The Storm Crow Alehouse

I am sitting here, watching “Jellies” on Netflix, (literally just music with jelly fish floating around for background noise- but it is SOOOOO pretty!) and thinking back to my falafel wrap that I ate at Storm Crow Alehouse last week with Scott and his parents.

Seriously, best falafel wrap I’ve ever had, and I can’t stop craving it. Also, this jelly music is getting me pumped up. Yeah huh.

So about a year ago Scott and I had some friends come to visit for a few days. During this time we walked around exploring as much as we could. We went to the aquarium, walked the seawall, searched for X-Files filming locations, and ate lots of food. One place we were so excited to go was the Storm Crow Tavern. Needless to say, it was a total letdown. Yes it was an amazing place to look around in, with tons of nerd memorabilia, but the service was horrible, the food lacking, and not worth the money.

A few months ago, it’s sister restaurant, the Storm Crow Alehouse, opened up near where we live. I have been dying to check it out since it opened, and finally had the opportunity when Scott’s parents were visiting!

I’m going to apologize now for the photos. It was quite dark in there with awful lighting. But I still wanted to include as many photos as I could!

This place was awesome! There wasn’t as much memorabilia lining the walls as the other restaurant, but this one had incredible service, a very laid back atmosphere, still plenty to look at, tons of games, and delicious food!

Not only did we had Lord of the Rings art beside us, the women’s washroom was a Tardis door! Any Dr.Who fan will appreciate that!

Can someone tell me what the men’s washroom door is? I have no clue, but it looks fun!

There was a whole wall filled with board games to play! We ended up playing jenga. And guess what? I didn’t lose for once!

Can we just admire Scott’s drink?! You can’t really tell, but it had dry ice in it, so it was smoking all over the place. So cool!

I recently just watched all the Child’s play movies, so I loved seeing Chucky there!

There were so many vegetarian options available, which I loved! I ended up going with the yam fries and falafel wrap. SO DELICIOUS! Must.Eat.Again….NOW!

I ended up getting a raspberry crumble for dessert, and Scott’s dad got the bread pudding. It was HUGE and unlike any bread pudding I’ve ever seen. I had a bite, but didn’t love it. But I know most people would!

We then ended the night with some Daleck Yahtzee and then I headed home and they all went back to the hotel. I was stuffed, but had such a great evening!

If you ever want to go to a nerd bar/restaurant in Vancouver that has tons of fun games to play and delicious food, I would definitely recommend the Storm Crow Alehouse!

Do you love nerd stuff like this? Would you come here?
