Food & Drink

The Mile One Eating House is once again Pemberton's food and beverage dominator. The restaurant run by Randy Jones and Cindy Yu picked up eight awards this year. Of note is the fact that Mile One wrestled away a few categories that went to other establishments in the 2012 survey.

Mile One opened in March of 2011 and in 30 short months the restaurant is now Pemberton's preferred place to dine.

The Pony also received strong voter support in taking four categories. The food and beverage quality in Pemberton remains high. The new Solfeggio is too new to show in this poll. Look for it to find its wings in the next year and we'll see how it performs a year from now when the next Best of Pemberton vote launches.

Best restaurant


And so it begins for the Mile One Eating House and it starts right at the top. The eatery at the entrance to town, close to Highway 99, was voted Pemberton's favourite place to have a restaurant meal for the second year in a row.

Mile One has something for everyone in the whole family, one of the reasons the eatery is on top again this year. From mac'n cheese to steak, the menu has something for young and old.

The Pony polled second for best overall eatery in Pemberton. The Black Squirrel at The Meadows finished the voting only three votes behind The Pony.

Best value


The final tally for this category looked very much like the result for best overall. Mile One finished strong with The Pony narrowly edging out The Black Squirrel.

For the second year in a row Mile One gets the nod for serving good value. Author, journalist and blogger Bill Corbett of Calgary, declared last year that Mile One has the best comfort food. He ordered the Southern Comfort macaroni and cheese when he visited and was so impressed that he mentioned it on the blog he writes about eateries he visits around Alberta, B.C. and Washington State.

Here's what he says about the dish on his blog: "Oh, my goodness. I rarely eat mac and cheese, and I may never order it again. I've been ruined."

Best wine list

The Pony

This was a close vote. Only seven votes separated The Pony in first place from The Wood in third. Mile One Eating House polled in between.

Wednesday night is wine night at The Pony. Celebrating hump day with a glass of Fort Berens 33 Camels or a bottle of Chardonnay from Liberty School is the way to hurdle the middle of the week and prepare for Thursday and Friday.

Pair the wine with award-winning pizza or something else from the menu to set the remainder of the week up nicely.
