Zach, a close friend from high school came to visit this past weekend and we had a lot of fun putzing around Vancouver. We did a lot of grilling, and made some fish tacos. Started by marinating some red snapper in canola oil, lime juice, garlic, onion, and parsley. Then we grilled those filets and heated up some corn tortillas in some foil, and grilled some corn on the side.
Z & I went to Shabusen for their all you can eat sushi lunch special. Pictured below are some BC rolls, cucumber rolls, salmon rolls, and prawn tempura rolls. Not pictured: Tofu agedashi (regular & spicy), gomae, beef teriyaki (for Zach), gyoza (for Zach), sashimi, miso soup, spicy tuna cones, and some nigiri.
We made our way to English Bay & then back down to the downtown core, where we stopped at Beard Papa’s and picked up a cream puff.
We also picked up some pretzel buns from the Swiss Bakery which are heavensent. I had some sauteed greens and dolmas for supper along with the pretzel bun.
Zach used his pretzel bun as a bun for his chicken smokie cooked over the grill, YUM!
The next morning we had some cantaloupe for breakfast
That evening for supper we went to Moderne Burger. Really simple menu, but done SO WELL! I started off with a creamsicle shake
Overall I had an amazing time with Zach. I am so-so-so happy he came to visit! Already my house feels pretty lonely & I miss making meals with him & adventuring around Vancouver.
