Just off the plane in Sydney for the first time, my good friend Lauren picked me up from the airport and took me here for “brekkie”…what they call breakfast in Australia. The location and view couldn’t have been better. Situation right above Bronte Beach, Café Salina offers delicious breakfast and lunch options and even have gluten free bread options which you don’t see everywhere. I absolutely loved what I ordered and would get it again in a heartbeat (Breakfast Bruschetta) but if I were there for lunch I would love to try the Grilled Prawn Salad or the Seafood Platter for 2…yum!
On an eating tour of Vancouver this summer (you think I’m kidding?) we stumbled upon the Granville Island Public Market for the first time. Having now discovered it I’m so excited to go back and spend more quality time there taking my time up and down each aisle really exploring the different stalls and vendors. Everything looked so perfect and fresh…you can tell there’s and excellent standard of quality there.
Think Pike Place Market meets The Ferry Building in SF…that’s what this food lovers heaven is like and I love it! Do yourself a favor and visit it on an empty stomach because there’s plenty to try and a ton of variety so you won’t want just one thing.
On the first leg of our honeymoon we had the pleasure of spending 3 full days in Phuket, Thailand at the beautiful Amanpuri Resort. Unfortunately for us the one thing you can’t control in life is the weather and we got rain…three days of it…torrential downpour to be exact. So what do you do when it’s raining and you can’t be outside? You eat:) And that we did!
Being that we were in Thailand it only seemed most appropriate to stick to the native cuisine which we did. Every morning we started the day with a gorgeous platter of fresh fruit followed by either eggs or yogurt and granola. My favorite was by far the passionfruit. Holy cow it has a lot of flavor!
Lunch and dinner mostly consisted of curried noodle dishes, seafood and some sort of rice dish. All very flavorful and delicious!
If you’re ever planning a trip to Phuket, Thailand I highly recommend the resort for your accommodation and/or food. Everything at Amanpuri is quite impressive! The attention to detail is unbelievable and will have you oooh-ing and ahhh-ing at it all.
My husband’s breakfast bruschetta which was layered with arugula, avocado, roasted tomatoes, crispy pancetta, poached eggs and finished with a balsamic reduction…lots of punch for a morning meal but very good!
