Our last wine spot was Salt Tasting Bar and my God this was so worth it. Salt is classy and at the same time busy and very social. You don’t need to dress up fancy for wine and Salt does an excellent job to give you the wine experience in Vancouver. Getting to Salt however was a sketchy trip into Blood Alley at 9:30pm. I wouldn’t think that Salt would be nestled away from the main streets of Gastown. My friends and I got there late so our booked table was given away but luckily we had a seat at the bar so that wasn’t so bad.
Keeping it classy and creative, here’s the deal at Salt. They have a massive blackboard of the menu for you to pick three from the cheese and meats column then three condiments. As for the wines, you can choose what wines you want to pair your selection with or leave it all to the servers to figure out your taste buds. I would highly recommend having a server help you out just for an extra excitement.
Since we weren’t so familiar with our wines, the server surprised us with her choices. I’m not even going to bother explaining the wines since I don’t even know what in the world she gave us other than it’s white, red and an exotic taste fusion.
For our cheese and meets, we chose the applewood cheddar and the server suggested the spicy capicola and bison with sage. I’m not too sure what the condiments were but one of them was pipparras peppers. According to my friends, the server’s choices were excellent.
