The holidays are over and it’s January- ugh. Feeling a little blah? Fight those blues with Jack Astor’s Winter Fling Festival, on until January 19th.
Five craft beers will be available at Jack Astors for your drinking pleasure. These beers are: Mill St. Organic Lager, Muskoka Cream Ale, Flying Monkey’s Hoptical Illusion Pale Ale, Granville Island Lions Winter Ale and Mill St. Tankhouse Ale.
Along with the beers are some tasty new dishes.
Holiday Brie Chicken ($17.97) is a festive double breast of chicken glazed with honey Dijon, surrounded by mashed potatoes and topped with brie.
As a huge fan of their fresh chicken strips, I was happy to sink into the new Cluckin’ Chicken Dippers ($9.82) Generous chunks of chicken breast are breaded and served up with dipping sauces and salts/spices to create your own mix! Sauces include Korean BBQ, Pineapple Boss and surprise hit Strawberry Bacon.
My second favourite is the Asiago Shrimp & Smoked Mozza Ravioli ($16.74). The combo of the Asiago crusted shrimp and the ravioli filling is amazing. It’s served with creamy tomato sauce and baby arugula. I wish they’d keep this on the menu permanently!
