REVIEW | BarFish Cocktail & Lounge

Blowfish Restaurant & Sake Bar on King West has extended their space to launch BarFish, their new cocktail bar & lounge.  With tasty drink creations by resident award-winning mixologist Nishan Nepulangoda and BlowFish menu favourites, we can see this new addition quickly become a hot spot in the King West neighbourhood.

 

The modern and sexy space with music by DJ's would be perfect for after-work cocktails or pre party drinks and bites. Although it's not a huge space, the bar is extended along one side with barstools as well as ample space for people to mingle against the exposed brick wall.

What I really enjoyed at the opening party were innovative Japanese-inspired drinks & bites:

Jalapeno Hamachi Roll
Avocado, tempura bits, cilantro, golden tobiko and sriracha kewpie

Brown Eyed Peas 
Brown rice, snowpeas, asparagus, sesame seeds & spicy kewpie

Spicy Tuna with Rock Shrimp
Apicy tuna, black sesame seed, hot garlic kewpie tossed in rock shrimp tempura

Spicy Tuna on crispy rice topped with jalapeño

Truffle Albacore Roll 
Albacore tuna paste, tiger shrimp &avocado, topped with garlic chip & truffle oil drizzle


Headed out for a night on the town? This new spot is a must!
