Because as Canadians we cherish our summers (we don’t get much of it) we are patio hounds. And just as much as we are summer lovers we – at Coco & Cowe – are equal parts lovers of food, especially pizza! Last week we heard Boston Pizza had launched their new summer menu and knowing they also have a pretty patio, we zipped right over to give it a try.
We try to get out as a team for a lunch every few weeks to de-stress and reconnect. With all of the work we have to tackle we occasionally forget that we actually like each other and thankfully this was a hit!
The new summer menu at BP was stacked with enticing options so we did it ‘family style’ and basically ordered everything. We started with the new Handcrafted Quenchers, BP’s newest sparkling beverage. SRefreshing, made with all-natural flavors and no added sugar, they are the perfect way to cool down on a sunny patio. The Quenchers are available in three flavours; Black Raspberry, Cucumber & Lime and Mango & Ginger. My favourite was definitely Black Raspberry, but coming in at only 45 calories, I would order each flavor again (and again and again).
We shared a beautiful shrimp salad, tacos, a chicken salad, a light flatbread and of course, the most enticing item, the MVB (Most Valuable Burger). I’ve never thought about getting a burger at Boston Pizza in the past but I’m so glad we tried this MVB. The 100% Canadian beef patty is perfectly seasoned with salt and pepper and blanketed with real Canadian cheddar. The all-star entrée is topped with fresh garnish, BP’s signature cactus dip and served on a brioche bun. BP is officially my new go-to spot for a fresh, delicious burger. We were feeling adventurous (and hungry) so we also split a pizza burger. Yes, a burger patty, stuffed with tomato sauce, cheese, pepperoni all wrapped in the most delicious freshly baked pizza dough. *drools*
What’s dinner without dessert? Our server suggested we try the new Dessert Burger, it sounded so unique we had to give it a taste. Rich vanilla ice cream on top of chocolate ganache and sandwiched on a sweet potato bun, if I could have taken a second order to go, I definitely would have. I loved this cool treat; it was a great way to cap an amazing meal.
The new summer menu at Boston Pizza is packed with delicious bites and totally worth a visit. Whether with a group of friends, some of your favourite co-workers or family check it out!
