We’ll start this list with the most important meal of the day: Breakfast at O’Shea’s.
Fuel up for Jasper activities with a build-your-own skillet at O’Shea’s. Hot, crisp potato chunks were topped with my choice of nine ingredients (I opted for bacon and tomatoes) and layered with melted cheddar. Eggs (that I ordered poached soft) were the crowning ingredient. Ah, comfort food at its flavourful best.
Take it Slow
For tender and tasty meat, low and slow is the way to go. At Olive Bistro, Darryl Huculak marinates his free-range organic lamb for a full day to infuse the tomato Dijon flavours. He then roasts the shanks for six hours for fall-off-the-bone results. Does slow cooking drive you wild? At Fiddle River Restaurant their elk stroganoff is braised for five hours.
Ice, Ice, Buffet
Two new restaurants that overlook the Athabasca Glacier at the Columbia Icefield Glacier Discovery Centre offer fresh complements to mountain adventure.
Book Evenings on the Ice for tasty combo of an Ice Explorer ride, appies on the glacier and dinner at Altitude.
