It’s summer- season to be hot, humid, and sticky. It also means barbecue season.

For those of you who are avid fans of burgers, what’s worse than a dry burger? I have been to countless pubs, restaurants, barbecues, etc and sometimes, your typical condiments like ketchup and relish just don’t cut it. You take a bite, it’s dry, it gets stuck in your throat, because there isn’t a sauce to bind all of it together.

So, what can you do? (more…)

Over the course of the year, I’ve been traveling from country to country, but nothing’s better than home. During one of my smaller trips, the bf and I visited Salt Spring Island for the first time.

It’s a small place, a few hours could get around the entire island. A place where there’s no such thing as strangers, a place where it’s almost douchebag free. Magical, right? Didn’t think the food would be very impressive, but boy was I wrong.

We were walking around town with a map in hand when one of the locals asked if we were lost. He suggested a few places for food, but insisted that we check out the cafe. He said it was one of the locals favourites around here and that it’s different.

Walking along the harbour area, we saw it. It’s a place that’s guaranteed to make you smile. The cafe reminds me of something that’s taken out of a Disney movie, a little cafe that encircles a tree. There was a charming sign hanging from above the door, a few patio seats, and no matter what hour, is always at least half full.

Entrance to the cafe.

The server we had was attentive, was there when we needed anything, and prepared us with a stack of napkins for what we ordered. An order of cheese burger with a spinach salad and an order of the deluxe burger with a Caesar salad. While we were waiting, we took some more pictures from the inside of the cafe.

The tree. Most of the locals sat out on the patio area to bathe in the sunlight.

When the food came, I was just shocked by how good it looked and healthy. (more…)

Last year, we checked out the annual Adult Pirate Pak Day at White Spot. We just learned that it’s returning for its 4th year.

On August 17, kids and the kids inside all of us can order their childhood favourite — Pirate Pak at White Spot. This special edition “Adult Pak” will be available this Wednesday and this Wednesday only. Starting at $10.49, you have the option of the Legendary Burger, Bacon Cheddar Bigger Burger, Provolone Veggie Burger on a multigrain bun or the BC Chicken Burger. Each meal is served in the iconic boat and comes complete with fresh-cut fries, a soft drink, a scoop of ice cream and a chocolate “gold” coin. For each “Adult Pak” they sell, White Spot will donate $2 to Zajac Ranch for Children. More than $40,000 were raised through this fundraiser in 2010.

Last year we tried to customize our order, and our server was willing to accommodate our requests. It was a win-win, since we got an Adult Pak and there was more donation to the charity. I hope they will allow customization again this year since it’s all for a good cause.
