Earls of Jasper
In the heart of Jasper surrounded by glorious mountains sits Earls. As a resident from the UK, I am well aware of a UK based Earls and although I am sure that Earls in the UK is just as lovely, does it compare to the views that Jasper has surrounding the restaurant? Possibly not. Earls of Jasper is in such a fabulous location. There’s ample parking, it’s in walking distance from all of the local hotels in the area and close by to all of the local shops in downtown Jasper.
The best thing about it though is the patio with a 180-degree view of the Canadian Rockies that customers are welcome to enjoy.
No dinner is complete without a dessert. Their choices are interesting and varied so I chose the sticky toffee chocolate pudding. The combination of warm chocolate and toffee sauces, with vanilla ice cream in a yummy ginger candy snap bowl sounds as delicious as it tastes.
Cake is always such a risk in a restaurant because you never know if it will be dry, moist, too stodgy, under-baked etc. Cake isn’t really what most people would choose following a big carby dinner but the toffee sauce with this cake blew my mind.
There was a deep ginger and dark maple syrup flavour to it that set my taste buds alight. Perfectly baked cake that melted in the mouth and the added crunch of the delightful ginger snap bowl rounded up the entirety of the experience. Making it particularly memorable.
The menu in Earls is constructed and inspired by the world around us. The choices of food are vary depending on the area you visit. From chefs in London, to farmers in local regions. This is how they manage to offer such a lovely world-inspired menu.
The location is perfect. There aren’t many places in the world that allow people to sit outside with a panoramic view of the mountains as you sip your G&T.
The menu’s are well-priced and fair and the service is brilliant. Although it a busy restaurant, it is clear to see that the staff here are well trained in dealing with tourists and busy schedules.
In all honesty though, even coming here just for a simple drink to take in these views is well worth it and will certainly make your day.
