If you loved Ping, then Cafeteria, well you’ll equally love Burdock & Co. on Main Street at 11th Ave. It’s got a very welcoming atmosphere for such a small space, but a big menu for choices and flavours, so go curious and hungry!
I knew it would be delish as I had heard many great things, however my carnivore friend wasn’t so sure the ‘veg focused’ menu would fill him up! Ha ha, I love a good challenge, especially when it’s a “I can’t live without meat” person.
First, we ordered some wine. Fun menu to choose a great glass from! I had a funky Rosa del Contadino 8 (Rose) from Sicily, a pretty unique one, well worth at least a glass. Then it was time to eat locally sourced ingredients. We shared the Fried Chicken and Pickles dish – think gourmet chicken fingers, it was yummy! Then we shared the Roasted Squash and Barley Miso Ramen – and surprisingly enough, this beat out the Grilled Beef Brisket Ramen my friend ate afterwards (one point for the veg soup!). You wouldn’t think Ramen would be easy to share, but it wasn’t bad. And actually, you have to make it work, because once to try the soup…you won’t be able to stop it was so delicious. Then we tried the Pork and Burdock sausage with the dandelion and potato salad – very tasty! Actually every dish we had was, I can’t wait to go back and try everything on the menu, it was such a fantastic first meal!
So, add this to your dining list… for sure!
