Foodie weekend

31 Mar

Chill Winston @ 3 Alexandra Street, Vancouver (Corner)

  • Truffled potatoes
  • Wild Mushroom risotto
  • Tuna Tartare – amazing!!
  • Baby back ribs / ribs – oooh so tender
  • Dark chocolate truffles – $6 – fresh and perfect w/wine
  • Room is dark, rich and beautiful. So nice that out party spent 4 and a half hours there!

    Nu – for brunch. Jazz brunch with Juno nominated singer, Melody Diachun.

  • Brie and Black Truffle Omelette – sold out!
  • Pear Brioche – with syrup and creme fraiche on the side
  • Guyere cheese soup – decadent!
  • Pomme frites w/truffle oil
  • Coffee – no orange juice
  • Come here on a beautiful and clear Sunday and you’ll get the best of Vancouver’s water views. Stayed here for 3 hours – no rush. Opentable.com gets you automatic reservations. Definitely will try the heated and glass enclosed patio with unlimited water views come warmer weather. My new fave must-go-to-place for weekend brunch.

    Happy Birthday to me…

    You may be feeling pretty sensitized as a series of planetary aspects take hold and bring an increase to the demands on your time. You may not mind as Pisces is often generous with their time. You may feel a little stretched though and you may have to communicate your feelings about it to others from March 14 to 20.
