Today is my first ever restaurant review and before you read any further I guarantee it’s going to show! You may wonder…. Am I versed in pretentious and sophisticated wordplay? Do I have a refined sense of taste and style? Have I any idea how to review a restaurant? Nope, to all of the above! Without further adieu, I, Michael McKinlay, give you the Cuckoo Coombs Restaurant Review!
First of all, I am not what you would call a “foodie.” In fact, I despise the term. It just sounds silly to me. Essentially, I subscribe to the “Get in my belly” (I hope you clicked on this link because it’s worth it.) philosophy.
Cuckoo in Coombs, Trattoria and Pizzeria is located at 2310 Alberni Hwy, Coombs, British Columbia. If you are at all familiar with Coombs, you will most likely have heard of the infamous Goats on a Roof Market. Cuckoo is part of the same tourist hot spot. After your meal, you’ll be able to burn calories shopping!
My lady friend and I started off with the Tomato & Onion Caprese salad. ($9.50) The salad featured fresh Bononcini cheese, capers, balsamic reduction and extra virgin olive oil. Certainly, a delicious salad.
Now down to the main event, Spaghetti Carbonaro. I’m a big boy so we ordered the “Family Platter Size” ($29.99.) Now, I don’t consider myself to have a refined sense of taste, but this dish was awesome. In fact, I’d say it was the best pasta dish that I’ve ever had. From the noodles to the sauce, everything about the dish was special.Finally, we finished with a delicious Cheesecake dessert.
All in all, I probably consumed about 10,000 calories that night. The total bill with tip came to $70.00 and included a glass of wine. I give this fine dining experience 4.5/5!
