Hello again food friends! Last week, mother deer went to Burnaby Riverway clubhouse with her friends for the $25 for a 3 course meal promo. When she got home that night, she told us all about how delicious everything was and naturally, the rest of us got jealous of her. So, we decided that we would all go to Burnaby Mountain Clubhouse and enjoy it there as well. I’ve been to Burnaby Mountain Clubhouse before in the past for Dineout Vancouver and another one of the $25 for 3 course meal deals and you can read all about those experiences here and here.
Here’s the menu for the $25 meal deal. It reminded me of the menu offerings that they have for Dineout Vancouver (which is coming up by the way!). I thought that there was quite a bit of variety since they had a beef, lamb, salmon, vegetarian and burger option for the main course.
I decided to start with the root salad despite already having a salad for lunch because I can’t get enough of roasted veggies! I liked how there was butternut squash, beets and finger carrots on the plate so everything looked colourful and appetizing. Under the root veggies was a bed of kale slaw and it came with a hummus aioli. I got my dressing on the side because I don’t like my salad overdressed but I regretted the decision because the hummus was so thick that it was hard to mix in with everything. I’d say that the coconut shrimp salad was the better option out of the two salads but rainbow salads just get to me!
Mother deer and old bean decided to get the Chef’s soup with toast. It was a rich butternut squash soup that was heavy on the cinnamon and nutmeg to bring out the festive flavors.
For the main, brother deer decided to go for the lobster burger. As you can see, it was quite the tower of food. It was a beef burger topped with a lobster tail and two grilled prawns. Then as though that wasn’t enough food already, it came with a side of fries (or salad).
He ate the seafood first and right after he took it off, you can already see that the “wow factor” has completely disappeared.
Old bean decided to get the steak and you can read all about it on my previous post.
Lil’ bun and I got the sockeye salmon. It was a grilled piece of sockeye on top of a bed of linguine bathed in a crab rose sauce. You couldn’t really taste the crab in the sauce but it was very rich and creamy.
Lil’ bun isn’t usually a salmon person but the taste of the char on the salmon got to her and she ended up loving the plate. It was actually quite the portion too because neither of us finished it. Hurray for having the rest for lunch the next day 🙂
Then last but not least was dessert. We didn’t like the fact that there was only one option offered for dessert since when we came here in the past there was a choice.
The sugar waffle was topped with a scoop of cookie dough icecream, chocolate sauce and strawberry compote. We all thought that the dessert was far too sweet and I actually ended up eating chunks of sugar that was hiding in my waffle. I mean I guess it looked more appetizing with all the glitz and glam on top but it just ended up being too much for our palates. Nevertheless we had a great visit and I can’t wait for Dineout so I can be back again soon!
