Hot Dining: First Nations Fare at the Squamish Lil’Wat Cultural Centre

Photo by Sheri Radford

Fluffy fried bannock enclosing thinly sliced smoked salmon, served with salad of crunchy red cabbage, carrot, sunflower seeds and bell pepper in a maple-syrup dressing…food for the gods! The elegant-but-unnamed little eatery at the Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre whips up West Coast First Nations cuisine with a contemporary flair and serves it cafeteria-style for a snappy patio lunch. When you tour the centre, named for the two cultures it celebrates, leave time to taste a simple-but-superb salmon or venison dish created by chefs Theodora Sam and Ken Wright. Pair it with xusem, a cool drink made from the soapberries found all over Lil’wat territory and served free.—Louise Phillips
