Ellison's Bistro

  • 10th Feb, 2005 at 1:43 PM

Julie and I went to Ellison's Bistro (14 Charles Street West, Kitchener, ON. 519-744-2075) for dinner yesterday before I had to leave on a bus for Toronto. The restaurant is right across from the Kitchener transit centre, so it was quite easy to find.

We were greeted at the door by Elvis, the head chef. We told him we were recommended here by Prof. Ragde, and that we were interested in trying his Caribbean cuisine.

We sat down and were treated to some nice rolls. Then came our bowls of pepper-pot soup. Julie was particularly fond of the flavour and I was impressed by how well the okra cooked. Very tasty, with no overpowering flavours.

We were next presented with the most beautifully plated jerk chicken that I had ever seen. The presentation was very French. The jerk was quite mild but very flavourful, and the chicken was blackened quite pleasantly. Both of us approved.

I was stuffed, but Julie had the sweet potato pudding drizzled with a guava sauce for desert. She exclaimed that it was wonderful. Elvis seemed pleased that we liked his food, and we were pleased to dine there.

If you haven't gone already and are living in K-W, you really should. It's a little on the expensive side for student fare, but well worth the money.

Thanks for the recommendation! I'm not a fan of Rainbow's jerk chicken, so I'll have to try Ellison's.
