Oriental Supermarket Soba Noodles, Rice Paper, Mung Bean Threads, Miso Mix, Thai & Indian Curry Pastes, Star Anise in bulk & more. If the Oriental Supermarket doesn't have that Far East selection you're searching for I'm not sure who will. A sushi & bubble tea bar is a fairly recent addition.
Valoroso A favourite gourmet food store with obvious Italian influence. A vast array of cheese & meats, imported Italian goodies, canned goods and pasta. If you're in need of a refresher, order an espresso at the back and a sandwich to go.
Cedar Creek Estate Winery ~ Vineyard Terrace Some of the valley's best wine is paired with Chef Geoffrey Couper's inventive, enthusiastic creations focusing on local -and- a gorgeous view. Among its many accolades, Cedar Creek was named "Winery of the Year" in 2002 and 2005.
Mission Hill Family Estate Winery ~ The Terrace Another incredible winery dining experience. Chef Michael Allemeier makes admirable use of local ingredients & creates locally inspired menues. If you have the pockets and the palate consider the "Chef's Table" which includes a private tour, tastings and a seven course meal paired with Mission Hill Wines.
Bouchons Bistro A cozy and casual French Bistro in downtown Kelowna. Thoughtful wine list and frites to die for.
Fresco Always my first recommendation to friends and out of town guests. Fresco is a world class restaurant in the heart of the Okanagan. Chef Rod Butters creates seasonally inspired menus & relies heavily on our local produce. Audrey Surrao masters the wine list & insures service so every experience a wonderful one.
La Boulangerie A little slice of France in the Lower Mission. We LOVE this place. Authentic baguettes, great sandwiches, dreamy quiche, mille feuille, croissants, chocolate brioche.... MMmmm!
Ricardo's Mediterranean Restaurant Eating at Ricardo's is like eating at a good friend's home. A good friend who can cook! Tucked away in Lake Country (turn at the big boat off of 97) Sue and Ricardo serve up some of the best Italian comfort food I've enjoyed. A table with the oversized and cushy chairs is a must.
Siam Orchid Simply the best Thai food in Kelowna. The chef and co-owner is from Thailand & knows her way around the kitchen. Lucky for us.
Spoonstruck Zu & Angela serve up some tasty curries & delish desserts in this urban little cafe on Kelowna's quiet Tutt Street
The Grateful Fed We love this funky deli/cafe and owner Kamel who serves up the best smoked meat outside of Montreal. His Turkey Club is simply the best in town and even if you're new to the Fed, you'll feel welcome in no time.
Waterfront Wines An urban wine bar that makes us locals feel like we're in the big city again! Fun food, great wines & cocktails, funky decor & very good service. It's fast becoming a favourite hangout of ours.
South Okanagan & Naramata Eats
Vanilla Pod Inventive & delicious food & an urban chic setting in the heart of Summerland
Theo's Restaurant I wish Penticton was closer! I've only been to Theo's when it's packed. But I hear a full house is the norm. Theo's is lively, fresh & savoury -- just about everything a good Greek restaurant should be.
