Saying good-bye to an awesome colleague is always hard. One of my colleagues decided to resign his current position to move on with his own business. A few of us decided to go for a quick lunch with him since it was his last day. I work at the airport so finding a decent place to eat is always the most difficult part of planning for lunch out. I’m pretty sure everyone is aware of the horrible food options at the Vancouver International Airport. However, there was this one place I’ve been always wanting to try out. Flying Beaver Bar & Grill is located within the Sea Island at the seaplane terminal. It is definitely a hidden gem because it is almost impossible for people to find it. However, the coolest thing about this place is that it is right on the water and you actually get to watch the seaplanes take off! How cool is that? On top of that, foods here are pretty decent considering the fact it is a pub!
Wok Style Calamari – 3/5
- crispy calamari served with sweet ginger aioli
- It was little to fatty for my tasting.
Famous Chicken Wings – 3.5/5
- $10.50 (10 pieces)
- You can get 16 pieces for $14.50.
- Flavors are Honey Garlic, BBQ, Teriyaki, Thai Chili, Hot, Salt & Pepper, or Lemon Pepper
- Wings were large in portion and meaty.
Fish & chips– 3/5
- It was served with coleslaw and some fries.
- We got the cod for our fish and it was decent but nothing spectacular.
- The batter was little soggy rather than being crispy.
Veggie Burger – N/A
- I did not get to try this burger but it had good quantity.
Surf & Turf – 3/5
- It comes with 7 oz sirloin steak, sauteed garlic prawns, potato, and asparagus.
- The steak was little bit chewy for my tasting but it was decent for pub food.
Seafood Grill – 3/5
- It is served with two seafood skewers with salmon, halibut, and tiger prawns.
- The skewers were marinated with ginger soy glaze and served with jasmine rice.
- I thought seafood was cooked well and the glaze gave a nice kick to it.
Flying Beaver Bar & Grill serves solid food in a cool atmosphere. I will definitely come back here especially during the summer season to enjoy the nice view with my cold beer 🙂
