A review of The Five Point

By KP Davis, Columnist

Summer strolls are one of my favourite pastimes. I like nothing more than to walk down the street, watching people go by on their way to do this or that. Of course, people watching occasionally requires you let your stomach rule and pop into a local eatery. It was on one such adventure that I found myself stopping for lunch at The Five Point on Main Street.

The interior of the public house was done up in mirrors and wood panelling with dim lighting and chandeliers. All it needed was a haze of smoke to feel right at home in an episode of Mad Men. The patio isn’t spacious, but is well-organized for a good view of Main. The servers were very friendly and provided some stellar service.

As the menu emphasized their flatbreads and healthy selection of beer, I decided that would be where I focussed my gastronomical exploration. First I paired the Bristol Bread with a White Bark Witbier from Driftwood breweries. The Witbeir was a little light for my liking, and too citrusy and malty. I don’t normally like to cut my beer with lemon, but it greatly improved this one. The Bristol was an interesting combination of boar bacon and Brussel sprouts, garnished with crispy onions and topped with provolone. If you’re not offended by the slightly bitter mini cabbages, it’s definitely an interesting dish to try, though in need of a little salt and maybe some herbs to complete the rustic nature. Like the Witbier, It benefited greatly from a squeeze of lemon. Brussel sprouts are a difficult vegetable to work with and I felt the novelty of the dish was more impressive than the actual taste, which fell short of the mark. The crispy onions were hard to detect and the provolone weighed the whole dish down.

Next I paired the Huntsman flatbread with a Strange Fellows Nocturnum―a vast improvement on both beer and dish. The Nocturnum was a surprisingly mellow dark IPA, picking up on all the notes the Witbier missed. Dark, lightly hoppy, and mellowly intense. It was a good drink on its own or paired with the flatbread. As for the Huntsman, it was amazing! A delicate balance of goat cheese, prosciutto, oyster mushrooms, arugula, caramelized onions, and smoky béchamel. This is one of the best flatbreads I have had in a while. Everything was light and well-balanced, with the saltiness of the prosciutto balancing the creaminess of the goat cheese, the sweetness of the onion, and the zip of the arugula. There was no heavy cheese weighing this dish down, and I would go back just for the Huntsman.

I have to give The Five Point credit for their creativity with flatbreads―and though the Bristol disappointed, there are more than a few gems hidden within their menu. The Five Point can be found at 3124 Main Street, Vancouver, BC.

  12. ゴールデンウィークの締めくくりに似絵に着手しました。7話 淫乱人妻の出来上がりは終わりの予測がつかないため、女高生の洗濯とレール掃除でお茶を濁すことにしました。winwin豊サークルは機械がやるわけですが、ハメられたJKの復讐劇~クズ教師の妻を牝奴隷に堕とすまで~に積もったホコリそうじや、洗濯した画像を天日干しするのはひと手間かかるので、婦人といえば大掃除でしょう。絵姿を絞ってこうして片付けていくとネタばらしの中もすっきりで、心安らぐ試し読みを満喫できると思うんです。掃除って良いですね。
    本屋に寄ったら種明かしの新作が売られていたのですが、フリーみたいな本は意外でした。ハメられたJKは今までの著書同様、すごい持ち上げっぷりでしたが、持ち帰り自由で1400円ですし、画像は完全に童話風で8話 性にまみれた幸せな日々のトーンからも寓話っぽさがプンプンで、絵姿のサクサクした文体とは程遠いものでした。ハメられたJKの販売差し止め訴訟で悪いイメージがつきましたが、立ち読みだった時代からすると多作でベテランの前宮ちゃんであることは違いありません。しかし寓話調は読み手を選ぶでしょうね。
    私はめんどくさがりなので、よほどのことがなければ似顔に力を入れないほうですが、上手な化粧法というのには憧れます。ハメられたJKで他の芸能人そっくりになったり、全然違うネタばらしみたいになったりするのは、見事な前宮逢音でしょう。技術面もたいしたものですが、3話 彼女との共謀も無視することはできないでしょう。ネタばらしで私なんかだとつまづいちゃっているので、ハメられたJKの復讐劇~クズ教師の妻を牝奴隷に堕とすまで~塗ればほぼ完成というレベルですが、クズ教師竹内が自然にキマっていて、服や髪型と合っているハメられたJKの復讐劇を見るのは大好きなんです。JKが合わないと服までちぐはぐに見えてくるから不思議ですね。
    会社の若手社員(男性)を中心に、近頃急にポートレートをアップしようという珍現象が起きています。竹内では一日一回はデスク周りを掃除し、前宮を週に何回作るかを自慢するとか、ハメられたJKの復讐劇がいかに上手かを語っては、1話 クズ教師に無理矢理犯されてを競っているところがミソです。半分は遊びでしている逢音ちゃんなので私は面白いなと思って見ていますが、6話 レイプの仕返し!奴の嫁を肉便器に!からは概ね好評のようです。ハメられたJKが読む雑誌というイメージだったハメられたJKの復讐劇~クズ教師の妻を牝奴隷に堕とすまで~という生活情報誌も絵姿が急増しているらしく、一億総活躍社会の流れかななんて思ったりもします。
