I came to Mildred's Temple a while back during Summerlicious and for some odd reason forgot to post of about the amazing meal I had.
Located in the Liberty Village; this space blew me away with the open space concept, the minimalistic decor and furniture and the floor-to-almost ceiling windows that wrap around half the restaurant.
We started off with a warm cheddar thyme biscuit & whipped apple butter
with spiced pecans.
Joyce and I got the chilled cucumber soup with buttermilk, crab & dill, one of the best chilled soups I've ever had.
Cherry got the shrimp & crab cakes, crunchy panko-crusted cakes with jicama, kafir lime & fresh cilantro served with a chili-lime emulsion.
For my main I got red wine braised bison short rib with soft herbed polenta, garlic sautéed greens & jus.
Super tender and rich.
Joyce chose for Mildred’s bolly-cauli, roast curried cauliflower tossed with quinoa, caramelized onion, wilted spinach & green grapes topped with a dollop of pressed yogurt. I was surprised on how good the vegetarian option was, they somehow made the cauliflower very meaty and satisfying.
Cherry got the panko fried chicken with warm gingered bean salad, citrus soy vinaigrette & scallion emulsion.
For dessert we got one of each option.
Chocolate marquis with whipped cream, salt caramel & pretzel crumble.
MTK profiteroles, known throughout the land, filled with Lindt milk chocolate ice cream & drizzled with warm chocolate & caramel sauce.
Harvest honey cake with seasonal fruit compote, whipped cream & toasted oats.
Overall I had a great meal at Mildred's and I can honestly say Mildred's is one my top 5 favourite 'Licious experiences I've had over the years, I've been dying to come back for their brunch menu which sounds fantastic!
