So I felt like a bright lunch would be a great way to go so I had planned for us to go to the new Banana Leaf that just opened up on Robson.

I ordered the appetizer platter as my lunch and I was pretty pleased! I love love love options and this dish came with the Papaya and Pineapple Salad, Chicken Satay, Spring Rolls, Roti Canai and Calamari.

Finger food, check. Sauces, check. Flavor, check! The roti canai was stretchy but with a crispy crust, the calamari was a tad dry, but acceptable with a salty and crumbly crispy coating, the spring rolls were deep fried goodness and while the satay could have been punchier with the flavor, it was still not bad! As for the salad, the dressing was bright, sweet, acidic, and overall was fresh!

Robert, on the other hand, was very disappointed with his curry dish. Being well traveled and also being from LA he’d know!  He said it was bland and forgettable and he even left a scathing comment card! Yikes!

unicorn island - fruit farm

Our last stop on Unicorn island was at the fruit farm. We had a spread of Mangosteen, Papaya, Mango, Pineapple and some sort of Citrus fruit. Served with the fruit was a plate of salt.
 

I prefered the fruit sans salt, and while I’m not a huge exotic fruit fan, I was really happy to finally be able to try mangosteen and it was delish!!!
