A couple of week ago, I went to check out Street Eatery, located in the west end of downtown. I would never have heard about this place if it were not for the invite that I received from Alchemy Communications to try out this little restaurant. Street Eatery serves up globally inspired street food using fresh, seasonal and local ingredients, with vegetarian and vegan options too.
Street Eatery is well-known for their “Street” Shakes, which are milkshakes garnished with all your favourite sweet treats. We indulged ourselves and tried two of these sweet concoctions. The first was the Salty n’ Sweet ($14), which consisted of a salted caramel peanut butter shake with a chocolate frosted rim with chocolate gems and peanut butter cups and was topped with a Twix bar, salted caramel cream puffs, mini pretzel sticks, whipped cream and chocolate & salted caramel drizzle. As well, we tried the Berry Crush ($14), which was a mixed berry shake with a citrus frosted rim with sour gummies and nerds, and was topped with a pixie stick, sour skewer, whipped cream and cotton candy. These shakes are definitely a meal in itself and guaranteed to give you a sugar rush!
From the food menu, we started off sampling the Macaroni Makhani ($8; option to add chicken for $4), which consisted of cavatappi pasta baked in a spicy tomato infused cheese sauce with flavours that reminded me of Butter Chicken.
Next up was the King Tostada ($12), which was served on two crunchy corn tortillas with a choice of chicken, pork belly or sautéed shrimp. Of course, we chose the pork belly! The tostadas were topped with refried beans, pico de gallo, roasted corn, romaine lettuce, cilantro, feta and finished with a chili lime aioli.
For our second entrée, we tried the Don Torta ($13), with grilled chicken, pork belly, refried beans, pico de gallo, romaine lettuce, guacamole, jalapeno cream cheese, and spicy mayo atop a warm soft ciabatta bun. For our side, we chose their house made thin-cut potato chips which were top-notch and highly addictive.
Overall, this visit to Street Eatery was a fun experience and I definitely won’t forget the sugar high I got from those “Street” shakes.
