Welcome to my tradition Inuit/Eskimo Feast

MXf17v3.png

Come on in! It's really quite cosy in here....

To start, I'd like to offer you something a little special that comes exclusively from Dawson City. The world famous and historic Sour Toe Cocktail. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, if that's true then a video must be worth a billion. Please watch and learn a little about this special drink...




For our appetizer, please enjoy a treat enjoyed by all inuit people, Muktuk

y998LF5.png

Muktuk is the skin and blubber from Narwhale, a species of whale found only in the Arctic. Small strips are cut by hand using an ulu, a special knife found widely in the north. This variety of muktuk has a chewy texture, and a flavour reminiscent of mackerel sashimi.


The main course is an Arctic version of surf and turf. The surf portion is seal, slowly braised, this meat has a soft buttery texture and a rich flavour similar to wagyu beef. The turf portion is caribou, a very lean meat which many have described as being a cross between beef and venison. Since there is very little vegetation in the tundra, the Inuit diet is high in both fat and protein. Vegetables are non existent here, except for some roots and wild greens and sea grass harvested from the ocean. Our main course includes chopped fireweed root, and a touch of seagrass for saltiness.

And now for everyone's favourite course-dessert!

5PLJegz.png

The native people of The Arctic have a distinct version of ice cream called Akutaq (also known as Eskimo Ice Cream). It's not creamy ice cream as we know it, but a concoction made from reindeer fat or tallow, seal oil, freshly fallen snow or water, fresh berries, and sometimes ground fish. Air is whipped in by hand so that it slowly cools into foam.


And while you're enjoying dessert I hope you also enjoy a special performance by Tanya Tagaq, a world renounced Inuit throat singer. While throat singing in found in other regions of the world, in the Inuit culture this art form is performed exclusively by women, most often in pairs. Tanya is unique in that she performs this alone




To cap off the evening we have the finest selection of beer available in the north provided by award winning Yukon Brewery.

Cheers! Hope you enjoyed dining in the north!
