Bellingham, Washington Part 2: Ivar’s Seafood Bar

During my trip to Bellis Fair in Bellingham, Washington; my cousin and I had a small lunch meal to share at Ivar’s Seafood Bar located in the foodcourt. She heard that the clam chowder was really good, and luckily there was a combo – $11.99 for a three piece fish and chips + drink + clam chowder.

The fried fish was tasty and fresh, not sure what kind of fish it was- I think cod or sole? The fried were deliciously potato-y with the right amount of salt. The tartar sauce that came with it was delicious as well. We each share 1.5 pieces of fish and it was enough to satisfy us (since we pigged out on cinnamon centres at Cinnabon after.)

The clam chowder was chock full of flavour and clams! Not like Tim Hortons or what UBC serves with 5 clams and a bunch of potatoes and other cheap condiments. The clam chowder was hot, creamy, and very clammy! Warms you up on a hot day!

For all those living in Vancouver and driving down to Bellis Fair- be sure to give this a try! I realized that other malls- such as Richmond Centre, Pacific Centre,and Metrotown don’t have seafood bars in the food court! I wish they did! The only other delicious stand alone store I can think of is Pajo’s Fish n’ chips. We need more of these places!!

PS: USA’s fountain “coke” is Pepsi.  🙁

What Happened in Vegas, Got Blogged in Vancouver – Quick guide + Vdara Hotel Review

In winter 2011, my friends and I travelled to Sin City- Las Vegas! We stayed for 4 nights, 5 days. It’s probably my second time going and it’s been over a decade since I went back. I don’t remember anything from my last trip, so going to Vegas in 2011 was a whole new experience.  Fortunately, the weather was great in Vegas and shopping was good. It got a little chilly at night, but during the day there was sunshine and blue sky! It was definitely a lot of fun and I want to give a quick guide for people going to Vegas and a review of my hotel. I stayed at Vdara, which is located at City Centre. Here is a breakdown of Vegas:
