The Mackenzie Room is a charming restaurant located on the fringes of Downtown Eastside at 415 Powell Street (across from Oppenheimer Park). Open kitchen, distressed walls, wood fixtures and chandeliers throws back time with a touch of modern.

The restaurant is named after William Mackenzie, founder of the Canadian Northern Railway (CNR). He is Andrew Jameson’s great great grandfather.

Partner and Chef, Sean Reeve (winner in “Leftovers” episode on Chopped Canada) creates a menu focus on fresh local ingredients. Plates are beautiful visually as it is flavorful. Everything is Instagram worthy.
We wanted to order everything to celebrate our second Anniversary. Since servings are generous, we decided to go with five appetizers and forgo the entrees. We will just have to make another trip back for the sable fish.

Dave on the other hand wanted to Netflix and Chill. Popcorn cream made it appropriate to share with splashes of Mongrel moonshine, salted maple, and black walnut bitters. Seriously stop that Netflix judgement nonsense and just play the next episode shall we?!

Showstopper Salad 14: Farmer’s cheese, pistachio vinaigrette. A delicious medley of fresh greens that probably could covert carnivore to an herbivore. And can we please talk about that great mouth texture of that creamy cheese?

Corn Porn 14: Cayenne butter, lime aioli, local cheese. Comes with side bowls of hot water and lemon to wash your hands with. I suggest skipping that white shirt and plan all black outfit!

Endive Pig Ears 14: breadcrumb smoked lactonessa, pickled eggs. The dash of lime ash was brilliant and the perfect amount of sour. The pig ears were deep fried. I miss the texture of chewiness typically enjoyed when it is marinated.

Fields of Gold 13: heirloom tomatoes, cukes, strawberries and basil. Sungold emulsion was absolutely delicious. I could have licked the plate clean if it was socially acceptable.

Rockfish Crudo 17: whey, chia crème fraiche, asparagus, kelp and dehydrated mustard seeds.

I’m looking forward for our next visit and order all the entrees!
