The Boulder Dushanbe Teahoue - Girl's Day Out, Stop #1

[ Father-In-Law Update: Don is still in the ICU. It is a bit more serious than we had originally expected. It is serious enough that Ethan is returning home and Larr's brothers are coming to town. Don has had more than one brush with death; he is an Energizer Bunny, so I believe that he will recover. Still, it is hard. ]
Saturday was a much needed Girl's Day that Natalie and I both really needed. We has such a wonderful day. Instead of having one super long post, I have decided to break it into sections so that each great stop gets its spotlight.

Our first stop brunch at the Boulder Dushanbe Teahouse. What a beautiful place - even in the winter. Here's what their website has to say about the building:

Completely build by hand without the use of any power tools, the Teahouse was constructed in Dushanbe, Tajikistan as a gift to their sister city, Boulder. It was disassembled, crated up, and sent halfway around the world to be rebuilt in Boulder as a symbol of friendship and cultural exploration.

The menu featured a large variety of dishes. We both started out with housemade chia. Natalie had an omelet and great potatoes. I had a great Thai noodle and peanut dish.
We also had to try the homemade poptart. It was made with puff pastry and an interesting flavor of jam.
They also had an entire menu of teas. I as too interested in our conversation to check it out very closely.
The building was beautiful. I must take the kids to the teahouse some time soon.
