The Tour Begins…
We start the tour at the The Flying Pig, a modern whimsical restaurant serving up delicious west coast cuisine in a beautiful setting. Here we sample an Alberta Beef Carpaccio topped with local Dungeness Crab topped with a light salad and freshly grilled baguette. Paired with a fresh local BC wine, a perfect way to start the evening. We then take a stroll through historic Waddington Alley and into the heart of Victoria’s Old Town, a heritage district with an exciting past and plenty of stories. Iconic sights include the Johnson Street Bridge and the iconic Wharf Street waterfront. We then make our way to the Canoe Brewpub. Located in the old City Lights building, this heritage site now houses one of the most delicious brewpubs in the city. Here we will sample 2 house made craft beers paired with a Lamb Arancini. Don’t worry our veggie friends, this tour can be make vegetarian upon request!
The Tour Continues…
We then make our way up Fisgard Street and past the iconic Chinatown District. Find out why Victoria’s Chinatown is the oldest in Canada and marvel at some of the oldest buildings in the city. Experiencing Chinatown at night is a must! We then reach our next stop at Dobosala Cantina for some eclectic dishes paired with a refreshing cocktail. Head chef and owner Kunal Ghose is a local foodie celebrity with a handful of award-winning restaurants in town and at Dobosala we will sample the most incredible fusion dish you can imagine. Think Filipino cuisine mixed with Korean and a bit of Polynesian thrown in for good measure.
The Final Stop
We end the tour next to the historic City Hall building at Veneto, recently voted best cocktail bar in Victoria. Here we will finish the tour with some Italian inspired dessert and their signature cocktail, the Hotel Rialto. Feel free to linger after the tour and continue to explore their incredible cocktail list or let us recommend where the night shall take you.
