After our outing at Virtuous Pie, the five of us still had a hankering for a bit of meat—err, food. Well, meat for the boys. So we turned around the corner (HOW CONVENIENT) to pay Juke a visit.
Kebin was back in town for a few precious weeks, so we had to stuff in a few foodie dates. Kebin is also a big meat-eater, so we had to be a bit… sneaky about taking him here. To Virtuous Pie. A vegan pizza place. Heh… heh… heh…
Mell and Grace hit up Vancouver’s best ramen joints with their crew. First stop: Taishoken.
We’d both been to Calabash before and loved their vibe, especially their live music sessions happening on the lower level. But we’ve never had their brunch. And Mell’s never tried the famous Dark ‘n’ Stormy that Grace never shuts up about. It’s time to get what we came for. Even though it’s only 10:30am.
How is this our first time at Wildebeest? God, we must be amateurs or something. It’s in this sexy refurbished 19th century building on West Hastings that nurtures farm-to-table practices, all local. Sooo yeah, count us in on that mentality.
Last Adult Table dinner before we jet off to Europe. 🙁 Better make it a good one. Following our recent Asian theme, we yielded to our sushi cravings at Minami, sister restaurant (literally sisters, as the two restaurants are named after the owner’s daughters) of the equally renowned Miku Restaurant.
Mell, Grace, Adam, and Dimplings go classy-drinking at Prohibition Bar. Back to the 20s we go…
Mell and Grace EAT MEAT and Mell regrets nothing.
Mell and Grace try like, the best devilled eggs ever—and get transported back to their childhoods by a popular potato dish.
Mell introduces Grace to the best pasta of her life at Ask for Luigi. Grace returns the favour with bone marrow and escargots—perfect for any adventurous vegetarian.
