High Tea, Ramen
This weekend our adventures took us to the Fairmont Vancouver downtown for high tea. My Mom had taken me here before so I thought Amy would enjoy it. Actually, we'd originally planned on going to the one at Sutton Place Hotel but that was booked full, and we discovered that the Fairmont had "walk-ins" so... we walked in. We chose our teas and then they brought us a nice two-tiered display of bite-sized sandwiches and delicious scones. Ooh those scones. Yummy. Afterwards we went for a nice stroll in Stanley Park. We couldn't decide on dinner (Kintaro again?) until we walked by a "new" ramen place on Denman called Motomachi Shokudo. It was a small little place. I had an "extra BBQ Pork" ramen which meant pork ribs were included, while Amy had some sort of a bamboo-based ramen. Delicious soup and ramen for me (Amy thought the ramen wasn't chewy enough) but not much in the way of meat. Still it was a good time.
