Bannock is O&B’s newest restaurant, located in the heart of the Entertainment District – literally right cross from the Eaton Centre. The location is extremely convenient for shoppers & those that work nearby – Bannock has a dining section on the left, a part coffee cafe and a grab and go section – conveniently available for those in the midst of the hustle and bustle.
I visited Bannock on a week night to grab a late dinner. About 1/3 of the place was filled as it was almost closing.
Their menus were also used as place mats. Very simple and easy to read. Definitely didn’t want to be overwhelmed by choice after what it seemed to be an extremely long day at work.
. Bannock is known for serving Canadian Comfort food so I opted for their:
Bannock Caesar ($7)
- Romaine hearts, bannock croutons, horse radish
- The bannock Ceasar is definitely unique- I tasted a tint of onions to make it more flavourful
- For those that don’t know – Bannock is a variety of flat bread that is widely used in Scotland
- The bannock croutons reminded me Chinese dough fritters – yummy!
Burger + Root Crisp ($14)
- High river Alberta ground Brisket
Peppered Flatiron Steak ($23)
- Duck fat potatoes, Susanna’s salsa Verde
I can’t comment on the burger & the steak as I did not try it. However, both my friends didn’t enjoy their entrée(s) – their was nothing special and memorable about it.
Roast Duck Poutine Pizza ($15)
- Curds, fries, duck
- This pizza was humongous for 1 person – I’m known for eating A LOT in one sitting but I only finished 1/3 and packed the rest
- This roast duck poutine pizza was uber delicious – the melted cheese curds and fries were smothered all over the crispy pizza dough – felt like I was in heaven haha
Overall, I thought the service was friendly (however, she did forget to bring my friend’s drink) and the food was affordable. I would definitely come back to indulge in their roast duck poutine pizza. I can’t vouch for the other foods they serve at Bannock as I have read many mixed reviews.
