It appeared as it was games night as I entered this funky room, on one side I saw Jenga and on the other Scrabble. My friend Joe Leary joined me for some comfort food, that was not only playful and reminiscent of the 1970’s, it’s all made in house. The room has got character and kitsch, novelty items, photos and posters inspired by the 1970’s goes hand in hand with the 1970’s inspired dishes.
We started off sharing the outstanding Deep Fried Pickles ($6) Served with their homemade tartar sauce; followed by the Chicken Wings (6 for $5 or 12 for $9) and my favourite was the honey garlic and this was served with a homemade ranch dip.
For our entrees, I had the delicious Chicken & Waffles ($12) boneless chicken marinated in their secret recipe and then deep-fried to a crispy delicious perfection. Served on top of a fresh made waffle and served with real Canadian maple syrup and butter. Joe had the delicious Meatloaf ($13) Two slices of secret recipe meat loaf smothered in home-made gravy, served with mashed potatoes and a side of peas and carrots.
Although I am not a huge fan of deep fried desserts, we both shared the Deep Fried Reeses Peanut Butter Cups ($4) is our guilty pleasure!
Before, during or after your meal you may want to invite a table mate to join you in a game of scrabble or challenge all your friends in playing one of the other games in the board game collection.
