I love to travel but because of the coronavirus, I have been constrained to the city of Toronto for the most part. I decided to take a small break during thanksgiving long weekend and go experience Blue mountain in the Fall. Fun Fact: I’ve actually never been and always wanted to go. During the summer everyone was either at Blue mountain or Niagara Falls. I’m glad I finally got the chance to go and bring to you all a Breakfast and dinner food review for the 3 days I was there.
For those that are not from Toronto or Ontario, Blue Mountains Resort is a resort located in the Blue Mountains near the city of Collingwood and Georgian Bay in Ontario. It is best known as a ski resort but over the years they have expanded to have more activities desirable all year long. There are tons of activities such as zip lining in the summer, hiking, Segway tours, gondola rides, and skiing in the winter. The Blue Mountain Village is where you can find boutiques, shops, restaurants, treats, and spas. Click here for more information on Blue Mountain.
Day 1: Dinner
We arrived in the afternoon, checked into our hotel, and decided to head out to the Village. As it was a 2 and a half hour drive from Toronto, we didn’t plan much on Day 1, we just wanted to take a look around, have dinner, head back and rest.
Because we’re still in the middle of a pandemic, masks were required within the Blue Mountain grounds which is for the best. A lot of the restaurants required reservations but some were walk in as well. The restaurant we went to did not require a reservation.
We went to Firehall Pizza and Co and ordered some pizza and pasta. I ordered the Jimmy the Greek pizza which included feta cheese, mozzarella, broccoli, zucchini, kalamata, olive, red onion, sun-dried tomato, and oregano. The combination of feta and olives made the pizza really sour for me. I wish they had balanced the two as it was a bit overwhelming. The pizza was doing a lot and I should of known by all the toppings but hey I decided to try something different.
The pasta was basically the pasta version of the pizza. A Pasta alla greco; chicken, marinated Roma tomato, roasted zucchini, feta, kalamata olive, red onion & spinach, in an aglio e olio white wine sauce.
Day 2 & 3: Breakfast
I grouped day 2 and 3 breakfast together because we basically had the exact same thing for breakfast both days. Blue mountain doesn’t have many sit down brunch spots, more coffee shops and baked goods. That’s why we had the same thing twice.
We went to Sunrise Grill, not exclusive to Blue Mountain. Large quantity of food for a decent price basically. We got french toast, eggs, bacon, toast, home fries, and steak. This breakfast was definitely filling but so satisfying (which is why we had it again the next day).
Day 2 Dinner:
This was our last dinner because we left to head back to Toronto after Day 3 brunch. This time I made reservations to Camino Taco. I like Mexican food but I am at times hesitant to order tacos because they seem expensive for the quantity. Often times I am left still feeling hungry. At Camino Taco, this was not the case.
We got the fries supreme; french fries topped with ground beef, queso, slaw, salsa verde, and lime crema. And taco trio barbacoa; braised beef brisket, cilantro lime basmati rice, green pepper onion, pickled jalapeno, chipotle lime crema. This meal was definitely satisfying and left me really full.
Their menu did feel a little limited with not a lot of options. For my tacos I wasn’t able to mix and match and had to order only 1 type for all 3 which was unfortunate.
I wasn’t overly impressed with any of the meals. Blue Mountain’s restaurant selection is very limited with minimal diversity or culinary excellence. I did enjoy the taco and my breakfast but they weren’t meals that amazed me.
Stay tuned for part 2 where I will be reviewing all the treats I had at Blue Mountain in the Fall. Check out my last review here on trying HotPot for the first time. Feel free to follow me @foodiie.diary on Instagram for more food adventures!
