Mulligatawny Soup
Mulligatawny (from the Tamil for “pepper broth”) was originally a lightly-spiced chicken soup crafted to appeal to the English colonialists in the era of the British Raj. Exported back to Britain with returning expats, variations on this dish have since become a Commonwealth favourite from Australia to Scotland. Chef Greg’s version is vegetarian, with brimming with seasonal vegetables, red lentils and Ambrosia apples in a rich broth infused with Indian curry spices.

Mandalay Mango Salad
English Coleslaw meets Thai mango salad meets Indonesian Gado Gado… A summer bowl of crunchy cabbage, shredded choy, cucumber, daikon, cilantro and green onions, topped with crispy shallots, roasted peanuts and shredded coconut, in a spicy tropical dressing made with Chef Greg’s No Refund Mango Mamba Hot Sauce.

Trenchtown Jerk Bowl 
Trenchtown – the Jamaican neighbourhood that was the birthplace of Reggae and Bob Marley – inspires this modern take on classic Jerk Chicken, with a sticky, sweet & spicy glaze infused with thyme, allspice, and hot pepper. Served with coconut rice & peas, and braised greens with yams.

Also available #vegetarian with seasonal vegetables in a curry coconut rundown.

Sticky Date Empire Cake
Dark & sticky “toffee pudding” — date cake glazed with a salted caramel sauce

It would not be hyperbole to suggest that Greg Couillard is one of the most influential chefs in Toronto’s culinary history. Through groundbreaking restaurants like The Parrot, Stelle, Avec, Sarkis, The Spice Room and many others, his prescient embrace of this city’s multicultural flavours and ingredients revolutionized fine dining in Toronto, and foreshadowed the eclectic, international menus many now take for granted. Chef Greg’s latest project includes a new line of hot sauces called No Refund — Too Hot? Too Bad!
