On the road: Terrace

We’ve been back from northern B.C. for about a week now, so I’m obviously not doing great at staying caught up on my posts. Either way, I wanted to make sure I included a mention of a great little restaurant A. and I stopped at in Terrace.

Our first night there we’d planned to visit an Indian restaurant on the outskirts of town called Harayana’s, located in the Kalum Motel. Unfortunately, the woman who makes all of the food was at a family wedding in India, so they were closed.

Those who recommended it to us said the food is spectacular, but the service is very slow, so order a drink and expect to wait. If I’m in town again, it’s the first place I plan to try.

Instead, we ate crap at the hotel restaurant.

The good eats came the next day for lunch, when we met one of A.’s clients at a Mexican place we’d heard about: Don Diegos.

The restaurant is in a cheery yellow building on Kalum Street which, thankfully, had air-conditioning! It was in the mid-30s and unbearably hot outside when we dined there.

The menu is written on a board on the wall and changes with each meal. I ordered a chicken quesadilla for $12. It came relatively quickly with a nicely dressed salad and a small cup containing a mixture of chickpeas, flat-leaf parsley, bell peppers and onion in some kind of vinaigrette.

The quesadilla was tasty, with a tongue-tingling kick from hot peppers. A. had a quiche that she enjoyed and her client also had the quesadilla.

A. also had a lemon tart for dessert, which was delicious with its puckery filling and cornmeal crust. The whipped cream on top balanced it perfectly. Word is they make all of their desserts at Don Diegos fresh every morning. It sure tastes that way!
