5 Comfort Food Dishes In KW To Keep You Warm This Winter
We have officially had our first snowfall here in the Kitchener Waterloo Region and that means that the weather is only going to get colder for the next couple of months. With that being said, food can be a great way to find some warmth in all of the snow and bitter winds. Whether it be last-minute plans with friends or a meal you’ve been looking forward to all week long, here are 5 of the Best Comfort Food Dishes inside KW Restaurants to warm you up and help you make it through this winter:
“Banquet Burger” at Harmony Lunch – A burger is easy to make well, however, it is much harder to perfect. That being said Harmony lunch seems to have perfected the craft. The Banquet Burger is a perfect example of this. It’s a single patty with bacon, cheddar, pickle, tomato, lettuce, onion, ketchup, mustard, and ‘har-mayo’. It’s the fact that this burger is kept so simple and yet so flavourful, that it could be considered the perfect burger. This juicy burger is perfect to enjoy after a long day out in the cold.
“Banana Foster Pancakes” at Darlise Cafe – This hidden gem in Downtown Kitchener is serving up some of the best breakfasts in the city! Once you locate this Cafe near the Walper Hotel, take a seat and order the Banana Foster Pancakes. These fluffy clouds of delight are topped with warm banana foster sauce, pecans & bananas. You will quickly forget the days of eating pancakes with maple syrup because this Foster Sauce is pretty life-changing. There is something very cozy about Darlise Cafe which makes it the perfect place to enjoy brunch with family or friends this winter.
“Ricotta Gnocchi” at 271West – This Family Owned Restaurant has an amazing and authentic Italian menu filled with meals that never leave you disappointed. One dish, in particular, is a house specialty of theirs. Tender Ricotta Gnocchi are accompanied by mushrooms, sun-dried tomatoes and covered in a cambozola cream sauce to create a beautiful and bursting with flavour dish. The combination of the food, friendly staff and romantic ambiance make this a great ‘date night’ restaurant to visit this season.
“Cajun Jambalaya” at Lancaster Smokehouse – The Lancaster Smokehouse is well known locally for having some of the best barbecue in the area, but this featured warming dish is something different than barbecue. This southern favorite Cajun Jambalaya is going to heat you up from the inside out. Chicken, smoked andouille sausage and shrimp, with rice in a seafood-tomato broth. This dish is very generously spiced and full of flavour…not for the faint of heart.
“Chevapi” at Veslo Family Restaurants – This classic Serbian dish is comprised of grilled pork and beef sausages served inside of their homemade lepina bread. With the option to add cheese and onions to this dish it is sure to be a unique and tasty experience. The authentic experience is heightened by the small business feel you get when conversing with the owners. A cozy and warming experience all around. Chevapi are a must try this Winter!
