THE ULTIMATE OKANAGAN
If you are looking for a fabulous place to eat and have a drink in Kelowna, this is it!
I promise, this place won't disappoint. The criteria for a good review from me: excellent food (quality, taste, presentation), bar drinks (Caesar from Eldorado tastes different than Cesar from Central), personnel, ambiance of the place itself.
Central is located at the end of Ellis street- 1155 Ellis Street, Kelowna. It has a very cozy patio with flowers for summer/early fall days.
The barmen knows how to make perfect drinks- Caesar, Mojito, Mr. Tea, Pomegranate Ginger Paloma to name a few.
The food choices include pizza, burgers, salad bowls, sandwiches, mains, soup, spaghetti.
We ordered Tuna Tataki Burger with yam fries, Bacon chorizo mushroom pizza, Caesar, Central Churros. Tuna Tataki Burger is a mouthwatering creation bridging the West(bun, grilled onions, beet chips) with the East (tuna crusted in coriander, cumin, Thai chili aioli,nori, sesame seeds). Fresh cut fries with some sea salt are AMAZING! I wish every restaurant made tasty fries, but until they learn how to, I am going to Central.
Bacon Chorizo Mushroom pizza was fresh from the oven boasting with bacon flavor, spiciness of chorizo and succulent mushrooms.
We had to wait for churros, but it was well-worth it! Two crispy outside, tender inside logs sprinkled with chocolate ganache and salted caramel. That was like a trip to my childhood, when life was simple and sweet :)
My compliments to the Chef: Bravo Maestro, Bravo!
