Patois

Last week, I visitedΒ PatoisΒ with a few other food lovers like myself (@foodinthecitytoronto, @foodsoftorontoΒ and @tdotglutton). Have you ever seen a bunch of foodies eat at a restaurant? Well, if you haven’t, you are definitely missing out on the funniest sight ever. We needed a table with natural lighting, and since Patois only has one table right by the window, we had to specially request for it when we called in to make the reservation a few days in advance. (Tip here is that they take reservation!)

One great thing I loved about Patois is that they have a sharing menu called “The Whole Shebang” for $119 (not including drinks, desserts, tax and tips). It’s a great deal because, for four people ording our own individual dishes, it probably would’ve added up to cost moreΒ per person. So, why not sample all their popular dishes!?

Another look at our specially requested table! πŸ™‚ Thankfully the nice and helpful staff from Patois can accomodate our request!

Spiced rum, coconut rum, pineapple juice, lemon, salted rim

20160524_184723_mh1464141187044Coconut & Rum – $14
Fresh whole coconut & bacardi rum

I loved my drink! It was so refreshing and fitting for the hot weather on that day. I especially love the visual asthetic aspect of this drink! (I have a thing for drinking out of a real fruit.)

20160524_190752_mh1464141417232Patois Rum Punch – $14 / $52
Earl grey infused white rum, peach liqeur, lemon, soda, OJ & pineabble

20160524_190320_mh1464141259486Edamame
Dashi Butter, Spicy Furikake, Bonito

All I got to say is that the sauce complimented the edamame perfectly. It really was seasoned to perfection. This was a cold dish, so it’s great to have during the summer when the weather is super hot.

Two cocktail patties, bacon, Swiss cheese fondue, sriracha

Closer shot of the Pineapple bun burger. Look how amazing that looks. It’s savory but it also hasΒ a hint of sweetness from the Chinese pineapple bun.

20160524_191059_mh1464141793793Crunchy Chinese Salad
Napa cabbage, romaine, wonton crisps, spicy plum dressing

20160524_194740_mh1464142027907Jamaican Coleslaw
Creamy cabbage, carrot and scallions

20160524_195042_mh1464142232124Dirty Fried Rice
Red sausage, sweet soya sauce, Cajun trinity, peas and farm egg

This is the true definition of Chinese and Jamaican fusion! I’ve had a lot of fried rice before, but not many comparable to this dish!

Churrasco, rotisserie roasted

20160524_205146_mh1464142430162Fancy brownie for dessert?! Yes please.

Verdict: Everything on the Whole Shebang menu were amazing! IΒ was a bit skeptical about theΒ whole Chinese and Jamaican fusion, but after going to Patois, I WANT MORE! Great service (very accomodating and informative), and amazing food! Next time I go back, I will definately try out their other items that weren’t on the Shebang menu!
