Boehmer – Summerlicious

Boehmer (@BoehmerResto) by Chef Boehmer (@ChefBoehmer) was a must try for me this year for summerlicious hence why I made reservations a month in advance! So many foodies have been raving about the food here but not so much the price – so I thought $45 for a licious dinner would be the perfect steal!

Located on Ossington, Boehmer is a sophisticated and elegant space serving dishes featuring locally grown and harvested Canadian ingredients.

Loved the elegant decor here – a very modern chic space; Boehmer is a spacious long restaurant with tons of paintings covering the walls – a beautiful chandelier hovering the long communal table in the middle of the restaurant.

Open kitchen concept located towards the back of the restaurant

The restaurant has a large window at the front of restaurant – bright lighting – very inviting.


(Left) Ossington Cup ($10.00)  – Cucumber, Pimm’s No.1, Gin, Lavender Syrup, Lemon, Ginger Ale

(Right) Lord Bergamot ($12.00) – Pear Infused Vodka, Earl Grey Syrup, Dubonnet Rouge, White pepper

  • I ordered the Lord Bergamot and didn’t enjoy it at all… The Pear infused vodka was extremely strong – the drink almost tasted like medicine (the bitter kind) =S

Potato Rosti with Frisée, Arugula Soft Quail Egg & Bacon Lardon

  • The starter was very pleasant & appetizing – I particularly enjoyed the potatos rosti – it was like eating a healthier version of a hash brown
  • The arugula was very light and tasty which made it so much more refreshing

Forest Mushroom Soup & Herbed Crème Fraîche

  • My friend ordered the forest mushroom soup as her starter – I could tell she quite enjoyed it

Since the service was rather slow… I ended up snapping more photos of the beautiful artwork on the walls.

Grilled Hanger Steak with Frites, Onion Rings & Chipotle Jus

  • After almost waiting 30 minutes, our entrees finally arrived – this was by far the best summerlicious entree I had…
  • the hanger steak was cooked to a perfect medium rare – wonderfully pink and juicy – the tender steak was carefully sliced into pieces when served.
  • Loved the presentation of this dish – the frites and onion rings were quite tasty
  • This was my overall favourite!

Banana Bread Pudding with Butterscotch & Coconut Cream

  • So.. I’m usually never a big fan of banana bread pudding but wow!.. words cannot describe how amazing this was! .. baked fresh and served hot! 
  • The pudding with butterscotch was sooo soft like pillows! The highlight of the dessert was the coconut cream that gave the pudding a little bit of kick!
  • Just looking at it makes me drool

Devil’s Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Mousse & Pecan Crunch

  • I had a small bite of my friend’s chocolate cake but I don’t recall the taste.. probably because I was too into my banana bread pudding!

Lemon Semifreddo with Blueberry Compote & Crunchy Meringue

  • The lovely couple that sat beside us noticed my SLR and started asking questions and eventually found out about my blog (lol)
  • The husband loved the presentation of this dish and asked if I wanted to take photos and share it on my blog – So nice & friendly of them =)

Aside from the extremely long wait for our entrees, the food was delicious, satisfied with the portions, we both enjoyed our foods and had a great time! I would love to return to Boehmer in the future, but the prices may be a bit too high for me. All in all, this was a very memorable licious meal – totally worth the price – Highly recommend!
