Eating Our Way Through Tofino… Again!

Hi Folks:

Back at the end of March we decided to indulge our fascination for beach walking and combine it with a little winter storm watching by heading across the island to Tofino. We’ve stayed in Tofino three times now; as it happens each time was at a different location. We […]

It's Pumpkin Time!

Hi Folks:

Last year we did our Food post on pumpkins (A Plethora of Pumpkins) after Hallowe’en but we thought maybe this year we could be proactive. With Thanksgiving recently behind us, what better time to talk about pumpkins? In last year’s post we offered up some of our favourite pumpkin […]

Eating Our Way Through Victoria...

Hi Folks:

We haven’t written one of these for a while, but we have been continuing to sample some of the best culinary experiences Victoria has to offer and we thought we’d suggest a few more. If you’ve read our previous ‘Food‘ posts you’ll know that we don’t write about places […]

A Plethora of Pumpkins...

Hi Folks:

Since Canadian Thanksgiving and Hallowe’en have come and gone and American Thanksgiving is just around the corner, this time of year there are a plethora of pumpkins about. Most often used to make Jack-O’-Lanterns and then either left to rot or offered up in tribute in some form or […]

Eating Our Way Through Victoria... Celebrations!

Hi Folks:

Well, last Saturday was Marcia’s birthday and since she was off on both Friday and Saturday we (I) expanded her birthday celebration into a two-day event. Fortunately Marcia was willing to go along with my schemes! Before I continue, I should add a little backstory…

Eating Our Way Through Victoria!

Hi Folks!

Well, on this one night of the year where perhaps more candy is consumed by more people than any other night, we have two restaurants to share with you from this past month. Both are places we’ve been meaning to go to for some time…

Eating Our Way Through Victoria... Cafés

Hi Folks:

I remember reading somewhere that Victoria has the second highest number of restaurants per capita in North America… so much good food, so little time… With all of those choices Marcia and I have become a little sedate in our selections – frequenting mostly places that we’ve been to […]

Eating Our Way Through Victoria... And Beyond!!

Hi Folks:

This will serve as two months’ worth of ‘Food’ posts for us! We’ve had some interesting culinary adventures over the past couple of months… actually we were waiting for a writeup from a ‘guest blogger’, but that didn’t pan out so you get me instead. Let’s see now, where […]

Eating Our Way Through Victoria... Tea Time!

Hi Folks:

In a couple of previous ‘Food‘ posts we’ve discussed some of our favourite coffee shops in and around Victoria. We thought we’d switch that up a bit and talk about tea instead.

1) Murchie’s Tea and Coffee: Murchie’s has been an icon in Victoria for somewhere around […]

Eating Our Way Through Victoria... Pumpkin Time!

Hello Dear Reader!

Well, we’ve had a few culinary adventures to share with you this month.

Before we get to that, however, earlier this month Marcia went out to dinner with the folks she works with at a restaurant downtown. She ordered the equivalent salad to the one we’d […]
