Troll’s Restaurant: Tasty Food and Huge Servings
After a fun visit to Whytecliff Park, we headed to nearby Horseshoe Bay to grab some lunch and wound up at Troll’s. It’s hard to miss this popular eatery as it’s located right on the corner of Bay Street and Royal Avenue.
We were actually thinking of grabbing a light lunch so we ordered the Troll’s Chowder ($12 for the entrée size) and the Cod and Chips ($17 for 2 pieces + additional $6 for 2 pieces of fried oysters). Much to our surprise, when the food arrived at our table, we were taken aback by how large the soup and fish pieces were. The picture really doesn’t do it justice as it’s difficult to comprehend how huge the bowl of soup was.
Not only was the bowl of chowder huge, it was chunky and chock full of things like baby clams and double-smoked bacon. You can get this as either white or red chowder and we picked Manhattan which turned out very creamy and not overly tomatoey.
The batter on the cod and oysters was light and crisp which kept kept everything inside nice and juicy. They say that their fish and chips is “famous” and I won’t disagree with them. Underneath the generous portions of seafood, you’ve got a bed of addictive fries with a light crispness on the outside.
Is this place a bit of a tourist trap? Yes – but there’s a reason why they’ve been so successful for so many years… the food is good and the portion sizes will keep your belly full.
