recommended food in whistler
 
Can you recommend any good food items at ski après spots in whistler? *I just read reviews for most of the ski après spots in whistler on yelp and it seems like most of the reviewers complained about bad food at most of the ski après spots. *Based on the reviews, GLC seems like a pretty safe bet but I'd like to avoid going to the same restaurant more than once when I visit.

So can you recommend any good food items at any of the other ski après spots in whistler from your personal experience?

I'd say stick with basics -- stuff that it's really hard to screw up. I've never had a good restaurant meal in Whistler. They're not terrible -- just not good enough to make you feel good about the prices you're charged. Even the Spaghetti house -- how the fuck do you screw up pasta?

thanks donutz - your feedback confirms what I've read and your comment about the spaghetti house was funny :)

Sounds like you've been to Whistler a lot. I'm sure you've eaten at GLC at least once or twice. Have you eaten anything at GLC you would recommend?

I'd like to steer clear of burgers - not healthy and I'm especially trying to avoid fries....

I'm sorry, I guess I'm a dirty little unhealthy burger and fries eating grub :rolleyes:

I guess another problem is that burgers are so common - I can get a good one anywhere. When I'm traveling I like to try something more unique, maybe an area specialty, burgers are bottom of my list. And I always eat fries with burgers which make it difficult to stay in shape.

I get to whistler once or twice a year. My wife and daughter mostly control the restaurant selection. I just endure.

I'm a slave to burgers too. And pizza, and subs, and KFC, and... But I'm active enough to burn it off. I understand about trying different foods in different locations. If you're ever in Port Moody go to Pajos and get their fish and chips. Best on the planet. But I don't think Whistler really has a 'signature food'. They just have a bunch or refueling stations. I've been wracking my brains trying to think of one single memorable meal in Whistler, and I got nothing.

thanks donutz - I'll be staying at Nita Lake Lodge which is a top 3 hotel on tripadvisor. *They have 3 restaurants there - fix, cure and aura. *I think charcuterie plates is one of their specialties which I really, really like for ski après. Also their restaurant aura is supposed to be well-regarded I think. *So I think I'll probably make my rounds to all the usual suspects but like you said - only for basic refueling and save my food money for the hotel...
