Did we ever get a treat on Friday. Kelly offered to ‘do’ Friday dinner and sent us the link to Poke Page 1 and asked us to read the menu and tell her what our choice was.
Don read it over and chose the Honolulu Dream. I, on the other hand, read and re-read the menu and decided to make my own up. This was amazing. I chose the white rice, crab, corn, tomato and sesame seeds and told her to pick any other vegetable she knows I would eat. Kelly also had the Honolulu Dream.
When she came in with the dinner, I could not believe my eyes. First of all, it was beautiful to just look at them all. Mine had a few additions. She changed it to real crab, shrimp, and cucumber added to it. It was so fresh and crisp.
The portion size is huge by the way. Okay, I admit it…I ate the whole thing.
I have never had a salad that good from a commercial venue. If you haven’t tried it, go and give it a try. There are three of them – Poke Page 1, 2 and 3. In a word – YUM!
Yesterday we drove into Cedar to buy a few items at 49th Parallel and on the way home, Don asked me if I wanted to go to Cranberry Arms and share some Fish and Chips. I have mentioned before that we have found these to be the best in Nanaimo and area and I was not about to say no.
It had been closed for awhile, probably due to the length of time we have had the Covid virus drag on, and were delighted to see the Open sign. When we went in, we were greeted by the friendliest gentleman and after showing him the Covid passports, we sat down and we didn’t even hesitate for a second to place our order.
Of course, we had our regular beverage and asked to share a 2 piece Fish and Chips. Well….it came out looking like two individual orders. Each plate had two pieces of fish, chips, and one of the best coleslaws given at any restaurant anywhere. Piping hot and super great fries.
We were told he is the new “owner/manager” (I’m guessing) and I suggested to him that, due to the fact they have a new Chef, they do not change one thing on the Fish and Chip plate. He said they would never change what works. Hurray!
Glad you are Open and we will be back again and again and again.
