Day 2 of the road trip was another fun filled day and another opportunity to fill our stomachs. Our morning began with a trip to the West Side Market.
Upon entering the market, you can see and smell the fresh produce; all the colourful fruits and vegetables. One of the vendors gave me a sliver of strawberry to sample. It was very sweet and juicy, but I wouldn’t be able to take it along as a snack with all the food stops planned for the day, and fruits aren’t allowed across the border.
We made our way to the market’s main hall, where we found more food we can’t take, except for a stall called The Olive And The Grape that sells olive oils and gourmet vinegars. After breakfast, we almost raided their entire stock of product. I’ll definitely feature some those purchases in a future blog. Before I jump the gun here, let’s not forget about breakfast.
For breakfast, since we were at the West Side Market, we had to check out their cafe.
The restaurant was a nice, cozy diner with welcoming staff. We placed our orders and waited for them to arrive.
The orange juice was freshly squeezed and a great way to start the day.
For my meal, I ordered the West Side Market Frittata with Hash Browns. The frittata was very tasty and filled with a lot of toppings. Definitely a great meal to start the day.
