill the shaker with 1 oz premium vodka, 4 oz Walter Craft Caesar Mix (I like to use Classic Spice), a squeeze of lime juice, cracked black pepper, a dash of hot sauce to make it extra spicy and garnish with these spicy pepperoni sticks from KRAVE.
Feel free to add celery sticks, olives, cocktail prawns, salami or marinated boccaccini cheese… Really the garnishes can be limitless.
