Wolf in the Fog, Tofino, British Columbia: Best New Restaurant in Canada award How is it that a community that barely reaches 2,000 people manages to produce so many stellar restaurants? Our Canadian Living Test Kitchen, the pickiest foodies of them all, willingly make pilgrimages to Tofino's award-winning Wickaninnish Inn just for their trademark granola (click here for the recipe). And not long ago I shared with you a series of mouth-watering photos of five amazing West Coast dishes from SoBo Restaurant in Tofino. And now we add one more award-winning eatery to the list of Tofino's best restaurants: Wolf in the Fog just won the Air Canada enRoute's Best New Restaurant in Canada for 2014. Food writer Andrew Braithwaite captures the essence of Wolf in the Fog in his citation:
“After a long day of surfing on the extreme west coast of Vancouver Island, where rainforest meets ocean, you stumble up a flight of stairs and into a soaring cedar-clad room above a surf shop. You're greeted by a prowling wolf assembled from driftwood – but not a lick of fog in the house tonight – and Etta James howling on the stereo. It's the kind of place that stops you in your tracks.Here's your preview of the award-winning Wolf in the Fog:
