… but if you’re from Canada, you read that as “oot and aboot.” What I Ate Wednesday takes a bit of a twist today as I have a variety of random photos of foods I ate in Vancouver! They were taken throughout the weekend and all were more than delicious so let’s dig in!
Spinach and Feta quiche from Cafe Villaggio. This adorable and always bustling cafe was a block away from me, which was dangerously close after I tried this quiche. It was warm and the feta was perfectly complimentary to the spinach and the pastry crust melted in my mouth. Heaven.
I tried Chipolte for the first time ever. Lots of Americans talk about how much they love it and how wonderful it is and how it makes every single dream come true… which probably means I had too high of expectations for what is essentially a fast food joint, but I was totally underwhelmed. It wasn’t great. I had the burrito bowl with brown rice and sofritas.
The smoothie that looks like health in a cup, but tastes like a creamsicle. I was in heaven. I added a scoop of Vega vanilla protein to the SMAK “Vitamin G” smoothie which had spinach, orange, and avocado blended with ice and almond milk. Maybe this was the key to my success in the half marathon the next day.
Let’s get this straight. I am NOT an egg salad girl. I associate egg salad with food born illnesses and old people but I was looking for a vegetarian dinner at like 8pm one night in Vancouver and grabbed an egg salad wrap from Urban Fare. OH-EM-GEE. It was really good. It was probably SO unhealthy for me but I savoured every bite and pretended the eggs were giving me all the protein I needed in a weekend full of carbs.
Finally, a scoop of coffee and a scoop of dark chocolate gelato from D’Oro Gelato to top off my post-race indulgence on Sunday. I ate it while slowly wandering down Robson Street and then towards the harbour, taking in my final night in the gorgeous city. It was DEE-LICIOUS and exactly what my soul needed after a hard-fought race.
Traveling is the perfect opportunity to try new foods and new places to eat. While I have been to Vancouver before, there are SO MANY new and old places to dine so it’s fun trying them. I was lucky to travel alone in the sense that I ate when, where, and what I want. I had no one to please but myself. 🙂
Gelato, froyo, or ice cream?
Has anyone had good experiences with Chipolte?
