Blue Water Cafe's sustainable seafood unsung heroes menu returns
Once again, throughout the month of February, Blue Water Cafe (1095 Hamilton Street) is offering its Unsung Heroes promotion, encouraging patrons to give less familiar sustainable seafood a try.
Executive chef Frank Pabst’s Unsung menu consists of sharing plates ($9.50 to $16.50 each), as few or as many as you like, along with dishes from the regular menu.
Dishes range from the relatively approachable, such as white anchovy bruschetta with marinated red peppers, to the more adventurous, such as sea cucumber with squid ink fettuccine. (For those who’ve never tried it, sea cucumber tastes like a cross between squid and jellyfish.)
Here are some photos of what's on the menu, taken at a recent media preview.
Ten percent of proceeds from the menu go to the Vancouver Aquarium’s Ocean Wise program; see bluewatercafe.net/.
