Thanksgiving Dinner @ O&B

Thanksgiving just isn't the same without turkey! This year, I continued my quest for the perfect traditional turkey dinner (because my mom doesn't like or cook turkey). I saw an online ad for O&B's Thanksgiving specials so I decided to give it a try. Upon arrival, I was surprised that this "Thanksgiving special" wasn't advertised at all at the restaurant, and we had to inquire about it. Luckily, we came just in time to sweep up the last two orders available for the night. This was our traditional roast turkey dinner with sage bread pudding, Yukon gold mashed potatoes, Brussel sprouts, Northern Ontario cranberry sauce and gravy. I definitely liked the dark meat better than the white meat because it was more moist and flavourful. The sage bread pudding was a little too salty on its own, but went well with sweet cranberry sauce (I love cranberry sauce!). Altogether, I liked the combination of all the different flavours.
The Thanksgiving dessert special was Niagara apple strudel with sweet spiced pumpkin gelato. I found the strudel to be mediocre, probably because I'm not a big fan of strudels. I much prefer apple pies or apple crumbles. However, the pumpkin gelato was a refreshing delight! I wished that it had been paired with a pumpkin pie. But all in all, it was a satisfying Thanksgiving meal and we were more than happy with it.
