An Appetizing Spread at Milestones
Exactly one week ago today I turned 23. While Taylor Swift wasn't singing about my birthday this year, I definitely had a lovely week of surprises, food and celebrations with family and friends!
On Thursday, my mum and I met for an after-work dinner at one of our favourite spots: Milestones. I typically go to Milestones for their brunch menu (which I did on Saturday) because I'm addicted to their avocado and shrimp eggs benny. Since we couldn't decide between entrees, we decided on a spread of appetizers and it turns out they are half off on Thursdays.
Well, we definitely overestimated the amount of appetizers we would need and I ended up taking one of them home with me.
We both started with their french onion soup. It was an overflowing bowl of goodness. I love the cheesy layer on french onion soup and this one had the perfect amount of cheese to satisfy my tastebuds. I was already feeling pretty full after the soup, but I still had two other appetizers and desserts to go...
The Milestone's spinach and artichoke dip wasn't entirely what I was expecting. I was hoping for a cheesier flavour, but it had a bit more focus on the spinach and artichokes. I'm also not a big tomato fan, so I just ate around the salsa part on the top. I am a big chip fan though, so those were the perfect addition to the dip.
The Asian chicken bites were the real winner for me. I loved this appetizer! This plate had crispy chicken pieces and crunchy wontons tossed in slightly spicy sauce. There was also the surprising addition of refreshing cucumbers. I will definitely pick these up again.
Now, it wouldn't be a birthday without cake. I love birthdays at Milestones because they give you a big piece of cake for birthdays with a sparkler on top. While I was terrified of sparklers growing up, I think they're growing on me now.
Last year, I got a big chunk of chocolate cake from Milestones and this year was a delicious cheesecake with strawberries and chocolate. I think this lasted on the table for all of two minutes.
