Cider House
391 Roncesvalles Ave.,
Toronto, Ontario M6R 2N1

With just shy of 30 ciders on the menu, this former curry house has been transformed into a cozy den outfitted in barn board walls and vintage license plates. Toque-wearing diners throw back flights of Ontario cider and tuck into gravy-soaked pub grub, like Newfie fries, loaded with seasoned breadcrumbs that taste like holiday stuffing, mushroom gravy and peas so perfectly blanched they pop. A massive helping of pork schnitzel (though it also comes in rib eye, chicken and eggplant versions) is sided with smashed, double-baked and breaded, cheesy, spicy potatoes, and a choice of four gravies. Butter chicken with basmati and naan is a hold-over from the joint’s previous incarnation—sadly it’s more sentimental than sensational. With only two servers on deck and one cook in the kitchen (who, on some nights, plays dishwasher, too) service is bumpy and a tad harried.
