Vegetarian tasting at Canoe | Toronto

I had seen many photos about Canoe, a Canadian restaurant, on Tiffany's blog Leftbanked and if there was one place I was going to visit during my stay in Toronto, it was going to be this restaurant. 

Tiffany and I got there quite early, at 5.30 pm, as the other option would have been around 9 pm. We wanted to see the sunset but as you will see, we only got to catch a small glimpse. 

We had a table by the window on the 54th floor and we overlooked the southern area of the city. 

Tiffany had a cocktail and I chose a glass of Cave Spring Canoe Riesling. 

A storm was coming and it was something like I had never seen before. 

We started off with this homemade hummous and delicious bread. 

We had both opted for the vegetarian tasting menu. 

Our first course was tamarack quail eggs (one per person). We thought that the portions were going to be this small all along but they became bigger and bigger. 

Okroshka was a Russian-inspired dish with radish, cucumber, potato and egg. 

The Ontario burrata was beautifully presented and tasted so good. After this dish, I was full but there was more to come.

Next up was a wine-covered watermelon intermezzo.

The Canadian barley risotto was huge (it could have been a main course on its own) but too good not to eat. I admit that I was struggling by then and I don't think I was able to finish it all. 

Meanwhile the storm that had been covering our view was clearing up but only slowly.

The first and main dessert was the classic Canoe buttertart with wild rye ice cream. A true delight!

The final part was the lavender shortbread. It would have been great with an espresso but as I was so full, I didn't order one. 

Sunset wasn't too spectacular but it was great to enjoy the views and to have the storm gone past. If I visit Toronto again, I will definitely return to Canoe for dinner. The food, the service and the view are more than worth it.
