Being a work-at-home guy, I'm fortunate enough to be able to regularly sample Denman Street's variety of lunchtime offerings. Acacia has been a favourite of mine for a long time now.
Their lunchtime specials never disappoint. The main attraction consists of a flaky, burrito-sized fillo pastry containing a tasty filling - steak and mushrooms, halibut and shrimp, salmon, turkey slices, or others. It's a generous portion, and it's accompanied by the tastiest crispy-on-the-outside, tender-on-the-inside mix of diced sweet potatoes and regular potatoes. Soup or salad is also included, and I usually go for the soup - always homemade and usually quite delicious (my favourite is the hearty tomato).
They also have a variety of desserts which I have yet to scratch the surface of, but have always been happy with anything I've tried - the vanilla cake I had today was superb, sweet yet light.
The lunch special with a drink is just around $10 - a super deal.
Acacia will continue to be one of my regular lunchtime spots!
