Our Whistler village restaurant just launched our latest menu for the late Spring / early Summer season of 2015. With it, we have delivered four desserts that have collectively been defined by early reviews (from our cherished patrons) as being the best of this British Columbia resort town. While these additions can be found on our dessert menu here, we thought we’d dedicate this week’s blog post to digging deeper into the culinary concepts combined within this oh-so-sinfully-sweet quartet. We urge you to proceed with caution, as the following descriptions alone will smother any hope you may have had for abstaining until “cheat day”.
Four Most Delicious Desserts in Whistler Village for the Spring/Summer of 2015
Cinco de Mayo just passed and with it a slew of mainstream articles discussing the topic of Mexican cuisine, including this one from Yahoo stating that “Yes, Mexican Food Can be Healthy”.
There is indeed a misconception about our regional dishes. When casual foodies picture Mexican food they conjure images of carb-laden wraps oozing gooey cheese and clumps of retried beans from their edges. While such a thing can be found in many fast-food establishment takes on Tex-Mex and Mexi-Cali (often mistaken as being inherently Mexican) this is untrue of authentic Mexican dining.
Still unsure? Let’s take a look at items on our menu, from Starters to Desserts!
Highlighting Some of the Healthiest Dishes in Whistler Village
The word Whistler incites two very distinct images in the minds of year-round visitors. A powdery white winter-wonderland is one. A lush-green and bright summer scene is the other. While it is true that our resort provides for these two very distinct personas, we do get our fair share of rainy days. We do reside in Canada’s Pacific Northwest, after all. You can certainly hedge your bets by following the long-term forecasts before cementing your arrival dates but Mother Nature, being the cheeky beast that she is, may not always comply with local weather-person predictions. However, there is no need to get bummed if you happen to find yourself in Whistler BC on a run of rainy days. Our Whistler Village restaurant crew once again jumps to the rescue with our recommendations of “things to do” in and around down when precipitation strikes.
Top 5 Things to do on a Rainy Day in Whistler Village
Whistler Village is packed full of visitors from all over the world, each of them arriving with unique dietary preferences, and for some, restrictions. Successful casual, fine, and gourmet dining establishments alike need to accommodate requests from patrons based upon these predisposed or personal choices.

There is no simpler way to say it – people come to Whistler because it’s fun. The ski hills, lakes, trails, activities, accommodations, and entire village is fun. All of it. So when it comes to dining, guests to town look for more than sustenance and refreshment at a reasonable price, they want to have a great time in the process. While an “entertaining” dining experience is by no means exclusive to one establishment in the village, there is one special place that local word-of-mouth and mainstream press alike have deemed to be among the most fun of all eateries in Whistler BC – The Mexican Corner Restaurant. Read further to find out why our restaurant is honored by such a distinction.

Lunch is a big deal in Whistler Village. This may seem like a fairly broad statement to make, but in reality, it may very well be the most important meal of the day for people living within and visiting our community at this time of the year. Every AM there is a mad rush to hit the slopes, with “dawn patrollers” hopping on the lift to beat the crowds. Very few have time to squeeze in a big breakfast, opting instead to grab a quick pastry and espresso from one of the town’s many top notch coffee shops. As far as dinner is concerned, well, of course some of the country’s best dining establishments are here to satiate the evening appetites of locals and visitors alike, but dinner around town tends to run a bit later in the winter. The ski hills are jammed with skiers and boarders looking to maximize every drop of daylight, so dinner in the season often blends into the evening’s apres ski scene. Lunch however, is when most parties take the time to indulge their appetites and taste buds while seeking the ultimate sustenance to reenergize and get them ready for another late day bout on Blackcomb.
Our Whistler Village restaurant is very aware of this behavior adopted by our outdoor enthusiasts and action sport adventurers, those that require not only a meal to satisfy their well-attained afternoon appetites, but one that prepares them for the remaining day’s activities ahead. Thus, as Whistler Blackcomb enters prime season on the slopes we thought we’d provide some menu-based intel as to why our Whistler restaurant has the best lunch in the entire village – for those that of you that have certainly earned it.
