I am one of those lovers of Sweeney`s lunchtime sandwiches, recently I heard Chef Glenn Saunders started cooking dinner and the menu was his take on rustic home cooking, I had to try some dishes and that I did last week.
Chef uses the freshest local ingredients to prepare healthy, never boring food and delicious desserts (using only a convection oven and a couple of induction burners –they do all this without a grill, a deep fryer or even a full oven).
Here are the dishes that I enjoyed during dinner with my dining companion.
We started off with Baked Goat’s Cheese ($11) with a Red Pepper and Artichoke Humuss served with a warm Flat Bread
Spinach Salad ($12) Fresh Spinach, Tiger Blue Cheese, Pecans, Roasted Red Peppers and a warm Bacon and Sherry Vinagrette
Roasted Mushroom Pizza ($18) Roasted Mushrooms with Asparagus and Tellagio Cheese Pizza
Trinidad Chicken ($18) Citrus Honey Glazed Chicken Breast, stuffed with Orange & Ginger Sweet Potatoes
Chocolate Mousse ($8) accompanied with a Ganache Brownie & Guinness Foam
Crème Brulée ($8) served with a Peach Vanilla Ice Cream along with some of their Maple Goat Cheese Ice Cream (by special request)
So now we are up two for two, both lunch and dinner are delicious, perhaps they may want to add breakfast too and go for three for three!
Sweeney`s is located at 1091 Hamilton Street in Yaletown, reservations for dinner are suggested http://www.sweeneysyaletown.ca
