Restaurant Review – Chef’s Menu

Chef’s Menu – Warm Gingerbread and Carrot Cake

I went to Chef’s Menu recently with a few girlfriends for dessert, and thought it would be a great opportunity to showcase them in a review.

I have been to Chef’s Menu many times since it opened and have always been pleased with the food as well as the service.

Warm Gingerbread

My friends both ordered the gingerbread and were pleased with it. It was nice and warm served with sweet sauce on the bottom and ice cream.  If you like gingerbread – this is worth a try!

Carrot Cake

I have to say that I had high hopes for this carrot cake, because I was trying it the night before I knew I was going to be trying my own – so I was hoping for a few tips!

Unfortunately, this disappointed me, something I had not expected since everything else I’ve had at this restaurant had always impressed me.

My rating of this carrot cake is 6 out of 10.

I enjoyed the cake, but there was something off about the icing. I kept trying to pinpoint what about it was ‘off’ and with my friends help – we determined that the icing was just too tangy and all cream cheese taste with no sweet. Just like a block of whipped cream cheese.

This will certainly not stop me from  returning to Chef’s Menu, however, because everything else I’ve tried there has been excellent.

Have you been there? What did you think? Leave a comment!

    I love that restaurant. I never had the carrot cake but the quality of food there surpasses many “downtown” restaurants.

    I was here the other day for a Sackville Business Association meet and greet. I enjoyed the food. Have you made it to the Nu Cafe in Lower Sackville yet? The opened about 5 weeks ago.
