great food eateries in Peterborough, Ontario
Ha, good luck. (I grew up in Peterborough; I feel I can say that.)
There's a place called something like Hot [Sauce? Pepper? something] Cafe on Water Street that's fine - kind of funky, with jambalaya and fish and stuff. And at the corner of Hunter and Water there's a slightly upscale place that the locals say is good.
Sorry I can't do any better for you; good luck.
Hot Bellied Mamas is great! And, it's been a loooong time since I ate regularly in Peterborough, but I've heard really good things about the greek place kitty corner to Trent Radio, where the Shish Kabob Hut used to be, at Water and Parkhill.
...ah, has it been that long since my Trent salad days...
Where to start?
Parkhill on Hunter for upscale
Old Bridge Inn (at Young's Point, just 20 minutes north east of Peterborough)-- seared foie gras done to perfection
Saporito's for great Italian
St. Veronus for Belgian beer and the best panninis
A Moveable Feast for the best coffee
Also, previous sous from Bymark is now at Irwin Inn (open for lunch and dinner to non-guests - call first)
Old Stone Brewery/Hot belly Mama's
Cosmic Charlie's for thai
La Hacienda for authenic mexican
Old Mill at Islandview resort (yuong's point) for the BEST patio!
Brio Gusto for eclectic wine pairings - same for Elements
Cervantes for spanish tapas
Ward Street Grill in Bridgenorth (just north of Peterborough)... Excellent sweet pot fries with an aoili dip...
Sushi - Matsu Sushi on Park st (i think) --- very good......
Thai - Karma's cafe on Hunter is supposed to be excellent and Cosmic Charlie's on Charlotte is good too.
Chinese..? That's a problem. Typical north americanized yack... If someone out there wants to come here and open an all day dim sum place, I promise my husband and I will be there once a week at least ;)
