THE ULTIMATE OKANAGAN
Days are getting longer, we are seeing more sunshine in February. There is definitely a brighter future to be looking towards to. Our blog is dedicated to discovering new places and activities around Okanagan, and we will be covering just that.
There is Dine Around Interior BC event is going till March 7, 2021. Participating Dine Around restaurants will offer three course menus costing $15, $25, $35, $45 or $55 per person giving locals and visitors the chance to channel their inner foodie, try new menu items and new restaurants! With COVID-19 still much apart of our lives, some restaurants will be offering the option to ‘take-out’ their Dine Around menu.
Places that we can recommend: Summerhill Winery Bistro, The Lookout at Gray Monk, Browns Social House.
We went to Blu Saffron Bistro at Volcanic Hills Winery. Due to COVID-19 safety protocols it is recommended to make a reservation prior to visiting. This allows restaurant to plan seating and not to turn away customers when they reach capacity.
Blu Saffron Bistro is located on the right hand side of the Volcanic Hills Winery and customers have to enter through a painted metal door. We even questioned ourselves if this is the actual entrance, not a back door of the bistro. Once we opened the door, we saw lit up bistro entrance. The hostess greeted us, confirmed our reservation and welcomed to a window table. Blu Saffron Bistro isn't big inside, about 6 tables all together. It has an atmosphere of a high school cafeteria with the radio music in the background.
We ordered Falafel Sub, Truffle Parmesan Fries, Chicken Pappardelle.
The chef nailed Truffle Parmesan Fries -so delicious, there was not a fry left behind. The service was prompt and friendly.
Chicken Papardelle was good too. I guess I should add that we did not order wine, maybe it was our mistake.
Falafel Club in GF option showed up as two falafels with a creamy sauce. Falafels were fresh made and tasty. This would be a good choice for people who don't want to eat too much.
Overall positive experience dining at blu Saffron.
