It’s been a long time since I was excited enough about a local restaurant to want to share but @aloette_restaurant is that kind of a place.
@cookiespi and I wanted to try somewhere that was new to both of us and when I suggested Aloette, she jumped on it like a Pug on a hotdog.
This crispy squash with brown butter hollandaise, sage, parmesan and a ridiculous heap of pumpkin seeds was truly one of the best things I have eaten in recent memory. Our fantastic waitress told us that she has clients who eat the squash every visit and refer to it as Beyoncé - sexy, one of a kind and unforgettable . Yup. Beyoncé.
A close second was the seared scallops with beech mushroom, miso, scallion and crispy Brussels sprout chips. I think I could go there every day, sit at the bar and eat those two dishes with a glass of wine and never, ever get tired of either of them.
Not stuffy, as feared, amazing wait staff and delicious food. Okay, although not nearly as pricy as big sister, Alo, but worth every penny. #fbcigers #aloette #toreats #torontofood #toronto_insta #yyzeats #torontorestaurants #foodstagram #foodgasm ##feedfeed #toeats #eatto
