We’re fortunate enough to break out of our West End bubble to dine out at a selection of eateries, hotels, and fine restaurants throughout the year. In 2012, we enjoyed cuisine from British Columbia, Washington State, and the lush farming island of Maui, Hawaii.

I’m still dreaming of the crab cake from Tulalip and a risotto we had at Cin Cin during the Vancouver International Film Festival. The croque madame from Yolk’s Breakfast, our hearty tofu and spicy pork from Donburi Ya, ramen from Kintaro, oysters in Seattle, pretzels from MARKET’s Oktoberfest, and much more.
Get outside of your comfort zone, try new flavours, support growers and farmers, and enjoy the best local ingredients that are offered. Close to home or far away, I’m looking forward to tasting more delectable bites in 2013.
