When deprived of flavourful sustenance, the mouth will often retaliate by shouting your bank-account number at sporting events or turning every sentence into a high-pitched jingle. Tame an unruly tongue with today’s Groupon to The Oakwood Café on Osborne Street. Choose between the following options:
- For $5, you get $10 worth of contemporary cafe fare and drinks during lunch before 3 p.m.
- For $10, you get $20 worth of contemporary cafe fare and drinks during dinner.
The Oakwood Café’s chefs create upscale twists on cafe favourites from the multifarious new menu, which includes vegetarian and gluten-free options. Take taste buds on a Hellenic sojourn with nibbles of the Greek burger ($12.99), in which a homemade hamburger patty, grilled chicken breast, or veggie patty defeats the rumblings of even the hungriest minotaur with an arsenal of feta cheese, black olives, and homemade tzatziki. The smothered chicken arrives at tables backstroking in a velvety bath of cream sauce dotted with islands of bacon and swiss cheese ($18.99), and a bed of pasta hoists top sirloin simmered in a red wine in the beef stroganoff ($13.99 for lunch; $17.99 for dinner). Chefs use a mayonnaise mortar between three tiers of shaved ham, fresh asparagus, and cheddar cheese in the country house sandwich ($11.99). Guests imbibe wine or a post-dinner treat in The Oakwood Café’s cheery yellow dining room festooned with an array of flowers and plants, which are often willing to split desserts.
