So what did we do? Why, order the whole menu of course ;)
Appetizers were the sure highlight of the meal. Among the quartet of main entrees, “Corn” was the table favourite. Desserts? I liked the Popcorn Pudding best, while Robyn wiped out two servings of the Nanaimo Bar. We’ll be back when menu changes to Spring. Right now they’re serving up a “Sprinter” menu.
The breakdown in photos, below:
Pea – Garden Pea Broth, Spring Pea Flan, and Wasabi Pea Leaves
…post-pour of garden pea broth!
Mushroom – Portobello Mousse, Truffled Toast, and Pear & Fennel Compote
Here’s a closer look at the portobello mousse. They served this same mousse at the Village Voice Choice Eats 2009. No reason to change a good thing ;)
