Bites & Beers at The Bittmore

It was my friend, Freya's, birthday and after almost killing ourselves at a pole dancing class(don't ask), we headed to a nearby pub for some well deserved eats. 

The Bittmore is a well-laid out pub with plenty of bar, booth and table seating as well as a patio. There is also a stage for bands and karaoke. This venue welcomes people of all ages. Every time I've been there, it's been a very diverse crowd. Upon my first read of the menu, I was impressed; it looked like the gourmet pub food had come out this way!  

The birthday girl insisted we try the Baked Brie. It's her favourite appetizer here. Besides, it's her birthday, so we couldn't say no and we were glad we didn't. It came with toasted slices of baguette and cranberry salsa. The sweet and heat of the salsa went perfectly with the mild flavour of the brie and the crunch of the baguette. Needless to say, it didn't last long. 


My friends ordered the Mandarin Chicken Salad, Honey Mustard Chicken Wrap and I chose the Bistro Burger; we all went with the sweet potato fries as a side. Betty made quick work of her giant salad; I was lucky to get a pic! She loved it! Two of my friends ordered the wrap, one liked it, the other didn't. I guess if you're not a huge mustard fan, this isn't the wrap for you. She said the honey mustard was too mustardy, too strong. I was super excited about my burger. It was topped with a slice of mozzarella and shredded apple. The burger itself was juicy and delicious, but none of the other toppings made much of an appearance. I couldn't taste the apple at all and the cheese was very mild.  
The sweet potato fries were fantastic. They were crispy and tasty and not greasy at all. They even came with an addicting dipping sauce. Well, it was addicting until after; all of us that ate it had the WORST breath. We couldn't seem to get rid of it. We tried drinking more beer, mints, gum; nothing worked! It's definitely worth eating, just make sure you don't breath directly at anyone for awhile. :P 

The service was great. I read a few reviews about bad service, but I guess it depends on when you go. We were there on a Sunday night.  

The food was hot, the beer was cold and we all had a great time. 

I'd go back, I hear their wings are great!
