About the Culinary Spice Trail

 

When you think about your favourite restaurant, we bet you remember more than just the food. A great dining experience is about the way it makes you feel… and on the Spice Trail, you’ll feel like family.

That’s because Surrey’s Spice Trail is focused on the people that make our area so special. Well-known chefs, like Vikram Vij (My Shanti), dedicated cooks, tireless front of house staff, and entire families work together to bring traditional flavours to life in Surrey! It is a labour of love… which is what sets the Spice Trail apart.

Bringing together so many different styles of food underneath one banner is a bit of a metaphor for Surrey, in general. The city is so big and there are so many things to do that it takes a bit of local knowledge to get started. But once you’re here, you’re part of our family, so don’t hesitate to ask what’s good or to say “surprise me” – you’ll probably find a new favourite cocktail with a hint of something you never thought to put in a drink or a dessert that blows your mind!

It’s all about discovery on The Spice Trail!

As more people are shopping online or having items delivered during the COVID-19 pandemic, White Rock City Council wants to encourage residents and visitors to buy from local businesses and “Shop the Rock.”

White Rock is fortunate to have award-winning, provincially and nationally recognized businesses that offer fantastic goods and services, ranging from hair products, restaurants, bakeries, health food stores, gourmet chocolate, home décor, flowers, craft beer, health food, mechanics and the arts.

This City by the Sea has more than 300 small businesses, in addition to home-based businesses.

Local businesses are often friends and neighbours who live and work in the community and many are hard hit by closures and reduced customer visits due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

List of Online and Pickup Options

The City of White Rock has started a list of businesses offering shopping alternatives and will keep adding to the list. To include your business, contact the City’s Economic Development Officer, Carolyn Latzen, at clatzen@whiterockcity.ca 

 

If you see or hear about someone or an organization that is doing good in our community please forward the information to me.
