Mon-Sun: 12pm - midnight
45 Blood Alley Square, Vancouver BC, Canada
The Salt Tasting Room takes diners off the beaten path to Vancouver's infamous Blood Alley in historic Gastown. Housed in an open, exposed-brick room, the Salt Tasting Room is all about the art of pairing. Diners can select for a list of 10 different cheese, cured meats, and condiments that are selected from local charcuterie producers. Then, these selections are artfully paired with wines, beers, Ports, and Sherries from the restaurant's extensive drinks menu, which changes on a weekly basis.
As tasting is encouraged, diners have the option of ordering wines as 2-ounce tasters. In addition, Tasting Flights, which include three 2-ounce tasters paired with tasting plates, are available. If patrons are unable to make up their mind, the Salt Tasting Room offers three of its own options, including the Best of B.C. Plate, with three locally produced items and three condiments.
The Salt Tasting Room was a Georgia Straight Golden Plates Award Best New Restaurant winner in 2006 and was most recently voted Best Wine Bar by readers. There are more than a dozen Sherries on the menu as well as white, red, and sweet wines. The beer, cider, and spirits are sourced both locally and from the United States and Europe.
