Friday Night = Dinner with the girls :)
Friday night I was meeting up with some of my gfs I used to work at Robeez with - and since we all live somewhat in the SFU / Tri-cities area we figured we would meet up at a mutual spot. Denise suggested Cactus Club, and even though it's a really popular spot in Vancouver and has been around forever - it was only my 3rd time visiting.
Cactus Club does not take reservations, but thankfully we got a table by the bar/lounge right away which was perfect as it was showing the NCAA Kentucky game which they won :)
I was really thinking of getting the duck sandwhich, but I was worried it would be really messy - so I went with the Halibut Soft Tacos - seared cajun halibut, chipotle aioli, shredded green cabbage & salsa fresca for $13. I also added on a side on crispy yam fries with garlic aioli for $4.
This dish was pretty good. Not the best fish tacos I have had, but still pretty good, and it had a good amount of Halibut in it. The Yam fries were also really good.
Denise went with the pesto chicken quesadilla – roasted chicken, blended cheeses, sundried cranberries for $10.25 with a side of yam fries for $4. Yam fries were the hit of the night.
Tianna went with the gardenburger – grilled veggie patty, sautéed mushrooms, melted aged cheddar for $13.75 and subbed for yam fries for $1.50. She also got a side of JD BBQ sauce for $1.10.
Aileen ordered the twice braised pineapple ginger short rib – boneless short rib basted in a pineapple ginger glaze with shiitake mushrooms, spicy soy bean sauce, mashed potatoes, and sugar snap peas for $23. She loved this, and the mushrooms looked really good!
