On a sunny Father's Day Sunday we headed to Oakville, Ontario with no real plan in mind about where to eat. We did try the Stoney Bread Company, but they were packed. So we decided to just head back to the main strip and Bru caught our attention.
Bru is a large room with a bar right as you walk in. It is nicely decorated and feels welcoming. We had just missed the lunch crowd so there was just another family celebrating the day. Our server told us to take any table we wanted and we quickly found a banquet table and sat down.
She filed our water glasses right away and informed us that Sunday was $5 pints. I chose a Sawdust City Golden Beach Pale Wheat.
It had a lovely citrus scent and was very reminiscent of a really good wheat beer.
Edgar and I decided to share an appetizer. So we agreed on the Shrimp Po'Boys (3 miniature fried shrimp sandwiches with slaw and Sriracho mayo).
Really really good. The shrimp was lightly fried and flavourful. The slaw was excellent and the Sriracho mayo added the right amount of kick.
For my main, I decided to keep my South of France vacation memories alive by ordering the Mussel and Frites (steamed in a creole tomato sauce).
The frites came with a dill aioli for dipping which was delicate in flavour. The frites themselves were very nicely done. Definitely a good fry. The mussels were very fresh and the creole tomato sauce was quite delicious.
We were too full for dessert. Overall, this was a lovely Father's Day lunch. Bru is a nice spot for lunch if you are in the Oakville area.
