Buffalo Breaded Shrimp Cajun Caesar Wrap from Leopold's Tavern

Happy Thursday! Fueled by the spiritual renewal of the Lord's Supper Mass, we decided to extend our date night with a delicious dinner at Leopold's Tavern. The Vancouver Canucks game flickered on the screens, adding a touch of excitement to the atmosphere.

With a spirit of meatless observation, I opted for the vegetarian nachos. This mountain of goodness offered a symphony of textures and flavours. Crispy chips, melted cheese, a vibrant pico de gallo, and crisp onions formed a delicious base. Pickled jalapenos added a touch of heat, while peppers and olives offered pops of colour and briny complexity. A dollop of guacamole provided a creamy counterpoint, and the accompanying salsa and sour cream were perfect for dipping adventures. Every bite was an explosion of flavour and texture, making these nachos a true vegetarian delight.

Meanwhile, my husband, a dedicated carnivore, reveled in the Cajun Caesar wrap. This flavor bomb featured buffalo breaded shrimp – a crispy and satisfying protein element. Romaine lettuce, juicy tomatoes, and melty mozzarella cheese added freshness and richness. Onions, parmesan cheese, and a creamy creole Caesar dressing tied everything together, creating a familiar and exciting flavour profile.

As we cheered alongside the Canucks, it was a perfect way to unwind and reconnect before the weekend arrived. Leopold's Tavern provided the ideal setting for a date night filled with good food, good company, and a touch of sports excitement.
