When I first visited Fuel House (@FuelHouseTO) last summer, their menu was largely made up of sandwiches including a delicious pork belly banh mi and calamari po boy. However, they’ve recently changed the direction of their menu, turning to smaller sharing plates. A few weeks ago, I dropped by Fuel House to sample their new menu items and I couldn’t be happier with their new fare.
Fuel House is located onClinton street just off of College in Little Italy. It’s located in a small converted house and has a great patio out back – perfect for summer!
Now here’s a look at what we tried, starting with a bowl of Olives.
Pork Rillette. A small mason jar of a tasty rillette served with slices of bread from Woodlot.
Ranch Slaw. The salad consisted of fresh, crisp iceberg lettuce, blue cheese and the perfect amount of ranch dressing. I’m not a big fan of blue cheese but was surprised that the taste was quite mild. A very light, refreshing and enjoyable salad!
Potato and Green Bean Salad. Another great option for something on the lighter side. The potatoes and green beans were perfectly cooked and I loved the addition of the fried garlic.
Fries. Very addictive and generous with the garlic (which I absolutely loved!). If you’re having a beer, these fries are a necessity.
Seafood Platter. Now, how good does this look? Fresh, delicious crab legs and grilled corn covered in scallions and buttery goodness. And like the fries, the popcorn shrimp were addictive and would make for a fantastic bar snack. Each component was finger-licking good.
Buttermilk Fried Chicken & Sticky Pork Ribs. The skin of the fried chicken was nice and crisp and the meat was wonderfully moist. The chicken comes with two condiments – a sweet maple syrup and a sriracha BBQ sauce. While each condiment was tasty on its own, I preferred mixing them together. Sweet and savoury with a little bit of a kick!
As for the sticky pork ribs, I really enjoyed the flavour of them. And as you get closer the bone, the meat just gets more delicious!
Honey Cake. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect when I heard the dessert was honey cake but boy was it good! I really enjoyed the texture of the cake and the whole dish just reminded me of French toast. Served with a scoop of ice cream, it was the perfect way to end off the meal.
For those of you who enjoyed Fuel House’s old offerings as much as I did, rest assured that their new menu offerings are just as delicious!
