Bestellen is a relatively new restaurant opened by former Top Chef Canada finalist Rob Rossi. I have heard great things about this restaurant and decided to come give it a try. From the moment I walked in, I felt comfortable and welcome. The staff were incredibly knowledgable, friendly and attentive. Now..on to the good stuff...
We started with a crisp, cool bottle of white wine (Pinot Grigio)
Selection of house made charcuterie, pickles, mustard and bread. I really enjoyed this platter. The meats were full of flavour. The pickled vegetables and grainy mustard were a nice pair with the meat.
'Nudja and mozzarella Arepa's. These were surprisingly very spicy. The spicy sausage, paired with the fresh mozzarella was a nice balance. 
Lamb meatballs with fried egg in a tomato sauce. Everything in this dish worked beautifully together. The lamb held it's own and was not overpowered by the other flavours. 
Bestellen Burger (with caramelized onions, raclette, house made brioche and frites)
I LOVED this burger. It was perfectly seasoned and the meat was juicy. The caramelized onions added a sweetness which I loved. I loved the fresh made brioche....did I mention I loved this burger?
Ricotta Fritters with rhubarb compote, blood oranges and ricotta creme. All I have to say about this dessert is ... go try it. It was superb. 

I clearly really enjoyed my experience at Bestellen. I would highly reccommend trying this place. From food, to service, to ambiance ...everything was top notch. 

Happy Eating!

  1. YUM! Okay, this photoset just heightened my cravings! >.< I especially love the presentation because it gives me an overwhelming feeling – and that is one of the most important elements of food service. Well, one thing’s for sure: I’ll definitely visit Bestellen one of these days! :]
