A Review - The Local Lounge in Summerland
We went to the Local Restaurant in Summerland a couple of nights ago, it's about a 15 minute drive from Penticton and definitely worth it. This is a fairly new restaurant in South Okanagan, that prides themselves in serving local foods, meats, produce and wines.
Our roommate Dharma took us out and once again we were treated to a great meal over looking Okanagan lake. A couple of my best students were working that night, it's always fun to see kids outside of school. We were initially seated in a booth and then when a table outside became available we moved out on to the patio.
We started with some adult beverages from the Cannery and then went to order. I enjoyed the Cherry spare ribs with Jalapeno corn bread and asparagus.
Katie got the halibut and chips
and Dharma ordered the amazing Local burger and fries.
We didn't have to wait too long and the food was amazing. I looked at the ribs and the meat fell off the bones - absolutely amazing, Katie's Halibut could be described as coated in crispiness, not batter and fish but just a little bit of batter and a whole lot of fish. Finally Dharma's burger was juicy and full of flavours.
For dessert we ordered the Chocolate cake, it was baked fresh after we ordered it and had this really sweet raspberry syrup drizzled on it.
Between three of us it didn't last long.
All in all it was a great night, the service was really good, the food and venue awesome and the company great!
