590. Rockies Roadtrip | Day 5 - Botanist

Botanist heirloom tomatoes salad
Today I went for lunch at Botanist with my friend Samantha (who lives in Vancouver!). I loved it! It's a fairly new restaurant that opened in April at the Fairmont Pacific Rim hotel. Everything was really well presented and tasted fresh and delicious. It kind of reminded me of Canoe in Toronto (aka my favourite restaurant). I would definitely go back if I could. For my first course, I got an heirloom tomatoes salad with burrata, plums and hibiscus vinagirette.

Botanist salmon
Then Spring Salmon with corn, leeks and morel mushrooms

Botanist beetroot cake
Then Beetroot cake with hazelnut, vanilla, gew├╝rztraminer gel, elderflower frozen foam. So pretty.

Laduree Vancouver
Laduree Macaron marshmallow
After lunch, we went to Laduree for a couple hours before Samantha went home. I had such a fun time and hopefully we will meet again soon..maybe in Toronto?! ;) Then I just wandered around downtown by myself, bought yet another Stellasport outfit (I have an excuse this time..I'm on a 3-week vacation and realized I didn't bring enough clothes!) then went back to my favourite area again to walk around in search of food.

Harbour Air Vancouver
Cute little harbour air seaplanes. Can't wait to go on one!!

Mahony and Sons
Sat down for dinner while tackling the huge pile of emails I accumulated today. Yes I'm actually still "working full time" while here..

Canada 150 Vancouver
My friends from Luxembourg arrive tomorrow and we will be in Vancouver for a few more days before we officially begin the roadtrip! Can't wait!!
