I went to Vancouver Island alone today in order to attend to a few odds and ends. During my meanderings in downtown Courtenay, I walked into a hip restaurant called Atlas, that was host this last weekend to the CBC radio show, North by Northwest. Being alone, and hoping for quick service during the busy lunch hour crowd, I sat at the bar and ended up having one of the best lunches in a very long time. I had the Middle Eastern wrap with a Caesar salad, the wrap had fried falafel, peanut sauce, avocados, and many other niceties. I told my bartender it was the best wrap I'd ever had, and I wasn't exaggerating. The next time you're in the area, head to 6th St. and you won't be disappointed. Go for the wrap, and a fruit smoothie to wash it down.
