Bannock: Winterlicious 2014

Posted by D on Sunday, February 09, 2014

So Toronto has annual themed food festivals: Winterlicious and Summerlicious, wherein participating restaurants offer prix fixe menus for lunch and/or dinner. One of my exec teams and I hit up Bannock today, and the food was very good, especially considering the price. Bannock is known for "Canadian comfort food" - I've actually been once before, albeit for their regular menu. On the note of Oliver & Bonacini restaurants, I've also been to Biff's Bistro previously.

The kale caesar salad, with dulse, horseradish and Bannock croutons
The pig + chips, with Ontario pork shoulder, roasted garlic fries and mustard greens kimchi
The cheesy chocolate cannoli, with chocolate peanut sauce, brittle, and Ontario cream cheese

So there were seven of us (H, R, L, N, F, M and I), and there was a bit of a wait (although honestly, it really wasn't that bad, and we managed to keep ourselves occupied so we didn't really mind), and they gave us two of these complimentary s'mores cakes to make up for it, which was a super pleasant surprise. And super delicious! The marshmallows were the perfect degree of melted.

The staff were friendly, the food was good, and the atmosphere was nice. Plus the Winterlicious lunch menu is only $15 to boot! Definitely worth checking out, especially if you're a fan of locally sourced ingredients.
