My first Dine-Out experience this year was at The Establishment. I'd heard good things about this restaurant and their $28 Dine-Out menu looked yummy, so I headed their with two of my favourite ladies to share a meal and glass of wine with. The meal was yummy and the company fabulous! I've included pictures for your viewing pleasure.
Orange Infused Beet & Goat Cheese Salad with a roasted shallot lemon vinaigrette and pomegranate reduction. I had this and enjoyed it. I was expecting it to be a bit more beety, but it was still very good.
Chef Bongo's Famous African Peanut Soup. One of the lovely ladies I was with had this soup and thoroughly enjoyed it. She said it was similar in flavours to the spicy peanut sauce served with satay but with vegetables and a soup consistency.
Moroccan Spiced Ahi Tuna with pickled papaya puree and drizzled with a honey-wasbi vinaigrette. This disappeared from lovely lady #2's plate in about 2.4 seconds...so, I assumed it was pretty tasty.
White Miso Black Cod in a sake, coconut, and kaffir lime broth, served with baby steamed potatoes, edamame beans, cherry tomatoes, and butternut squash. Lovely lady #2 thoroughly enjoyed this dinner.
Bison Striploin, marinated with juniper berry and fresh herbs, finished with a blueberry port-wine demi sauce and accompanied with celeriac puree and fresh seasonal vegetables. Very yummy in my tummy! As was the $32 bottle of Circus Malbec. I couldn't believe that we could get a bottle of wine for under $40. Score! And just to clarify, that was yummy in all of our tummies.
New York Cheesecake, with a fresh mango coulee. You can never go wrong with cheesecake.
