V-Day at the Opus

For Valentine’s Day, the Opus Hotel in Vancouver borrowed a page (or two) from the menu of Koko, the restaurant in the sister hotel in Montreal. The theme was Pan-Asian, which seemed approrpriate, since I was with a Pan-Asian, the Texas Twister.

Chinese lanterns, a jazz trio, and a menu featuring exotically spiced pheasant, lamb and lobster (w/a masala, my selection) were included in the package, along with wine tastings. An amuse bouche, an oyster, slipped down easily with a glass of Champagne, followed by a second course—I had the tom ka soup with tempura prawns. A fruit sushi roll was the capper on the meal, although a chocolate dessert with banana added a decadent denouement. Mais oui.
