As predicted, we were up before the sun! Abe and I split two bars on the plane ride up
VERY impressed with your airport, Vancouver…
…and beautiful skyline as well!
This is actually our second trip to the city – we came to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary back in April 2008.
But that was before I started blogging, so this time I was very focused on finding authentically Vancouver-ish cuisine. One of my twitter friends suggested Japadog, which originated here:
They’ve got a few outdoor stands
We went to the storefront on Robson
It’s tiny, but at least you get to sit (and there’s a bathroom to wash your hands)
The menu was overwhelming…
…I just ordered what the sign on the counter told me to:
Both Abe and I got our dogs “Terimayo” style – teriyaki sauce, seaweed, Japanese mayo, and fried onions
Also a bag of Curry fries to share
There’s all kinds of toppings you can add to your dog
I chose cornichons, pickled veggies, and 3 different sauces – BBQ, sweet chili, and Honey Mustard
Plus some heavenly wasabi mayo
Yummers. SUPER yummers.
The Kurobuta Pork had the PERFECT snap to it. Juicy, tender, and flavorful inside. (Abe loved his veggie version, but did not report a similar tasting experience.)
So glad I got to try this place! I mentioned looking forward to eating here in Harold and Kumar 3 screening, and I’m pleased it didn’t disappoint.
Walked around to digest a bit.
Here’s where my movie Surrogate Valentine will be playing tomorrow night!
So exhausted. Between being up since 6am, traveling, and that Japadog, I need a nap!!!
