A list of places that made me drool all over my keyboard (big thanks to my boyfriend’s tastebuds for finding most of these)
Bighorn Lounge @ Delta (Kananaskis Country) – The ‘potato is a taco’, stuffed with a steak fatija mix. YUM!
Pizza of Waterton – Mmmm baked in a semi-deep dish, cheese over the toppings. Get the pizza bread to start too!
Prime Rib Village (Jasper) – Obviously order the prime rib, but don’t forget about the Greek salad. The owner Nick and the waitress Gail are the best! Best meals of my life…oh yes, I have been 5 times in 2 summers of visiting Jasper for a few days.
Lou Malnati’s – 2 of us had a medium, only do that if you are crazy. The sauce is the best pizza sauce I have ever tasted!
Giordano’s – same comment here as for Lou Malnati’s pizza. Love the crust here!
Gino’s East – If you can’t find a Giordano’s or a Lou Malnati’s, then here is the 3rd best deep dish pizza in the world (in my opine).
King of Donair (KOD) – late night eats, just perfect! Make sure you get a fresh pizza, not those silly slices warmed up.
Press Gang – Just ask the waiter/waitress. They know EVERYTHING about the food and suggest the best. Had to go back several times for a weekend excursion there.
Bubba Gump – Don’t laugh, this chain is not in Canada. I loved the coconut shrimp and most especially the shrimpin dippin sauce.
Wooden Heads – Pizza
Le Mechant Boeuf – Get the Tartar Tasting and the Crab Cakes
All Season’s Cafe – Perhaps the best meal of my life. Period. Order anything and everything!
The Stinking Rose – Whoa garlic. If I could take any more garlic, I would have tried the garlic ice cream. Someone let me know how it is!
Aroma – My sister and I had this one Valentine’s Day a long while ago. We couldn’t stop smiling and the deliciousness.
Camerra’s – Best pizza in town, perhaps.
La Vecchia - Ask for Nico, he knows his stuff.
Milagro – Best Mexican restaurant in the city? My vote goes here.
Mercatto – Pizza! Pasta! I’ve had them all. Take your pick.
Pizza Libretto – Best pizza in town, perhaps. Oh wait…did I already say that for Camerra’s above?
Queen Margherita Pizza – Craving real Italian tasting pizza? Destination Queen Street.
Portofino – Italian…pizza! You can watch them making the thin crust pizzas in front of you.
Savini – Great atmosphere, great pizza! Recommended by a taxi driver, good choice!
Gambrinus – read my post about this place. World class food.
Cindy’s – West Van, great breakfast (healthy too!)
Coast – Mmmmm west coast seafood. Again, ask the staff they can modify the side dishes no problem. Ocean Wise to boot, thank you!
Go Fish – The freshest fish in Vancouver.
Hell’s Kitchen – Pizza and Caesar’s! For un-Canadian’s – a caesar is a super amazing clam juice version of a bloody mary.
Incendio – Again pizza! Sorry, I love it. My man has an addiction to it but I never complain.
Judas Goat – Go for all the apps!
L’Abattior – These dishes are so unique, the drink list is equally unique.
Pourhouse – Why did I NOT order the steak in the bag?! I tested it though. Sorry, it’s not on the menu anymore. The pasta is delicious though (my vegetarian kick was high that day). Also, great bartending – get the specialty drinks.
Trolls – in Horseshoe Bay, must-get-fish-and-chips
Q4 (on 4th Ave.) – Mm. So nice, the staff. We tried the full Italian fare. Couldn’t walk after. Just order whatever they tell you. Please.
The Joint – pizza
