Calling all foodies! … Or anyone who is in the mood to indulge in good food during the perfect summer weather. We have our very first restaurant review for you! Wish was featured in our ‘Embrace Disruption PR’s Best Toronto Patio Guide‘ and as promised, here is a mini-review of our lunch experience.
Located a short walk south of the busy Bloor-Yonge intersection, Wish offered us a quiet getaway with a cozy and intimate atmosphere. The rustic white decor was refreshing to walk into from the constant buzz on the street. We were quickly greeted by friendly stuff and since the sun was out, we opted for a table on the patio. Here is a picture of where we were sitting:
Needless to say, Wish does really well on the atmosphere and decor front.
Wish is currently participating in Toronto’s annual Summerlicious and so their lunch menu consisted of three courses for $15 plus taxes and gratuity. You can view their full Summerlicious menu here. Customers can also choose to order from their normal menu if they wish.
We loved this. The arancini was stuffed with cheese inside and the breadcrumbs on the outside added the perfect crunchy texture. The mushroom and side greens worked really well together as well. The portion was perfect as an appetizer.
This pasta dish was really good as well. The sauce was a little on the sour side but only due to personal preference. The turkey was delicious and the ricotta was a good addition to the dish!
The dessert looked so good when the waiter brought it over to our table, we forgot to take a picture before digging in! We ordered the Rockie Road Blondie, a chocolate brownie with nuts and creamy caramel drizzled on top. It was moist, chewy and heavenly. The generous portion was nothing to complain about either!
Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience at Wish. It is run by friendly and attentive staff, it offers a nice rustic atmosphere and most importantly, it has good food. Try it for yourself! They are located at 3 Charles St. E. in Toronto.
Oh! We must also recommend their Blue Crab Cake with Tomatillo Salsa and Aioli. Get it – seriously.
We hope you enjoyed this mini-review. We will keep you posted on our next food adventures! Happy eating.
