Burrard Public House in Port Moody

Have you ever been to Port Moody? It’s at the end of the Barnet Highway and is directly across the water from Deep Cove. It’s a great place to live and play.

A few days ago I went to the Burrard Public House on St. John’s Street in Port Moody which opened at the tail end of November 2011. Formerly a hotel, the new owners have done a complete renovation to the interior, and I have to say it’s pretty nice. It’s a big place with large booths and lots of seating. I went on a Tuesday, but I’ve been following their Facebook page for a few months and driven past on weekends and it looks like they can put on a good party.

Cucumber Collins

I started off with a Cucumber Collins (Rochele is a cocktail girl, Scott is a beer man) and it was refreshing, but just a little too sweet. I tried my friend’s Mango Mojito, too, and I liked that a lot more. The mango was subtle, but it is there.

Fresh Flash Fried Potato Chips

I could not resist their Fresh Flash Fried Potato Chips. They were fun and tasty with cajun seasoning and an aoili sauce on the side. I resisted asking for ketchup, but it was very much a hybrid of potato chips and French fries. I am grateful that I had someone to share them with, because there is a lot in one order of these. For a main plate I ordered the Perogies, served with bacon, onions, and sour cream. It was good pub food, exactly what I was expecting.

Perogies with Bacon, Onions, and Sour Cream

I wish that it wasn’t a Tuesday, that I didn’t have to work the next day, and that I didn’t have to drive. They have a lot of drink specials throughout the week. They also have a patio, so I might be a regular there this summer. Let me know what you think! – Rochele
