La Pentola, Yaletown, Vancouver

As part of the Media Preview Tour, we got a taste of La Pentola! This 3-year-old upscale eatery offers rustic Northern Italian inspired fare. It’s situated in the “Forbes Four-Star” and “Top 5 Trendiest Hotels in the World” – OPUS Hotel Vancouver.

Today, we were pampered with a delicious selection from their specially crafted $45 Taste of Yaletown Dinner Menu by Chef Travis McCord.

1st COURSE

Cauliflower and Endive SaladWe kick started our meal with the creamy Cauliflower and Endive Salad with bagna cauda and pecorino.ParmesanSouffléThen, this vegetarian beauty caught our eyes the Parmesan Soufflé. Crisp on the outside and light, cheesy, and fluffy on the inside. A bite paired with roasted beets and balsamic carrots, delicious!

 

2nd COURSE

Simple, hand crafted pasta with flour made in-house! YES! They make everything in-house, even their flour!TaglieriniFirst off, we got a taste of their Taglierini, a thin ribbon shaped pasta that is similar to tagliatelle. The pasta was served with tender octopus and arrabiatta, sprinkled with bottarga.Tagliatelle BologneseThe second pasta dish we got a taste of was the Tagliatelle Bolognese. The al dente pasta, with crumbly and moist mince, was served with rich and silky bolognese. Comforting and yummy!

 

3rd COURSELing CodThe crispy skin Ling Cod was served with roasted tomato purée, peppers, baby squid and fragrant black olive oil.Grilled Skirt SteakHere comes the star of the meal – the Grilled Skirt Steak. Served with arugula, pine nuts, balsamic and parmesan. The flavorful skirt steak was juicy and delicious!
