I like to think of Victoria B.C. as a slice of Britain in our own backyard. Everyone knows about the Empress Hotel in the Inner Harbour, but did you know about the floating restaurants?
Walk the path that runs along the waterfront, or take one of the little ferries to Fisherman's Wharf to find Puerto Vallarta Amigos, a food truck, which opened its first floating location there earlier this year. Tourism Victoria reports that the taco joint serves up quesadillas, tortas and Baja-style fish tacos for $7-$12. Open from 11 a.m. until dusk. There's also the floating Fish Store, with a gluten-free menu, soups and meals for $3.75-$15.
On the north side of Ship's Point Wharf, Salt Spring Tours offers visitors a dockside "smoke and float'' take-away lunch service from their boat, Pride of Victoria. Meals priced from $6 to $10.
