Vancouver Eats

I recently went on a trip to Victoria and Vancouver for about a week. Here are some memorable foods from the trip.

1. Peaceful Garden Restaurant had great lamb cumin noodles. Their noodles are freshly made and cut right before cooking. I'm normally not a big fan of lamb, but I really enjoyed it.

2. Honey's Cafe in Deep Cove. Besides being beautiful and a great place to kayak, Deep Cove holds a secret treasure. Donuts. Go to the cafe and order one. They only have one kind, but to compensate, your donut is warm, soft, and delicious. Mmmm.

3. Last but certainly not least is Jimmy's Fruit Bar in the Lonsdale Quay. Being in business for a number of years, Jimmy has invented quite a variety of tasty and healthy drinks. My favorite while we stayed there was a drink called "Mr. Green Lifesaver." It's a delightful combination of mint, kale, spinach, pear, and mango, among other things. Tasty and refreshing. I'd highly recommend stopping by this friendly place for a great drink or two.
