I just experienced one of my best dining experiences in a 360 revolving restaurant at the top of CN Tower, located in Toronto. The view that accompanied was breathtaking and Summer is definitely one of the best time, with the sun setting in the midst of your dinner at perfect vicinity. We made a reservation at 5.30pm, and had dinner till slightly after 8 before we decided to head down to the observatory deck.
We ordered.. Amuse bouche of Salmon Caviar and Creme Fraiche and Heirloom Tomato Gazpacho which Jun shared his stories on how he used to make and tried to sell while he was still working at his old workplace. Appetizer of Escargot “Bourguignon” which we all entirely loved. It was a different way of cooking it all together - Smoked bacon, roasted onions, braised garlic, Thuet’s multi grain toast. It didn’t come with the shells and the sauce was amazing. I almost wanted another one because I couldn’t have enough. Our mains came with our order of slow roasted, aged, Canadian AAA Prime rib of beef and I’d advice for all beef takers to get a Medium-Rare, and came with summer vegetables that I finished every one on my plate. My dessert was ace, with Maple Walnut roulade and candied walnut meringue, it tasted like gem after such a heavy meal. I didn’t want to leave, and I wished my family was with me, that one day I’ll bring them there again to experience what I did.
Jun and his mom shared the 360 Towering Platter (As seen above) and enjoyed themselves. I’m hooked on looking at our satisfied faces and having been here, every day had been about food and more food.
Did you know? The CN Tower in Toronto, Ontario, was the world’s tallest freestanding structure from 1975-2007. It was that amazing. As compared to Taipei 101 that I’ve been to, all I had was a strawberry fudge. I might need more discipline for daily runs when I get back.
