Rogue Kitchen and Wet Bar

I have always been curious about Rogue Kitchen and Wet Bar since it is literally connected to the Waterfront skytrain station. Joey, Jacky and I decided that we wanted to go to Edgewater Casino after dinner, so the most convenient place was Rogue. The restaurant was gorgeous with a high ceiling, chandeliers, tones of dark and bronze lacquered the furniture and walls emitting a classy and mysterious vibe.

To start off our night, we had the Signature Cilantro Caesar (CAD7.99) concocted out of Smirnoff RED infused with cilantro, cumin, Tabasco, Worcestershire, clamato, and a pepperoni stick stuck straight into the drink. I’m a sweet drinks kind of girl so this salty mixture was not my favourite.

Instead I ordered the Frozen Bellini (CAD7.49), a mix of white rum, peach liquere, champagne peach slush, fuzzy peach candy and sangria. To me, it felt like drinking spiked peach juice and I’m sure that many girls would enjoy sipping on this sweet, fruity and chilled booze. They also added a peach fuzz on top of the drink!

Joey had the Lobster Mac and Cheese (CAD18.99) with fresh lobster meat buried deep in a four cheese mix. If I had to choose between this or The Mac Shack, Rogue’s mac and cheese is definitely lighter, simple yet heavenly. With the garden salad on the side to cleanse your palette and to take a break from the melted cheesiness was also a good call.

You’re literally digging into a cheesy crusted mountain looking for the pieces of succulent oceanic lobster gems.

If anything, the Bang Bang Chicken and Shrimp (CAD15.99) could have been named something else. Cooked in a rich yellow coconut curry with chili, the prawns, peppers, onions, squid, mushrooms, sticky rice, shaved coconut, and coconut chicken were fused with spices. Jacky got to a point that he didn’t even know what he was eating any more.

I ordered The 9.2 oz Rogue Burger (CAD13.99) with bacon, pickles, sweet relish, lettuce, cheddar, tomato, mayo and a house ground sirloin beef patty in between two toasted sesame buns. In my honest opinion, the beef patty was too dry. In addition, the bacon was also too salty and adding four full slices of pickles to the burger made it unbearable. I wouldn’t recommend ordering this when there’s a lobster mac and cheese or the curry chicken.

Thank you, but no thank you.
