Late in the summer, I was invited to experience everything Casino Rama has to offer. The games, concert venue, suites, spa, pool, and the 8 restaurants ( You can read more about my visit to Casino Rama here ) were all available to explore. And explore I did. I want to highlight the food of Casino Rama. The food was incredible. Every meal eaten was full of flavour, perfectly cooked, and presented with flair. After every meal, only empty plates were left. The best food I have ever had at a conference and quite possibly on vacation.
There are eight restaurants to choose from on site at Casino Rama. It is hard to pick my favourite but I would have to say St Germain’s Steakhouse has Instagram-worthy dinners, that taste as good as they look. Our welcome dinner at St Germain’s Steakhouse consisted of….
Plate after plate of gorgeous food came out to us. My favourite was the Roasted Sterling Silver Beef Striploin with a Horseradish Celeriac Puree, Maitake Mushrooms (delicious!!), Charred Local Carrots, Tempura Zucchini Flower with a Natural Jus. Typing these words have me wanting to jump in the car and head to Casino Rama now!
I would order the steak on my next visit to St Germain’s, however, the Grilled Ontario Pork Loin Chop, with Caramelized Apricot Chutney, Warm Leek & Goat Cheese Potato Salad, and Broccolini caught my eye on the menu. I am willing to bet that any choice made at St Germain’s is a safe bet (See what I did there? Bet… Casino… heehee).
Another dish from the Yard House that has “WOW!” factor is the Butter Chicken with Jasmine Rice, Pineapple Chutney, Butter Naan. If you order the butter chicken, I promise you will not leave hungry. You won’t be searching for the chicken in this dish because it’s filled with it. I would order this again and again. But… there is also a little pizza menu. The Margherita Pizza with Plum Tomato, Arugula, Bocconcini Cheese, Garlic Oil and Fresh Basil was the perfect late night snack with some fabulous bloggy friends.
On my next visit to the Simcoe Yard House, I WILL be trying The Ultimate Steak Sandwich Striploin on Garlic Toast with Arugula, Crispy Onions, Blue Cheese, Peppercorn Sauce, and a side of Yard House Fries. I may have to create a copy-cat version of this sandwich.
Another sure bet at Casino Rama (see I did that thing again) is you will find something to ease your cravings and hunger at Couchiching Court. Couchiching Court is a buffet restaurant SO big it requires a map. The stations are consistently replenished so the food is fresh and hot. The carvery has tender, juicy roast beef simply melts in your mouth. There are so many desserts to choose from but do not leave without trying a donut.
A sure sign bloggers love the food! Do not be alarmed if they’re not eating it, they have to photograph it first.
If you are heading out to Casino Rama, make sure you grab a bite to eat, you will not be disappointed.
