“Wanna get lucky?”… before you get the wrong idea, I’m talking about Lucky’s Doughnuts.
Sundays tend to be errand days for us and this rare non-rainy March day was no different. Throw in a run to Costco and Sophie needing to visit the dog park; it wasn’t until almost 2:30pm before we managed to get something to eat (I’m not counting the quick hot dog at Costco).

Inside the Granville Island Public Market is a shop that serves roast meats, sandwiches, and carries specialty infused olive oils and vinegars on tap. I’ve admired some of their hot savory foods before but have never tried them out. Since we had just had a seafood fest at the Sandbar, I just grabbed some sweets to bring home.

I know that there are a lot of places to eat at Granville Island but one of our default go-to places is the Sandbar. Run under the same banner that manages The Teahouse, Cardero’s, and Seasons in the Park, they know how to put together a good plate of food and all have beautiful locations… perfect for a date.
The highest spot in Vancouver is Queen Elizabeth Park located in an area appropriately called Little Mountain. It’s actually named for Queen Eliabeth II’s mother, the Queen Mother (not to be confused with Queen Elizabeth I) and is a popular tourist spot due to the expansive views of the city and their famous sunken gardens.

Over the years, we’ve become a fan of the fruity offerings of Edible Arranagements. Aside from the high sugar content, it would seem to be a healthier choice when compared to a large box of chocolates and tastier than a flower arrangement. Read the rest of this entry
Although we like the Thai House, we haven’t been back to this particular location for a long time. In fact, this was the first Thai restaurant that we’ve ever tried (all the way back in the late 80′s). If you’ve ever been to the Thai House, you know that they have a fairly extensive menu. I remember being surprised on our first visit when the waiter knew each dish by number and took the orders at our table all by memory and got it all right (and we had a big group of people with us).

February was Food Truck Fest at Vancouver Farmers Market and I dropped by on the last Saturday. As it turned out, the day was pleasantly sunny (but still bitterly cold). My sights today was to visit Yolk’s and try out some of their wares.
