2020-37 || finding a port

Since day 1 of this trip on Vancouver Island, we've been on a mission to find food that would keep our cravings at bay. In other words, we wanted Asian food of the same quality or better than what we can find in Vancouver! 


I wouldn't say Victoria BBQ House and Bakery is quite the same quality as some of the best Chinese bakeries back on the Mainland, but they had pineapple buns and BBQ pork buns, fresh out of the oven when we stopped by the other day, before the smoke (BTS? ha.).

We devoured them right in front of their shop, on the street, so that they would still be warm and fluffy. The BBQ pork bun (on the left) was really stuffed with meat. Please ignore the angle of the photo, which makes it look smaller than the pineapple bun. I'd come back more often if they had a hybrid pineapple BBQ pork bun and served HK milk tea. 

Side note - if you look closely at the photo above, you'll see a sliver of baby S's stroller, where we abandoned her she was napping. 

"You know it's like, I dunno you... you float out... float out at sea then one day you find a port, say, 'I'm gonna stay here a few days'. A few days becomes a few years. Then you forgot where you were going in the first place. Then you realize you don't really give a shit about where you was going, cause you like where you at." - George "Noodles" Stone (Dave Chapelle), A Star is Born

Still watching a lot of HGTV these days, and they talk about "forever homes" a lot. This hotel sure isn't a forever home, but I would have to say it's been a pretty comfortable port for the past few days.
