Ok, so if you haven't gotten this by now then I'll let you in on a not-so-secret fact about me: I LOVE FOOD. The main reason I wanted to visit Vancouver was to go to the summer night market in Richmond (I would say on average about 95% of my life decisions are solely based off of where I can eat food, look at food, and/or take pictures of food). Richmond is a dominate Asian community close to the city, so as you can imagine, this was a primarily Asian market (let's just say, there were a few adventurous Caucasians and my boyfriend was the only Latino person there).
My all time favorite show is Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern. It documents a jolly, adventurous food-loving man who travels all over the world trying strange and delicious treats. In one of the episodes, he tries deep fried stinky tofu. So as soon as I saw a stinky tofu vendor at the market, I knew I had to try it. It is fermented tofu that according to Wikipedia has a smell that resembles "rotten garbage or manure"....hungry yet? I truly appreciate delicacies from other cultures, but unfortunately stinky tofu is just not for me.
Besides that, there were bubble tea stands after bubble tea stands, fresh dim sum, vendors selling Hello Kitty socks, used DVD's and video games, and little cell phone trinkets....Asian much? For my cultural adventure I wore distressed boyfriend jeans that I recently purchased at Nordstrom. I love them. Since it was a night event, I paired my outfit with a pleather jacket I purchased awhile back from Forever 21. And of course, an essential for any food event-a loose fitting top.
Oh my goodness. And the poutin. I'm speechless. Utterly speechless (AKA, too delicious for me to properly comprehend).
