I can't believe we are coming to the end of the Ultimate Vegan Contest Month already! It's gone by so fast. Another amazing participant and generous donor to this contest is New West's latest culinary addition Wild Rice.
Wild Rice is the cool kid on the restaurant block. It's the one you want to hang out with, the one you wish would invite you to parties. With it's slick looks, cool staff (and by cool I certainly don't mean cold) and it's melt in your mouth delicacies this restaurant is currently THE evening dining hot spot in New West.
Have I mentioned the customer service is superb? Follow them on twitter at @wildricebc and if you have any questions or comments they will always get back to you promptly. Also I filled in a comment card the other day and for my birthday they sent me a $15 gift card with a little note! I don't think I've ever felt so appreciated by a fine dining establishment before. I truly believe it's the little touches that count and help create loyal brand ambassadors.
Another reason that attracts me to Wild Rice is that their menu is 40% vegan. They don't really talk about it very much which I find fascinating, it's almost like it happened by accident. Oops we made super tasty food and look at that it just happens to be mostly vegan! My only complaint is that when they first opened they had an extensive, fabulous vegan dessert menu. I had a peanut butter chocolate dessert there that I would have moved in with and married. It was that good. But now they don't seem to have very many non-dairy dessert options. Bring them back I say!
If you are looking for someplace with a great atmosphere to chill out with friends or a romantic place to have dinner while overlooking the Fraser River, look no further than the dining wonderland that is Wild Rice. You won't be disappointed!
