  • Daniel's Restaurant
    It's safe to say all living things like food, but maybe not as much as Chef Victor Bongo does. Recently transplanted from Africa, a young Victor worked as a dishwasher, but the siren call of the culinary scene lured him. He navigated from one kitchen to another, learning to cook, achieving the position of head chef, and eventually studying with three-star Michelin Chef Edmund Liew-On. Today, Chef Bongo helms Daniel's Restaurant, where he puts his considerable talents to work blending internationally beloved spices into local seasonal and organic ingredients. He places pan-seared scallops into seas of pureed parsnips or submerges bison filet mignon in blueberry-port-wine sauce. His culinary ministrations earned his new restaurant the accolades of local press, including Straight.com's 2012 Golden Plate award for Best New Restaurant Outside Vancouver.

  • Chada Thai Fine Cuisine
    Chada Thai Fine Cuisine—named after the traditional headpiece in a Thai classical dance—prepares platefuls of pan-seared tiger prawns, chicken blanketed in curry sauce, and pad thai noodles. Around the dining room, elaborate headpieces adorn walls, and sculptures sit near the entrance, high-fiving patrons as they walk in.

  • FreshSlice Pizza
    In 1999, Ray Russell opened the first FreshSlice Pizza location in British Columbia. In the ensuing decade, that maiden franchise blossomed into a Canadian institution, growing to encompass more than 70 locations across the country. As is the case in any business, the key to FreshSlice's growth was a desire to put the customer first, an emphasis on pizza served fresh, and the development of healthy options such as multigrain dough and low-fat pies. Though the menus vary by location, the franchises offer gourmet combinations such as the barbecue chicken and classic staples such as pepperoni. They also let clients select toppings to create their own pizza or mix-and-match a pie by bringing together eight slices of a different type, an ability usually available only to rainbows.

  • Caffe Vibrato
    Since 1997, Big River Brewing Company has created its craft beers on the banks of the historic Fraser River. At the brewer's restaurants, you can pair their 8 distinctive brews with hearty pub food. In some cases, that pairing is taken care of for you?the chicken burger is marinated in Sidewheeler blond ale, and there are beer-braised onions, crisp bacon, cheddar cheese, and a special sauce on the Big River classic burger. Sauces are another specialty here?a cajun basil pesto amps up the chicken quesadilla; meanwhile, Frank's red hot sauce coats the brewhouse wings and the fingers of everyone who eats them. The Coquitlam location has an open kitchen, so you can watch at the chefs incorporate ales and lagers into their dishes and sauces.

  • Chad's West Coast Grill & Bar
    Growing up in Port Alberni, Chad says, he was "just as likely to meet a 30-pound salmon as a 300-pound logger." So his standard for fresh seafood is pretty high. To curate a menu that reached his lofty expectations, he hired a Red Seal chef and stocks the kitchens of both locations?in Courtenay and in Port Coquitlam?with sea-fresh ingredients. But fish tacos, lobster mac and cheese, and saffron salmon aren't the only dishes on the menu. Diners also order gourmet burgers, meatball hoagies, ribs, salads, and bacon-chorizo flatbread pizzas that are tossed to tables like Frisbees.

  • Orrange Kitchen + Bar
    Restaurateur Brian Orrange was tired of working for other people, so he went out on a limb and opened Orrange Kitchen + Bar, a casual joint centered on serving up fun and innovative fusion food. The menu runs the gamut of influences, with dishes ranging from Asian-inspired pineapple wok squid and ginger-soy chicken to house-made tortilla soup and comfort-food staples such as black Angus steak and mashed potatoes. There's even a nod to Canada with two versions of poutine, one for dinner and one for brunch.
