First thing we did upon arriving in Vancouver was go to Granville Island. 
Stopped at the big farmer's market they have there and bought some produce for the room, like knobby little carrots. 
No parking is enforced by ninja.
There was an awesome sushi place about a block from the hotel. We ate there about five times.
Beth has an aversion to cilantro and coriander so that pretty much kills Indian food for her and pretty much us. (Except for Gulab Jamun) But there is still takeout. Here I'm having tandoori trout.
By the way when you finish with your fish remember to flush it down the appropriate drain.

Aw, I LOVE Vancouver! One of my favourite cities for sure. Do you remember what the sushi place was called?

I grew up in Victoria, across Juan de Fuca Strait, and have family in Vancouver. Beautiful doesn't even BEGIN to describe it!

Can't wait for more photos.

: ) P

Thanks for sharing some of Vancouver with us. That picture of you with the fish is so funny.

I have to agree with Beth on the Indian food. I have an aversion to it too. I'm a wimp with alot of food choices. The only sushi I can eat is the one with imitation crab.

Looking forward to seeing the rest of your journey.

which Vancouver? BC or WA state?


and if you're so close, why not come down, or up, to Tacoma. we've got the Glass Art museum...

yeah, i hear toronto rocks too :D

vancouver sushi is apparently the best in canada. i know more than one person whose taste for toronto and montreal's attempts has been ruined by it.

glad you're back.

Man I need to go live there, where everything is enforced by ninjas and fish live in the sewers!!!

i'm allergic to cilantro (tastes like soap and makes my throat itchy!) but i don't let that stop me where indian food is concerned; since i can't get it in restaurants without cilantro (coriander seed doesn't seem to bother me at all; just the green leafy growth) i hunkered down and learned to cook it myself. i am proud to say that i now make a better butter chicken than i've ever had at an indian restaurant! not to mention a generous handful of other dishes. it's not as hard as it seems - there's just a buttload of ingredients so the recipes look pretty intimidating.

next time you're in texas, come over for some authentic indian; me & beth can eat it sans cilantro and yours will be chock full :)

hey jorge.. not sure what else you did in vancouver, i live about 8-9 hours north of vancouver.. love the city.. did you ever get over to stanley park/aquarium while you were there? How about capilano bridge (that's in north vancouver, look up capilano bridge on the internet), if you ever go to vancouver again go to those places it's so awesome. At the park there's alot of artists who sit there and draw, paint, and there's carriage rides that go around the park.. and there's also tourist buses too, there's also alot of statues and totum poles to look at.

No wise cracks about Canada. Vancouver is not part of Canada so I don't care what you say about 'it'. By the way, that was the boniest trout I have ever seen.

Hey man, next time you're "home" on Oahu, you should come get some Indian with my husband and me! Its our FAVORITE food, and we've found a couple decent hole-in-the-wall type places in the city :)

AllBlueZoo said...

Tasha Who? said...

Wow... I thought my mom and I were the only people who thought cilantro tastes like soap!

We're both thinking about heading to Vancouver for a vacation next year... funny that the sushi shot sold me!
