Down the rabbit hole at the White Rabbit
To eat, or not to eat? That is the question we went out to answer.
This month we chose to eat at White Rabbit, a lovely spot just a stone’s throw away from Laurier at 47 King Street North.
One short bus trip on the 7 will take you to this cozy restaurant and bar that offers food, beverages (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic), live music and an overall good time.
To begin our meal, we ordered their Rabbit classic cocktails – fruity and flavourful — the Rabbit Sour and Black Sabbath; both short of $10.
As we enjoyed the plethora of T.V.s and music available at the venue, we ordered a Rabbit signature – their arugula and artichoke dip.
Although portioned small and not stacking up to the head honcho of appetizer dips (Wilfs spin dip), it packed a nice punch of savoury flavours.
It also featured some of the best and most seasoned chips we have ever experienced at a restaurant.
Chips took stage over the aforementioned dip.
From there, Lizzie enjoyed a fan favourite — fish tacos with a side of caesar salad.
The combination of spice and zing added to a wonderful collection of flavour profiles.
Any university student looking for a filling meal will find it with this dish.
Andrew ordered the crispy chicken sandwich with a side of chips combined with guacamole and sour cream.
Again, the chips were a major highlight (especially in harmony with a refreshingly spicy guac), but the sandwich with all the fixings was also highly enjoyable.
Overall, White Rabbit is a convenient and moderately priced, go-to spot for any university student.
It would be an excellent place to sit down and have a couple drinks with friends.
