I’ve got roughly four days before I leave for Toronto – four days, but a lot of food to cover.

These are the things I have to eat before I go…

  1. You’re going to be very full, but oh so happy. But please, have an extra beef roll at the Peaceful Restaurant for me, and an extra Beta5 chocolate for dessert!

    I wish I could’ve gotten into Bella Gelateria when I was there, but there were about 50 people lined up outside the door! So, to console myself I went next door to Giovane and had a great cappuccino and a slice of almond chocolate mousse cake.

    I clearly have a lot more dining adventures left to do in Vancouver!

  2. If you want company, I’m in! The porchetta, the tacos, the gelato, and the burger are all doable in an afternoon, with minimal driving/walking between them.

  3. All of these sound fab, I guess I need to put Vancouver on my bucket list of places to visit!

    I am, however visiting Toronto in March. Are there some ‘must try these’ recommendations whilst there? #nomnom

  4. And here you were worried about getting Lulu and Bubba down to flying weight… but who’s gonna keep you at flying weight eh!?

    And Geez! Thanks so much, eh! First you mention Gelato… then Gary mentioned almond chocolate mousse cake and cappuccino .

    Now Ive got pains in my side too ( from hunger pains!) and it looks like I’m going to have to make the 80 minute long road trip to Mazzarro’s in ST Pete first thing tomorrow to satisfy my cravings!

    And here I thought i’d be relaxing and getting some work done from home this wknd! Gee! Thanx a lot!!

  5. I know you’re not thrilled about moving…but I am thrilled for you because it means more Dark Matter!!!

  6. As if I haven’t eaten enough already today, you have gone and made me hungry again. Now I’m going to have to go into the kitchen and find something else to eat, since the day is a total loss anyway.

  7. Looks like I still have some restaurants and/or food trucks to visit! I haven’t been to Sura, Snow Peaks, Le Tigre, or Meat & Bread yet. Maybe this trip? I booked my flight to Vancouver today (arriving October 26th), so maybe I’ll get a shot at trying some of these then.

    Then later that week I’ll be in Calgary, and the following week it’ll be Toronto, Montreal, Waterloo, and Ottawa, but that schedule is taking a little longer to settle out.

    Speaking of food, you mentioned you’re preparing Turducken for Canadian Thanksgiving; so what are you planning for desserts?

    And how did the X-Ray go? Any prognosis? Hopefully all good.

  8. That all looks so good. The porchetta sandwich sounds especially enticing.

    If you can stand one more comment about middle-aged frailties, I will say that Paul is absolutely right. I’m 47 and have injured myself doing the most mundane things. A few weeks ago, I threw out my back after giving my young kids a bath. It took several days to recover. I’ve also suffered severe neck strain simply from sleeping the wrong way. From the comments on your blog, it seems that I’m in good company!

  9. Pace yourself. And pack a lunchbag with a freezer-pack to keep the leftovers fresh for the plane ride. Because seriously, do you really want to eat AIRLINE “FOOD”..?!!

  10. Enjoy your food trek! The Sushi, burger, sandwich, ice cream and chocolate look delicious. What about your cupcake shop?

  11. Joe, you’re making me hungry.
    and making me remember the great time we had at Minami.

    and I’m bookmarking this so I can go visit all these places.
    I’m especially keen to try Meat and Bread.

  12. Hello! Uh, Turducken for Thanksgiving? Makes perfect sense… except for the fact that if some of the establishments noted are open on Thanksgiving, you could get to those got-to-get-to-eating establishments. Hmmm. I hope you have enough time to comfortably accomplish your goals. And in some cases enough buds to help you with things such as the porchetta sandwich.
    Will the chocolates travel safely as the confections they are? If so perhaps they could accompany you to Toronto. [Just a thought.]

  13. Beautiful! I was just thinking the other day if you would have any comments regarding the food places in YVR. There are some you mentioned that i would like to give a try, like Fable, and other places to revisit like Wildabeast! My mother just came back from a trip to Peru/Easter Island. The food she said was fabulous. The French toast was like 3/4 inches think and the Hamburger was hough and the best she ever had.
    Most sorry to hear about the Apartment. Perhaps you should have had Ivon or one to others do a run through with a “police camera” and live stream the place. Most disappointing to hear how something of this importance was to be so lacking.
