A sweet treat at the Hamilton Street Grill

Is it wrong to have a blog entry about food and not have a picture of it? My excuse is that I almost never photograph the things I eat and besides, it was really dark in the restaurant… Anyway, I’m here to tell you about a delectable dessert at the Hamilton Street Grill in Yaletown, and hopefully have you drooling over the description rather than a picture.

For weeks a good friend of mine had been highly recommending I try the warm gingerbread pudding at the Hamilton Street Grill, as it was one of her favourite foods in all of Vancouver. I was treated to the experience as a belated birthday present, and oh was it good! It’s a moist bread pudding that is dark and sort of chocolatey looking, with a subtle gingery flavour. The pudding is accompanied by a small dish of killer caramel sauce, and one scoop each of both ginger and pumpkin gelato. The flavours mix well together and the gelato is an nice counterpoint to the super sweetness of the caramel. Definately make sure you have something to drink with this because it’s a very rich treat.

    Chocoatl, The Flower Lady, and now this. I should just follow you around.

    Either that, or live in Yaletown.

    Somehow I knew you’d like the sound of this.

    I don’t live in Yaletown, I just visit it occasionally. Very occasionally…

    Gingerbread Pudding! I never thought I’d see those 2 words put together but apparently you can. Daydreams of sweet surrender are playing in my head. I wish I could fly to Vancouver right now just to have a taste of it!
