I’m absolutely blown away, considering that I started my blog in mere April and am up against some big names. This would never happen without you! xoxo
It’s plain to see that I adore Vancouver but have dodged from writing about its restaurants. That’s because my passion lies in cooking so I leave the shop-talk to other dedicated bloggers. A list of my favorites are at the end of this post.
Even so, I understand why people take interest in what I eat from day to day. After all…
If you are curious about where and what I eat, please follow me on Twitter (GourmetFury) for the live-feed of my dining (mis)adventures.
In order to share my most memorable moments, I’ve created a Travel category with the various destinations listed. After sorting through my snapshots, I’ll periodically relate my experiences here.
Absinthe at Jules
A random stroll around cobble-paved Gastown led to a late evening spent sipping on delectable absinthe at Jules, a quaint French bistro.
I’m an avid wine lover. I’m also what many call a “double fister”, a term I find utterly appalling in contrast to the beauty of simultaneously sipping a cocktail alongside du vin. (ok, so it’s not always this refined… )
So naturally, I asked for a glass of wine to accompany the absinthe. Our delightful host, Michael, warned that once the aromatic elixir pervades the palate, all other tastes will be distinguished.
I ordered one regardless out of curiosity (although I’ve been called belligerent more than a handful of times… just this week alone).
He was right. The viridescent distillate conquered my senses and rendered all competition futile.
Mystique aside, absinthe is a truly artful drink; from its preparation, to the moment the herbs permeate the senses, to the conversation it stimulates, enjoying absinthe is a distinct experience.
It is no surprise that the Green Faerie never lost her allure after the repeated waves of prohibition.
