Devour in Victoria, BC

Eating on the road has it's ups and downs. One is usually limited to gas station/truck stop faire, fast food, or whatever the venue decides to feed you that night. Every once in awhile there's a gem waiting for you right by the venue. Today was one of those days.
Meet Devour. It reminds me of a place you'd find in NYC in just about every way. Aesthetically, simple and quaint, like you're in somebody's kitchen, and it's not much bigger than that either! And the food, simple, effective and f**king delicious.
The menu changes daily, which I think is very cool. I ordered the capicola with olive tapenade on ciabatta with a salad (drizzled with the most delicious balsamic dressing I've EVER had.) Like I said, simple yet effective. Flavors were perfectly balanced, the capicola was perfectly spiced, the olive tapenade was not too oily or too salty and the ciabatta had a perfect crunchy outter layer.
Overall everything had a very fresh and homemade feel and gets 5 out of 5 boners from me!
