LoLo Restaurant for Summerlicious 2010
2590 Yonge St
Came to this restaurant with my coworkers two weeks ago.
Reason of choice? 1. The Value. It’s only $25 for a 3-course meal dinner! and knowing that all of us, slaves at work, are just not paid enough financially. 2. The Name. People thought it resembles my last name and made a joke out of it.
Lolo was quite flexible with the reservation as we called a few times to change the time and number of seats since our party was quite large to accomodate 10-14 people.
I had the Beef carpaccio with lemon, olive oil, shaved parmesan. I liked it!
This is the Mushroom crostini .
Grilled flat iron steak with green peppercorn sauce. For me, I thought the steak was over-cooked when I had asked for medium-rare. Meat was too stiff.
Sauteed tilapia with roasted pepper coulis.
Roasted Cornish hen with a citrus basil glaze. This was definitely bigger than a cornish hen and from what it seems like, there were quite some heavy bones in that chicken.
Unfortunately the tiramisu was unavailable so I tried the Crème brulee, which looks like something that I can make too. =P This Apple strudel with vanilla ice cream looks well-prepared which was my 2nd choice on the desserts menu.
Others had the, Lemon tart and Belgian chocolate torte.
Overall, I thought it was a great experience with great value. Portions were relatively big and the taste was acceptable considering for the great value in price.
