Vancouver, Canada – day four

We walked back down to the Yaletown district. It was a little cool and cloudy so we bundled up. At least it wasn’t raining anymore.

Our plan was to eat at Blue Water for lunch. Blue Water is supposed to be one of the best seafood/sushi restaurants in town. This was our 2nd attempt at eating there. Turns out the site (Open Table) we were using for the hours was not up to date and they were not open for lunch on this day. As we were standing outside of the famous restaurant, we took it as a sign that we were not supposed to eat at Blue Water.

Instead we ate at Minami, which is basically a sister restaurant to Miku, where we ate 2 nights ago. Minami was just as great as Miku and offered the same high quality sushi and locally sourced salmon.

To get a birds eye of the city we headed to the Top of Vancouver revolving restaurant. We only had drinks there but the views were spectacular! Hubby had the Stanley Park Noble Pilsner and I had the Stanley Park 1897 Amber Ale both brewed by Stanley Park Brewery. Beers were okay but the experience was worth it.

Next up was the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden. It was serene, tranquil, and nice to see in such a big city.

We walked to the Vancouver Olympic Village that was built for the 2010 Winter Olympics. It’s a nice upscale area with cute restaurants and bars. We were meeting one of my hubby’s friends from high school at a place named Craft Beer Market. It was a beautiful restaurant with a nice selection of locally brewed beers. We shared some appetizers and downed some suds.

Hubby drank the Storm Brewing Black Plague Stout and very much liked it. I had the Howe Sound Three Beavers Imperial Red Ale which was quite tasty. All and all it was a very nice bar and very nice day!

That night we spent time down in the Gastown neighborhood. It’s was a lively and exciting area.
