Two years ago I was featured on the Food Network, filling my face with a delicious crab cake. They were filming “Eat Street,” a new series on international food carts and I had been invited by the owners of Feastro the Rolling Bistro to stop by to add a little local colour. The publicity from that series landed the Feastro a coveted food cart licence in Vancouver, where they have now been operating for two years, and while that was good for them, I felt a little like a bride abandoned at the alter.
But all that has changed. There’s a new rolling bistro in my life and I’m lovin’ it. The Lighthouse Pub, recently named as one of the best places in BC to watch the Canucks, have cloned their creative kitchen into Lighthouse on Location and have set up their rolling food cart on the Davis Bay Seawall.
Location, location, location is a large part of the success of any business and the Davis Bay Seawall is one of the finest on the planet. With mind-blowing views looking across Georgia Strait to the mountains of Vancouver Island, and plenty of inviting driftwood logs to lean up against while enjoying the sun, it’s a pretty cool place to enjoy some fine cooked food.
This magnificent location has inspired the menu and seafood is a big part of their offerings. The small menu includes Baha Fish Tacos, Smoked Salmon Chowder, Fish & Chips, and for the carnivores, a choice of either Philly Cheesesteak or Pulled Pork Tacos. I ordered the Fish Tacos and was not disappointed… a perfectly cooked piece of fish with a crisp slaw and freshly prepared salsa.
I’m already planning my next lunch and I know I’ll work my way through the menu many times throughout the summer. Mmmm… I wonder if I can get them to add fish cakes to the menu? Stay posted.
