Once we saw Sarah Musgrave’s review in the Gazette about Honi Rose, we decided to give it a shot. It was a weekend afternoon and we didn’t have much to do. Obviously my reflex to counter boredom is to ask myself: “what can I eat today?”. Opting to try out something new, this restaurant seemed like it would be an interesting pick for the downtown area.
When it comes to Greek street food in the downtown area, you’re either a follower of Kojax or a disciple of Arahova. As an office experiment, we decided to compare the two and we began with Kojax on St Catherine (between bishop and crescent). We ordered three types of Gyros platters – Classic, Pork and Chicken. Generous toppings of Tzatziki and spicy sauce accompanied with garlic potatoes and salad make this a very filling lunch. Everyone who leaves with food also leaves with a suite of coupons enticing you to come back for more. Had we known we may have resorted to accosting people for unwanted coupons as they leave the store… not that I’m suggesting anything.
Welcome to the food! I ordered the roasted beets to start. They were chopped to bite-sized pieces that were perfectly tender and nicely complimented by the horizontally sliced chevre chaud that lay on top of the beets like a warm, creamy blanket. Both the Jane Salad and the Caesar Salad were comprised of Roman lettuce though the former had an Italian style dressing while the latter had an obvious Caesar dressing along with hot cheese puffs (the warm temperature a nice touch).
