It’s been a while since Table 10 has been up and running in Regina. After an unfortunate frozen water pipe situation at their old location in Cathedral, the restaurant has moved to Quance Street out East (the old Mediterranean Bistro spot). I was really happy to see it back in action, and even happier to try it out when a co-worker suggested it for a work party.
Walking in, the decor is really great – modern and dark, and lots of open space.
The menu looked fantastic, with a lot of healthy and interesting options to choose from. I don’t need to eat gluten free, but if I did, Table 10 provides a lot of choice. I wanted to try out the menu a bit, so I chose a couple of dishes from the small plates menu.
First, I just had to try the Cornalitos – crispy fried smelts with chipotle tartar and chimichurri. I loved the little fried fish that David and I ate like fries in Barcelona and I wanted to see if this little fried fish were similar. They were delicious and really fun to eat, not as salty as what I had in Barcelona, but I really loved the chimichurri! The little salad with red peppers was also really lovely.
The next dish I tried was the beet, goat cheese and tomato stack. I love a good caprese stack and thought substituting the beet was a really interesting choice. I could have used more goat cheese to balance out the sweetness of the beets, but I enjoyed it.
The next time I come to Table 10, I am definitely going to try the steamed mussels with garlic saffron cream! The broth looked heavenly and overall wonderfully fresh.
I also didn’t try dessert, but the table raved about the belgium chocolate volcano cake looks a bit sloppy and gooey on the plate, but everyone raved about the deep chocolate flavour.
Other than losing a few months from the restaurant scene, Table 10 hasn’t lost anything in menu and flavour. While I am not a big fan of heading out east for dinner (I prefer more central locations, closer to where I live), I am sure I will make the effort to visit Table 10 again!
