Classic Greek Flavours with a Twist
The star of the Mediterranean-inspired menu at Trofi is its hanging skewers. The visually stunning dish comes with various enticing, charbroiled options. Choose your desired protein such as chicken, pork, lamb, beef, and shrimp amidst fresh vegetables. Each midair brochette comes with fresh-cut Greek fries, rice, tzatziki, and pita. The surrounding atmosphere of the restaurant is aesthetically pleasing, but the food will draw the eye through its unique presentation. The show-stopping visuals of Trofi’s dishes will delight the taste buds. It is a new Mediterranean restaurant that is sure to amaze the Ottawa food scene. Be sure to try the Souvlaki Brochette when you stop in.
The Mediterranean restaurant also serves up their rendition of the classics well-loved throughout the style of fare.
- Phyllo wrapped spanakopita with feta and spinach.
- Grilled halloumi, moussaka with fennel slaw, and red onion chutney
- A lamb entrée covered with mint and pine nut pesto, paired with fries, rice, and fresh veggies
- Souvlaki brochette—these hanging skewers are worth mentioning twice. Once you try them, you are sure to agree.
These dishes come along with the rest of the well-rounded menu on offer by Trofi. The experts spearheading the new establishment breathe new life with their modern interpretations of Greek cuisine.
After dinner, there are indulgently delicious desserts waiting to wrap up your dining experience to perfection. The Ottawa restaurant has “ruby chocolate velvet” lined up for all the chocolate lovers out there, topped with an almond praline crunch and a ruby chocolate sauce. A fun touch of the dessert menu is its “inspired crème brulee,” always topped with brown sugar crunch but a rotating flavour that comes with the day’s dose of inspiration. This is followed by a lemon olive oil sweet loaf with toasted almond and pomegranate curd for those looking for a zing of citrus. And finally the “baklava + vanilla,” a required staple for any restaurant serving up Greek fare. Topped off with vanilla ice cream, Trofi does not disappoint on this classic Greek treat.
Sleek & Stylish with Cocktails to Match
The cocktail and wine list at Trofi are also worth spotlighting, as they offer a variety of balanced, well-curated offerings. With a robust wine list spanning various portion sizes, there is a perfect pairing at every price point. Almost half of the wine list comes in 5oz, or 8oz pours, and all wines are available by the bottle.
For the cocktail connoisseurs, there are plenty of options for every preference. A standout is the Greek Old Fashioned that combines a 7-year Metaxa, an amber coloured Greek liqueur based on brandy, with sugar, bitters, and orange for an Aegean twist on a highly lauded classic. Whether you’re looking for something spirit-forward or light and refreshing, Trofi is waiting with a perfect selection.
