Travel with Me! Victoria BC: Part 3

If you’re looking for some places to eat while in Victoria, here’s a brief rundown of the places where I noshed!

  1. Shanzee’s Biscuit Cafe

This cafe is no joke if you’re looking for a real deal buttermilk biscuit. Perfectly executed with the right amount of tart and saltiness. I had the “Trailer Jam” with Nutella – not badly priced at 4.15! My mouth is watering just thinking about it. So good.

2.Chocolats Favouris

This Quebec based chain does not fool around! This is the large, vanilla soft serve ice cream with a thick, delicious milk chocolate coating that i’m holding in the picture above and – don’t worry – I SHARED!  They have endless flavour combinations and a bunch of different goodies to choose from. I even spied some Soy Ice Cream (or maybe gelato flavours?) so there’s something for everybody. Highly recommend.

3. Lotus Pond Vegetarian Restaurant 

For the finicky Vegetarian, like myself, finding a restaurant where I can actually eat is not easy at all. I LOVE Lotus Pond. I ended up pawning the hot and sour soup as well as one spring roll on to Justin just so I could eat the sweet and sour soya balls. They are my absolute favourite and I haven’t found anything quite like it on the mainland. I got my plate too early and missed out on the ginger broccoli. So good. The lunch special is buffet style by weight. All the food in the picture above cost me about 12 dollars.

4. Pizza Al Forno

We went in with no expectations. It was hard to tell by the reviews if they were legitimate or not. The pizza was incredibly delicious, perfectly done with a great tangy sauce. The walk in specials are priced well. A lot of people were coming in looking for slices but they were not offered after 2PM. The quality of the pizza honestly speaks for itself. We ended up getting it two nights in a row. (Also pairs very nicely with a Phillips Sparkmouth Gingerale which we purchased directly from their brewery.)

This concludes my 3 part Travel with Me! Victoria BC feature. I hope you enjoyed all the fun tidbits of information and pictures. I want to showcase the adventures I have with all of you and will be moving on to my next destination.

All opinions are my very own and I was not compensated by any of the above eateries.
