Beachisde Forno, 1362 Marine Drive, West Vancouver. Michael found out about this place browsing around Google and we decided to take a chance. The exterior of the restaurant was very West Coast, with its beach ambiance right by the water, attracting customers with warm yellow light blooming through its windows.
For starters, Michael and I had the caramelized onion and chicken soup, with onion flan and crispy cheese. The soup itself was a little bit salty, which didn't really bother me. It tasted like the traditional French onion soup without the soggy croutons and mounds of cheese. I didn't realize there was crispy cheese after reading the menu, when I ate the crispy cheese it tasted like crispy air and I loved it. It was my favourite part of the soup. Michael thought the soup could use some more cheese and the flan seemed a little undercooked.

Michael and I tried to look for more Dine Out deals this weekend, but sadly there were no suitable dinner times. We were originally planning to go to a bar lounge restaurant that a fabulous aunt of mine took me to during my late teen years, and I'd like to give a big shout out to her, hello!
