Mongolie grill

Mongolie grill

If you are looking for a meal out with friends and can’t decide what you want maybe now is the time to try Mongolie Grill.  As long as everyone likes stir fry you’ll have a good night.  If you have never been before you basically get a bowl each and then proceed to fill up on your favorite stir fry choices, veg, meats, sauces, whatever  and the chefs cook it up in front of you.  Bottom line if you don’t like what you get then you shouldn’t have chose it.

Currently if you live or work in Whistler then you can get a locals card and get 50% off your meal (providing you purchase a drink).  Only one person at the table needs the card and everyone can get the discount.

On my last visit I discovered that I can eat 1kg of stir fry, gluttony eh!

Elements Urban Tapas review

Previously Elements has been mentioned on the blog before, but the post was by my other half, I’d never even been to Elements before today.

It is most definitely worth a second mention as it now stands as my prefered breakfast spot in Whistler.   I had a hunger for french toast and Elements didnt disappoint.  In fact I kind of got greedy and got not just a side plate of fruit but the full fruit breakfast to go with the main, the waitress was slightly confused as to why 2 people were ordering 3 breakfasts but it a ll tasted great and I’m glad we did, even if I did look greedy. 

Even though I was stuffed when I saw the people at the table next to us about to tuck into a mean looking eggs benny I was ready to start eating breakfast all over again, in order that I could walk out, rather than be rolled out I opted to try it another time.

Another Whistler picture

Yesterdays snow is melting away and warmer temps are predicted for the remainder of the week, the village will be bare again soon.  The mountainside should hopefully hold onto to what we have and start to build the base for an awesome season to come.

Spotted this pic on the Prior website and thought I should share;
