Heirloom Vegetarian Restaurant

For Miz Brown Sugar’s birthday this year we went to Heirloom Restaurant for dinner.  Heirloom is a vegetarian/vegan restaurant that I had wanted to try for a while but never got around to it, so this was a fantastic excuse to go.

Ginger Spritz, Feature Shrub, Classic Lemonade

We all started with drinks, all virgin.  From left to right is the Ginger Spritz ($6, made with ‘Frost Bites’ ginger syrup, sparkling water, and a touch of lemon), the Feature Shrub ($6, fresh seasonal fruit and apple cider vinegar based syrup, fresh mint, sparkling water), and the Classic Lemonade ($5)

Mine was the Feature Shrub, and honestly, I couldn’t taste what the seasonal fruit was.  All the drinks were very refreshing.

Avocado Frites

C-Dizzle and I shared an appy of Avocado Frites ($10.95) served with a creamy cilantro sauce.  I thought this was quite pricey for six wedges of avocado (making up one whole one I guess?).  Felt they were stingy with the sauce too.  And honestly this really wasn’t that spectacular.

The Royale with Cheese Burger

C-Dizzle and Miz Brown Sugar both got the Royale with Cheese Burger ($19.95, vegetarian Heirloom patty, caramelized onions, sautéed mushrooms, garlic aioli, iceberg lettuce, pickled cabbage, aged white cheddar served on a brioche bun with yam fries and house salad).

The Heirloom

I ordered The Heirloom ($20.95, Vegan Freekeh, millet, sautéed vegetables, agedashi tofu, yam and apple slaw, gado sauce).

I was excited for the gado sauce when I saw it on the menu but turns out there was just a small amount of it on top of the tofu so that wasn’t satisfying.  I also found the other sauce on the bottom a little but tart for my liking, however that’s not to say I didn’t enjoy the dish.

Honey Lemon Vanilla Cloud

C-Dizzle also picked the Honey Lemon Vanilla Cloud ($9.95) for dessert.  It’s described on the menu as ‘Toasted hazelnut crust with a lemon-poppyseed sauce, candied ginger and hazelnuts’.

I was offered a bite and it was super creamy and yummy.  We both decided that this was too dense to be called a cloud though, as it had the consistency of a thick, dense, not-so-airy mousse.

Chocolate Mint Cream Cake

Birthday girl also ordered a dessert to go – the Chocolate Mint Cream Cake ($9.95).

Overall I wasn’t incredibly impressed with Heirloom and I don’t think I’ll be back anytime soon.  What I did like about the place was the food presentation and the decor of the restaurant.  It was very comforting.
