This one is for when you’ve made last minute plans for people to come over for dinner, or even for yourself on an evening when you fancy something sweet but don’t fancy the effort. It’s a formula that will work time and time again.
On this day, we took on The Grind.
Over a third of Vancouver’s population is East Asian and as a result the vast majority of restaurants in the city are Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese and Korean cuisine. It’s basically heaven for anyone who loves their noodles/rice/sushi and of course like Q and I… dumplings!
Well. After 8 years of Q and I talking about how much we’d love to visit Vancouver, we’ve finally gone and done it! I cannot believe I’m actually here and writing this post from our sky high apartment in the heart of the city. Fast cars are zooming by below and the sun is shining on the mountains in the distance. Mountains as the backdrop for a city, what an absolute dream!
It’s been battle of The Swans recently on the blog! I’ve been doing something of a tour around the pubs in my local area with reviews; it’s actually made me appreciate just how many incredible pubs there are in my corner of the world. Good British grub is one of my favourite genres of food… I feel it’s good for the soul, y’know? There’s something intensely comforting and familiar about it (who doesn’t feel warm and fuzzy after a lovely roast?) and yes, whilst I’m one of those people who will happily guzzle gravy all year round, we can all agree that rich meats and starches taste all the better when darkness begins to creep in, like it’s beginning to now. *sigh*
