Polenta cake with sancha ice cream + Umi "cannoli" at Hapa Umi. Cannoli was pretty messy to eat. Cake wins!
Super Butter Pretz. Injecting more butter into a classic makes it an instant new favourite.
Al Bap: Korean stonebowl rice with fish roe, minced pickled dikon, and nori. Add chili paste, let sizzle, consume.
Finally, BC Okanagan cherries! The record-breakingly cold weather delayed all summer fruits this year. Going to eat as much as possible while they last.
To cleanse my palate from the stilton aftertaste from the sandwich, I had a scoop of coconut water gelato at Bella Gelateria.
Simple breakfast meeting at The Outpost Cafe, a quaint little spot in East Vancouver. Poached eggs, fruit, and excellent buttered baguette.
Cheers to our ladies' night out at Tapenade Bistro with some Blue Mountain Brut.
Delectable housemade charcuterie platter at Tapenade Bistro in Steveston, Richmond. The chicken liver pâté was my favourite.
I'm not typically a fan of Japanese chocolates but Meiji's Earl Grey chocolate is quite nice. Subtle tea flavour, smooth chocolate, more novel than anything.
Xiao Long Bao (steamed soup dumplings) at Dinesty in Richmond. These are delicate, 1 biters with flavourful broth and thin wrapping. The rest of the meal was lacking, unfortunately. I don't get the hype at all.
