French toast; hot, sugar-dusted and dressed with simple, honeyed syrup. Baguette french toast; all of the above and blessed with air pockets that collect all of that buttery, eggy goodness. The toast had a creamy, almost bread pudding like mouthfeel and crispy, golden edges. What I loved most was the strawberry mint salsa, which counterbalanced the sugariness. The cool from the fresh mint and strawberry sours really kept this personal favourite on the lighter side. On the other side, the spread of the vanilla whip added a delicate touch the to toast, giving it another subtle and complex flavour.
The grilled venison was rich in flavour with fine texture and perhaps, a little on the chewier side. However, it is meant to be leaner in comparison to beef so, it didn’t bother us. Oliver enjoyed the benny very, especially the mushrooms that accompanied, which were flavourful even in the hollandaise and ricotta. In the presence of the herbed ricotta, the hollandaise seemed sweeter in taste and more appetizing. The combination kept the benny from being too heavy, and probably was the reason why it was possible for Oliver to savour more of the delish potatoes.
Just like the name had suggested, Locus really was a focus of attention on Main street. The place was busy but cozy and relaxing, where everybody just enjoyed small chats and classic favourites. So, at the end of the day, we were happy to have found Locus and would love to go back for more delicious specials.
