Vancouver weekend report

pants | Sep 10, 200712:52 PM     14

Went to Vancouver for the weekend - it was about eating, drinking and shopping!

Friday night - Hapa Izakaya, still one of my favorites! The only problem was the removal of my favorite menu item, Hapa Tofu, a delightfully light dish of tofu, chicken,green onion, cherry tomatoes in a dressing, mixed up all together - I was thinking about it on the plane and everything! Very sad - oh well, everything else was delicious as always!!

Saturday - Breakfast -crepes at my favorite neighbourhood spot(former neighbourhood). I can't remember the name but it's on Jervis between robson and alberni across from the palisades hotel.
Afternoon snack - fries w/curry sauce and beer at the irish heather. for some reason, the beer just tastes better there.
Dinner - Parkside - again another great experience! They had an Italian inspired menu this past weekend, everyone's meal was fantastic and we had the last bottle of a beautiful Italian wine - I meant to write it down but forgot...I hate when I do that!
Post Dinner drinks - Salt, great spot! A little sketchy to get to, but worth it. Cool space (to cool for vancouver, we all felt like we were in another city), interesting beers and of course beautiful cheeses and meats - the guiness mustard was out of this world.

Sunday - Breakfast - my favorite spot - Fiddlehead Joe's - on the patio in the sun with halibut and crab cake benny - delicious!
Lunch/Dinner - Cardero's - love their patio! Salmon burger, that's my usual order there, with a bottle of Blue Mountain Pinot Gris, the sun and the boats and the mountains - sunday afternoons don't get much better than that!

a very good weekend!
