Stanley Park & Lemon Pie

IMG_2813

What a weekend! Samuel and I had an amazing time in Vancouver, but wow is it good to be home. The best thing about our little getaways is that it makes me more appreciative about the abundant blessings I do have. Do you feel the same way? It seems no matter the length of time there’s always a piece of me that’s homesick. I’m such a homebody!

The morning after Valentine’s Day, Samuel had reservations for breakfast and boy was it delicious!

TUC KITCHEN

WHAT WE ORDERED: I ordered the Irish stew breakfast. It was a beef/lamb stew served in a personal size cast iron skillet with potatoes and veggies. Samuel had the typical potato and eggs breakfast with some fried pork belly on the side.

RATING: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Food was amazing and atmosphere was rustic and relaxing.

Afterwards we took a bike ride around Stanley park. I loved seeing the totem poles! It was sunny that day yet very brisk, so we had to layer up. The ride was lovely and it made me excited for spring to arrive so we can go on more bike rides at home.

For our last night we splurged and went to Seasons at the Park for a nice prime rib and salmon dinner.

SEASONS AT THE PARK

WHAT WE ORDERED: crab-stuffed salmon for me and the prime rib special for Sam. We ended the meal with the best lemon pie ever!

RATING: ⭐️⭐️⭐️
The view is what gives this place most of its pizazz. The food was decent and the dessert was my favorite part.

Foodie Adventures in Vancouver, BC

IMG_2745
Who’s feeling the love? My tummies feeling the love. My husband sure knows how to make this woman happy. We are on a foodie adventure in Vancouver, BC. We’ve experienced some delicious cuisine so far and we are not done yet! Samuel has two reservations for us tomorrow and I can’t wait. Today was the official Valentine’s Day and we celebrated with Whole Food smoothies and Theo chocolate. It was simple and perfect. Tomorrow our adventure will continue, but I wanted to first share some foodie pictures with you before I fall asleep.

BESTIE

WHAT WE ORDERED: naturally the currywurst (I got mine with mayo and green onion added)

RATING: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Music was a bit louder than most restaurants I’ve been to, but food was delicious and the feel of the place was fun/quirky.

NERO

WHAT WE ORDERED: I got the liege (soft & sweet) fruity waffle & Sam ordered the crunchy chocolate mousse waffle. We went here for breakfast and I wouldn’t recommend it early in the morning (beware: upset stomach), however coming here for dessert would be an excellent idea. It’s a busy, small place with limited seating so act quick when a spot becomes available!

RATING: ⭐️⭐️⭐️
I’m not a fan of waffles or sweets for breakfast, but it’s still worth a try!

MEAT AND BREAD

WHAT WE ORDERED: we both ordered the special, which was the teriyaki beef sandwich with sake mayo, scallion daikon and toasted sesame. The last time we were here we ordered the porchetta and it was killer!

RATING: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Love me a good sandwich.
