Concord Place Pavilion visits – Sask, Quebec, Ontario
I managed to find my appetite again and headed out to sample the offerings of the Pavilions around Concord Place. Saskatchewan was my first stop. There Pavilion is spacious, and they tend not to let too many people in at once, making it quite comfortable. BUT – be forewarned, they don’t play the Olympic events on the screens inside, instead there’s entertainment and lots of shots of Saskatchewan, which encouraged me to add it to my must visit list. Items on the menu include a tasty bison burger and a Saskatchewan lentil burger. They’ve got perogies, and I found a favourite in the sausage on a bun. Don’t miss the Saskatchewan berry tarts. Saskatchewan Day is February 23, so visit then for added festivities.
Wayne Gretzky made an appearance at the Ontario House on Friday, and line ups were rather brutal. He signed a generous amount of clothing and showcased his new wine, which is served at the Pavilion alongside Dan Akroyds. Celebraties and wineries, there’s now so many of them.
Opus catering was hired to supply the food, and they’d done a fantastic job of it. Duck shephard’s pie, Charcuterie plate, Mac and Cheese, Spring Rolls, Mini-Burgers, fries. Everything a hungry Olympic fan could want. There’s Ontario Beers and wine, the only downfall is that there’s not much to see in this area. Aparently the 4D presentation is worthwhile though, right next door.
Quebec House has lots of Entertainment and catering here is supplied by Hotel Chateau Laurier from Quebec. They’re doing sandwhiches made with smoked turkey and other Quebec meats, on Terra Bread, always a good choice. Each day the menu changes and note that poutine is not on everyday, which seems to have annoyed many in search of the well known fries, curd and gravy dish. I sampled meatballs and mashed potatoes. A tad salty, but otherwise rather nicely done. A lot of the seats are actually outdoors, so give this a miss if it is raining.
