To my surprise and delight, I was recently declared “Canada’s Food.ee of the Year” by Vacay.ca and Food.ee.
Being picked by the Vacay.ca editors and journalists (including Vacay.ca and Top Restaurants in Canada Founder Adrian Brijbassi, Vacay.ca Deputy Editor Rod Charles, Vacay.ca Family Travel Columnist Jody Robbins and Chair of the Top Restaurants in Canada, Renee Suen) as the winner of this contest, out of more than 400 entries, was such an honour!
So what did I win?
Round-trip airfare for two to St. John’s, Newfoundland & Labrador, a four-night luxury hotel stay, and dinner for myself and a guest at Raymonds, voted in 2014 and 2015 as the top restaurant in Canada by the Vacay.ca Voting Academy!
I decided to take my twin sister, Jessica, with me. We left August 6th and returned August 10th. It was an amazing trip!
If you have never visited St John’s, NL — go! But bring a fleece (or two), yes, even in August. It was cold. However, we did really luck out with one hot, sunny day, which also happened to be the day we did a boat tour.
