We felt like a patio this one afternoon, and found ourselves going to Toad n Turtle
on 130th Avenue SE, and there, we got seated on the "side patio" instead of their roof top patio as apparently it was closed. There's tons of parking especially after hour when the home construction store is closed. We weren't too happy with the side patio as it's right next to the street and it wasn't as pleasant as it could have been, however our experience was still great!
We ordered a few appetizers with drinks, so we started out with my Virgin Caesars
which was alright here. The drink wasn't too spicy yet it wasn't watered down, so it was fine!
We then got an order of their Rib Bites
, which were bone-in pork ribs with salt and pepper seasoning. The ribs were really good and there wasn't a lot of them either. But, they were really nicely prepared! We were expecting dry ribs, but the sauce wasn't bad at all!
The other appetizer that we ordered was their Coconut Prawns
, and there were 8 coconut coated Tiger Prawns and it came with a delicious ginger/garlic dipping sauce.
Overall, the food and the "inside" environment was really nice. I'm sure we would have really enjoyed their rooftop patio instead of inhaling the vehicles exhaust while having a quiet afternoon. The food although was delicious, we thought the portions were a little small. The service was good, so we don't have much to complain about!
