Azure [Summerlicious 2016]

Thanks Azure Restaurant & Bar which is inside the InterContinental Toronto Centre (@ICTorontoCentrefor inviting us back to taste their Summerlicious menu and once again it was delicious with same amazing service. Their Summerlicious prix-fixe menu are for $28 Lunch and $48 Dinner with Vegetarian option.

Truffle Honey Fig & Prosciutto Tartine
~ focaccia + mascarpone + balssamic + baby watercress (vegetarian)
Love figs, so I just had to order this and it tasted as good as it looks. Love the yummy figs with the salty prosciutto with the sweet & tart balsamic; also love the use of a soft yummy focaccia.

Crab & Sweet Corn Fritters
~ pea shoots + shaved fennel + remoulade
These look a little bit burnt to be frank and couldn't really taste any crab but the sweet corn flavors really came through... maybe time to change the oil?

Dillon's Rye BBQ Glazed Duck Breast
~ peach & cucumber salsa + wheat berry salad + cilantro yogurt
Could never resit duck on a menu and this was perfectly cook and love the summery peach & cucumber salsa that I totally want to replicate at home. This is a perfect summer dish with the light flavors and components like the wheat berry salad with the refreshing yogurt.

Pan Seared Pickerel
~ potato darphin + ratatouille + macadamian & red chili pesto
Love how they always have a fish dish for their licious menu and it's always perfectly cook. This time around, the best part was the yummy potato pancake underneath.

Limoncello Cherry Pie
~ sweet crust + red currant gelato + creme anglaise
Having difficulties deciding our desserts, our server said this was his favorite so that's exactly what I went for. Love that the pie was served warm with the cold ice cream on top.... in my opinion, restaurant should always mention when a dessert will be served warm/hot since that's exactly what I'll choose. And just look at the presentation, totally Instagram worthy

Peaches 'N' Cream Cheesecake
~ lavender shortbread + orange blossom meringue + blood peach puree

The decor and the staff may be a bit old-school but I love Azure for it.
The service is always so attentive and friendly
Food always great, nothing fancy but delicious and rather large portion even for licious.

*** This meal was complimentary. Opinions are my own***
