The weather was dreary and chilly. The cityscape is so new it seems to have little sense of its history. The nearby ski resort—host of the 2010 Winter Olympics—appears to have been designed by the Disney Corporation.
But I fell in love with Vancouver because of its food.
Maybe it was the public market that makes Whole Foods look like a 7-11.
Maybe it was the soft-shell crab wrapped in a delicate tempura at the neighborhood sushi bar; or the crisp, elegant veal tongue in a wine and bone-marrow reduction at Cibo Trattoria; or the Kobe beef and Bok Choy at Kingyo. Perhaps it was the surprisingly good local Chardonnay at Seasons.
The city is built around satisfying the palate.
It is worth the trip even coming from food friendly San Diego.
Oh. And the conference I attended was good too.
