Our first order of business after we tied up at Prince Rupert was to check in with Canadian customs. Our second order of business was to call the Cow Bay Café to make a dinner reservation.
I often tell people there is only one good restaurant in SE Alaska: Ludvig's Bistro in Sitka. Similarly, there's only one good restaurant on BC's north coast: the Cow Bay Café. I find it interesting that both are small, about ten tables. There the resemblance ends. Where Ludvig's Bistro is exotic with walls and tablecloths of ochre and purple, the Cow Bay Café is plain with beige walls and navy blue tablecloths. But it doesn't need to be exotic; it has a great view of the harbor and the marina.
We both had salmon with Thai red curry sauce. We weren't disappointed.
