Whether you’re craving the classic taste of a Cosmopolitan, the decadent Chocolatini, or something more exotic like the Mojito, you’re in luck. With many different varieties of martinis to choose from, your thirst will not go unquenched. The Bungalow also serves up an assortment of wines and champagnes, including the famous Dom Perignon in case you are in the mood to celebrate.
No one ever accused The Bungalow of being a tired old neighbourhood pub. This distinctive lounge has a diverse menu, sure to appeal to any appetite. The favourite appetizer here are the Pork Dumpings with Lemongrass & Ginger, or try the fun ‘Uptown Poutine’, which consists of yams and braised Lamb. The grilled flatbreads are fun and come in a variety of types like Tiger Prawn Pesto or Tandoori Chicken with mango chutney. Feel like something light? Try the Classic Spinach salad, or the Arugula with seared scallop and red peppers and oven dried tomato. Yum!
Whether inside enjoying the darkened tones of the lounge, or out on the sheltered patio, The Bungalow is an entertaining establishment. It is a fantastic place to meet both old and new friends, or to grab a cold drink and watch the activity along 17th Avenue. Bungalow has also had its share of celebrities at its dark wooden tables, amid the smattering of candle light.
Tip: Have a sweet tooth? Try the coconut lime tartlet for dessert.
