Vancouver day two and whistler
So! Day one may have been a rented tramp around town, think we covered 20km or so in flip flops but ate very well and saw a lot of sights, day two was much more based around the SOs list of places to visit so eating was moulded around this.
Breakfast at Abigail's party was a good start, short rib with spinach, egg and hollandaise was tasty, although could have done with more, maybe something to do with the previous nights imbibing! From there on to 49th parallel for coffee, not as good as revolver by any means, but a piccolo latte was still just short enough to retain the flavour, the accompanying almond croissant very good.
After a trip to Lynn canyon a stop on the north shore at sushi bella followed, a bento and mixed sashimi were ordered and enjoyed, very good tuna I thought, certainly compared to my uk experiences,, oh and the tempura prawns to kick things off were juicy, crispy and tasty.
Following grouse mountain dinner was required, however due to previous days walking a venture around too far was not possible, so we opted for some local feed on west broadway, Nuba obliged and delivered some serviceable Lebanese, the lamb dishes were a highlight.
Monday morning kicked off with croissant from baguette and co and sollys bagels on west broadway, both enjoyable enough and set me up for the day, the croissant a little doughy to what I expected following recommendations from hosts.
Off to whistler. Lunch at brackendale, a river view joint to see some eagles, other didn't show but the meal ok. Dinner was at creekbread (thanks to meghany for previous post) a tasty salad with local goat cheese and sock eye, all good. The pizza, half half, was tasty, with really nice chewy base, toppings were sausage and the special, more sock eye, the latter winning, very good.
Breakfast at gone bakery served up a good breakfast burrito and was very tasty banana/blueberry muffin, set us up a treat for a morning up the mountain. Lunch at south side diner was as expected, good honest fair of burger and chocolate shake, assisted by beach volley ball on tv!
Thanks to all I read and 'borrowed' from in my research. I am back now off to enjoy the view from the train window on route to Seattle, posts on that to follow!
