It’s a tale as old as time, Australian moves to Whistler, falls in love with mountain life and stays out here. Lucky for us, one of those Australians brought traditional meat pies with her. 

Peaked Pies‘ traditional pies ($8.95) can be topped with mashed potatoes, mushy peas and gravy (a drool-worthy combo you can add for only $3.95). They also offer vegetarian pies like their Mental Lentil and more adventurous pies like the Indian Butter Chicken Pie. Sweet pies, breakfast pies, sausage rolls and even Australian-style coffee and desserts are also offered.

La Cantina

With delicious tacos priced at $3.70 each, La Cantina is an amazing, casual option for Mexican food. Try their classic Baja Fish Taco with homemade pico de gallo. Or, opt for one of their veggie options like the Jackfruit Taco topped with avocado salsa. Not in the mood for tacos? Enjoy a customizable burrito, wrap, bowl or quesadilla. Pair it with a Mexican-made Jarritos soda or frozen margarita for the full experience.
