Jack Tar

It was a dreary Saturday morning but some of us bloggers braved the rain and cold to go to this month’s #Brunchclub at Jack Tar. Jack Tar is in Wynyward Quarter close to the Viaduct Events Centre and Silo Park. I’ve been to a few places in Wynyard Quarter but I haven’t been to this restaurant yet.

The menu looked pretty good though and the service was nice and quick. We were close to the kitchen too so I was looking at the food coming out from there.

It came with a side of strawberries but to me it was okay. There was so much that I couldn’t finish it al.

Overall, I had a great time. My food expectations were high though and I think it’s because last month’s #brunchclub at LOOP was excellent. This place was alright and I wouldn’t mind going back there again but I will try a different dish. The service was pretty good though considering we were such a big group.

As for the bloggers, I was so glad I was able to meet new people! I sat in front of Ellen and Tara from Shop Style Conquer which I was happy about because I love their blog and Youtube channel.

I was also able to meet these awesome people:

I hope to meet more in the future. I still got a bit nervous as it’s only my second time going to a #brunchclub event but my experience so far has been great. I look forward to the next ones.

Speaking of food, I recently joined Zomato to review all the food places I’ve been to. Although I’m not specifically a food blogger, I am a big foodie and I love trying new places. If you’re not on Zomato yet, get on it! 🙂
