The Goods from Boulevard Kitchen & Oyster Bar
Vancouver, BC | As Boulevard Kitchen & Oyster Bar reopens its indoor dining room, the award-winning team launches new not-to-miss spot prawn features and an elevated summer cocktail lineup. Patrons will be able to enjoy these latest culinary offerings in their choice of the elegant indoor dining room or the lush oasis that has become one of Vancouver’s most coveted patios.
Spot Prawn Season at Boulevard | Executive Chef Roger Ma, has on offer three new spot prawn features. The Canadian Culinary Champion takes the celebrated local ingredient and wows diners by implementing advanced technique and international flavours. Ma’s Drunken Spot Prawns are prepared in a deeply flavourful Shaoxing rice wine broth, the aromatic amber broth and the addition of lime complement the sweet prawns perfectly. Ma dresses his Spot Prawn Tartar dish with a nigiri sake emulsion and utilizes puffed sorghum to add a pleasant crunch to the creamy tartar of spot prawns and fava beans. Lastly, Ma draws influence from Italy with a Spot Prawn Gnocchi with English peas, prawn bisque and Calabrian chilli crumb for a main course.
