One travel rule I always keep is "Ask the locals what their favourite place to eat is and eat there!". I also ask anyone who has traveled to the destination I am going to the same question. Hands down Bullock's Bistro wins for Yellowknife every single time! No kidding!!...it really is the first place people recommended to have a meal every single time I asked,....and that includes wait staff from other restaurants telling me "if you haven't been to Bullock's you really need to go!". I now understand why! It's a funky looking place from the outside and if you weren't actually looking for it you might walk right by (unless there was a line up outside the door which I'm told happens during the tourist seasons). It's just as funky inside with all the paraphernalia tacked to the walls and ceiling....think of it as a living scrap book or memory book....it's amazing with signatures and notes from people who have traveled from all over the world and eaten there....even some quite famous people! I loved the atmosphere...a real treasure! I was very fortunate to visit Bullock's on the last Saturday in October at lunch and thankfully it wasn't too busy so we were able to get a table...one of the blessings of travelling to Yellowknife when the weather is lousy! lol The sweet young waitress was friendly, outgoing had a good sense of humour, was very attentive and she had a very beautiful smile. The owner/chef was charming, friendly, was very enjoyable to chat with and he was definitely a wizard in the kitchen. Both my husband and I had their pan friend whitefish which was outstanding and we had it with half fries, half salad (as our waitress recommended)...and everything was fresh, fresh, fresh! You can not beat fresh caught fish and fresh cut fries - seriously delicious! Oh and thank you very much for it being cinnamon bun Saturday....fresh from the oven (how could you resist!?!) jumbo cinnamon buns...for dessert! YUM! I had a lot of great meals in Yellowknife but I would have to say that my meal at Bullock's was hands down my favourite! I would highly recommend and I would return in a heartbeat!
