Weekly Feature: The Grad Lounge – Make Way For Bruschetta!

3 Comments

You know the bruschetta is delicious when even my picky eater of a sweetie who hates tomatoes likes it!  I love bruschetta because of its versatility.  I have a weakness for things like prosciutto  with olive oil and capers, or smoked salmon, or mussels and oysters, and I’ve tried bruschetta made in different ways from different places like the avocado bruschetta from Southern Accent which is yummy as hell!  Crunchy grilled bread rubbed with garlic and olive oil would make anybody drool just by thinking about it and The Grad Lounge’s dish of bruschetta is a vegetarian version, juicy and fresh with lots of diced veggies and a reeeeally nice helping of melted cheese! 

The appetizer dish (3 for $3.95)  comes with 3 wedges of crispy bread topped with diced green bell pepper, juicy tomatoes, red onion and lots of melted marble cheese!  The bruschetta is available on The Grad Lounge’s daily permanent menu and comes in 2 sizes, one with 3 wedges and the other with, I believe, 5 or 6.  This is SO good.  There’s so much yummy stuff on it that you can’t even see the bread underneath.  The cheese is ooey and gooey and the combination of juicy and melty is perfect because the veggies and cheese balance one another well, and the veggies don’t make the bread soggy.  Good for sharing, or good for stuffing your own face.

The Grad Lounge is located at 166 South Ross at the York University Keele campus.  They offer a number of daily specials in addition to their permanent menu, and provide numerous vegetarian and vegan options.

    • I know, anything with melted cheese is awesome in my book! 😀 And you’re right, it’s so colourful and makes you think of eating outside on a warm summer night or something. I can’t wait till the snow goes away and I can do that again!
