Victoria, British Columbia, Canada

Not all bars are equal. And not all are the boozy type we’ve come to think of. Some are for ice cream junkies, others go for their latte or frappacino fix. However, when I was in Victoria B.C., I discovered Plenty Epicurean Pantry where the most popular item is chocolate dipped local figs filled with cognac truffle. Now that’s my happy hour. But owner Trevor Walker’s fave is an organic chocolate bar from Spain made with 70% dark chocolate.
