When I was in high school, Milestones was where all the cool people hosted their birthday parties. At the time, I only knew of the location on No. 3 Road in Richmond.
This year, Milestones celebrates their 25th year, a story of great food that begin right here in Vancouver on Denman Street. Now, they boast over 40 locations all across Canada. What an accomplishment!
As a starter, we picked a Spinach and Artichoke Dip with Tortilla Chips. This was a HUGE portion, even shared between two. At some point I had to tell my hand to stop reaching for the chips or I wouldn’t have any stomach to eat my entrée!
My choice of entrée was the Cajun Seafood Fettucini, minus the spicy Cajun part. Although it didn’t look like a big portion, pasta is always filling (all them carbs.. yum). I definitely appreciated the healthy serving of seafood (some places skimp out), and I’m not sure if it was the spinach & artichoke dip, but I had to pack some of this home to enjoy another day.
The mojito is always my go-to drink, and I’m happy to report this Raspberry Mojito was perfectly minty and refreshing. Next time, I’m going to try their Watermelon Mojito!
K’s choice of entree was the Portobello Mushroom Chicken, with basil, roasted garlic cream sauce, vermicelli noodles, and seasonal vegetables. Colourful dishes always make me happy.
His choice of drink was the Milestones Original Bellini, complete with a little giraffe perched on top. I love this little detail – it adds just a bit of whimsy to put a smile on your face as you sip away.
As much as I enjoy Vancouver’s unique dining spots and hole-in-the-walls, Milestones will always be a great option for a night out.
