Sauce Restaurant and Lounge
Mad Magazine’s freckled mascot, Alfred E. Neuman, once said: “We are living in a world today where lemonade is made from artificial flavours and furniture polish is made from real lemons.” This quote can be read at the top of Sauce Restaurant and Lounge’s menu, whose many dishes, which span small and large plates meant for sharing, serve as evidence of the eatery’s commitment to serving natural, seasonal ingredients from local sources. The evening tapas menu hits every major food group: startch, beef, veggies, poultry, and seafood. Guests share bites of phyllo wrapped brie and a bistro chicken sandwich, which stars the poultry of island farmouse in cowichan bay. The kitchen also prepares brunch every Sunday, fortified by steaming mugs of Oughtred Coffee.
