CAN: Bear's Paw Bakery

"Baking the world a better place!"

Bear's Paw Bakery is a popular spot to have a quick bite in Jasper, Canada. As my BFF and I were staying at Jasper Downtown Hostel that doesn't provide breakfast, we dropped by Bear's Paw Bakery in the morning before taking Jasper SkyTram and conquering the summit of Whistlers Mountain.

CAN: Syrahs of Jasper

Upscale dinner featuring boar, bison and elk meat!

Boasting itself in offering "Jasper's most innovative cuisine" with a variety of wild game dishes, Syrahs of Jasper is an intimate restaurant with 15 tables. My BFF and I had the most elaborate meal there throughout the trip, which also turned out to be the most expensive of all.

CAN: Lou Lou's Breakfast & Pizzeria

Have you tried 'donair' pizza before?

Lou Lou's Breakfast & Pizzeria is conveniently located near Jasper Downtown Hostel where my BFF and I stayed at for 4D3N. We dropped by the eatery once for breakfast. Besides that, we also ordered a pizza there on one of the evenings after a long walk from Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge.

CAN: The Canadian VIA2 (Sleeper Plus) [Dinner]

Dijon mustard played an important role for dinner!

It felt like it was only a moment ago that my BFF and I had our lunch. As we'd be alighting at Jasper, we were advised to have our dinner from 5.30pm to 6.30pm, and we did. Even though we weren't hungry, we were really satisfied with the dishes offered for dinner.

CAN: The Canadian VIA2 (Sleeper Plus) [Lunch]

I'd vouch for the rich chocolate brownie at the end of the meal!

The hours of the morning passed by quickly. When the call for the second seating for lunch was made, my BFF and I made our way to the dining car. Prior reservation is required for lunch and dinner to avoid queues and allow for leisurely meal time for each seating.

CAN: The Canadian VIA2 (Sleeper Plus) [Breakfast]

Fragrant banana pecan pancakes with pure maple syrup!

The highlight of my adventure in Canada was the train ride from Vancouver to Jasper onboard The Canadian that took approximately 20 hours. My BFF and I booked upper and lower berth seats in the Sleeper Plus Class cabin. I believe there are usually two meals served on the Vancouver-Jasper route: dinner and breakfast.

CAN: Longliner Seafoods

Do you prefer candied or smoked salmon jerky?

To some of us, candied salmon may sound strange. Before trying it, I was also skeptical about how it'd taste like. Curiosity killed the cat, but satisfaction brought it back after buying some from Longliner Seafoods, one of the original tenants of Granville Island Public Market since its opening in 1979.

CAN: Miku

Deliciously innovative Japanese cuisine by chef Kazuya Matsuoka!

Overlooking the scenic Vancouver waterfront, Miku has been attracting a huge crowd of locals and foreigners alike since its inception in 2008. The lunch menu features mouth-watering dishes that aren't too exorbitant, yet not compromising on the quality of the ingredients used.
