Dine Out Vancouver 2018: Notch8 Restaurant

I’ve actually never heard of Notch8 Restaurant before and the first time was when I was picking out a Dine Out Vancouver menu this year.  The way they named their dishes was very endearing to me, plus they had grilled octopus on the menu!  So Notch8 became my second Dine Out Vancouver restaurant and C-Dizzle […]

As we were quickly told by the extremely attentive server, […]
