In the heart of Yorkville, there is a yellow, Victorian house -aka- Sassafraz Restaurant.
…my mom, Regina and I went there this past Saturday.
After trying their summerlicious menu, we went shopping at Holt Renfrew.
First Course – Tomatillo gazpacho
crème fraiche / chipotle saffron oil / basil cress (vegetarian)
Second Course – Harrison Co-op artisan chicken breast
white quinoa pilaf / summer squash ratatouille / natural reduction (local)
Third Course- Mango and mint bavarois
oat crumble / spiced raspberry coulis
Very strange Celine heels! Love them or hate them?
Luckily for the budget-minded, Toronto’s Summerlicious (‘special offers’ offered by restaurants throughout the city) is in full effect.
My best friend, Regina, and I decided that we would try Canoe restaurant’s menu. We called on the day of and luckily got a spot for 2:15 Lunch.
Located atop of TD Tower, we marveled at its breath-taking view of Toronto and appreciated the taste and the visual presentation of the food served to us.
For $25 Lunch we got:
New Farms Chilled Cucumber Soup
Orange Scented Cucumber, Hewitt’s Buttermilk & Dill
(Prepared by Regina’s boyfriend who is one of Canoe’s chefs)
MAIN- Chicken Campanelle Pasta
Peas, Smoked Bacon & Citrus Chicken Broth
MAIN- Wellington County Flat Iron Steak
Gai Lan, Sarladaise Potatoes & Smoked Mustard Aïoli
(BEST STEAK I HAVE EVER EATEN)
Chocolate Hazelnut Mousse
Coco Caramel & Devil’s Food Cake
(Chocolate and Hazelnut….the keys to my HEART)
DESSERT – Frozen Yoghurt
Raspberry Broth & Milk Crumble
Overall a delightful experience!
