A destination restaurant, Tekarra Restaurant is nestled up in the mountains in the tranquil and and peaceful Tekarra Lodge. Unless you knew the restaurant was there, the generic sign at the side of the highway indicating that there’s food of some sort in that direction doesn’t exactly clue diners in on the fact that a wonderful dining experience lies at the end of that roadway. In case you’re trying to find it, it’s not very far from Jasper. We got lost trying to find it ourselves, expecting more signage than there actually was. It’s simply a short drive along Highway 93 towards the Columbia Icefields, and a quick left onto Highway 93A. Tekarra Restaurant is helmed by owner, chef and stand up comedian David George Husereau, who has been at Tekarra Restaurant for over 20 years and does stand up comedy when Tekarra Restaurant is closed in the off season.

For dessert, I couldn’t resist trying their signature warm, Callebaut chocolate soufflé with vanilla ice cream. The soufflé was fluffy outside filled with warm, gooey chocolate outside, which acted as the perfect sundae topper for the accompanying vanilla ice cream. The soufflé the male human received was overcooked, resulting in a spongy cake instead, but was whisked away and replaced with a perfectly cooked soufflé once we let one of the servers know.
