This Bronte Village restobar, south of Lakeshore Rd., absolutely blew us away with their Duck Poutine. It’s as fancy as they come: duck confit, foie gras gravy, and Quebec cheese curds. Unreal. While you’re there, you must order a pizza. The bread is freshly baked in-house and that salami … oh my. It just might be the best sliced meat I’ve ever tasted … Catch Hospitality Group (which owns a slew of the best restos in Oakville, including this one) knocked this one out of the proverbial ballpark. This casual resto-bar has a farm-fresh focus and sources locally when possible. Good luck scoring a table on a Friday night … it’s worth the wait. The beer selection rocks, and so does the chill vibe.
The menu at this Aldershot resto reads haddock but the server says it’s cod. Either way, it’s thick, greasy and great, battered in amber beer and served with slaw. Their fresh cut fries are phenomenal and bring to mind that summer when I was 19, waiting tables at Swiss Chalet. Tartar sauce wasn’t served, so I dipped the fries in wing sauces made in-house. But really, who needs tartar sauce when your fish tastes superb on its own?
3. Ned Devine’s Irish Pub
When the meaty juice drips from your hands to the plate, there’s something special in store. A pretzel bun encompasses this juicy meat patty, which leaves me in awe of their recent menu changes (they’ve switched their fries and swapped the bun). Ned’s Classic Burger comes dressed with lettuce, tomato, dill pickle, and red onion. This burger was the bomb! I had no expectations when ordering it, but wow … mind blown. The meat was perfectly seasoned and it was so tender inside … it nearly crumbled in my mouth. The pretzel bun was soft and it was an absolutely perfect combination of flavour. I nearly scarfed down this entire burger in a few minutes and the server was all smiles when I asked for a box to take home the last two bites. It’s. That. Damn. Good. Even with plenty of dining options nearby, with a burger like this, Ned’s is sure to be full all summer.
Hidden in the corner of a plaza at Eighth Line and Upper Middle Road is a cute Japanese restaurant called Niwa Sushi. As you walk in, you see open tables to the right and a row of smaller private rooms on the left heading to the back. The service is very friendly and the atmosphere is nice, featuring a homey and well-lit interior. The sushi was very fresh and presented well. As for a bonus, it’s conveniently located in the same plaza as a gym!
This long-running Fairview St. pub has a loyal following, and it’s a family-friendly place, with lots of booths and plenty of sports enthusiasts by the bar. Servers know the regulars by name. Mostly known for fish and chips, the casual restaurant offers super-friendly service. Baked Bacon Mac and Cheese arrives in a cast-iron skillet with a cute little mitt. Clearly, it’s been in the oven. It has a four-cheese blend, elbow macaroni, bacon, and house-made cheese sauce. It’s delicious. There’s no salt, and I’m down with that because bacon is salty and I’d rather no salt than too much. Next time you’re in the mood for something hot, cheesy, and filling, you should try it.
