Annona Restaurant

What I love about Winterlicious is that it’s a chance to try new restaurants across the city that you might never otherwise had the opportunity to.  Dining through a custom three course meal makes you feel like a king… a king that’s getting great value!

This year I headed to the Park-Hyatt’s Annona, for a meal that almost looked too pretty to eat – the key word being almost. We started off at the hotel’s rooftop bar with breathtaking views of the city and moved down to the restaurant for a delicious meal.

Here is the run down:

FullSizeRender (9)Grilled Crab Cake

While crab cakes aren’t usually my go-to, this one set the bar pretty high for any others I consume in the future. It had a super crispy outside filled with loads of succulent crab meat, balanced with a fresh slaw and sweet-acidy balsamic.

Grilled Arctic Char

So pretty much whenever I see this fish on a menu, I feel like I need to get it. It has an undeniably moist and buttery texture, complimented by perfectly crispy skin.  This fish was accompanied by a parsnip puree and curry cream sauce along with steamed white asparagus and roasted beets.

I would almost describe this main as decadent. With rich, bold flavours, it was truly a treat to eat. A grilled  beef medallion, golden shrimp, and seared scallops topped with a peppercorn jus, red pepper beurre blanc and a side of lobster mash and roasted vegetables.

 

 

 

 

Dessert 

FullSizeRender (12)Warm Molten Chocolate Lava Cake

No meal is complete without a sweet ending. There is just something about warm chocolate oozing out of a moist cake.  This, combined with a caramelized hazelnut ice cream to cool it all off.

I had to get in one more picture of the melting chocolate because that’s just a thing of beauty.
