AE'S on 118th
At AE'S on 118th, the eclectic international dishes—from pork- and corn-stuffed dim sum dumplings to baked brie with sweet peppers—are all grounded in a single culinary philosophy. The kitchen team values freshness and authenticity above all else, eschewing chemicals and preservatives in favour of natural herbs and ingredients that are locally-sourced whenever possible. From this foundation, they create an array of small plates and entrée-sized fusion dishes such as the My Guilty Pleasure—two belgian waffles topped with turkey, stuffing, and country gravy—and the panang chicken—onions, peppers, and chicken simmered in a Thai-spiced coconut cream and served over coconut basmati rice with naan bread. Vegan and vegetarian options abound, and visitors can pair their meals with vintages from the expansive wine list. The eatery also sates before-dinner munchies with hearty brunch plates, such as waffles crowned in pulled pork and spicy maple syrup.
