Winterlicious: Colborne Lane

My third restaurant on my winterlicious tour was Colborne Lane.  I went with two of my good friends G and H.  This restaurant has also been on my wish list for awhile because of its association with Origin – so my expectations for the food were really high.  We began the night with cocktails of course and I started with the Tom Yum soup.  Although pretty tasty, what I loved was the presentation – a bowl with the prawn, crispy chicken wing and shiitake mushroom is brought to the table and the broth in a separate cast iron tea pot and poured table side.  My main dish was braised pork belly and well what can I say – you can’t really go wrong with pork belly.  By far, the best part of the meal was the desserts.  Mine, the chocolate bar with caramel peanut dust, freeze dried blueberries and the most devine banana sorbet!  Not only was it pleasing to look at but I practically licked the plate!  The other dessert, a plate of alternating dulce de leche cheesecake, coffee cake and a blood orange sorbet – delish!  As you can tell the food was great but I will warn you, if you’re used to eating a lot more you may leave feeling hungry 🙂
