We decided to have one nice meal out during out Vancouver getaway. We ended up at two different food courts for two meals and another meal at our cousin's house. We wanted one sit down meal with cocktails but we had to cross our fingers that our boys behaved. Before leaving for our trip I found Tap & Barrel online and liked what I saw on the menu. It ended up being really kid friendly with highchairs, a kid's menu, and crayons. The weather was warm and sunny and the line for the patio was really long. But there was no wait inside and we were seated right away. Our boys did okay except for when they started throwing grapes at me, but you know. Since it was so nice out I wanted something light and fruity to sip on. I ended up getting a White Sangria and my husband had a beer. We started with some Poutine, a Canadian specialty. It consists of fries covered in gravy and cheese curds. My boys loved the Poutine and it was fun watching them try something new and have a foodie moment on vacation. Then we ordered several appetizers to share-a soft baked pretzel, a meat and cheese plate with fruit and bread, and a Margherita Pizza. We really liked everything but we were stuffed so we decided to go walk it off at Stanley Park.
