This must be one of the best restaurants in Penticton. http://www.hoodedmerganser.ca/ The reason being it is in with the Casino. True…
A couple of months back, we took a cooking class with their Chef at the Osoyoos Home Hardware. He was so good and really emphasized the fresh herbs he grows right at the casino, as well as his home, for his menu.
Don ordered the Hood Burger. This is a 7 oz. sirloin burger with more condiments that he can remember. Bacon, tomato, cheese, red onion, sauce, mustard (I think). He asked for fries and ‘gravy’. They don’t make gravy but instead brought him a duck au ju with ketchup in a separate dish. His eyes are still rolling in joy.
I ordered a sandwich I had never heard of before. Mango and Gouda between two grilled pieces of a beautiful, light bread. OMG! Of course I had the fries BUT no au ju…..The only thing that upset me is that there was onion in the sandwich and it wasn’t listed on the menu. I don’t eat onions and it tainted the flavour of the sandwich. It was one of the best sandwiches ever, once I removed all traces of the onion.
Lunch was $$ and so special overlooking the Okanagan Lake….besides I won $169.00 at the Casino in less than 20 minutes. All in all, A great day.
