Benchmark is Niagara college’s NOTL restaurant and they live up to their motto of 5 star quality for 3 star prices.
The value I got for the $20 “trust us” 3 course tasting menu (selected by the apprentice chefs) is outstanding. (Or $25 with wine or beer.)
First up was a green salad with smoked salmon and scallop terrine. Excellent. Loved the light dressing.
The main was a buttermilk chicken sandwich with homemade slightly crispy fries. Fries are amazing. I love that it comes out on a hot plate. What a great combo with the Dijon mustard, coleslaw and garlic aioli.
From the dessert picture, do I have to say anymore? The Lemon bar was quite tasty. But you’ll need a knife or your fingers as it crumbled when I stuck a fork in it.
Overall what a great meal and awesome value too. I’d definitely recommend any foodies to check this out. I know I’ll be back for sure.
About Marsha Idella
It's my Edible Journey!
I love food.
I love love love chef tastings.
Eating out inspires my home cooking.
I’m passionate about sharing the foods I’ve tasted – made by someone else or me.
I love sharing my journey through food, advising where to eat and what to eat. Sometimes it’s a homemade meal, a nearby restaurant, a culinary vacation or a food themed event. I love sharing food photos and their descriptions just as much as eating, but I also need to archive my foodie photos and recommendations thus far so that I don’t forget where I’ve been.
Sometimes it is about eating the same thing twice – especially when you want to share that experience with someone or just relive it.
