White Spot Restaurant #122

Yesterday after an appointment downtown, I told Don I would take him for lunch. Due to the crazy one way streets downtown and the very difficult ways to get where we really wanted to go, we took off and tried this restaurant for the first time. Besides I like White Spot, especially if they are clean and cheery.

When we arrived, it wasn’t quite Noon so it wasn’t full. Our delightful server, Val, came over and took our order for beverages and food.

Anyone who knows me knows I don’t try something new every time I go to a restaurant. Since I was 15 years old, the ONLY thing I order is a Monty Mushroom Burger with Extra Sauce and Don teased me, letting me think he was going to order the same thing, but, alas and alack, he ordered the Shrimp sandwich.

While we waited for our lunch to arrive we chatted about whatever came to mind and watching the people start to pour in. When the restaurant is clean, staff are happy and paying attention to their customers, it is a sure sign they will always return. Oh, yeah and the food must be awesome as well.

Don’s sandwich was freaking awesome. So full of whole shrimp, not minced up “guess what it is” filling. Also, he said there were no onions in it. He really enjoyed it but, with a little warning you out there, both our orders were large. So large in fact, the Manager came over to check if the food was okay. We assured him it was but, we were stuffed to the brim. Then, with a smile on his face, he asked us if we wanted dessert. Oh no….

Both the restaurants here are super, one at each end of our City, so you have a choice.

Moxie’s Grill and Bar, Abbotsford, B.C>

When we had to come to Abbotsford for Don’s eye surgery, we met with two of our dearest friends, Noreen and George. We told them to pick a restaurant where we could take them to dinner and they chose wisely, I must add, Moxie’s.

After being seated, the beverage order was taken and we all perused the menu. George immediately jumped on the Blackened Chicken Burger, Don chose the Mushroom Sirloin Steak dinner and both Noreen and I chose the Rigatoni in a Mushroom/Red Wine sauce.

Ladies first: the rigatoni dinner was more than awesome. If we were not in public I can tell you, I would have licked the plate. It was phenomenal. YUM!

Okay, Men Now: George said his burger was really good and Don (3 days later still talking about it) said it was THE BEST grilled steak dinner he has had in years.

Now, as if we needed it, we went for dessert. I have to say, in our defence, each couple ordered one and SHARED it. Noreen and George had the Salted Caramel Cheese Cake and Don and I had the warm Chocolate Lava Cake with Vanilla Ice Cream.

Our server, Jessica, was a delight and always smiling. The restaurant was clean, and very comfortable and the Manager was also extremely nice to one and all. We couldn’t stop raving about the food so if we sounded crazy, it is your fault. The food was awesome and yes, we will be back SOON!.
