The eye-popping bar served gorgeous and delicious signature cocktails we slurped down.

Passing beyond the tempting bar was the main dining area; Intimate seats for date night cushioned with soft pillows. The restaurant also has three private dining rooms and a dining room that allows for three or more persons. Our view while being able to enjoy our cocktail made our insides feel cozy.

Vancouver is the best place for those transitioning into a healthier plant-based diet. The Market’s Menu caters to all type of eaters: vegan, vegetarian, and of course for the standard, meat eater. Their menu changes three times throughout the day and depending on the week; it may be a different dish!

Being tempted walking past that bar got us thirsty. We started off with drinks – I had the Market Gimlet with Sheringham seaside gin, market lime, and kelp cordial. Mary had the Black Rose with Sons of Vancouver black truffle infused vodka, the market rose and strawberry infusion, blue mountain brut. Truffle. In a drink.

Every table served with house bread and butter.

Mary ordered the Lacquered Pork Belly for an appetizer; made with onion confit and honey ginger which she liked, especially the honey ginger sauce. It was a unique pairing but very tasty!

Next appetizer, we had the Ahi Tuna Tartare with soy ginger dressing and aromatic chili oil. Okay, before moving on, this was legitimately our favorite dish from our Vancouver trip.

We did a side order of the Black Truffle Mashed Potatoes. Mary loves anything with Truffle and had to try this – which tasted incredible.

For the Entrée, I had the Roasted Chicken with Meyer lemon, parsnip, and spiced hazelnuts. A small size, beautiful delay but filling result! Beautiful and just the healthy amount of it!

Mary went with the Crunchy Halibut with glazed mushrooms, green chili, and mint. She’s been on a fish craving during our Vancouver trip and this halibut with the mushroom along with the potatoes was perfect for her. Although, she would’ve loved it more if it was a singe more crispy.

Apart from the food obviously was that the Restaurant was inside the hotel. We say this often, but when a hotel offers great food at their local restaurant, it’s an affirming reason to revisit. Shangri-La doesn’t fail. Many luxury stays cater bland and boring tasting food and as fate would have it, Market by Jean Georges is beyond any expectations you may have for fine dining.
