Summerlicious Gets Me Again – Stop 2: Lena

After wanting to visit Lena for awhile, I finally made it for Licious. It is a gorgeous venue with clean lines and classy décor. Although there’s no strict dress code, I’d recommend wearing something a little nicer than the jeans and tshirt that I wore. Awkward. 

For a starter, we both ordered the Chilled Albacore Tuna Ceviche. The thin slices of tuna were tender and fresh. The crispy fava beans and crema added extra layers of texture making this dish very interesting.  
I couldn’t resist the Grilled Beef Tenderloin Brochette as my main course. The beef was so tender and juicy, it practically chewed itself. Perfectly seasoned, I wished I had a second brochette! The large mound of mashed potatoes were equally addicting and I managed to clean my plate. The side of roasted red peppers added another dimensions to the textures on the plate.   

For dessert, I went with the Ontario Strawberries and my friend had Troy’s Warm Donuts. The strawberries were perfect portion after a savoury meal. The strawberries were sweet with no tartness, as Ontario Strawberries are known to be. The vanilla cream was mellow and helped balance the sweetness. The donuts were not as big of a hit. They were a little hard and heavy for a dessert after a meal like that. 
Service was prompt. Our server provided great service, but didn’t engage with us. I tried to have a conversation and threw a few jokes out there, but all I got was a polite smile in response.   

Just be careful when asking for water that you don’t end up with a $7 bottle of still water. Specifically ask for tap water, if that’s what you want, which is what I actually wanted. The beer selection was ok, no craft, but a few decent imports. My friend said the wine list was great though. A lot of people were ordering cocktails too. 

The food was so good, I want to go back to try their regular menu! 

Cheers,
