We started off the morning with breakfast. Lido has the best bolo bao (菠蘿包) AKA pineapple buns — WITH BUTTER.
Then we drove about an hour+ to Squamish to hike the Stawamus Chief.
The Stawamus Chief is a granite dome located adjacent to the town of Squamish, British Columbia. It towers over 700 m (2,297 ft) above the waters of nearby Howe Sound. It is often claimed to be the “second largest granite monolith in the world”. (Wiki)
It was a strenuous hike, but the view was amazing. The water was a color I had never seen before. These pictures can’t capture the beauty that only exists in my memory now.
Famished, we went to Guu with Garlic for some Japanese tapas:
We sat at the bar where we could see everything they were making.
Ramune soda brings back childhood memories.
Miso black cod
They make the best eggplant ever.
Grownup’s melon soda float. (alcoholic)
Richmond Night Market! (They only run in the summertime on weekends) We were lucky to have picked a hotel that was right across the street. So many vendors, so much food!
So. Much. Food.
