For the last dinner in Victoria, we were walking around downtown and tried to decide where to go. After one hour or so, Collin suggested why not going to the place where we went last time. It was almost 8:30pm on holiday, so we hoped that restaurant still opened.

Pagliacci’s is on a quiet Broad street, between Fort and Broughton street, at the centre of downtown Victoria. The place was introduced in a TV show called “You Gotta Eat Here” of Food Network.

We ordered from their regular dinner menu and special sheet.

While we were searching restaurants, this place got Collin’s attention. Next day, we went there for quick snack before having dinner.

Le Petit Dakar is a small Senegalese restaurant, more likely a cafe or a place where you order food to go. It is located behind The Empress Hotel and close to bus depot.

Although we wanted to eat small stuff, such as chicken wings, it was almost closing time and there weren’t much choice. So, we ordered veggie samosas.

The night before, I was searching more restaurants in Victoria for lunch. There were a few that came, and when I showed this restaurant menu, Collin told me that this is a restaurant outside with big container where one of Top Chef Canada contestants works.

Red Fish Blue Fish is an outdoor restaurant at pier and serves Tacones that is taco-cone. It is in a walking distance from Victoria Information Centre. There are a few seating under tents, but they don’t take any reservations.

We ordered from their Tacones menu.
