Rosedale Diner

On Friday night I went for dinner with my best friend at Rosedale Diner located in midtown Toronto.

We have been drooling for the poutine au canard for weeks and finally we were able to satisfy our craving.

This was our very first time at this diner but we saw a deal for the diner and when we were scanning through the menu our eyes immediately landed on this poutine.

This is what was written on the menu. "Off-the-bone duck confit and Quebecois cheese curds, frites, demi-glace gravy." Now tell me after reading that don't you want to make a trip to there as well. Believe me it will be worth it. The duck confit was so tender and went perfectly well with the mountain of cheese curds and fries drenched in delicious finger licking gravy. My mouth is watering all over again just thinking about it.

Next we had the chicken dijonaise with beans and frites. It wasn't that great. Think it tasted a bit sour don't know if it was from the dijon sauce but I do give points for the moist chicken. It was not dry at all just wasn't a fan of the sauce.

The portions here were very generous. No appetizers necessary at all. I was already getting stuffed from the poutine itself and I was sharing it with my friend.

For dessert we ordered the flourless chocolate cake. It was light as air. I can eat plates of this since it wasn't heavy at all.

The poutine is a must try at this family-owned restaurant. If you love poutines head to Rosedale diner but make sure to make reservations ahead of time since the seating here is very limited.

Terrible service. Don't go and don't waste your MONEY. Food is awful and waiting 15 minutes for a drink. Never going here again!
