Neverland Vegan High Tea

Image
 I won a gift card for Neverland Tea Salon and Foodie Buddy suggested we go there because they have vegan high tea. Regular price of the tea is $50 per person which for Vancouver is a reasonable price. We were a little late to arrive as we commuted by transit. The place was very crowded but we were seated and given the menu. The server explained that we could have as many teas as we wanted but you could only one at a time. I ordered an apple black tea for the first one they also have a variety of plant milk choices I requested almond milk.  I ordered the Vegan high tea and Foodiebuddy ordered the traditional. Our platter came with all the vegan items close to me and the other items on the other side. The server explained what everything was but I still had to look up the menu online.  I started by trying the scone. The vegan ‘cream’ tasted like the coconut whipping cream you get at the grocery store. We were only given one container of jam to share but foodie buddy let me have it. The

Grand Bahia Turqesa Dominican Republic

This is an all inclusive resort in punta Cana. It is a complex of five resorts and this is the furthest from the beach and the cheapest. I really enjoyed it the staff were all friendly our housekeeper didn't speak English and I only speak a little Spanish but it wasn't a problem she was always around we could communicate what we needed. There was only one bed in the room we wanted two so they came right away and made the day bed it was comfy. There was always a tram available to take us where we wanted to go but we spent most of our time at our resorts pool lobby and buffet which was only a few minute walk or at the main hotel which had shops and a casino was also a short walk as well. We did take the tram a few times to see the restaurant and other resorts a couple of time just because it was a fun ride. The beach was beautiful they kept the sand so clean the first time I thought it's really rare that sand is so soft with no rocks in it but the second time it was windy an

New York Fries Poutine

I was excited to find out the gravy is vegetarian as I haven't had New York Fries gravy in over 20 years. I really haven't had poutine in that long I have had a few speiality vegetarian ones but they really haven't been poutine they have been fries with toppings. I was excited to be able to have something that resembles poutine even though I knew it wouldn't be authentic. I enjoyed this the fries were crispy and hot, the gravy was tasty and ther were a lot of cheese curds. I would have liked more gravy on this. The only things I would improve would be more gravy and it would have been nice if the cheese curds were slightly warm. I ate the whole things so it was good I will have it again and next time I will ask for more gravy.
