While in the very sunny Penticton today for the Home & Reno Show, we stopped in at the newly re-built White Spot for a quick lunch.
To say the least, it was super busy and we had to wait a short while before being seated. After being seated, it took us a few moments to figure out what we wanted. The menu is large and it was hard to decide.
However, We did order. Don had the Clam Chowder soup and ordered the “baked potato” poutine. He didn’t care for the Clam Chowder. He found the clams were ‘too chewy’, overcooked, and under seasoned. The poutine was a little different. It had all the trimmings a baked potato would have i.e. bacon bits, sour cream on a heap of french fries, smothered in cheese and gravy. Yeah, I know, no diet here, but it was, in our defence, tasty.
I ordered the ‘Monty mushroom and bacon poutine. Again, it had the pile of french fries, cheese, gravy, bacon and mushrooms. Almost like their famous hamburger, but…..um ….almost as tasty. Again, no diet food, but tasty.
I ordered a glass of Pinot Grigio wine and it was perfectly chilled and crisp. Don ordered a pepsi and said it was really nice and cold.
All in all we will go back. Our server, Katrina, was quite pleasant but seemed to be over whelmed with the number of customers in her section.
The surroundings are, of course, bright, shiny and new.
