Le Kensington Bistro

Went to Kensington Bistro today for brunch. The food was awesome!! I had the salad maison with chicken. It was perfect. The dressing wasn't too overpowering, the greens were fresh and they were very generous with the chicken which was tender and flavourful. In my opinion, it was the perfect blend of flavours: the gorgonzola cheese, the pears, the beets, the dressing, and the greens.

My SO had the rotisserie chicken, the house favorite, which we think may only be offered on Saturdays. This was a very fun dish. It was a 1/2 chicken, presented in a cast iron dish with roasted vegetables and a light sauce that seemed to really capture the essence of a great "coming in from the cold" meal. The 1/2 chicken portion was great, but he said it was so good that he probably could have eaten a full chicken.

Our friend ordered the wild mushroom goat cheese omlette which she also really enjoyed.

Usually we don't order dessert, but the meal was so delicious that we had to order the dark chocolate mousse. Imagine double-fudge ice cream in the form of a mousse. The dish was served in a martini glass and there was what tasted like a chocolate liquor flavor that really brought this dessert up to a new level. We loved the delicate little cookies that garnished the sides of the glass.

I almost didn't want to post this review because we didn't want the place to get too crowded, but we decided to be nice and share our great find. :-)
