One leaves Rebar Modern Food undecided on what was most nourishing: the fresh, delicious food or the irresistibly delightful atmosphere hanging in the air. Established by chef and entrepreneur Audrey Aisterberg, Rebar Modern Food took Victoria’s dining scene by storm with its acid colours, cooking tools used as decorative elements and flowery tabletops. Here is where vegetarians have their revenge – meat is altogether banned from the menu, while there are options for the vegetarians’ strict cousins, the vegans. Huevos rancheros, fish tacos, eggs Kurosawa and all the other scrumptious choices available are made with fresh, wholesome, local herbs and veggies.

Located inside the premises of Victoria’s hotel The Fairmont Empress, The Bengal Lounge offers a dining experience impossible to find anywhere else in the city. The establishment is best-known for its trademark buffets of curry dishes, distinguished by such superior taste that it makes up for the somewhat limited choice of options. But what is most unusual about the Bengal Lounge is its striking décor and atmosphere. A tropical theme is carried throughout the entire, luxurious venue, which creates a setting so warming and relaxing that guests tend to hang around after dinner to bask in the atmosphere, perhaps indulging in a few lush drinks.
