Epicurean tourism – random thoughts

The Blue Canoe in Stevetson, BC is one of the numerous memorable eateries we enjoyed during our road trip to Canada’s West Coast

Some of my friends laugh at me, because a main attractor when I travel is the variety of new restaurants I can potentially discover.

Having said that, there are other of my friends who are hard core, dyed-in-the-wool foodies who celebrate our passion for finding the unique, quirky, special, ‘you-can-only-find-this-dish-here’ kind of restaurants.

After a two-week road trip between Edmonton and  Vancouver Island and the Lower Mainland, and the various stops on the way home, we found a good number of ‘special’ restaurants.

Off the top of my head, here is what we found, and I’ll do a more, in-depth post on them soon.
