South Surrey's Tap Restaurant among Surrey offering local menus in September

A 34 Avenue eatery is among seven Surrey restaurants pledging to go local in September.

Tap Restaurant is participating in the city’s Dine Out, Eat Local campaign, in which participating restaurants will offer a special dinner menu with dishes comprising at least two-thirds locally-farmed ingredients.

On Tuesdays throughout September, Tap Restaurant will offer a single $30 prix fixe menu: roasted parsnip soup, fried sage, Beast & Brine bacon as appetizer; Donia Farms beef bourguignon, glazed radish, carrot, potato, fresh herbs as main; and organic egg pavlova, macerated berries, lavender and honey pastry cream as dessert.

Surrey is home to more than 475 farms, accounting for one-third of Surrey’s land base, according to the city.
