Trip to Vancouver
August 21, 2013 § 1 Comment
Our trip to Vancouver (very late. . .) with cousins L. and Z.. We began at the Amtrak station a little to early in the morningso we got coffee. The little cafe inside the train station was decorated very nicly. While we were waiting for our drinks it an old man came in and gave the barista and the lady at the front desk a rose; it was easy to tell they had gotten to know the regulars! (Either that or he was a player ajusshi , heh ; ) The train coming into the station!The train ride was lovely, but of course train is my favorite form of transportation.
Arriving we were picked up by a limo service (except we were picked up in one of those big huge vans that all the Kpop idols drive around in. With tinted windows.) and the driver gave us a tour of the city and then of Stanley Park before dropping us at the Teahouse in Stanley Park where we had lunch.

The restaurant had a very pretty bar. . . . . .unfortunately the majority of the group (including myself) was not allowed at the very pretty bar. The room we were allowed in–Not my drink! Me and L.!Ily and Z. They were making a face in every photo, heh. Thats okay though, their true personality comes through : )Some of my food–the presentation was gorgeous and the tuna was amazing. When Z. discovered that the cocktail sauce basically tasted like ketchup he used it for left over fries. The only part of this lunch that was not in photos was the bee. It liked Ily but she was not a fan of it.
We stayed at Times Square Suites Hotel.
Bubble tea that evening! from BUBBLE WORLD. This was the second time I have had bubble tea so I don’t have much authority to critique the place, but Ily and I shared the Passionfruit Green with bubbles and we both thought it was very good. I liked that the green tea was not overpowered by the passionfruit.

The bar– (Why are the bars the most fun to take pictures of?)and the hummus plate. The hummus was delicious ( a little on the salty side, I was drinking a lot of water that night!) and I liked the drizzled olive oil with paprika on it.
Our last lunch, which we had at the Westin Hotel.
- 1601 Bayshore Drive
- Vancouver, British ColumbiaI really liked this meal, but the “lemon brûlée,” as they called it, really confused me. What was I supposed to do with half a burnt lemon?
Ily made fun of me for taking more pictures of food than of people on the trip, but I was just so excited to have a camera that really made food look good!
