Joey Broadway – Stress Release Part 1

This is Part 1 of a 3 part series covering our attempts to relieve the stress that we’ve been going through over the last month and a half.  Besides the usual work-related stress that we’ve been experiencing, we’ve recently had a fairly horrid experience with roofing work at our place (and the subsequent restoration work after experiencing a large leak caused by the roofers). 

A couple of our friends were going through some similar stress so we decided to meet up for dinner and drinks at Joey Broadway.  Am I the only one who thinks that the name “Joey Broadway” sounds weird?  For some reason, I want to call it “Joey‘s Broadway”.  Anyways, we’ve been here before and had some excellent service and food on our last visit.

The Stiff Lemonade is a a slushy, blue-hued drink made with vodka, limoncello, lemonade, and lime juice.  The virgin Mojito is equally refreshing with fresh mint, lime juice and soda.

A visit to Joey wouldn’t be the same without their Japanese-inspired sushi cones.  These are so addictive!

The Panang Prawn Curry Bowl had a satisfying amount of heat to the dish and a smooth and creamy red coconut curry sauce to complement the prawns and veggies in the dish.

The Rotisserie Roasted Chicken seems like such a simple dish but it’s very well executed and the chicken meat is quite juicy and tender.  Personally, it’s the chicken skin that really does it for me in this dish… winner winner chicken dinner!

What’s dinner without dessert?  And after 5 weeks into our 1-2 week roofing project (with no immediate end in sight), we really needed to indulge ourselves.  The Molten Lava Chocolate Soufflé is served with a raspberry coulis and vanilla bean ice cream.  It’s really a fun dish to watch as you break open the soufflé and watch the chocolate ooze out and mix with the ice cream.

The Individually Baked Apple Pie is just as it sounds like.  For some reason, we were expecting a slice of pie but this dish is actually a mini apple pie made with hand-folded puff pastry and caramel sauce.

The pumpkin-spiced donuts have been replaced by Italian Donuts that are powdered and served on top of lemon curd and vanilla mascarpone cream.

All-in-all, a pretty great meal… so much so that we decided to head out to Joey again the following night.  Stay tuned for Part 2 where we visit Joey Burnaby.
