Eating out in Victoria, B.C.
- Hagar Johansen
Thought I would start a bit of stuff on where to get good eats in Victoria. So you know my point of view/taste, I don't really care about how pretty my plate looks. I am very fussy about how the food tastes and about fresh ingredients. I cook for a hobby but I don't eat flowers. I also believe that some of the best food on this coast is served in logging and fishing camps.
Breakfast: Hit "The Blue Fox" on Fort Street. Fesh bread, lots of butter, good coffee, fresh eggs, and the best home-fries in Victoria. Bring a big appetite.
Lunch: Lots of good places but try "Eugene's" on Broad Street. Cafeteria style greek food. The pace is fast and the food excellent. Come early as its usually busy.
Supper: "Milestones" on the Inner Harbour has one of the best views after dark in town. Food is pretty standard fare but acceptable. Avoid the steaks and try the pasta dishes. With a table by the window and a couple of Martinis, looking at the lights of the parliament buildings reflecting on the water you'll be sure to enjoy yourself.
