Bone Marrow

Okay, yes I've been watching Anthony Bourdain on overload, but I realized I still haven't tried this! Anyone know where they serve this - roasted marrow bones - in Vancouver?

  1. I'm thinking Cioppino's, Il Giardino, etc. for osso buco.

    1. I've seen marrow on the menu for Greedy Pig. It's a big part of why I'm dying to go eat there. Mmmm...

        Nic: Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!! That is definitely my next lunch spot!!! When we were in NY, I had 2 restaurants planned that I was going to try this, but we never got to one, and the other we ended up at breakfast! I am SO going to the Greedy Pig!

        P.S. for anyone interested, the full version of Anthony Bourdain's - No Reservations - Vancouver on YouTube is now available! Bourdain is a "god", to me at least! :-)

          maybe we should make it a chowdown place :)

        2. Not sure about roasted ? but I know Fuel has Bone Marrow on their menu.

            Oops. I missed the roasted part. I say make it yourself! Toast points or crusty bread and marrow...yummmmm....

              Wow, I just cancelled my Xmas lunch at Fuel. I did not see it on the menu or I might have kept it! Maybe they don't serve it at lunch, I didn't look at the dinner menu...

                I'm in for Greedy Pig for next Van chowdown. Nearly went there after Circle Craft and really need to check it out soon.

                        I went here. There's lots of great No Reservations episodes.


            2. We are having our office party at the Greedy Pig this year - I'll let you know how the marrow and toast goes down ;)

                I swung by the Greedy Pig last night for a few Guinness (they only have it in can).. and a few bites to share. Had the cheese / charcuterie plate - comes with two cheeses and three meats for $18, pickled quail eggs - $3, and roasted bone marrow bones - 3 on plate for $16. Everything was really good. First time for bone marrow so not too sure how to compare it, but it was great. I guess bone marow is bone marrow !! Scoop out the jelly-like goodness and smear it on bread with a sprinking of salt, a few bits of German bacon .. nice ! Also the quail eggs were fantastic - great little snack with beer !! Can't go wrong at $3 !
                They don't have a full kitchen - but the chef was also pumping out some good looking sandwiches and other small plates.

                  Glad to see the love for the Greedy Pig. The few times I've been there, the food has been solid and service is wonderful. There's a great vibe in there that takes me away from my usual Kerrisdale/UBC/Kits routine.
