chiqee Having an exquisite & delicious brunch picked from @palletcoffee's new breakfast menu. Belgian waffles with BC grown peaches, breakfast croissant (egg, ham, cheese, & tomato), & a delightful iced latte to enjoy in the Vancouver sun. 2d

chiqee To me, anything with prosciutto is an excellent choice. Finch's prosciutto, Edam, tomato, lettuce, oil, & vinegar baguette. Simply but tasty. 3d

chiqee Already back in Vancouver but already miss walking to the beach every day & getting to see this.
Did u know there are coconut trees there? I've seen guys with shopping carts, picking them from trees to sell to beach goers. Ppl also sell bottled water for $1. I hope it doesn't get to soliciting braids & massages. That can get annoying very fast.

chiqee Bye, Miami! until next time! Beginning of Sept is a great time to visit Miami Beach/SoBe. Less crowded & hotels have slashed their prices. Weather was hot & sunny, with a period of sprinkling rain. Perhaps I lucked out. 1w

chiqee When I first came across this, I thought someone lost their breast implants. But I think it's the remains of a jellyfish. There's quite a few washed up on the beach as I walked from 4th to 28tj street beach. 1w

chiqee One last stroll on South Beach before my flight. I had every intentions to wake up early every day & run the strip of the beach but ended up sleeping a little later & not running at all. At least I woke up early today & took in the scenery one remaining time. 1w

chiqee Breakfast at the legendary Puerto Sagua on Collins Ave. Cubano sandwich & cafe con leche. No frills no fuss & all taste. I thought they had a full menu all day but on breakfast in the mornings. Will have to return for the Ox tail stew. 1w

chiqee Today's dinner is @tandcmiami: Fried Chicken w/ pickled red cabbage, Cheddar & Bacon Biscuit, & Tabasco Hollandaise sauce. Plus a side of tater tots w/ fried onions & garlic aioli.
The chicken is boiled in a vacuum pack for 20 hrs & flashed fried, so a crispy coating & very juicy chicken meat.
Oddly fried chicken in Miami is on a whole different level.

chiqee My last full day in South Beach was cloudy but still hot with periods of scorching sun. Best part was that the waters were the calmest this whole week. Taking a plunge to cool down wasn't as frightening. 2w

chiqee Spend majority of the day sleeping on the beach & waking up to hear & see the water from my vantage point. Not a lot of people on the beach except for the birds. All was heard were the waves & these guys. 2w

chiqee I couldn't leave Miami & not patron at least one of @chefmschwartz's restaurants. Breakfast at his name sake eatery @raleighhotel in SoBe. Lovely garden view setting. The lemon buttermilk pancakes were superb & the breakfast potatoes were delicious w/ caramelized onions. Next time will need to get to downtown for his other two eateries. 2w
