We had the first Family Day in BC. For that day, Whistler Blackcomb announced that the ticket price was 50% off! Collin and I, my co-worker, former co-worker, and her family decided to go riding together. We had breakfast on Whistler mountain and lunch on Blackcomb mountain.

There were a lot of people on the mountain, but we managed to find seats at Glacier Creek Lodge around 1:00 pm. Glacier Creek is at the bottom of Jersey Cream and Glacier chair lifts.

Collin ordered from Fries section, and I wasn’t hungry so I just grabbed snack.

As the first eat-out this year, Collin chose this restaurant to celebrate. I agreed, as we really liked their food at the last visit when his birthday. They have prix fixe brunch for $29 and change the menu occasionally, so you can enjoy a seasonal 3-course meal at a reasonable price. It would be great for first-time customers to try them out.

Market by Jean-Georges is on 3rd floor of Shangri-La Hotel, which is the highest building in BC and is located in the centre of downtown Vancouver. If you have a problem with stairs, find the elevator beside Urban Fare market.

We ordered from their prix fixe brunch menu.

When an expediter brought my dish, she said Sushi, and I told her that I didn’t order Sushi. She restated Sashimi after that. Come to think of it, why didn’t they say Sushi on the menu? 🙂

His entree, French Toast with Roasted Apples and Crispy Bacon

After Collin started eating his main, he realized that he had enough sweets and that the dessert was still coming, so he asked the server to pack the half. I warned him after we ordered, but it was too late. I should have done that before we ordered.

My entree, Nut and Seed Crusted Snapper, Sweet and Sour Broth

My dessert, Poached Pear, Chewy Caramel, Vanilla Sherbet

The caramel was hard because of ice cream? It could have been more enjoyable if caramel was on top of pear or on the side.

Compared to the last menu, this menu was OK. Don’t get me wrong, taste was good. I just liked the last menu more. In this menu, I liked my appy best.

For Sunday brunch, we ate at the Pacific restaurant at The Hotel Grand Pacific in Victoria. It is located in the inner harbour. We ate brunch a year ago as well, and we liked the dishes.

We ordered from their brunch menu.

Collin ordered traditional eggs Benedict, and I ordered Pacific salmon open sandwiches. Eggs Bene is served with béarnaise sauce, and he said he preferred to Hollandaise.

The brunch menu said the open sandwiches are served with your choice of tossed green salad, fries, or soup of the day. The waitress said there is a choice of sweet potatoes fries, so I chose, but it seemed like extra charge. Also, it was not technically sweet potatoes, but yam potatoes. 🙂

Here are pictures from the last year. Traditional eggs Benedict and continental breakfast. (I like the last year’s presentation of the traditional eggs Benedict better…)
