Bestie - Chinatown
Hi Guys!!! :D
Soo, guess what happened? My laptop died...lol.That's why I didn't post yesterday! I tried publishing my Mayalsia post yesterday and after spending 5 hours editing/formatting the pictures, everything glost got deleted :(
I'm pretty bummed.
I'm currently using my dad's laptop. I had to download a bunch of software to read my raw files which took a while. I'm still a bit sick, and semi-jet lagged lol. So what better way to cheer myself up then by getting some sausage?? :D
So I ended up going to Chinatown/Gastown yesterday! I've been really into exploring that area lately (lately as in these past two days LOL) I was originally going to go to Kobob Burger for lunch but they were closed when I went, so seeing how Bestie was nearby, I had to jump at the chance! I was their first customer of the day, so I didn't have to wait in line! :D
My hands still smell like currywurst.
Not that I'm complaining.
There's nothing more beautiful than a fat bratwurst smothered in a copious amount of mysterious ketchup, on a bed of fries.
Glorious, just glorious.
What can I say? I like my starch and protein! ;)
Can you tell I'm typing this in the wee hours of the night? I'm not drunk though...LOL
I went to Soft Peaks after, like any good food blogger would ;)
There wasn't a lineup hehe. (I was expecting one.)
Turns out they use soy lecithin in their soft serve (found out after I had licked it). My tongue starting itching. So I had to throw away $5. There's nothing more saddening them trashing a perfectly good icecream. Truly disheartening.
How cool is this place? The little holes in the walls look like bird houses! :D
Currywurst w/ Classic Pork Thuringer $8.503/5 stars
Saucy, sweet, and a wee bit spicy!! A cross between curry/ketchup, perfectly tangy with some spice at the end. The pork thuringer was thick, juicy, and porky! The fries were pretty decent: I liked how they kept some of the skin on!
Some reviews online said that the portion sizes were too small but I'm a pretty big eater, and even this was more than enough! :D
I can't decide which angle I like better LOL
Veggie Wurst $4
Getting my veggie fix, in wurst form! The description made it sound so enticing lol. This was yummy, it had a strong herbly flavour with a small touch of spice The texture was really enjoyable. Gummy, chewy, and not dry at all! It was pretty expensive clocking in at $4 haha
House made Mustard
Man, this stuff is strong! I'd liken it to wasabi. Easy on the sauce kids.
(Click to Enlarge) Here's a look at their menu!!
Great selection of beer and tap!
Some light reading!! Elective Mag by UBC, UVIC, SFU, and EC estudents!! :D
They also sell pretzels hehe, as evidenced by their cute little pretzel display!! They looked so enticing, but I was already too full lol
