Victoria Bird and Sea Lion Tour
"October through to April is still a little early to see the resident pods of killer whales or Orcas as they are still out in the open Pacific Ocean hunting salmon. However because nature is unpredictable there is always a chance that these majestic marine mammals will be in the area when you are out on your adventure. You might also be lucky enough to see some members of the transient killer whale population who are also known to swim in the waters near regardless of the chances of seeing an Orca there is a tremendous experience awaiting you. California sea lions weighing in at 500 pounds (225 kilos) lie on the rocks catching the last rays of the sunshine after a hard day of fishing.

The Noodle Box Tips (6)

The Noodle Box: HOT! HOT! HOT!

Southeast Asian food. The black bean noodles were incredible. The spice levels go from Mild to Suicide! I just wish we had a Noodle Box in San Diego!

Favorite Dish Black Bean Noodles. Great taste of black bean sauce, veggies; spice level I chose was spicier than I thought: Hot

The Noodle Box: Busy Noodle Bar

Let me first say, the noodles here were great. Having said that I would also add that, on this day, they were extremely inefficient at getting the food out to the waiting customers. We saw several dishes getting cold on the counter because customers didn't hear that their names were called. In other cases confused customers picked up the wrong orders. The food took a while and it seemed like the staff was a bit overwhelmed. Still, the noodles were delicious.

Favorite Dish Black bean and garlic stir fry.

The old spaghetti factory: Do you like spaghetti?

This restaurant has been open since 30 years ago and is a must-eat-in place while in Victoria. Besides pasta, the menu also includes chicken and seafood. Feel free to browse around even if you don't want to eat there, inside of it you will find antiques and furnishings like a living museum of Canada's colourful past.

Favorite Dish Spaghetti with mushrooms sauce

The Noodle Box: Stirfry Heaven!

The Noodle Box used to be a street vendor but in the last couple years they moved indoors to a location right on the outskirts of Chinatown. They are a TAKE-OUT restaurant- there are a handful of tables but they do not provide knives, forks or table service.

Noodle Box serves a variety of stir-fries and curries in cute little takeout containers. I happen to have their menu right in front of me so I can list their different meals:

- Tom Yum Soup
- Singapore Cashew Curry
- Cambodian Jungle Curry
- Thai Green Curry
- Malaysian Lamb Curry
- Black Bean and Garlic Stirfry
- Thai Style Chow Mein Stirfry
- Teriyake Box Stirfry
- Spicy Peanut Noodle Box Stirfry
- Noodle Box Chili Plum Stirfry
- Malay Style Fried Rice Stirfry
- Kids Noodle Box

All meals can be ordered mild, medium or hot, and most are adaptable to chicken, pork, tofu, prawns or a combination (prices vary). Most can also be served with rice in place of noodles. If I had to narrow down my favorites, I would go for the Spicy Peanut Noodle Box and the Singapore Cashew Curry, both mild.

UPDATE: Noodle Box has opened a second location! Fantastic! Located at 818 Douglas Street, this new location has more room for dining inside the restaurant, but still doesn't provide table service or utensils. They've also added a website!

The Noodle Box: Fast, Fresh and Fairly Frugal

This new and trendy spot features a variety of Southeast Asian noodle dishes as well as soup. All food is served in take-out containers (including soup) and with plastic utensils. Watch your meal being prepared in one of the three woks over a high-intensity gas flame or people watch from the front window seats. The small seating area is abuzz with the sizzle of cooking and full of the aromas of coconut milk, Thai curry, soya sauce and spices. It's a hopping spot and you'll have to wait for a seat at busy times.

Favorite Dish Any of the dishes are good but I like the ones with a bit of heat (meaning spice not temperature) and coconut milk.

The Old Spaghetti Factory: Not bad at all

I heard that there is a chain of restaurants with this name around Canada, but what a shame there is no one in Saskatoon.

Favorite Dish Larry's favorite french onion soup was just perfect.
