The Tour Begins…
We start the tour at the The Livet, a modern restaurant serving west coast small plates with a lively and young vibe. Here we dine on house-made charcuterie including meats, cheeses and their mind-blowing focaccia bread. We pair this board with a glass of bubbly to get the tour started off right. We then head next door to Yalla for some beautiful Middle-Eastern dishes paired with a local craft beer. Did you know that Victoria is considered the craft beer cradle of Canada? Here we will try some Hoyne beer from local brewmaster Sean Hoyne, which pairs perfectly with the spices that make Middle Eastern food so enticing.
The Tour Continues…
After a lovely stroll aong the Blanshard Corridor passing historic St. Andrews Cathedral and the old Carnegie Library built in 1904, we continue the tour to the modern Dobosala Cantina. One of 3 restaurants owned by local celebrity chef Kunal Ghose, this restaurant takes inspiration from multiple culinary influences such as Hawaiian, South Asian and Indigenous dishes. Kunal was named one of the Top Foodies of the Year for 2018 and his growing empire of local restaurants are highly respected in our city. Here we try an Asian inspired dish paired with an amazing refreshing cocktail.
The Final Stop
We end the tour at the newly renovated Veneto Kitchen & Bar located across the street from iconic City Hall. Here we do an incredible tiramisu profiterole dessert from pastry chef extraordinaire Courtney Francis. We pair this elegant Northern Italian dessert with their beautiful signature cocktail, one of the most popular drinks at this very trendy cocktail lounge.
