Drop Anchor In Paradise With Our New Signature Cocktail

June 15, 2018

It’s official, The Rise Eatery is one year old! And what better way to celebrate a year of culinary exploration than with a signature cocktail that once again sails beyond the boundaries of our craft?

On those tough days when you’re craving an escape from the bustle of the city you can make your fantasy a reality with your first sip of the Castaway. Just in time for summer, we’ve set out to channel the serenity of soaking up sun on a secluded island in a cocktail.

The Castaway is a tribute to all things tropical. Coconut rum provides the sweet and boozy base of this cocktail while Bitterhouse Daman brings a balancing grapefruit tartness to the mix. A squeeze of lime brightens up this deep blue abyss and to bring out just a hint of the salty ocean we add a dose of olive brine. A natural mix of butterfly pea flower lends the Castaway its beautiful ocean blue color. We then layer the lapping waves with a shake of pineapple foam, and finally crown it with a house-pickled pineapple skewer. We couldn’t resist including a juicy treat before diving into this luxurious tropical escape.

The aroma of an island campfire greets you as your cocktail arrives on a torched plank, and it looks as though you’re not alone in your tropical seclusion. Each Castaway comes with its very own message in a bottle. What will yours say? Tag us on Instagram and Facebook to let us know!

Escape to your very own island retreat in the heart of South Granville and join us in celebrating our first birthday with the Castaway.

Treat Mom to a Momosa this weekend

May 10, 2018

No one works harder than Mom. And to give her a break we’ve designed a cocktail especially for her. Exclusively available this Mother’s Day weekend is The Momosa.

At the base of the cocktail is a new favourite of ours, Bitterhouse Daman. This craft aperitif (distilled in British Columbia) adds it's bittersweet grapefruit flavour to the mix. This libation wouldn’t live up to its name without sparkling wine, so we top it off with brut Cava.  

Our thanks go to Davids Tea for their Strawberry Rhubarb Parfait tea. Simmering this bright and fruity blend brings forth aromas of wild berries. Once chilled, we combine a generous pour with a splash of fresh lemon juice to enhance the mix of grapefruit and Cava. And, of course, each Momosa is garnished with a  heart-shaped orange twist.

Crisp bubbles and ripe summer flavours make this cocktail perfect for toasting to Mom. Celebrate her day in style this weekend at The Rise Eatery.

Pendulum Mag - Something Different

Apr 29, 2018

When someone tells us it's going to be something different, we are usually skeptical - is it really going to be that unique?

It was brunch time on a sunny Saturday when we stepped into the airy restaurant space. While sunny, it wasn't exactly patio weather yet, so we opted to sit indoors by the window. Owner and Director of Operations Wanda Lai introduced us to their menu, and several items in the 'Something Different' section caught our eye. - Florence Leung, Pendulum Magazine Editor in Chief

Taste the Cardinal Sin on our patio this spring

Apr 28, 2018

Spring is in full bloom and summer is fast approaching. With that said, let us suggest a cocktail we created with the new and improved weather in mind, the Cardinal Sin.

The cocktail’s name is a nod to Matt Cardinal, the bartender to write the recipe here at the Rise. The ingredients pay homage to a few family traditions at his childhood home in Ontario.

The primary inspiration for this drink is homemade strawberry-rhubarb pie. Their family recipe made use of fresh strawberries and rhubarb grown in their backyard garden. To incorporate those flavours into a cocktail Matt brewed a strong batch of strawberry rhubarb tea (by Davids Tea) and added sugar to create a syrup thats tastes less like tea and more like dessert.

The second source of inspiration for this drink is the base spirit. At the Cardinal house, celebrations call for tequila. Although they make their own wine and enjoy everything from rye to sambuca, a summer night under the stars is never complete without a toast with tequila shots (with lime and salt, of course).

To make a Cardinal Sin we shake Espolon tequila with our strawberry-rhubarb tea concentrate, lime juice and lots of ice before straining the mixture into a coupe glass with a salt rim. The Cardinal sin, served straight up, is a sweet combination of flavours that screams summer.

With brighter, warmer weather upon us, it's time to bring family and friends together for a cocktail on our cozy, newly re-opened patio.

Geisha-Rita, a Rise original

Apr 13, 2018

This week we present a house cocktail that’s been a staple on our drinks list since day one at the Rise, the Geisha-Rita. Given it’s unique presentation and taste, the Geisha-Rita has staked its claim as a guest favourite in our dining room. If it isn’t our top-selling beverage, it is definitely the most-instagrammed.

Lychee liqueur and sake are shaken vigorously with ice before a loose strain provides a frosty alcoholic base to this new classic. The mixture is then topped with Fentimans rose lemonade to bring the sparkle to this effervescent and floral concoction. Finally, a crescent rim of togarashi adds both heat and color.

Every classic cocktail needs a signature garnish and The Geisha Rita is no exception. We finish this potion off by adding a fresh lychee that’s skewered with a Pocky stick, a dose of sweetness to begin or end your cocktail experience.

A tribute to our Asian influences,  both traditional and modern, the Geisha-Rita is the liquid incarnation of our culture here at The Rise Eatery.

This Vancouver eatery serves Ferris wheels of hors d'oeuvres

Apr 6, 2018

Step right up to the magical foodie carnival! Well, it may not be an actual fair, but it’s got a pretty playful presentation.

The Rise Eatery’s one-year anniversary is approaching, and while this South Granville spot specializes in contemporary Asian fusion cuisine, it has garnered attention for one dish in particular on its menu – the Wheel of Nosh.

New Craft Cocktail for Spring - Bee Sting

Apr 5, 2018

The Bee Sting is one of several new additions to our cocktail menu for Spring. Like so much of our menu at The Rise, it’s a carefully crafted balance of bold flavours. What makes the Bee Sting unique is the competition between spice and sweetness on the tongue. Limoncello, Honey and a dash of lemon juice provide the sweetness necessary to tame the tingling heat at the base of the cocktail, Sons of Vancouver Chili Vodka.

There’s simply no alternative to Sons of Vancouver Chili Vodka. Distilled in “really really small batches” in North Vancouver, the spirit packs a punch of 180,000 Scoville units, leaving lasting, flavourful warmth on the palate between sips.

After shaking and a fine strain, this martini is garnished with a gorgeous freeze-dried honey chunk that, when dipped in the glass, can add just a bit more sweetness to soothe the chili’s sting.

A Bee Sting glows like honey under bar lights and is sure to spice up any occasion at the Rise.

温哥华港湾 - 温哥华的南格兰湖区最新食馆 玩味温哥华之最

Oct 4, 2017

The Rise Eatery的餐单设计颇花心思,有别于一般的头盘、主菜、甜品等分类,这里以Opening Acts、Sensibles、Principles、Supporting Acts、Finale来分类,有如艺术表演的起承转合一样,来逗引你把他们的菜式样样试来。
  细看餐单上每款菜式的配搭,可以窥见大厨的厨艺思路和脉络。加拿大标榜多元文化,而大厨的构思正也是饮食多元文化的缩影,可以说,那都是globally-inspired dish的组合。所以,菜名、食材配搭和餐单设计一样充满了玩味,诸如Seoul Good、Heart Attack、Neer and Far等,那全是谐音"食字"的玩意。- 艾力斯

Sometimes, there’s nowhere to go but up. For the Vancouver catering vets of Danz Gorumet, that notion brought them to their first restaurant project, and also its name. Taking a cue not only from their own culinary trajectory to expand their business, but also the street upon which its located, The Rise Eatery is a promising new spot for fun and affordable eats in posh South Granville. - Lindsay William-Ross, Daily Hive Food Editor
