Last night I went out for dinner with a couple of friends. We decided to try a little cafe-type restaurant called NOSH. I found out about it through Dineout Vancouver, but I never had the chance to go during the festival 🙁 It opened up just a couple months ago, but it had lots of good reviews!
The restaurant is located near the corner of Trafalgar Street and West Broadway; for UBC students, this translates into the Macdonald Street stop on the 99 B-line.
Of course, you have to do a little walking. What’d you expect?
NOSH is pretty casual, but it has an intimate atmosphere—probably due to the small dining area. It’s nice and fresh-feeling, with wood floors and furniture.
I had a duck confit dish, which is served with a pot of roasted veggies and brussels sprouts. The sauce was salty and delicious, and I even ate the brussel sprouts—which is impressive, because I am not usually a sprout-eater. But omnomnom.
Looks pretty fancy, doesn’t it?
For dessert, I had something called a Caramel Budino. It was something like a creamy custard dessert, except 109482091238 times better because it was caramel and toffee and unidentified cake bottom. And it came in a little glass jar. So cute.
The best part is that for something that looked and tasted high-class, it was cheap! Tax-included, I spent barely over $20. Definitely an affordable meal for any student! So if you’re looking for somewhere new to eat, I suggest NOSH 🙂
