Toronto - Canoe


On Tuesday my DH took me to Canoe, a restaurant of great repute in downtown Toronto's financial district. These first three photos are courtesy of this website.
The restaurant is located on the 54th floor of one of the TD Towers.


We had a spectacular view of the Toronto Islands. The service is impeccable and the food is divine.

Clover Road's duck "Tongue to Tail" Sourtilege maple whiskey cured foie gras Rillettes et Parfait was our shared appetizer.
And WOW was it amazing. When the waiter brought the dish he described it in detail. The "Tongue to Tail" described the various parts of the duck that we had on the plate. It was meant to depict the portions of the duck. There was the breast, and several parts made up the pate - the heart, the kidneys and liver. It was truly amazing! Photos are not the best as we used our phone.

A reflection of the windows in the wine glass. The wine was from the Picton area of Ontario, a pinot noir from the winery Keint-He. The name is derived from a native word which was anglicized to Quinte, hence the Bay of Quinte.
We both had the Alberta lamb, Branson pickle, baby turnips, spring onion and butterball potatoes. Absolutely delicious!!
 I was full and am not usually a dessert person, BUT honestly!! This sticky toffee date pudding layered with passion fruit ice cream and and almond foam was mouth-wateringly delicious that we almost ordered a second one. I was out with a friend last night and we were discussing the restaurant and she asked longingly about this dessert!!
