I work adjacent to the Eaton Centre and am always happy when an interesting new choice opens up in one of their food courts. i find te most interesting place is the one deep underground, underneath Sears. While it is still dubious, at least the Thai place and the Chinese place are slightly better than the Manchu Wok...
So I was interested to note that a cajun place was opening up between them, called the Bourbon Street Grill.
But what a bizarre experience...you order similar to the Manchu wok, in that for a set price you get a choice of X number of meat dishes, Y number of vegetable dishes, served with rice or noodles. While the dishes are cajun in origin, the condiments available are soya sauce, asian hot suace and you have your choice of fork or chopsticks...
I ordered the blackened chicken and the barbecue chicken with the rice and beans, and mixed vegetables. while everything tasted OK, I quickly learned that the secret ingredient is salt. Wierd as the BBQ sauce wsn't half bad. with a slightly smoky flavour, and even a touch of molasses. Completely unexpected. Of course the hit of sodium chloride you get a few minutes later isn't worth it.
