When you are looking to try and follow a low carb diet it can be difficult at times to find something to order if you are looking for delivery or to dine in at a restaurant.
here is the obvious choice of salad or a simple steak, but that gets a little bit boring and what if you want more than that? There are some restaurants that are favorites to go to for keto menu options because they make it easy to find those low carb food items. Some of them are just quick and easy and some have really gone out of their way to provide fantastic keto-specific options.
Here are a few restaurants in British Columbia to check out if you are looking for low carb menu options that make it easy to avoid those unnecessary or unwanted carbs.
Wendy’s is one of the best if you are trying to follow the keto lifestyle because there are so many different things to get on the menu. They have some of the best salad options that you are going to find and this includes the Grilled Caesar Salad, Southwest Avocado Chicken Salad, and others. Get any of their burgers with a lettuce wrap and it is conveniently placed into their burger takeout containers, this makes it easy to eat it with a fork and knife if you want.
Lettuce Wrap Problems
There are some burger joints that will literally wrap the burger in a forest of lettuce and you need to dig through all of that before you find any other ingredients. It doesn’t make the experience a pleasant one and I often find myself having to take off bits and pieces of the lettuce wrap because there is just too much, it’s wasteful.
Get The Southwest Avocado Chicken Salad
Then there are other restaurants that do it perfectly, just the right amount of lettuce, or simple with one or two pieces on either side and inside a to-go container like Wendy’s does. You will never have the problem of too much lettuce wrap Wendy’s with a lettuce wrap, at least I have never had that problem yet when ordering.
A&W in Canada has announced that they are making their burgers with grass-fed beef now which gives me one more reason to go with them. Not only do they have grass-fed beef but they also offer convenience with their compost-friendly packaging too.
After you are done with your burger or chicken strips etc you can just toss them into the compost bucket and not have to worry about sorting garbage like you would from other fast food establishments. This just makes everything very easy and the clean-up a fast one.
The Mama Burger Lettuce Wrap #1
The Mama Burger at A&W is my go-to favorite with a lettuce wrap when I want to try and go with something more low carb on the menu. Others have tried options like the Spicy Habanero Chicken Burger with a lettuce wrap or a Chubby Chicken Burger with a lettuce wrap but that might be walking the line a little bit.
There are many A&W locations to find around BC and they can be easily accessed for drive through and delivery through apps that pick-up from restaurants for you.
This is one of the best restaurant chains in BC right now for you to get a keto meal, just get a lettuce wrap burger and skip the fries. They have a variety of options that you can choose for a lettuce wrap and good breakfast choices too, like eggs, sausage, and bacon.
The Keto Chicken Box from SMAK in Vancouver
SMAK has been marketed as ‘healthy fast food’ because it uses a variety of high quality ingredients to come up with fast meals that are full of nutrients.
This seen above here is their Keto Chicken Box option that comes from SMAK and it is perfect for a keto meal for lunch or dinner, even breakfast if you want. I purchased it in the morning and it kept great later on for dinner.
SMAK in Vancouver: 1139 W Pender St
At SMAK you can find superfood items, low fat options, keto options, dairy free food, vegan and vegetarian, and gluten free food. This is great for when you are in a hurry and want something that is still going to provide the good ingredients you are looking for.
They’ve got oatmeal bowls for breakfast, smoothie bowls, and breakfast bowls like the Avo Bacon Bowl which I went with for breakfast. You an opt out of the SMAK hash and just get extra eggs if you are looking to stay away from more carbs.
Their Sausage and Eggs bowl is another great option for breakfast too, and again you can switch for more eggs instead of the SMAK hash which includes sweet potato. If you are in Vancouver and want to find something keto then check out the Keto Chicken Box from SMAK or one of their other great menu options.
2. Ricky’s Restaurant
The Ultimate Keto Chaffle from Ricky’s
Need I say more? This was the Ultimate Keto Chaffle from Ricky’s and it was truly delicious. There was a decent amount of bacon in every single bit of those waffles that was taken. This was better than I expected it to be. Those waffles are cooking with green onion and bacon inside of them.
The Ultimate Keto Chaffle came with guac, salsa, and sour cream. When I was taking each bite I couldn’t help but think that it tasted just like I was eating nachos. It tasted that good. I would recommend you try their Ultimate Keto Chaffle if you are interested in seeing what it’s all about, I am glad that I did.
The Ultimate Chaffle
The Basic Chaffle
These are the two chaffles on the menu at Ricky’s that are marketed as being keto friendly food items, also gluten free and they are high protein too.
With the Ultimate Chaffle from Ricky’s you are getting the green onions, the bacon, and the 3 dips with guac, salsa, and sour cream. If you are going to try one of the keto chaffles then I would say go with the Ultimate Chaffle from Ricky’s because you get more with it.
1. Pizza Pizza
Above here you can see the Keto Pepperoni Pizza from Pizza Pizza which is one of the most popular pizza chains in Canada.
If you are looking for a keto pizza then why not with Pizza Pizza? Take off cooking for the night and order from them. It makes the entire experience easy and the food tastes great. The keto crust with this pizza was a lot better than others I have tried.
They’ve also got salads you can go with, chicken wings, and some great cauliflower bites as well but those have a bit of batter on them. If you are looking for something that is marketed as keto then I would suggest checking out their Keto Pepperoni Pizza or Keto Pesto Margherita, or with the Keto Protein Lovers.
Go With The Keto Pepperoni Pizza
This pizza above here from Pizza Pizza is the Keto Pepperoni Pizza and I would give it 8.5/10 as I thought it was fairly good and would order again on a keto pizza night.
These aren’t the only restaurants available to order from if you are looking for those low carb options but they are some of the great ones that have been able to cater to that lifestyle if you are looking for something keto. From grass-fed lettuce wraps at A&W to the Southwest Avocado Chicken Salad at Wendy’s, the Chaffles, the Keto Chicken Box from SMAK in Vancouver or the Keto Pepperoni Pizza, it is clear that more keto-specific menu items are coming around and that’s a great thing for those who need or want them.
It gives people in BC just one more menu option when they’re looking to cut carbs and stay away from those other fast food options, and helps those restaurants also bring in new people as well that might otherwise have looked elsewhere.
