Nith River Chop House Day 28

You got to love eating at a place that supports local business.  The Nith River Chop House uses all local meats, veggies, apple butter and even the bread comes from across the road from a neighbouring bakery.    After an entertaining interview with the chef, Matthew Cressey, I was told that they even grow some of their own herbs and he explained how every ingredient used is fresh. In the top 10 restaurants of all of Waterloo Region, they were ranked a very impressive #8 by Squidoo!  One of their specialties that got them there is the incredible schnitzel. 

The atmosphere is awesome as the place is tastefully decorated in a western country theme. 

For more info and to see their daily specials go to www.nithchophouse.com follow them on facebook http://goo.gl/bWK7X or Twitter @NithChopHouse

 Thank you Nathan Wiles for being so accommodating and helpful.  I will be visiting soon!

The Waterlot Day 25

 I remember my first job I got in grade nine working as a dishwasher in the kitchen of the Waterlot.  I also remember that every time you worked a double shift, which I did a lot because I loved working for minimum wage of $4.15, I would receive a meal.  I always looked forward to this dinner and I remember it always being so good!  Times haven’t changed that much as the kitchen is still preparing incredible entrees and they still have an amazing Sunday brunch.  Everything they serve is still carefully prepared in the kitchen and bake shoppe.  Oh, I forgot to mention how much I loved the bake shoppe and how the staff used always used to bake a little extra just for me!  Take it from me, a person who has seen firsthand the care and detail that goes into each dish they serve.  If your looking for casual. fine dining, this is a great establishment to visit

The Waterlot is a great place to have a party as they have several private dining rooms and you can even get married on the banks of the river and have your wedding here.  They also have a B&B if you’re traveling and looking for accommodations.   The Waterlot is located at 17 Huron Street New Hamburg, Ontario.

Have you ever had “Disco Fries”? Day 22

Ryan Smolkin, a business graduate from Wilfred Laurier University, started the first Smoke’s Poutinerie in Toronto, and now the franchise has over 10 locations in Ontario,  including Waterloo!  The store is open from 11am to 3am on Thursday and 11 am to 4am on Friday and Saturday.  They have over 20 different types of poutine including Nacho Grande, Bacon Cheeseburger and Curry Chicken poutine. 

Here is some interesting facts about poutine  you probably didn’t know….

It is widely accepted that poutine’s origin comes from Quebec and was invented after a trucker asked Fernand LaChance to add cheese curds to his fries in Warwick, Quebec.

Every year there is the Smoke’s Poutine eating Championship.  Contestants will have to beat the 2010-11 champion, Pat “Deep Dish” Bertoletti who set a record eating 13 pounds of poutine in 10 minutes!

Poutine is Quebec slang for “a mess”

In 1970s New York and New Jersey, poutine was served as a late-night side dish at clubs. They called it “disco fries.”

The largest poutine in the world was made in Saguenay, Que., and weighed 654 kg—about as much as a large horse.

Considered the most expensive poutine in Montreal, the poutine au foie gras is available for $23 at Au Pied de Cochon

This week begins a new little project.

This week begins a new “little” project.  I’ll be posting new and interesting blogs encompassing Waterloo Region Ont. and surrounding areas. Maybe a festival to attend. Perhaps a restaurant, fun activity or hidden gem that not a lot of people know about.  This will hopefully be a great community resource from the perspective of a lifelong resident who loves his hometown and also a great resource for those looking to relocate to Waterloo Region and surrounding areas.
