lunching in Tofino & Ucluelet-don't be clueless try SHELTER or the FLOATHOUSE (7/20 & 21/12)

Should you end up in the Pacific Rim National Park way out on western Vancouver Island and don't seek haute cuisine or high prices there are many other options.

We had lunch in Tofino at SHELTER on our first day and Will's SHRIMP SANDWICH was perfect and my CORTEZ ISLAND MUSSELS with CHORIZO in White Wine Cream

Sauce and Garlic Bread were simple out of this world.

The next day as we headed back to civilization we stopped in Ucluelet at the south end of the road (Tofino is at the very north end of the peninsula) at the FLOAT HOUSE and had another super

lunch. Sam wanted only the grilled chicken with fried and these were huge steak style fries that crunched throughout. I have never had such huge had cut fries that are not mushy in the middle.

Will and I split the CRABCAKE SANDWICH and it was mighty fine (even us spoiled folks from DC would love it) and the PULLED PORK BBQ SANDWICH made with Root beer!!

This place is hard to find, so google it up before you ,and dress warmly, because if you want to sit outside on the water it can be chilly, though scenic.

Next stop, VICTORIA.
