White Spot’s new Comfort Foods Menu

What can I say about White Spot that hasn’t been said before… Everyone knows the story of Nat Bailey and how this iconic franchise got its start, and of course everyone has had a Triple O burger at one point or another.

I went there to sample their new Comfort Foods Menu – prepared by executive chef Chuck Currie, the menu focuses on classic dishes such as spaghetti and meatballs and crispy buttermilk chicken.

We started with the Roasted Chicken Artichoke Flatbread Garlic roasted chicken, artichoke hearts, spinach, Fontina and Parmesan cheese with lemon chilli cream sauce. ($9.99)

The flatbread was very crispy and the sauce had a nice tanginess to it. Although the chicken was a little dry, this dish was tasty enough. Loved the artichokes.

The Creamy Butternut Squash Ravioli – this is butternut squash ravioli with a cream sauce, bacon, and toasted pecans ($14). I’ll be totally honest – I didn’t like this dish one bit. It had 5 ravioli and the sauce was much too heavy. I didn’t even finish my meal. The sauce was like eating melted butter mixed with heavy cream.

 As you can see from the picture above, the sauce had a thick oily film and the ravioli was almost non-existant. They were also very dry. On top of it, as if we needed extra fat, the dish came with bread smothered in garlic butter.
Another dish we tried was the Dijon Bigger Burger – this massive burger came with back bacon, sauteed onions, fontina cheese and a caramelized onion mustard. ($12.99)

This is a big burger, and the sweetness of the onions gives it an interesting taste. From all the dishes, I found this one to be the better value for your money. This burger was full of flavour.

The Crispy Buttermilk Chicken Salad ($11.99) is a chicken breast marinated and lightly breaded. Now this was comfort food. The breaded chicken was very tasty. The salad was a mix of fresh greens in a creamy garlic lime dressing with pieces of smoked cheddar.

For dessert, the comfort foods menu offers the Personal-Sized Dutch Apple Pie ($4.99) – The crust was amazing, so flaky. Also the apples were nice and crispy, lightly baked with lemon, cinnamon and brown sugar.
Topped with a scoop of creamy vanilla bean ice cream and toffee sauce, this was a fantastic dessert.
