Slice Resto (Nanaimo)

From their Facebook profile
 They started out with a mobile catering truck in Cedar, quickly moving up to a pizza and pasta delivery place in 2011. In 2012 they turned their business into a full licensed restaurant serving up their delicious unique twists on homemade comfort foods. They locally source their ingredients whenever possible. 

 When we stopped in for lunch on a beautiful Sunday afternoon I was already well acquainted with their amazing pizza but had not checked out their fully licensed restaurant yet. 

As soon as we entered the restaurant we were warmly greeted by the hostess/waitress and quickly seated in an awesome booth (who doesn't love a good booth!). The decor is funky and inviting, I checked out their creative pallet walls and found myself amused by the funny signs and fun decorations. 

 The service was great! Quick, efficient and thorough. We ordered a delicious poutine ($8.25) to start.
The amazing poutine! With some hot sauce added!
 Then I ordered the crispy cod burger ($13.95) with a side of onion rings as the main. My mom ordered the beef dip ($13.95) which she stated was comparable to her favourite beef dip in Nanaimo! We really loved the slightly sweet, spicy chipotle mayo that was served with the onion rings, it was a perfect combo. We were very impressed with the quality and quantity. I was already planning in my head what I would try next time we visited Slice Resto.


Crispy Cod Burger with the best onion rings ever!
  Slice has always been well known for their amazing pizza, but there is so many other delicious items to check out on their menu! It's worth the drive!

The Black Goose Inn

Black Goose logo from their website

 This family owned and operated British (with a bit of Scottish thrown in!) pub style restaurant was originally constructed in 1921. Located near Rathtrevor Beach in Parksville, the location couldn't be better and the food is excellent! 

 The Black Goose Inn offers up traditional, home-cooked meals 7 days a week - as well as 19 beers and ciders on tap! In the warmer months you can enjoy an ocean view and sit at one of the many outside patio tables. In the cooler months you can enjoy a beautiful log fire inside!

 We sat down outside on a warm Sunday, but the clouds quickly came in and it started sprinkling so we made our way inside. Regardless of whether you enjoy your time at the Black Goose Inn inside or outside, the ambience is fantastic and you'll be cozy and happy. 

The delicious seafood salad
The service is British pub style so it is counter service, food and drinks are ordered at the bar. The menu offers up some amazing traditional UK meals, including assorted ploughmans, meat and vegetarian pies, bangers and mash and fish & chips. The large menu will please even the pickiest of eaters.



Traditional bangers & mash
  


I'm a huge fan of the seafood salad ($18.95) romaine lettuce, cucumber and peppers drizzled with a delicious wasabi dressing completed with smoked salmon lox, shrimp and bacon on top. 

Banger and mash ($11.95) is a very traditional UK dish you can order at the Black Goose Inn. 

There are daily lunch and dinner specials. 

They are open at 11:30am daily 7 days a week, they close around 9pm in the winter and 10pm in the summer. There is a children's menu available.

Located at: Beach Acres Resort, 1051 Resort Drive, Parksville, BC, V9P 2E4

Cassidy Country Kitchen

 The Cassidy Country Kitchen is up and cooking some amazing home-style food again after a fire ripped through the building just over a year ago, seems like it is even better than before! 

 The small but delicious menu focuses on fresh home-made meals, including breakfast, lunch and dinner. Sunday offers up a 7am-3pm brunch. After many recommendations we decided to check out the Country Kitchen for breakfast. 

 Upon entering the new building we were impressed by the attention to detail in order to create a "country kitchen" feel. Success. We were pleasantly greeted and seated quickly, showing up at 10:30am on a Sunday for breakfast can be dicey but service was excellent. 

 My mom ordered the BC Benny complete with two poached eggs, local Johnston's bacon, cheddar cheese, creamy hollandaise sauce on a fresh made in house buttermilk biscuit served with fried red skinned potatoes.

The scrumptious Southwestern Skillet
  I ordered the Southwestern Skillet with ground chorizo sausage, red peppers, jalapenos, a blend of cheddar and mozzarella cheese topped with two eggs any style (I had scrambled) fresh avocado and fried red skinned potatoes and choice of toast. I also ordered a side of their delicious hollandaise sauce to complete an already amazing dish. 

 The food was amazing, quickly served and greatly enjoyed - we can't wait to come back to try the lunch and dinner menu!
