Cactus Club Cafe (Douglas St., Victoria)
I’ve been a fan of the Cactus Club Cafe (as chain as it is) simply because whenever I eat there, I can always find at least one or two dishes that I will enjoy no matter what. One of those dishes that Cactus Club Cafe never screws up is the jambalaya. Whenever I eat at Cactus Club, you’ll probably see me eat this dish simply because I know that whichever Cactus Club Café I eat at, they will do a good job when making the jambalaya (a Louisiana Creole dish that I love).
I’m never disappointed, and my recent visit to the Douglas Street branch of Cactus Club was not the exception. Great jambalaya, great ambiance and the best part of it was the company of my Mom (who was just too tired to go and eat at Zambri’s). Very good service and extremely generous portions made my evening quite pleasant. Also, the fact that we were incredibly hungry as we had been in (meetings all day and eating very little. Overall, a nice experience as I usually have at Cactus Club.
Disclosure: I paid entirely for both of our dinners on my own dime. I wasn’t paid to write this review, nor was I required to do so either. The purpose of this blog entry is just to describe and document my experience at a restaurant I really liked. In any review I write or publish on my site, I retain editorial control at all times.
