Cranberry Pub, Cedar, Vancouver Island

The pandemic has taken its toll for sure on people, their mindset and trying to continually cope with the world as it now is. Well, after cleaning our carport deck with power washing everything, getting rid of yard stuff, carpet pieces etc. at the recycling centre I opted to treat us all to lunch.

This is a treat as we have not been in a restaurant for ages and we had never been here before, so putting on our face masks, we went in.

It is the perfect neighborhood pub. Quaint in design. TV on every wall and each one with a different sport event. One was hockey, another golf, basketball on another and the fourth wall had car racing. There you go – something for everyone.

We each ordered a beverage and opted for their bacon/cheese burger (for 2 of us) and Don had the chicken strips/fries.

Our server was a delight. She helped us with the menu, what was great and when she was done she exclaimed everything on the menu was great.

She was right. The drinks were good and the food was really hot when it arrived and all was mighty tasty. We will return for sure when life is a little more consistent.

Rhythm Chinese Restaurant, Nanaimo

We have been trying to find a really good Chinese Restaurant since moving to the Island. We have tried those we chose, several times, and each time the taste was off a little or the quantity was lacking, or not hot. except for yesterday.

After having a very special day, we were late coming home and decided to order Chinese food to celebrate. Don found one called “Rhythm Chinese Food”. WOW!

We ordered Lemon Chicken, Sweet and Sour Meatballs, Chinese Chow Mein, Chop Suey, Tempura type Prawns. It came with all the sauces in individual dishes and the only thing missing was the fortune cookies. The food was so hot, we were blowing on it so we could eat it right away. Yummy, to say the very least.

This was, for us, the very best Nanaimo has to offer and if you haven’t tried them, please do. You won’t be disappointed.
