Twisted Fork is a busy little bistro on the Granville strip in downtown Vancouver. No reservations mean long waits, but as we arrived at the restaurant around 6:00PM, we managed to get seating almost immediately.
The restaurant features an open kitchen concept with seating that features an ample amount of pillows. In a word, it’s “chill.” Service is friendly.
The menu features a “fresh sheet”, featuring dishes which may change daily (updates are provided on their website).
The complimentary bread was average, suffering from being both cold and tough to the chew.
S ordered the Duck Confit with bacon braised cabbage, jus and pickled pumpkin. He said that it was “not bad.”
Mussels with Frites
I got the Mussels with Frites, which feature a pound of mussels tossed in cream sauce and topped with fries. I think the fries were actually yam fries, so that’s always a plus. However, the fries were quite soggy. The mussels were small, but sweet. Quite good
– Quality food
– Cozy ambiance with friendly service
– Bread was disappointing
– Usually long waits and no reservations
