I am basically a food tourist. When I go to new places, I go armed with a meticulously researched list of restaurants, bakeries, food kiosks, and maybe even vending machines I want to visit. Some of the them I will undoubtedly feel I must visit. Thankfully, Jeff is with me on this. We travel to eat new food, or, at least, that's how it seems most of the time. Of course, when we're in a place like the Netherlands, where the food is sorely lacking most of the time, we find other things to do, but I think we're both happiest when we're eating at an insanely good restaurant in a new city after a day of walking 50 kilometres or so to see all of the sights we can pack into one day.
The thing is, our life in Vancouver is not so different from this. I map neighbourhoods by getting to know eateries. In fact, today we visited two different cities (outside of Vancouver) and hit up two amazing places to eat. My mom has noticed that this is what we do. I can't help it! You know what's in the omelette? Grana padano cheese, sour cream, maple syrup and blueberries! Doesn't that sound amazing? And look at those doughnuts! Also amazing!
So, if you're ever coming to Vancouver and need some restaurant recommendations let me know, I'll definitely be able to hook you up. What are the best restaurants in your town or the best restaurants you've visited elsewhere? You know, just in case I'm planning any travels this spring...
Another photo of me in sunglasses. That's my mom with me on this insanely windy pier. And the Lion's Gate Bridge and Stanley Park in the background. What a beautiful day!
