Dinner at Turtle Jacks: A Taste Of Burlington Fall 2020
05 Oct 2020
Growing up in Brampton, I remember frequenting the original Turtle Jacks with friends. We’d order beer and wings, and while waiting for our food to arrive, we’d snack on peanuts at the bar and watch our favourite sports on the big screens.
Fast forward several years later, Turtle Jacks has several locations, including two in Burlington.
This year’s Taste of Burlington prix-fixe dining program has been redesigned to keep the safety and comfort of its participants top of mind. We are in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has taken a toll on local businesses and restaurants. They need our support now more than ever before.
Take Out Dinner from Turtle Jacks
Wendy and Rachel had the Greek Salad to start.
For their main, they had the 4-Cheese Cajun Chicken Penne – Spinach, roasted red peppers, Creole alfredo, cheddar, mozzarella, feta, and asiago.
Lauren had a Fresh Greens Salad to start, and the Certified Angus Beef 8OZ Top Sirloin – Centre cut, onion straws, vegetables, and mashed potatoes.
I had Beef Barley soup to start, and the Yellow Coconut Curry Bowl – Shrimp, peppers, onions, carrots, bok choy, coconut rice, peanuts, cilantro, and black sesame seeds.
The desserts were fantastic!
The girls had Turtle Pie – a brownie covered with a layer of caramel & chocolate caramel mousse. Sprinkled w/ walnuts & chocolate flakes.
And I had this mouth watering Lake Rosseau Butter Tart – a house-made flaky pastry, a deliciously rich filling of pure butter & sweet brown sugar.
