This post is all about the delicious, yummy stuff I at while in Vancouver. If you missed the previous post about what I did/like to do in the city click here. As I mentioned in the previous post the bf and I discovered several places we love to eat when he lived there. We went back to each and every one of these and added a few new ones to our list.
|And how could I go all the way to Vancouver and not visit the famous Cupcakes store! There are a few in the city stocked with yummy cupcakes. My faves are red velvet and anything with coconut icing YUM!! Have you ever seen their TV show on the W network?|
I saved the best for last!!!
If you're in the mood for a really nice dinner check out Chambar. Chamber is a Belgian restaurant owned and operated by Chef Nico Schuermans. It is my favourite restaurant ... period! I have tried to find something comparable to it here in Toronto but so far no luck. The atmosphere is great - dimly lit with red walls and great music. The food is to die for! The Le Camping desert (pictured below) is probably the best desert I have ever had.
A great spot for brunch is Cafe Medina. It has the same owners and chef as Chambar (go figure) and is located next door to Chambar. We went there for the first time on this trip and it was soooo good! I am such a brunch person and the Belgian brunch I had there was so different from anything I have ever had before. They have the most delicious Belgian waffles served with toppings like milk chocolate lavender and white chocolate pistachio rosewater. We had one with dark chocolate and a second with salted caramel and they were sooo good that they disappeared before I could get a photo. The lavender latte I had was also yummy. To say I was in heaven is an understatement. I really wish that Cafe Medina was located in Toronto :(
