I was on Whistler mountain in the middle of December. It was still in the early season and also there wasn’t much snow fallen, so the higher alpine lifts weren’t open. Eventually I got bored, because I didn’t have many runs to ski on. I joined the complimentary tour on the mountain, which mountain hosts will take you to any available runs to introduce runs and views, based on your riding level.

After the two-hour worth of tour, my legs were so tired. I went back to Roundhouse and decided to have late lunch just before closing the kitchen. There is food available at Mountain Market on the second floor.

I ordered from the noodle bowl menu.

Looking at the picture of the menu below, the noodle bowl wasn’t available for Kids menu? Well, anyways, I was able to have it. For the noodle bowl, you can choose, one kind of noodles, one kind of protein, and one kind of broth. You can go for vegetarian choice or gluten free. I chose egg noodle, seasoned chicken, and Japanese Miso.

As a Kids Size, in addition to the noodle bowl, you can choose three of any combinations from fruits drink, and snack. For fruits, there were choices, orange or apple. For drink, a pack of juice, milk, etc. For snack, carrots, Edamame, or yogurt.

I got news a few month back that this organic donuts shop was moved and re-opened in a new location. In the middle of November, not knowing where it was, I walked on Pender street after I went to Shiatsu, I found the shop! Having excited, as Collin finished his shift earlier and I was about to meet him, I sent a text if he wanted to have some. Although he asked vanilla or maple or jelly filled, they didn’t have such. 😛

The new location of Cartems Donuterie is close from Waterfront station. The shop now has some tables so that you can eat in. They offer organic donuts that cost $3 per donut. There are gluten free ones, too.

I liked early grey one! I can’t remember what the today’s special was, but it was like churro-ish or Denish-ish.

For Collin’s birthday, we had a dinner with our close friends. Before the day, one of friends asked me where she can get birthday cake this time. I hadn’t been following news for new cafe or restaurant for a while, so I searched if there is anything new and if not, where the place I hadn’t tried.

And, Thomas Haas Chocolates & Patisserie came up. I have heard about this place many many times, but I just didn’t have a chance to try, because their locations are not close to where I usually go.

She chose 5 pieces of individual cake at the Kitsilano location.

It sounded like Tiramisu, but it wasn’t. It was more like a sponge cake with coffee taste, as it’s described.

Pistachio Apricot Cake
(Pistachio and White Chocolate Mousse, Fresh Apricot, Vanilla Shortbread)

We shared each one of them, so I can’t remember much how the taste was. Haha. I didn’t have any disliking feeling, so they must be all good. Next time, I would like to enjoy one by myself.
