Soft Peaks | Dining in Vancouver

Soft Peaks is made with organic Avalon milk with little sweetness and is silky smooth. It is by far the best place in Vancouver to get a soft serve ice cream. Having memories of getting the perfect soft ice cream in England (because the cows just make tastier milk there) I was taken back to the same flavours and memories of a proper soft serve. There are many options to choose from as well as toppings, and if you're in Gastown looking for a place to stop for dessert, this is the place to be. 

This was the Sunrise In California - Sweet and Sour Yuzu marmalade on their signature twist. 

There are SO many different twists and soft serves to choose from (himalayan pink salt to toasted coconut and matcha powder toppings.) It is definitely a place to frequent. Lines can get a little lengthy but the wait is worth it.

Cork & Fin

 It's all about being fresh. I love being home because you can get the freshest seafood, and have it turned into something delicious. Cork and Fin not only has a great cocktail list, but the food menu shows promise. The oysters (which were a dollar each during their monday event "a buck a shuck",) were super yummy and from the east coast. My mum had their seafood chowder, that came with fish too. For my appetizer, I had the salmon tartare with quail egg and caviar on top (seafood friendly). To finish, I had the lobster ravioli (a bit too thick of a pasta might I add but the lobster meat and cream were fantastic).   Of course we had to have dessert and we ordered the olive oil ice cream with fleur de sel. The ice cream was very different but loved it - except for that there was too much fleur de sel (there were moments where I was trying to have a conversation or enjoy the ice cream, but the immediate saltiness was quite overwhelming at times...)  Overall, I had a great experience at Cork and Fin, I highly suggest you go if you're in Gastown, Vancouver.
