Radium Hot Springs: Food and Horseshoes

One night while we were in Radium, Mr. Bean and I went for dinner at “The Black Forest Restaurant” in Invermere. We chose to go there as apparently they have excellent schnitzel and it’s all very kitschy. It’s pretty entertaining as all the servers wear costumes, the outside looks like this:

and the inside looks like that:

If you’ve ever been to the alps in southern Bavaria, there are buildings actually that look similar to this, which is pretty awesome.

Mr. Bean started off with some shrimp, mushroom and garlic butter appetizer:

then he had schnitzel with crab, asparagus and Bearnaise sauce for dinner:

I had my favourite drink, Shirley Temple:

Then I had pacific salmon with rice pilaf and veggies.

For dessert we had creme caramel. So tasty. We didn’t eat the flower; do you know if violets are edible?

After dinner we played a game of horseshoes at our hotel.

Only Mr. Bean managed to get the horseshoe around the peg.

The two on the right are mine because I’m just that great.

Have you ever been to a kitschy restaurant? What was your experience?
