Nanaimo/Qualicum/Ucluelet Vegetarian Options

Why don't you drive one half hour further north on the upper Island highway to Courtenay to the Atlas Cafe on 6th street for excellent vegetarian plus regular menu. They have been there for 20 years and their food is excellent...breakfast...lunch and dinner.
Their website is atlas cafe.ca
Check it out...it is worth the extra drive...guaranteed! We have been regular customers for many years.

Lingham's Chili Sauce

In a small busy vegetable store in White Rock I found around a dozen bottles of Lingham's Chili Sauce. The best before date was March 2014. I bought one bottle and had some with dinner last night and it tasted great with a good kick.
Do you think the chilies in it will make it last beyond the best before date?

Fire roasted tomatoes at a reasonable price?

I buy them at SaveOn, Semihamoo Mall South Surrey. They are in the Mexican section....called Pastene Fire Roasted Diced Tomatoes...398ml.
Can't remember the price but they must have been reasonable or woudn't have purchased them.

McCormick Mapleine Crescent Brand

I have used this product for many years to make syrup for pancakes and waffles. It has literally disappeared from all the grocers shelves.
It is available online from Amazon.com but not Amazon.ca.
Has anyone ever used it and is still purchasing it on the lower mainland?
Thanks

Real Scottish smoked kippers?

I don't think you will ever find the kippers you are talking about in B.C. I know exactly and have enjoyed the big fat ones while in Scotlland. The frozen whole kippers that Aberdeen Neptune produce are head on..split to lay flat..bone in and are in a 335gr green box with a picture of kippers on the front of it. They are the closest thing that I can find to the real ones and we have enjoyed them for a few years.

Real Scottish smoked kippers?

Just curious did you purchase the large smoked kippers at the Celtic Treasure Chest and were they Neptune whole kippers in a green box?

Excelentes tortillas ..... from Manitoba ?!?

Found La Cocina today at Buy Low Foods on Johnston Rd
in South Surrey. I agree they are the best! Super thin and not too salty.

Fish sauce

Our favourite is Viet Hu'o'ng Three Crab Fish Sauce. It has a picture of three crabs on the label...a little more expensive but just the right amount of fish/salty flavour.

Knife for cutting raw chicken?

An excellent knife for using with raw chicken is Victorinox Fibrox Flexible Blade Boning Knife 6". I have one and it is great to cut through the leg and thigh of chicken and also trimming the breast meat from the bone. I highly recommend it.
