What a surprise!  Waiting for a ferry in Powell River that would take us back to Texada Island, my two friends and I decided to stop in for lunch at the Thaidal Zone Restaurant.  The Thai food was amazing!

Thaidal Zone Restaurant's - Yellow CurryI would highly recommend ordering the Gaeng Kari, also known as the Yellow Curry Dish. It had a lot of fresh vegetable’s that were cooked perfectly.  That is, the veggies were not to hard or soft, but just right.  In this Thai curry dish there was yellow curry paste, potatoes, onions, pineapples, red peppers, carrots, and coconut milk.  There were also pieces of broccoli which weren’t in the menu item, yet I didn’t mind.   As well, you could choose to have this dish with no added meats, or beef, pork or chicken.  As I rarely eat pork, I chose chicken, and it was delicious!

This lunch dish came with a spring roll, and a naturally sweeten celery based soup broth.  The spring roll was deep fried, and I chose not to eat it, but it didn’t go to waste as my good friend enjoyed it.

Portion sizes were very generous!  I did end up taking home quite a bit of my curry, but my hungry partner who was back on Texada Island enjoyed the leftovers later that night. This Thai Restaurant was a real surprise to find near the ferries and in Powell River!

POSITIVES

Super delicious yellow Curry dish with tons of different vegetables! I loved the pieces of pineapple too.

NEGATIVES

The take-out containers were styrofoam which isn’t the best for the environment.

Tuna Tataki Salad plus

I'm in love with the Tuna Tataki Salad at Coto's! The Tuna is lightly seared with some spices added to it, and Avocado slices are placed decoratively on top of the salad. The salad dressing is made with Ponzu sauce which is delightful on your tastebuds, and doesn't weigh the salad down, as the dressing is quite light. This salad appetizer is enough to share with two people, or it would make a perfect light meal for one person.

Being a health-focused foodie, I’m always curious what ingredients go into making my meal I’m about to eat; whether I’m dining in, or when I’m dining out. I’m a curious type of person, who always wants to know the ‘why’ and not just the ‘what’… Restaurants practicing environmental stewardship while offering high quality dishes are my favourite dining-out places.
