Road Trip Rewind #2: AK & BC Food Diary

Happy Sunday wanderers and welcome to part two of my road trip rewind series. Check out part one where I detail my experience at the vegan mini-mall in Portland, OR. This blogpost details the food we found during the first leg of our trip form Alaska and through British Colombia.

Delta Airlines

Tapas Snack Box $8.99

  • Calbee Harvest Snaps Snapea Crisps

  • Mary’s Gone Crackers Super Seed Crackers

  • Endangered Species Natural Dark Chocolate

  • Madi K’s Whole Natural Almonds

  • Nature’s Bakery Lemon Fig Bar

  • La Panzanella Multigrain Crackers

  • Pick Pocket Dips Traditional Hummus

  • Quinoa Queen Quinoa with Pepper Dip

For the start of my road trip I first flew to Alaska to meet my friend as we would be starting there and driving down to Texas is her car. I flew Delta airlines from Boston to Anchorage and decided to try their all vegan snack box. I liked everything inside and as far as airplane food prices go it wasn’t too expensive. It could definitely be considered a small meal if you eat everything. I loved the variety and the quinoa dip was unique! I would purchase this again.

Girdwood Brewing Co. Girdwook, AK

4oz pours $2 each

Once in Alaska we made a day trip out of heading to Girdwood. We of course made a stop at our favorite brewery Girdwood Brewing Co. They have an adorable atmosphere and little fire pits you can get cozy around. I got a flight to try a few different IPAs and sours. I got Dysfunctional, IP-AK, No Woman No Cryo and Space Tornado. Head to their website to check out more of their core beers and rotating taps.

Jack Sprat, Girdwood, AK

Vegan Nachos $12

For lunch in Girdwood we headed Jack Sprat for some vegan nachos. Served cold with a cheese sauce, they are not what I expected but were definitely amazing. I really enjoyed the walnut and mushroom based “meat”. Make sure you check out their hours in the off-season so you don’t end up napping in the car waiting for them to open for dinner like we did. I would definitely recommend this spot for their food and ambiance.


Established in 2001, Jack Sprat serves carnivores and vegans side by side in what has been a peaceful culinary experiment! 

Mountain High Pizza Pie Talkeetna, AK

LG Veggie Pizza $25.25

We made another day out of heading to Talkeetna which is an adorable small town with beautiful views. Mountain High Pizza pie offered a great atmosphere with its sunny outdoor patio and trippy wall paintings. We enjoyed a veggie pizza which was the special of the day. Without cheese and red sauce it was a bit boring but was great once we added some balsamic. The veggies were fresh tasting and the crust was good, but, overall the pizza was a bit overpriced and nothing overly special. It would be amazing if they would just offer some vegan cheese!

Whole Wheat and Honey Cafe Fort St. John, BC

Thai Noodle Salad Small $4.95 CAD $3.70 USD Large $6.95 CAD $5.20 USD

Veggie Wrap (cold or grilled) $6.95 CAD $5.20 USD

Fresh cut veggies, spring mix, cheese, and house recipe hummus wrapped in a whole wheat tortilla.

This cute cafe was just about the only thing we could find on HappyCow in the Fort St. John area of British Colombia. Though the vegan options weren't overly inventive or exciting it was a perfect stop for a refreshing lunch. The Thai noodle salad was well done and although a tired concept the veggie wrap with hummus did the job as well. It was definitely better catered to vegetarians but it was easy to find out what was vegan from the staff which is always nice. Best of all we found some of the best iced soy lattes of the trip here. Geneva and I each enjoyed one with lunch and then grabbed an additional one for the road.

Next week I will return with part three of this series where I will review the restaurant MeeT in Vancouver. In the meantime if you’re curious…
