Once you step inside, the environment transports you to a different world. Full of rustic wooden and metal steel decor, it’s half brewery and half pub/restaurant. When I say half brewery, I literally mean they brew the beer next to where you eat and you can see the ‘factory’. Super cool.
They had a pretty good selection of beer for the Beer Flights ($8.00). I honestly don’t remember the exact names, but all of them were premium craft beer.
I went with the White and Pink Wine Flight ($12) and I absolutely loved it. I am in no way a wine connoisseur so it was really interesting to taste all the different flavours and tones of the white and pink wines. All were delicious and if it weren’t a little pricey, I would’ve gotten another one. 😛
They don’t give you that much wine in each flight so I would recommend trying the flight, finding the one you love, and getting a glass of that.
The Shrimp Spaghetti Nero ($16) while super delicious and was everything I love about squid ink pasta, the portion was a bit small and lacked depth of flavour. For 16 dollars I feel like the portion could definitely have been doubled but that’s just my gluttony talking. 😛
Now this ladies and gentlemen, should be the reason you visit The Belgard Kitchen. They elevated the comforting homey grilled cheese and tomato soup to a dish called Tomato Soup Fondue with Grilled Cheese Toasties ($13). The cheese could not be gooeier and more delicious when paired with the concentrated tomato fondue. So good….just…so good.
The Red Wine Flight ($12). I didn’t try this so I can’t speak to how the red wine was.
Flank Steak with Chimichurri ($15). Very delicious but similar to the other dishes, I wish there was more of it.
Even though the Belgard Kitchen offers a lot of unique offerings I have yet to find in other Vancouver restaurants like wine flights and tomato soup fondue, I found the price/portion ratio to be a bit off for me. We all spent around 45 dollars and when I got home I was already hungry again!
