The best breakfast of the week. If you’re in downtown Vancouver anytime of day, MedinaCafe is just awesome. Along with a crazy good menu, it’s also ‘cool’, whilst completely unpretentious. Seeing as I looked like I’d been in a convention center for the last six days it was nice of them to let me in amongst all the trendy folk.
Monday night we hit Gio’s family restaurant, Q4 Al Centro. I couldn’t decide between the Tenderloin and the family-recipe Spaghetti; so they gave me both, or course. Amazing food, wine, desserts, service and ambiance. An all round perfect Italian; and if you go – I totally recommend the Spaghetti – it’s crazy good.
Saturday night I hit Vij’s with Raj. Damn, what a great place, one of the nicest, most original indian meals I’ve ever eaten, but still with a strong sense of authenticity. The restaurant does not take reservations and a 2.5 hour wait is usual; we wandered off to review a couple of local pubs and work on our appetite. If you get chance to visit this place on your travels to Vancouver, it’s worth it.
