Yesterday, my girlfriend Karen and I decided to get some fresh air and exercise up on Grouse Mountain (a very pretty local ski hill in the North Shore of Vancouver). So early in the AM, we strapped on snowshoes and hiked up the Snowshoe Grind. The Grind was a killer workout indeed and we had an appetite for lunch by 11am, so we visited Attitudes Bistro for a sandwich and soup.
The soup of the day was tomato and root vegetable – the server said it was one of the better ones (had tomato, parsnips, celery, & carrot) , so Karen ordered a bowl and I ordered a cup with a sandwich.
- The soup seemed kind of bland and could have used:
- a dollop of cream with a fresh herb (perhaps basil)
- chunks of another vegetable would be nice to add some texture
- some sort of nice garnish, perhaps a bit of fried shredded parsnips
