If you live in Kelowna, you know how many restauratns there are to choose from when you head out for a bite to eat. 

Too many.

In fact, there are over 50 restaurants within walking distance of Bernard Ave, Kelowna's main downtown strip. This does not even take into consideration the hundreds more accross the city from Lake Country to West Kelowna. I dont think you could try them all in this life time if you tried!!

Dont get me wrong, I think it is fantastic that Kelowna has such a strong food scene. The restaurants are not all large chains and offer a vast range of cultures and flavours. It is just hard to know... where to try next?!

Well, look no farther. I have found my new all time favourite place for great food and amazing drinks...

Jack's Pizza and Liqour- 231 Bernard Ave

This joint is right downtown, nestled between Earls and Craft Beer Market, and let me tell you, it will NOT dissapoint! It is super unique and feels like a place you would find in Vancouver or LA while shopping some random street. 

The menu has unreal dishes from deep fried bocconcini cheese to prosciutto and gouda gnocci, truffle mac n cheese and so many amazing pizzas! 

I realize that almost all of the dishes I just listed contain cheese... so now you know my biggest weakness... 

BUT, they also have many salads and healthier options as well. I just havent tried them. 

As for the cocktails, they have over 20 perfectly crafted cocktails that are sure to please the vodka lover, the gin lover, and everyone in between.

Their website states that their "goal quite simply is to be known as THE place to go in Kelowna for a well made cocktail. While there are many incredible spots in the Okanagan to get a martini, handcrafted cocktail or a scotch on the rocks there isn’t one that combines all those facets under one roof and specializes in that area." 

I think they hit the nail on the head.
