Arabesque Cafe

Entrance

Arabesque Cafe, 869 Victoria Street, Kitchener, Canada.

Arabesque Cafe is a diner style family restaurant featuring Lebanese cuisine. It was recommended by a friend who raved about the quality and quantity of food. Indeed, the food is the heart of Arabesque Cafe.

Chicken mousahab with rice, hummus, fatoush salad and pickled beets, $12.99.

The menu is unique and diverse. For example, the shawarma plate comes with your choice of beef, chicken or mixed, rice or fries and either tabouli or fatoush salad. Aside from these, the dish has a handful of vibrant red pickled beets, creamy smooth hummus and a couple of dipping sauces. It’s so hard to describe the exotic flavours but the variety of items on the plate offers so many savoury combinations to try. All plate dishes are accompanied with a warm puffed pita. When opened, a lovely burst of steam escapes.

The front counter has a delicious display of homemade desserts such as bakalava and kunafa, salads and sauces. They are all available for purchase. For those wanting express service, there is a take-out counter. They also have hookah available on weekends in the later evenings.

Arabesque cafe is a must try for those wishing to explore authentic traditional Arab foods!

Boomers Gourmet Fries

Boomers Gourmet Fries, 26 Erie Street, Stratford, Ontario

Boomers Gourmet Fries is a colourful quirky burger and fries joint.  I learned of it some time ago after watching an episode of Food Network’s “You Gotta Eat Here” and I finally found the chance to visit.

Cosmopolitan Poutine (sweet potato fries with gravy and cheese curds).

Boomers is known for their eclectic poutines and burgers.  You can have fries with marinara sauce or black bean chili, sweet potato poutine or onion rings. In addition, your Boomer burger can be accompanied with such items as avocado, goat cheese, mushrooms, onion rings or BBQ potato chips.

Boomers has one large long table off to the side where you can sit and eat with everyone else. The day I went was a beautiful summer’s afternoon and I noticed many people munching Boomer’s food outside while sitting on glossy black benches.

Boomers is a fun and happy place with delicious unique fries and burgers.
