The first signs of winter have taken over Toronto: Dropping temperatures, slushy roads and a serious increase in puffer jackets signal the arrival of the most miserable season of the year. But guys, it's not all bad! Let's not forget Toronto's worst season brings with it the year's best food: comfort food.
There's nothing like the pleasures of simple, delicious comfort food and Toronto's restaurants are at their A-game all winter long when it comes to delivering the absolute best winter comfort food. Craving something slow-cooked, baked or roasted for maximum coziness? From gooey macaroni and cheese to hearty casseroles to warming stews, Toronto's restaurants have our backs - especially 3 Brewers.
The microbrewery/restaurant is serving up hot new menu items just in time for parka season. Mouthwatering onion rings with maple beer sauce, avocado burgers, chicken melt sandwiches and tuna tartare topped with fresh guacamole are waiting to be tried and loved.
And we can't go on without mentioning the new poutine. The all-new Sante Fe combines deep-fried avocado, pulled chicken, pico de gallo, cheese curds, fries, hot poutine gravy and garnishes of sour cream and green onions to give you perhaps the most creative and delicious poutine ever invented.
The new flammekueches are also worth mentioning, with the Parma (prosciutto, red onions, Swiss and mozzarella cheese, baked on traditional flatbread, with tomato garlic sauce and garnished with arugula and Parmesan) and the Iberian (deliciously spicy chorizo sausage, Spanish onions sautéed in thyme and creamy goat cheese baked on our traditional flatbread) now gracing the menu.
Is your mouth watering yet? We're not done. If you plan on bringing friends to dine with, try the restaurant's share menu with incredible new options like the Cheddar & Chorizo Dip, a warm and creamy dip of cheddar and jalapeño Monterey Jack cheese, chorizo sausage, onions and blonde beer. It comes served with crispy tortilla chips. Or, if you have a big appetite and don't like to share, try the new Camembert, a rich and creamy Quebec camembert cheese with mini potatoes, cranberries, bacon and crostini. Anyone who wants to share that is crazy.
If you're in the mood to forget about winter and take your mind to somewhere a bit more, well, warm and enjoyable, try out 3 Brewers' new cocktails. Their new tropical creations include Blue Breeze (Absolut Vodka, Blue Curaçao, pink lemonade and soda), Pomtini (Absolut Vodka, Triple Sec, pomegranate juice and lime) and Beach Punch (Beefeater London Dry Gin, lime juice, pomegranate juice and Sprite). Comfort food and delicious cocktails? What more could you possibly need in life!
