Chef Appreciation Night

I think we’ve seen Oz Kafe pop up more than once on inanutshell, which means one thing: It’s awesome. As one of our favourite spots to hang out, grab a drink, catch up with friends and listen to awesome music, Oz Kafe just keeps getting better. Why? Because of Chef Appreciation Night. If you remember  my wild ride with the Spare Parts menu presented by Beckta Dining & Wine, Chef Appreciation night comes once a month – the last Monday of the month. I wasn’t able to get a reservation for the jam- packed night last month, featuring the lads from Whalesbone Oyster house. But this month, I manged to squeeze in a reservation for two at the midnight seating to see what Courtyard Restaurant had in store for Oz’s mouth-watering patrons. It just so happened that the last Monday of the month of October was Halloween, so the bar side of the restaurant was bumping with men in drag, about 3 where’s waldos and a sweet set up of Halloween decorations. It certainly made for a lively atmosphere when sitting down for a 5 course meal. Did I mention that this 5 course meal is only $25?

The Menu was entitled “Things White People Eat”, which humourously preceeded dishes like Kraft Dinner, Liver and Onions and a BLT. Upon first glance, I was slightly disappointed with the seemingly ordinary dishes I was about to taste, but that skepticism was quickly dissipated.

{Although this was our least favourite dish, the deep-fried Kraft dinner ball was still quite tastey}

 {Hendricks Martini to keep things interesting}

{“Liver and Onions” which  was actually our favourite dish. Translation: Liver terrine with deep-fried caramelized onions}

{Tuna Casserole}

{A BLT spin-off with pork belly, spicy tomato,swiss chard and a garlic aioli. YUM}

{Pumpkin pie!!!}

Once again, tried and true, Chef Appreciation night at Oz was a smash hit and something you can expect to see much more of on inanutshell. Simply because it is such a fun experience, I will continue to bring little insights from this spectacular evening. The music is fresh, the drinks are hot and the meal is an experience all in its self, something everyone should experience at least once!
