I haven't done an out of town post in a little while, but I was up in Vancouver on vacation with Lisa and Noam a few weeks back. My lil' cousin Daniel was having his Bar Mitzvah in Seattle, and we thought we'd make a trip out of it. All we did the whole time in Vancouver was eat, drink, and hike around. It was great. Here are some of the highlight spots from the food perspective.

Location: 788 Denman St., Vancouver
Cost: About $15 per person

Right after Lisa and Noam picked me up from the airport, we went over to Kintaro to try some ramen. There's not much to say except that the broth was rich, the meat was plentiful, the noodles had a nice texture, and the restaurant had no AC. Within minutes, between the spicy, hot soup and the 90 degree restaurant we had a good schvitz going.

Location: 530 Robson St., Vancouver
Cost: About $10 per person

On day two, someone (I don't remember who and don't want to put the blame on anyone in particular) suggested we try out Japadog. The premise is easy and obvious, hot dogs with a Japanese twist. I came in very excited and absolutely hated it. Across the board on our three dogs, I found the flavors to be off putting.

Beard Papa's
Location: 548 Robson St., Vancouver
Cost: Less than $5

Luckily there was a Beard Papa's right next door to Japadog so that we could get the taste from our previous debacle out of our mouths. The cream puffs there were tasty with a sweet filling and hard chocolate shell across the top.

Jang Mo Jib
Location: 1575 Robson St., Vancouver
Cost: About $25 per person

 For one of our last dinners, we hit up this Korean restaurant, Jang Mo Jib right down the road from our hotel.We were the only white people there, which I took to be a very good sign. Our order was simple with some bulgogi, bi bim bop, potstickers of sorts, and the typical variety of Korean pickled side dishes. Everything was delicious, and the table favorite was clearly the bulgogi.

  7. About the Breitling Watches band, it is brown, not black or grey. It is made of genuine calf leather, soft and durable. The Breitling really shows the improvement of watch-making technology.It uses brushing and polishing, every corner is polished well and gives a very angular feeling. The Fake Breitling Watches” lettering is deeply engraved.In a word, from outside case to inner mechanism, the Replica Breitling?is good a high end replica that will be perfectly suitable for men who need a timer in formal occasions. By the way, the Louis Vuiton Handbags is also available.
