Walk into Antler at 10pm on a Friday, and you’ll be able to try a late night menu featuring dishes like Venison Heart Poppers, Wild Boar Corndog and Duck Heart Yakitori. I got a sneak preview of this exciting menu at a media event and I have to admit I have never pushed myself to be this adventurous!!
Real talk though, it was both a fun and delicious experience! One of the highlights were the Duck Liver Paté served with crostini and wild blueberry compote. WOW, I was pleasantly surprised by the light and slightly salty taste of the paté, complemented by a touch of sweetness!
I also really enjoyed the Wild Boar Corndog – the house made sausage was ridiculously tasty and perfectly deep fried… YUM!
The late night menu is also Japanese inspired – you’ll see gyoza, takoyaki and yakitori on the menu. Not to mention a REALLY kick ass cocktail called Tsubomi Squeeze, featuring lemongrass infused sake, grapefruit liqueur, Aperol and lemon rhubarb bitters. I can drink it in gallons really, the flavours so delicate but not too sweet… It really made me nostalgic of my super dope Japan trip earlier this year.
Antler prides itself on serving locally sourced food, and you’ll see wild boar, deer and bison all over the menu. One thing that stands out to me… Bison Rib Eye!! What?! I’ll definitely be back to try that!!
