It’s classy and cool, yet cozy. The Martini House offers “distinctly different dining.” Complete with gourmet, chef-made menu items, the abundant supply of libations begs one to quiet the mind and focus on tasting the sweet and sour sensations on your SO’s lips. Or you can just swipe their cotton candy. The relaxing atmosphere on Elizabeth St. is the perfect place to unwind after a long week … even if your relaxing begins at 11 p.m. (it’s open until 1 a.m. during the week, which is way past my bedtime but that’s neither here nor there). With drinks like the Blue Cactus (SKYY Vodka, Blue Curacao, Malibu Rum, sour lime, pineapple juice) and the Golden Rod (SKYY Vodka, Tequila, Grand Marnier, lime cordial), a few martinis in and I’ll be saying “whatever floats your boat, boo.”

Delicious bites await at this tiny vegan/gluten-free eatery renowned for its menu. I had the Power Bowl, a nutritious dish made up of organic steamed quinoa, grilled sweet potatoes, black beans, braised kale, avocado, grilled portobello mushroom, brazil nut parmesan, and lemon tahini sauce. It was beyond delicious and full of so many complementary flavours. It was chased with an ice-cold chocolate smoothie comprised of almond milk, raw cacao powder, cacao butter, coconut oil, bananas, dates, cacao nibs, and sea salt. It wasn’t a sweet drink and I loved everything about it. This eatery simultaneously helps you stay on track with your fitness goals and hits numerous cravings. And most of all, it’s incredibly tasty. Where else can you find a win-win-win?
Just awesome. This tender, tasty, seasoned patty brings me so much joy, the bartender is grinning from ear to ear because I can’t talk when she checks on me and I only manage a thumbs-up to let her know it’s amazing. She says all of their food tastes that good! The juicy burger, made in-house, is served with hand-cut fries. I’ll most definitely be back for more pub grub at Bryden’s.
Ever finish your pho and want a little more? It’s a little awkward because then you feel like ordering another one, but then you may just worry that you’re being judged. First off, life is short, eat well. Second, instead of getting a regular sized pho, why not an XL sized one? Their beef rice noodle pho comes in 3 sizes with a choice of 3 different meats. These meat options include rare beef, brisket, stewed tripe, beef tendon, beef balls, and chicken! Now that’s quite a list, but just look at the size of that bowl – all for less than $15.
There may be quite a few locations across the GTA, but don’t let that fool you, each location has some specialty items that the others don’t. While this may be tricky when going from location to location, it does help make each location a little bit unique – and unique is refreshing. The satay got me again here, but it was done very differently than any other satay pho I’ve had. This was one of the most flavourful phos I’ve ever come across and if I’m ever in the area, it’ll be a no-brainer for me to go back and have another. Pineapples in the dish help to offset the nodes of spice, but the heat here is not overwhelming at all. It’s a flavourful heat that blends with the soup perfectly. When you bite into a spring onion, the flavour profile changes yet again. Oakville, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
