Bearfoot Bistro - Whistler

A week after I came back from Singapore, we took off for a weekend in Whistler in early Novemeber.  Given that it was off season, the drive up was extremely pleasant.  The village was eerily quiet - I've never seen it so empty before.  Parking was a breeze. 

I decided to start with some oysters.  I like my oysters with just a splash of lemon juice and these were perfect as they were extremely fresh.  The horseradish and the red wine vinaigrette was  a good complement too.  
Oysters on Half Shell, Fresh Horseradish and Lemon
D had the fennel cured artic char, it was a nice meld of flavours and the puffed quinoa gave the dish a nice crunchy finish.

We had a yummy palate cleanser before starting on our mains of buffalo and beef cheek.  Again, nice flavours that highlighted the fresh produce.   I always look forward to dessert and the desserts sure didn't disappoint.  I'll definitely be back again.
