Explore Local Flavours
A favorite find in my quest for culinary adventure- Bistro ’67 in Whitby offers guests the opportunity to explore the local flavours of Durham Region and the bounty of Ontario. The tagline for this establishment is from “field to fork”, inspired dishes that layer locally grown produce, meat and wines with in house expertise to create a true culinary experience. The icing on the cake is that it comes neatly wrapped with modern decor in a gorgeous location inside the Center for Food of Durham College. You would never guess this was a teaching facility unless you stop to watch the large flat screen monitors, you will see student and chef collaborating to bring you ever changing seasonal offerings. This is so up my alley, it is mind boggling that I didn’t know about it sooner. I think they can expect me to be a regular patron anytime I have the opportunity to dine out.
An impromptu lunch date with a friend led to my first experience at Bistro 67. We ordered the pickle plate, which in my opinion is an under appreciated appetizer, it was fabulous!
There was a selection of traditional cucumber pickles, curried carrots, beets and pickled eggplant. We also sampled a cheese board of Niagara Gold, Pecorino and Smoked Gouda accompanied by freshly baked bread and an onion compote. For my main I decided to give the highly recommended Meatloaf Meatball a try since it was the feature of the day and I was not disappointed! As you can see in the picture there was a surprise inside, a cooked egg………AH Mazing!
My second visit was for a girls night out, six friends who all appreciate good food and boy did we ever appreciate it! So much so that I only got pictures of the first two appetizers and my salad. Dinner was just too darn good to stop eating long enough to photograph it. That means I have to go back for another visit soon, actually I have it on good authority that a special burger topped with a fried egg is going to make an appearance as the weekly feature.You know where you’ll find me!
Special thanks to our server Kaitlin, Chef Ben and Dominic for taking the time to make our experience memorable and providing us with excellent service!Cheers
