[ 在一片漆黑中的晚餐 ]
在伸手不見五指的餐廳裡吃飯這個餐廳的 idea 其實在許多大城市 (London, LA, Paris, New York 等)已經有，只不過一直沒有機會嘗試，這次好友特別安排我們到溫哥華的 Dark Table 餐廳用晚餐，真的是超級有趣的經驗！在完全沒有光的環境裡，人真的會感覺到脆弱！因為你會聽到周遭有很多聲音，可能是有人在交談，也有可能是有人在移動什麼，但是就算你的眼睛是開的，你還是…
[ 重返溫哥華 Dine Out 世界 ]
這次在溫哥華非常短暫的停留，好友 arrange 我們到一間贏了很多獎的餐廳用晚餐。 這間位在 Rosewood Hotel Georgia (溫哥華市中心) 的 Hawkworth 餐廳，除了氣氛好外（平日進去都是西裝客)，這間餐廳的主廚們都是有獎項加持. 這間以 contemporary cuisine (現代創意料理) 為主的餐廳，一進去…

[ 在飛機上突然醒來, 奇怪, 我要去哪? ]
I woke up on the airplane and was confused. From home to the airport, passed through immigration, security check, to VIP room, boarded the aircraft, watched a few films.. everything was on auto-pilot mode and did not require a brain cell. But the destination… (continue reading…)
從家裡到機場, 過海關, 過安檢, 到貴賓室, 搭上飛機. 睡了幾覺, 看了幾部電影, 幾片短片. 一切就像自動包裝機的產線, 不須一絲腦細胞地照著流程走.但今天的目的地不是熟悉的台北, 廈門, 東京, 大阪, 倫敦, 法蘭克福或洛杉磯.
[ 來份法式下午茶吧 ]
“Old World Charm” is the key phrase for this place. My last day in Vancouver was a busy day and went to lots of places (big thanks to Jenn! :D). The first stop of the day is brunch at Faubourg Paris Coffee Shop in Kerrisdale. This classy with… (continue reading..)
最後一天的早午餐到了在 Kerrisdale 的 Faubourg Coffee Shop, 這間 Coffee Shop 看起來帶點古典 + 法式的浪漫, 不過裡面的空間真的是有點緊, 星期六的一早裡面就擠滿了人, 無論是外場的甜點區, 或是裡面圍出來的下午茶預定….
