I was going to check out the Taste Of Yaletown but I am not a super fan of Yaletown, I generally dislike the lack of parking and the pink velour tracksuits but love the food there. So I called the Pinky's nearby and they said they are offering a Georgia Straight special which is the same thing as the Taste Of Yaletown. For 25 dollars you get your choice of appetizer, an entree and a dessert, which we found to be a great deal.

For my starter I opted for the French Onion Soup over the Ceasar salad. The soup was great, nice and cheesy, hot, and it wasn't salty which is a pitfall for many french onion soups. For entree, I had the 7oz sirloin steak, done medium rare. It came accessorized with a few onion rings, a fantastic baked potato, and some fresh horseradish. The steak for the price was a great taste, it wasn't amazing but for the price it was delish. Comparing it to the Keg it matches it on par and was cooked to perfection. For dessert I enjoyed the chocolate pecan pie which was fantastic, the marriage between pecans, chocolate and the whipping cream was just perfect.

The stinky part is the atmosphere is cheesy, Pinky's is part of the Brown's Restaurant chain, and therefore has the same cheesy atmosphere as you would see in Cactus Club or Browns but the service and food was good. The bonus was we ordered a bottle of wine and what we didn't finish was corked up for us to take home. A nice road pop for the walk home.

I would return for the 25 dollar deal in a heart beat.
