Wolf in the Fog – Tofino, British Columbia

We went to the Island for a week for my friends wedding ceremony to celebrate them getting married earlier in the year. We found ourselves in Tofino, because we were trying to go to Pacific Rim and found this restaurant as I wanted to eat seafood!

We had to wait a bit for a table, this place was very popular and everyone was enjoying themselves in this town. It definitely wasn’t a city pace place which was awesome and I wasn’t hungry enough to be hangry so it was just right! The wait staff did tell us to look at the menu as we were waiting in line an to put the order in as soon as we can once we got our table, so we took their advice. I ended ordering the Sweet Tuna, albacore tuna with coconut, chili, herbs and it’s served with iceberg lettuce!! I don’t usually eat “salads” but this one was intriguing. The best thing about this is the lettuce was a giant wedge next to the tuna, so I didn’t have to eat it! It was perfect!

We also ordered their Fishermans Lunch was a delicious pot or deep skillet of fresh seafood in tomato broth, with some perfectly grilled bread to soak up all the broth with seafood goodness. This was definitely the highlight of the meal and we really ordered it as a lot of other guests were enjoying it and we didn’t want to be left out!

The overall experience here was divine! It was a beautiful afternoon here at Tofino where we ended up spending the day at Pacific Rim.

Louisiana Purchase – Edmonton, Alberta

I have wonderful coworkers that send me to eat at awesome places, and this particular time they sent me to Edmonton in search for a delicious Southern food and ended up at Louisiana Purchase in downtown Edmonton.

We started with their Seafood Gumbo which is something I can eat day and and day out of my life. Basically very fragrant and flavourful soup with seafood! All things that I like and here, no exception!! This thick soup is here to satisfy me!

This was dinner, and I ordered their Louisiana Jambalaya which is a plate of baked Tomato rice with ham, chicken, smoked sausage and peppers, topped with one Cajun spiced shrimp with creole sauce. This plate may look small but it was so filling!! Everything was tasty and I couldn’t put it down even though I was stuffed to near explosion!

The hubby ordered the Satisfaction Plate, of course! Why wouldn’t he!? This was pretty amazing as well, although it looked like what I ordered with more stuff, he was satisfied. On this plate, it had Louisiana Jambalaya with shrimp creole and red beans & sausage. Choice of creole sauce or tomato-tequila salsa and we picked the tomato-tequila sauce. Hearty and delicious.

To end this night, we didn’t stop. We ordered their Southern Pecan Pie which is what it sounds like, a pecan pie with whipped cream and fresh berries. This pie was perfect, it wasn’t sweet where it was hard to eat when you’re so stuffed, but yet it was still full of pecan flavour.

What an amazing dinner here! I was so happy I didn’t have to sit in the car for 3 hours to go home and got to spend the rest of the evening in Edmonton and digest. And yes, after a few hours I ate again as this city has so much unique and tasty food to offer.

Green Leaf Bistro – Victoria, British Columbia

We went to Victoria for Canada Day, and if you know my boss, he was there during this time as well and we said we’d try to meet up in front of the Empress for fireworks if it all works out. So, I had to spend the day in this city even though I was actually staying in Parksville. So, for lunch we wandered off to Green Leaf Bistro for a quick soupy lunch.

I know I didn’t want or need this, but since it was on the table, I eat it! It was Barbecued Quail. I do eat quail and I love it deep fried, but like chicken wings, I’m not always in the mood for them. This was actually really good and I’m glad it was ordered. It was something quite different, so it’s always good to give new things a shot.

I ordered a bowl of Spicy Beef Noodle Soup as I needed something to get me going again. It’s already been a long day and somehow i needed to last until midnight. The bowl of noodle soup was pretty big and not as spicy as I had originally prepared myself for by looking at it. It was very spicy, don’t get me wrong, but I thought it would be constant choking and sweating and running nose. I’m not sure why I thought that would be enjoyable, but I can’t question myself as I never make sense. This was a pretty big portion and generous amount of meat on top.

We ordered something “normal” just in case my order was too spicy for me to handle. We had their Brisket Noodle Soup and this was pretty good. The soup was definitely a different broth and it was good!

Overall, we left here very full and satisfied. Now that I’m blogging this and looking back.. I was not very smart at all getting a spicy soup. “what if” I had a stomach ache from the spice!? LOL! Everything worked out well though, as usual!
