Once we finished our Zodiac tour of the Broken Group Islands, we headed to dinner at Norwoods on our last night in Ucluelet.

We started things off with the ‘local seafood trio’ which included crab chowder, tempura prawns and grilled octopus (which was my favourite):

I couldn’t resist the Pumpkin & Cinnamon Crème Brûlée for desert. I then finished my night off with a Goodnight:

Norwoods
Grand Marnier, Baileys, Frangelico, Steamed Milk, Nutmeg, Orange Twist

Indeed it was a good night at Norwoods. Everyone in my tour group agreed that Norwoods was the unexpected and stellar food highlight of the trip to Vancouver Island.

Related posts from the rest of the tour of Vancouver Island include caving in the Horne Lake Caves and surfing in Ucluelet.

    Now I know how to make the “Goodnight” drink. Thanks for listing the ingredients – it was delicious!
