You probably already figured out that this isn’t a beauty post — but is it okay if we make today an exception for today? Oh, it is? Wonderful! About a week ago, I was invited to a Friends and Family Event at Elephant and Castle’s newly renovated location. If you haven’t heard about Elephant and Castle, it’s a pub and restaurant that combines English classics with a Canadian twist. Yes, they do have an entire section of the menu devoted to poutine — don’t worry.
Would I go back here? Yes!
Not only is this place relatively (read: very) large, but their expansive menu is impressive — you don’t usually expect this from a pub. It’s split into 3 sections, so it doesn’t feel like you’re just in ‘any ol’ pub’, because Elephant and Castle maintains the ambiance of a restaurant. They not only have classics such as Shepperd’s Pie, but also spicy mahi mahi tacos, jerk chicken burgers, jalapeno mac n’ cheese, lettuce wraps, and tomato linguine; everyone wins. If you have food allergies, don’t worry — our waitress was very thorough in checking if we were allergic to anything. From the greeter at the door, to our waitress (Jordan) and the managers — they all provided impressive customer service. If you’re in the GTA there’s one down on Yonge and Gerrard, but the newly renovated location is in the Financial District on King Street (close to St. Andrew’s church, up the street from St.Andrew subway station).
