GRUB | Trendy Dining x Haven Kitchen + Bar x Langley

Haven Kitchen + Bar | Langley, BC

LangleyHaven Kitchen + Bar markets itself as "modern casual dining", whatever that means to you. Located just off a seemingly random car park somewhere in the suburban depths of the Fraser Valley, the trendy spot feels intimately hip and vibrant with a nice array of dishes and beverages to enjoy.

Bullet with the Butterfly Wings (with bourbon, yuzu, caramelized honey, Thai basil, and cantaloupe)
With a full specialty cocktail list to complement its somewhat refined dining menu of various items of Pacific Northwestern influences, it feels like they're very much aiming for a "something for everyone" attitude in terms of its broad appeal.

dill pickle fried chicken wings (with dill pickle spices, dirty pickles, and ranch dipping sauce)
Most of everything ordered seemingly did the trick with well-prepared, cooked, and served items with pleasing flavours and ingredients to reflect tastes on the outskirts of city-dwellers.

Tourist (with vodka, Galliano, spinach, coconut water, and passionfruit)
Just about everyone seemed to have ordered a Haven's signature green cocktail that was safely funky in its mild novelty.

Inside the restaurant designed by House of Bohn, the decor and general interior design looked absolutely gorgeous and ornate with some colourfully gold-finished throughout the dining space but avoiding any gawdy contemporary details.

Haven Burger (with applewood smoked bacon, cheddar cheese, and caramelized onions on a brioche bun with truffle fries)
Haven meets expectations as a bright and shiny restaurant that's fairly pleasing while being a safe bet to eat and drink. It also manages to make its ultra hipness an inviting presence instead of an annoying feature.
