The same evening, seeing as it was our 2nd wedding anniversary, we visited the Oakwood Canadian Bistro in Kitsilano for dinner. These guys make everything (including bread, sauces, pasta etc) from scratch in the kitchen and source everything from within 100km of Vancouver. I had the Dungeness Crab tortellini with burnt butter sauce (delicious) and Sandi had the pork belly, which was cooked properly and just fell apart without the need for a knife. But the star of the show was dessert. The "Nanaimo custard" was in fact a delicious egg custard made with milk from Nanaimo (a town on Vancouver Island) inside a Mason jar, and on top was a ganache with pecans and coconut thread. So yum.
