With its central location and ample parking lot, Confusion Corner is a popular meeting place for many. Last evening the place was hopping and it was a Tuesday night! In the last couple of years, it is likely the place that I have been to the most and I thought that it was high time that I sing its accolades. With the exception of once, when we completely overwhelmed our new waitress, the service was been efficient and attentive. Learn more about this at happy hour
Since this is an after work get-together, it’s the food that guarantees the success of the evening, and that takes top marks. A couple of times this winter, I’ve enjoyed a “crunch” salad -garnished with a couple of kinds of nuts to provide the promised texture. I tried to find it on their on line menu just now but was not successful. So perhaps it is a new item and does not have a permanent place on the menu or perhaps the on line menu needs adjusting.
Last night as I enjoyed Mama’s Meatloaf (baked ground beef with capicola ham and a blend of three cheeses on a ciabatta roll), my media friends were loving the Panko-Crusted Chicken Tenders. They are served in a very unusual manner-upright on a skewer. They may soon become the cities’ best as I heard that The Keg Steakhouse and Bar are removing theirs from the next menu.
But the star of their fare is the Pesto Chicken Pizza. I dream of it sometimes and have tried to recreate it at home. They have found a dish which combines many of my favourite tastes and I TRY to resist ordering it but cave in, more often than not. The basil pesto, feta cheese, artichoke hearts, roasted garlic and chicken are assembled in the perfect combination of savoury and salty. The crust is delicate and yet sturdy enough to hold the weighty toppings.
We’re really looking forward to patio weather again and CC has one of the most unique rooftop patios around with a retractable awning in case of a sudden shower. Ah Spring – We can’t wait to see your shining face!
