Verses Restaurant- Kitchener Waterloo


I recently went on a day trip with my elderly aunt and uncle. The idea was to view Ontario train stations, have lunch and visit a streetcar museum.
A bit low action but I thought it would be pleasant and a chance to spend some time with them.
Curious difference in age groups 10,20,30 years apart.
Seems this groups idea of visiting these train stations was to view them thru the windows of the big bus, the rolling couch.
But really once you have seen one train station you’ve seen them all unless it’s something special like Union Station.

Anyway lunchtime rolled around and we arrived at our lunch destination.
A restuarant called Verses in Kitchener/Waterloo area.
Our choices were beef or chicken. I had rung ahead as I need gluten free, dairy free meals.
They said they would handle it and they sure didn’t disappoint.

I had called several days ahead to order. They provided me with gluten free bread and brought olive oil and balsamic to the table for the dipping… it was a real yum. This was astounding to me usually I just sit there and wait for everyone to enjoy their bread while waiting on the appetizer but I got to dig in this time. None of the other High End restaurants has every gone this country mile for a customer that I know of.

I was very impressed with their Chef at this point. Second course was the roast beef which was excellent thick slices of beef with au jus gravy roasted fingerling potatoes and beautifully done fresh veg. Some of my tablemates had the chicken which looked equally excellent.

The piece de resistance was the dessert. My tablemates had a chocolate mousse, I was treated to a frozen raspberry ice desert, covered in a sort of a ball with a meringue (baked egg whites) delish fruit sauce drizzled on the platter. They knocked my socks off. It was truly outstanding and the very first time I have ever been able to eat desert outside the house.

Five stars to this restuarant.

If you are in the Kitchener Waterloo area check out this chef.. he is exceptional and so is their desert chef.
Prices are up there and it is definitely in the fine dining region but well worth the price.

After lunch we went to visit a streetcar museum. A bunch of guys who got together back in the 50’s and started buying streetcars. So if you have ever had a dream about riding on a turn of the century streetcar through the woods instead of through city streets here’s more info Streetcar Museum
