Staying with my foodie friends Kelly and Wil in Victoria was awesome because we visited some great restaurants and they gave me tips on where to go during the day when they were at work. The result was that I ate out in Victoria more than any other city I’ve been to recently. Here are some of the highlights:
Kel and Wil recommended that I visit this place for breakfast. The menu was extensive and I was not feeling experimental so I went for the McFloydfin which consisted of an English muffin, egg, ham, tomato, chipotle mayo and cheddar cheese served with potatoes. At $7.95 it was a great deal, filled me up and was very tasty. But what was best about this place? The service. It was flawless and super friendly.
ReBar Modern Food
Where do you go in Victoria when you are craving a light, tasty salad? To ReBar! I had a salad made with quinoa, rice, greens and avocado and yes, it’s simple, but it was delicious and made me feel good. Accompanied with a fresh carrot, ginger and apple juice, it went down a treat.
Spinnakers Gastro Brewpub
On my second to last night the three of us headed to Spinnakers with the intention of just having a couple of beers with dinner. Instead, we tasted pretty much the entire beer menu! For my main I chose the BC Noodle Bowl (steamed rice noodles, locally produced tofu, seasonal vegetables in a thai style tamarind sauce topped with pea shoots with a side of peanut sauce). Kel and I felt it was necessary to get dessert too, so we each selected five chocolate truffles to be paired with even more beer. Our idea of a perfect Wednesday night 🙂
