Dropped in for dinner tonight at WildTale Coastal Grill in Yaletown. Started off with a couple appies, crab cakes & squid.

Brunch at Chambar

Brunch at Chambar is always pretty great, today I tried something different – the “paella” which was nothing like regular paella, but delicous none the less. Fried egg, curried orzo, spicy andouille, zucchini, red pepper, roasted corn, grana padano, arugula, avocado and tomato salad. A photo posted by Meighan (@megzzz) on Dec 13, 2015 at […]
