Kensington in Calgary is not the same is Toronto’s, but still has a cute little charm – does “Kensington” mean something, is it a pure coincidence? I did a quick search, and it’s a borough in London known for fashion. Hm!
Anyways, we poked our heads into a few places, but settled on Vero Bistro for the patio.
I started with a martini glass of the lobster-avocado soup. Garnished with chili-strings (for a lack of a better vocabulary), it was perfect and delicious as a start – a cool, creamy soup that didn’t make me sweat in sun. The server was super nice and brought us a bottle of sunscreen to start as well so we wouldn’t fry..:-)
I ordered a Prawn Beet Salad, while my friend opted for the Gouda Lobster Mac & Cheese. The prawns were perfectly grilled, and the salad was fresh – nicely done Vera! I am so pleased to find a place that does good salads. Roasted red peppers, a clean salad (not oily at all!), and fresh.
While heavy, my friend demolished her Mac & Cheese in good time, while our third dining companion happily chowed down on his Stuffed Vero Burger and the Artisan Green Salad, part of their $15 2 course special.
I’ll let you think what you want. It was actually for Wine Bar, but we wandered into Brasserie after the Wake-guy referred it as piggy-piggy. Yummm. It was tacked on the must-hit-list!
This and Stampede = Another awesome weekend! I need to start a series.
