Vancouver, BC | This Sunday evening our beloved Oakwood burger will be peacefully laid to rest. Due to the powers above, we are unable to serve the beef cooked to our guests’ desired temperature. This leaves us no other choice but to reinvent a new trademark burger to launch on Tuesday February 25th. A Celebration Of Life will be held the evening of Sunday, February 23rd to commemorate the Oakwood burger. On the menu since we opened our doors, it has been responsible for bringing many of our customers back to the Oakwood time and time again. And helping us to pay tribute to the burger will be one of the Lower Mainland’s fastest growing indie folk rock bands. The show starts at 8:30pm and cover is only $10. So come and commemorate the dish that built The Oakwood. Although the evening’s focus will be on the burger, we will also have our kale salad, poutine, and beef tartar on offer. As always, we open at 5pm and will be serving late. Learn more about the restaurant after the jump… Read more

AWESOME THING WE ATE #880: Beef Brisket Poutine At “The Oakwood” In Kits

November 21, 2012 

by Andrew Morrison | Poutine can be pretty gross in and of itself, but what of the poutine that has gone ahead and coupled itself with some meat? A disgusting self-indulgence, right? An over-self-indulgence. Well, not always. It’s actually not all that far removed from a Sunday dinner, minus the sprouts, yams and Yorkshires. While it is absolutely excessive, it doesn’t have to be as disgusting as it sounds. This one – found recently at The Oakwood in Kits – was pretty damn decadent without being repulsive. The pile of brisket had been smoked in-house and was added last as a crowning garnish (still warm, and untouched by gravy). The meat had great texture and flavour; prepped to a standard a carnivore fetishist would aspire to with exacting care in the kitchen. In the photo you can see a fatty edge or two, and there in lies the magic, the draught that convinces the eater that all is right in the world, that no pounds will be gained, that the next Star Wars movies won’t suffer a Jar Jar Binks or dialogue made of pine. The fat accelerates the meat’s overall melt on the tongue, and it’s a beautiful thing to feel as much as taste; so much better than the usual soggy short rib’s molar invading chew. Added bonus: the dish is presented in a skillet on top of a tree stump. How cool is that?
