Fuego - Yellowknife and a bit of Iqaluit

'bout time we touched on YK food. Just ate yesterday at Fuego in Yellowknife with staff andwas very impressed. For those who know YK, it is in the old Office resto spot and is apparently run by the Old Time Landing crew. Good selection of northern food including the muskabou burger (musk ox and caribou), but I chose the chowder of the sea and the prime rib sandwich special. Amongst the best chowders I have had anywhere. The prime rib was well prepared, had a bit of the tough stuff, but I would not hesitate to order it again. The wraps my staff had were all great I am told. We saw wonderful looking fish and chips come out of the kitchen. The only thing not to my liking was the salad dressing, oddly spicy. Service was friendly and effective.

On the subject of Yellowknife, the best fish restaurant in the country in the view of all members of my family is Bullocks in the old town.

Sadly though the new Armenian resto closed....I am advised thet mama just could not deal wth the workload. A real shame as it was fantastic.

Le Frolic remains a very expensive, but consistant favourite.

There are really good places to eat in YK and I hope people will kick in their opinions.

As an aside, one great place to eat in Iqaluit , Nunavut remains the Water's Edge in Iqaluit. The Frob remains good most of the time too. They try hard and the portions are friggin huge!
