Dinner at Richmond Station

I’ve been wanting to go to Richmond Station (www.richmondstation.ca) for a while and it was well worth the wait! From the Pantry we had, the Bulgogie Steak Tartare to start as our first dish, then the Smoked Trout Hushpuppies came along. The Tartare was great and I wanted more once it was done. The Wonton…

Terroni
