My Vancouver: Gastown Food Tour, tasty goodness for the eyes

Taste Vancouver Food Tours provides an excursion through one of Vancouver’s oldest neighbourhoods with nuggets of history and morsels of food. Over 2.5 hours in Gastown, we make the following stops (see list below) where there’s enough food in total to fill a person up, but there are individual standouts where we wanted more.

  1. Starbucks – Waterfront Station
  2. SteamWorks Brew Pub – website
  3. Brioche Urban Eatery – website
  4. 131 Water Kitchen & Bar – website
  5. Peckinpah – website
  6. Bao Down Gastown – website, see also my 1-picture post
  7. Soft Peaks – website
  8. Trees Organic Gastown – website
  9. Canadian Maple Delights (Délices Érable & Cie) – website
  10. Roger’s Chocolates – website

I’ll let the following pictures do the talking and describing, but my 3 favourites are the Bao Chicka Bao Bao sandwich at Bao Down, the Sicilian tortellini at 131 Water, and the pulled pork sandwich at Peckinpah.

Regensburg: Wurstkuchl, historic sausage kitchen

It must be midday, and time for lunch. There’s a queue more than twenty deep for the takeaway- or takeout-counter, as people walk away with a long thin grilled sausage sitting snug in an undersized oval bun. Next to the Döner, I’m also fond of the “Bratwurst”, or grilled pork sausage.

Along the Danube promenade in Regenburg’s Old Town is the historical sausage kitchen, formally “Die Historische Wurstkuchl zu Regensburg”, better known as “Wurstkuchl”. The Wurstkuchl is known as the oldest running grilled-sausage stand in the world, with the presence of a stand serving food to labourers from town and visitors from the river since the 12th-century.

Eat Like A Bahamian: 4 Ways to Get Conched

I’m basking in the Bahamian sun, collecting rays and passing time on the warm white sand.

It’s not long before I’m learning how to eat like a Bahamian. I’m craving for conch, peas and rice, and cold Kalik beer.

Featured: Steamed chicken rice, condiments, omelette with scallions. Chin Chin Eating House, Singapore – 2 July 2012.

After spending the entire month of June (2012) in Hong Kong, I visited Singapore, New Zealand, and Australia between July and September in continuation of the year-long around-the-world trip. I continued finding food, and it hasn’t stopped me from wanting more. With the following taken with a 4th-generation iPod Touch: come, look, salivate.
