we took a day trip to Radium, BC as I wanted to go on a road trip to anywhere but staying in our city. I forgot this city closed early and by the time we got here, it was dinner time and a lot of places were closed. We were able to get a table on the patio of Helna’s Strube and it was perfect!
Once we ordered, on this chilly autumn’s evening they brought out a beautiful and warm Bread Basket which was perfect. I’m not sure if it was as warm as I think the bread was as my fingers were kind of frozen already.. and if you know me, more often than not my fingers are cold! So, this was already amazing as is!
I just ordered right off the menu as my hubby ordered their special, which was an awesome deal! He ended up getting a salad and dessert with his meal for just a bit more. Of course, I ate the dessert as I always claim I need the sweets to keep me sweet. Anyway, I ordered their Trout “Müllerin“, a generous sized trout pan-fried in a lemon parsley butter, served with rice. The skin was super amazing, thin and crispy and the trout was perfectly cooked, not fishy at all.
As mentioned, my better half ordered the special and it came with Baby Green Salad which is something that looked beautiful and not overdressed of a salad.
His main meal was their Mushroom Schntzel or the “Jaeger Schnitzel” which is breaded pork loin in a white wine mushroom cream sauce, served with spätzle. This was an amazing special and just because it was one, the portion size was still enormous!
Then, just when you think you’re done… the dessert course! Always make room for dessert after a great meal! This one was their Coupe Strawberry, a simple, easy and delicious dessert!
Overall, this was a fantastic and casual place to be. The food was stunning and tasty, the service was perfect. We definitely enjoyed ourselves at Helna’s and as everything was perfect, we’d recommend spending an evening here!
