September is always a busy month for me. It’s my busiest month at work, coupled with the fact with the fact that dragon boat is almost ending and hockey is just beginning, I just haven’t had a lot of time to post. It’s not that I haven’t been eating, or making meals, it’s just that I haven’t been all that inspired to write about my experiences. I wanted to kick-start myself, and when I read about a cool concept restaurant in Yaletown, I booked a meal out because I knew that no matter what, it would be blog-worthy,
100 Days is dubbed as Food + Art remixed. A unique collaboration of graffiti art and innovative cuisine. That’s about as much as I read and I was sold. Unlike most food experiences that I encounter, I did not over research because I wanted to “experience”. A Friday in Yaletown, which in it of itself is a unique experience for the parking-phobic Ben.
Maybe I didn’t read up enough about this, but I thought that this place would have more of a rotating menu, that didn’t seem like it’s the case. There were a lot of fun things to choose from though.
We chose the Tuna Tartare to start, more because the server sold me on it. Not bad, but I think I should have gone with a salad.
Maybe I’m being hard on 100 Days but I did go in with some expectations. I really did want to enjoy the experience of a rare Friday night out in Yaletown. The place was packed though, and it looked like some people were enjoying their time there. Service was a bit slow, and we were each comped a glass of wine because we were made to wait a while for our meals to be served. Ben pointed out that they noticed that I was out with my big camera and knew I was probably going to write about my experience. Sorry though, 1 free glass of wine was not enough to buy better feelings about my experience. It also doesn’t do a lot to convince me that I shouldn’t research my meals more throughly either.
100 Days ends on Dec 31st where this space at the Opus Hotel will be converted into a new restaurant. Until then, I’m sure a lot of wannabees will enjoy a mediocre meal here. Too harsh? Blame it on September Susy, who doesn’t have time for B.S.
