Day Trip from Seattle to Vancouver

As a model an actor I have spend a lot of time in Vancouver for business and travel. I live in Seattle, which is a great city, but sometimes I want to go to a city with the feel of an international city, so I cross the border into Canada to visit Vancouver. The people in Vancouver are kind, beautiful, diverse, and awesome in every way. It’s only a three hour drive to the middle of the city, and I keep my trip simple to get there and back in one day. On this trip I had coffee at Nemesis in Gastown, breakfast at Forage on Robson Street, went for a run through Stanley Park, and grabbed dinner at a Japanese restaurant, Kingyo, just down the street from where I had breakfast.

FARM-TO-TABLE BREAKFAST AT FORAGE ON ROBSON STREET

I knew I was going to run in the afternoon and I don’t like to run on a completely empty stomach. However, I was also trying to eat very cleanly. I chose to have breakfast at Forage on Robson Street, where the restaurant prepares its menu from sustainable sources. I like to support restaurants that source their food from local producers and I also like the idea of farm-to-table restaurants. I just think the food tastes better and is better for the environment and helps smaller farmers and ranchers, all that good stuff. As I said, I was trying to eat clean, so I ordered something simple. I chose to have two farm eggs and toast and bacon. The toast was excellent, by the way. If I wanted to splurge on something more adventurous, they have great options like Two Rivers turkey sausage hash, or brioche French toast with rhubarb purée, or a double-fried pork cutlet sandwich, all of which sound like miracles I will try another day
