When my friend Adrian texted me a couple days ago asking if I wanted to come along with him to the Jay-Z & Kanye West concert, I thought I had died and gone to heaven! I was near tears because I really wanted to see this show but at the time didn’t have the moola for these expensive tickets.
After one of the best concerts I’ve been to – it was almost midnight and we were both starving. We were trying to figure out where we could go for some late night grub that wasn’t McDonalds or Burger King, so I suggested we head over to Yaletown.
Adrian had mentioned a place called Hub, which is located right across the Canadaline station. It was chilly so we were both crossing our fingers that they were still open – and they were!
We were seated immediately and since we were both starving and the place was going to be closing in 40 minutes – we ordered right away.
Adrian went for the Crab Mac n’Cheese with a side salad. The description on the menu was “gruyere, parmesan and aged cheddar”. I had a bite and you can definitely taste the gruyere’s creaminess and interesting taste. They used the corkscrew macaroni rather than the elbow kind. I like the corkscrew macaroni better because I think it locks in the flavour better. The only complaint I heard from Adrian was, “Wheres the crab?”.
I ordered the Classic Burger with a side salad. I like the shredded lettuce used, the bun was soft and didn’t become soggy with the sauce. I also liked the fact the sauce was situated in the middle of the burger rather than oozing out of the entire thing. My only gripe was the patty – it was skinny and a bit over done (ie, crispy).
The service was great, they came to check on us several times and to refill our glasses – even though we were one of their lasts customers of the night. We were in a bit of a rush to leave because we wanted to catch the last train home – the bill came quickly and we settled and left.
Thanks again Adrian for an awesome night!!!
