Drinks and appetizers at Edible Canada bistro at the market at Granville Island on July 18, 2011.

After our taco adventure at La Taqueira, Dennis, Colene, and I (later joined by May) jetted down to Granville Island to enjoy another new resto, going for drinks and appies at Edible on Granville Island outside on the patio.



It wouldn't be a night on the town without running into someone as we spotted the adorable Cyndi Hunter, who snapped up a cute pic of us.

We started off excitingly with sangrias complete with watermelon, cherries, and fruity goodness. Sadly, however, it was a big disappointment.

We even told our server about the weak, watery taste, and lack of flavour. They graciously apologized and explained they were still tinkering and fine tuning with drink recipes.

Our next drink of choice, the 2010 Stoneboat Chorus.

It's a blend of pinot blanc, pinot gris, other whites, and was delicious, being a perfect, light, patio drink.

As for appetizers, we were piqued by the duck fat fries with bacon aioli. I dug it, very tasty and rich.

Dennis, the bacon expert, insisted on some double-smoked hickory goodness, an add-on side item the menu. They gave us four healthy pieces for each of us and it was so good we had seconds. It was like jerky.

We even fashioned mini-sandwiches with all our appetizers from all our little treats. It was pretty great.

We also had the Artisan bread basket with lobster oil and pinot noir balsamic. We tried both the normal and glutton free bread.

The regular bread was so much better. We joked we could taste the glutton.



We had a great time sitting outside in the summer twilight enjoying with our drinks on a random Monday evening. I'm definitely interested in coming back, particularly for brunch as the service and staff were friendly and prompt.
