It's the midst of mid-terms, I haven't slept in days, coffee is pumping through my veins, and I don't know if I have time to eat, when my friend Tammy asks, "Catherine is in town from England and we are going to Nirvana, you in?"
I look at my books, take a hit of my drug of choice from my Starbucks cup and say, "Of course I am!"
Across the street from Sneaky Dee's I enter Nirvana's front door with my friends Tammy, Catherine and her fiance Saul. For anyone that does not know of Nirvana, it is a lounge style restaurant located at the corner of College and Bathurst close to Kensington Market. This dimly lit bohemian venue displays expensive looking decor but contains a menu that is very inexpensive.
There are many things to try at Nirvana but there are a few things on the menu I would recommend for your first time.
Pita and Hummus
Exactly as the title states a plate with grilled pita and Hummus, which is good enough for me. I mean who doesn't love Hummus.
Avocado and Brie Sandwich
A beautiful combination of Brie cheese, avocado, lettuce and tomato, on whole wheat bread with a side of sweet potato fries for around seven dollars!
KLB Raspberry Wheat Beer
Nirvana offers a wide variety of cocktails, beer and wine, but be sure to try this amazing draft beer with a hint of raspberry.
Nirvana was very busy this past Tuesday night so I am sure this is a spot you would want to hit up if you are on the College strip on a Saturday night. And one last note before I forget..... Congrats to the newly engaged couple!!!!
