We were traveling home from Vancouver this one day and we figured we should stop halfway and grab some lunch. We stopped in Salmon Arm and basically drove to whatever was opened as it was a late Sunday afternoon. We stumbled into Home Restaurant which turns out to be a small chain in BC!
Once we sat down as there was a little bit of wait, they told us the soup of the day was their Seafood Chowder and coming from a place where I had lots of seafood, it was what I wanted! I ordered a bowl of their seafood chowder and although it wasn’t the heartiest, it was really filling and it hit the spot. I really enjoyed the flavours and texture of this chowder.
For the actual meal, I couldn’t get my mind away from having their Fish and Chips and this amazing classic specialty comes with 2 pieces of their fried fish with a mountain of fries and coleslaw! You really get a large meal for the small price! It was amazing as the fish was fresh and fried to perfection! Tender and juicy fish with a really light and crispy coating!
The last thing we ordered really didn’t go with my “seafood” theme, but it’s alright – it was pretty awesome anyway! We had their Schnitzel Champignon which was pork schnitzel with mushrooms and it is one of my husbands all time favorite schnitzel! This mushroom topping was made from fresh mushrooms and a gravy on top, with a side of mashed potatoes and more gravy! It was really amazing and the gravy made the vegetables seem extra amazing!
Overall, we left here feeling so full and satisfied we felt like that was the perfect meal to end our road trip! Sometimes just randomly stopping into places you find hidden gems and we lucked out here!
