Seattle etc

Postby Prune » Wed Feb 06, 2008 1:18 pm

I'm going "treking" in Canada this summer (woohoo!) for 10 days. We will not be camping but staying in lodges and that means all meals will be eaten in cafes/restaurants - I'm dreading that bit and wonder if I'll be able to eat decent food (I hate anything too processed and I'm not keen on fried stuff).

I've got two questions:

We're setting off from Seattle - does anyone know health food shops where I could buy bars and transportable stuff to snack on?

Are there good places you can recommend in the following places?

Kamloops
Yoho National Park
Banff NP
Jasper NP
Caribou Country - not sure where
Vancouver
Seattle again

Thanks!

For Seattle:
You can go to Pizza Pie (all vegan pizza place) in the university area (google it). Right next to it happens to be an all vegan convenient store called sidecar where you can go stock up on food bars and other vegan stuff.
OR, you can go to mighty O donuts (all vegan) and stock up there. It will make you fat and happy.

In Vancouver I ended up alot at subway :?

Lucky you! I hope you have fun :)

I think Vancouver (and Canada) is excellent for vegan food.

There are a few guides out there, here's a couple of links

http://www.happycow.net/north_america/c ... vancouver/

http://www.korvus.com/vancouvervegan/dining/

We mainly ate in Chinese veg places, there are many and even the omni place we went to near our hotel (Hon's Wun-Tun House) offered excellent options.

If all else fails there are a quite a few health food stores and there is of course Yves in most supermarkets we visited.

Many some locals can comment on the best restaurants off the guides in the links above?

Thanks everyone!

We're probably going stay round the university in Seattle so that's cool!

I checked out a few restaurants in the park and it looks like i'll be ok.

Can't wait!

In that case go to Araya's in the university district and have the tofu laab. Go to Gordito's on N.85th for great mexican food too.
