Time for some good snow! None in Boston but plenty at Whistler. If you are lucky enough to be heading to Whistler here are a few quick comfort bites.
The first stop is a place I visited long long time ago during my first ski trip to Whistler where I inevitably ended up in crutches. However my injuries were definitely a blessing in disguise as I had an opportunity to explore the village. Hidden behind a bookstore I stumbled on Gone Whistler Village Eatery
by following the amazing smell of bread and soup seeping out into the streets.
Minestrone soup with warm thick multi-grain bread. The soup was as good as I remembered and a perfect for soaking up with the thick warm bread.
Mr Z. had the cheese covered soup. Unfortunately this was a little bit watered down.
Apart from soup you can also get a quick bite from the poutine stand close to the Whistler ski lifts. Despite the line the service is fast.
Although I thought a combination of hot dog and poutine might be the best of both worlds....the original poutine (fries with cheese curd and covered in gravy - see Saus
) is much better.
