They now have Vancouver’s first soft shell crab burger. I’ve tried it and it’s INCREDIBLE.
Our Executive Chef Aaron has yet another surprise in store for the Vancouver Food Industry. As of today, 49th Parallel and sub-brand Lucky’s Doughnuts are officially releasing the Soft Shell Crab Burger; first of its kind in the city.
The soft crab shell is a crab who has shed it’s shell and has not been able to grow one back before getting caught, which means it can be eaten without any worries. Combined with the perfect ingredients, this flavourful burger is one of a kind.
Tucked under fresh buns spread with kimchi mayo, a citrus and peanut slaw covers the fried soft shell crab generously. This delicacy is topped with fresh scallions and coriander, adding a refreshing kick to the whole tasting experience. There are two versions of this burger available and they both go for $12. Available at our Thurlow Cafe, everyday till 2pm.
If crustaceans ain’t your thing, they’ve also got a new drink on the menu; The Sicilian Latte. Espresso, cardamom syrup and house-made almond milk.
I tried this too – it’s sweet but not too sweet and the cardamom taste is definitely subtle. As always, their almond milk is awesome, even for someone like me that is fairly uninterested in anything other than Oat Milk these days!
