February 12th marked the last day of Winterlicious. Sadly, it was only a few weeks, and it didn’t extend into reading week :c.
We went to Bosk for our final Winterlicious trip. Bosk is located at the Shangri-La Hotel in the financial district of Toronto. Momofuku is located right beside it, which give some variety to hotel guests who don’t feel like travelling around downtown for food.
The restaurant has a business casual dress code which caters to the main demographic of the area, and the type of guests at the hotel. The atmosphere felt classy and upscale because of the quiet music and spacious table setup. There was also wall that held numerous bottles of wine which contributed to upscale feeling as well. I think the restaurant makes for a great date night location for those who are staying at the hotel, or those looking for a fancy night out in the city. All of the waiters and waitresses were dressed well; some arguably better than most of the diners.
Bosk is listed as Canadian cuisine.
I’m unsure how to describe my feelings towards this dish LOL. The foie gras was interesting to say the least. I had a slightly difficult time eating it, but that’s my own personal feelings towards it. I suppose foie gras isn’t for me since I don’t have an acquired taste for it, but the greens and malba toast made it decent.
Pasta was probably the safest thing I could get on the menu. The pasta tasted good, but then again, I can’t go wrong with pasta. Although the menu says “spicy sausage,” I wouldn’t call it spicy, even as a person who doesn’t have a tolerance for spicy foods. But it had a light punch to it~ I’ll give them kudos for presentability, since it looked nice with the cheese and garnish.
Once again, the dessert has prevailed as the best part of the meal. The compote tasted great with the pineapple and shredded coconut. The pina colada sorbet definitely tasted like the actual drink, so I assume that there was a little bit of alcohol in it due to the strong taste. I think this was a good conclusion to my meal ^^
